Rufu ruchasanangurwa kupfuura hupenyu navose vakasara panzvimbo dzose kwandakavadzingira" ndizvo zvinotaura Jehovha wehondo.

Kutsauka kwavanhu vaJehovha nokurohwa kwavo

Zvino unofanira kuti kwavari, "Zvanzi naJehovha, `Ko vanhu vangawa, vakasazomukazve here? Munhu ungatsauka, akasazodzoka here?' Zvino vanhu ava veJerusaremu vakadzokereiko nokudzokera kusingatongoperi? Vanonamatira kunyengera, vanoramba kudzoka. Ndakateerera, ndikanwa, asi havana kutaura zvakarurama; hakuna munhu unochema kuipa kwake, achiti, `Ndaiteiko?' Mumwe nomumwe unotsauka nenzira yake, sebhiza rinomhanya kwazvo pakurwa. Zvirokwazvo, zimudo, riri kudenga, rinoziva nguva dzaro dzakatarwa, nenjiva nenyenganyenga nekondo dzinorangarira nguva yokuuya kwadzo, asi vanhu vangu havazivi murayiro waJehovha. Munoreva seiko, muchiti, `Takachenjera, murayiro waJehovha tinawo? Asi tarirai, peni yenhema yavanyori inonyengera.' Vanhu vakachenjera vakanyadziswa, vakavhunduka nokubatwa; tarirai, vakaramba shoko raJehovha, zvino vane njere dzakadiniko? 10 Naizvozvo ndichapa vamwe vakadzi vavo, neminda yavo ndichaipa vamwe vachaiita yavo; nokuti mumwe nomumwe wavo, kubva kuvaduku kusvikira kuvakuru, mumwe nomumwe unokarira fuma; kubva kuvaporofita kusvikira kuvapirisiti mumwe nomumwe unoita nokunyengera. 11 Vakangopodza vanga romukunda wavanhu vangu zvishoma, vachiti, `Rugare, rugare!' Izvo hakuna rugare.

12 "Ko vakanyadziswa nguva yavakaita zvinonyangadza here? Kwete, havana kutongonyara, vakakoniwa kucheneruka; naizvozvo vachawa pakati pavanowa; panguva yokurohwa kwavo vachagumburwa ndizvo zvinotaura Jehovha.

13 "Ndichavapedza chose," ndizvo zvinotaura Jehovha; "Hakungavi namazambiringa pamuzambiringa, kana maonde pamuonde, namashizha achaoma ndakaraira vachavakukura.

14 "Tinogarireiko pasi? Unganai, tipinde mumaguta akakomberedzwa, tifirepo; nokuti Jehovha Mwari wedu wakatiuraya, akatipa mvura inouraya kuti tiinwe; nokuti takatadzira Jehovha. 15 Takanga takatarira rugare, asi hakuna chakanaka chakasvika; takanga takatarira nguva yokuporeswa, asi tarirai, takavhunduswa. 16 Kufembedza kwamabhiza ake kwakanzwika achiri paDhani; nyika yose yakadedera nenzwi rokurira kwaane simba ake; nokuti asvika, apedza nyika nezvose zvirimo, neguta navose vageremo.

17 "Nokuti tarirai, ndichatuma pakati penyu nyoka nemvumbi, dzicharamba kuroyiwa; dzichakurumai," ndizvo zvinotaura Jehovha.

18 Haiwa, dai ndaigona hangu kuzvinyaradza pakuchema kwangu ! moyo wangu waziya mukati mangu. 19 Inzwai, inzwi rokuchema kwomukunda wavanhu vangu, rinobva kunyika iri kure-kure, richiti, "Ko Jehovha haazi muZiyoni here? Mambo waro haazi mukati maro here? Vakanditsamwisireiko nezvifananidzo zvavo zvakavezwa, nezvavatorwa zvisina maturo?" 20 "Kucheka kwapera, zhizha rapfuura, asi tigere kuponeswa." 21 ini ndinokuvadzwa nokuda kwokukuvadzwa kwomukunda wavanhu vangu; ndinochema, ndabatwa nokuvhunduswa. 22 Ko hakuna muti webharisami muGiriyadhi here? Hakune n’anga ko here? Nokuti mukunda wavanhu vangu wakagoregerei kupodzwa?
