"Ndichaparadza chose zvinhu zvose zviri pasi pose ndizvo zvinotaura Jehovha. Ndichaparadza vanhu nezvipfuwo; ndichaparadza shiri dzokudenga, nehove dzegungwa, nezvigumbuso pamwechete navakaipa; ndichabvisa vanhu pasi pose ndizvo zvinotaura Jehovha.

"Ndichatambanudzira ruoko rwangu kuna Judha, nokuna vose vagere Jerusaremu; ndichabvisa vakasara vaBhaari panzvimbo ino, nezita ravaKemarimi pamwechete navapirisiti; navanonamata hondo dzokudenga pamatenga edzimba, navanamati, vanopika naJehovha vachipikawo naMarikami; navakadzoka pakutevera Jehovha, navasina kutsvaka Jehovha kana kumubvunza.

"Nyararai pamberi paIshe Jehovha, nokuti zuva raJehovha rava pedo; vakakokwa naye wakavaita vatsvene. Zvino nezuva rechibayiro chaJehovha ndicharova machinda navanakomana vamambo, navose vakapfeka nguo dzavatorwa. Nezuva iro ndicharova vose vanodarika chikumbaridzo, vanozadza imba yatenzi wavo nokupambara nokunyengera.

10 "Zvino nezuva iro, ndizvo zvinotaura Jehovha, kuchanzwika mhere inobva pasuo rehove, nokuchema kunobva kurutivi rutsva rweguta, nokukoromoka kukuru kunobva kumakomo , 11 Chemai imi mugere Makiteshi; nokuti vanhu vose veKenani vapera, vose vakanga vakafuma sirivha vabviswa. 12 Zvino nenguva iyo ndichanzvera Jerusaremu nemwenje; ndicharova varume vagere pamasese avo, vanoti mumwoyo yavo, `Jehovha haangaiti zvakanaka, uye haangaiti zvakaipa.' 13 fuma yavo ichaitwa zvakapambwa, nedzimba dzavo matongo; zvirokwazvo, vachavaka dzimba, asi havangagarimo; vachasima minda yemizarnbiringa, asi havanganwi waini yayo.

14 "Zuva guru raJehovha rava pedo, rava pedo, rinokurumidza kwazvo, iro inzwi rezuva raJehovha; mhare inochemapo zvikuru kwazvo. 15 Zuva iro izuva rokutsamwa, zuva rokutambudzika nokumanikidzwa, zuva rokurashwa nokuparadzwa, zuva rerima nerokusviba, zuva ramakore nerezarima guru, 16 zuva rehwamanda neremhere, zvinoridzirwa maguta akakomberedzwa namasvingo neshongwe dzakakwirira.

17 "Ndichauyisira vanhu kumanikidzwa, kuti vafambe samapofu, nokuti vakatadzira Jehovha; ropa ravo richadururwa seguruva, nenyama yavo sendove.

18 "Sirivha yavo kunyange ndarama yavo hazvingagoni kuvarwira nezuva rokutsamwa kwaJehovha; asi nyika yose ichapedzwa nomoto wegodo rake; nokuti achapedza, zvirokwazvo achapedza zvinotyisa, vose vagere panyika.
