Kwathi emveni kokuba njalo, wafa ukumkani woonyana baka-Amon; wangukumkani uHanun, unyana wakhe, esikhundleni sakhe.

2

Wathi ke uDavide, Mandimenzele inceba uHanun, unyana kaNahashe, njengokuba noyise wandenzelayo inceba. Wathumela uDavide ngesandla sabakhonzi bakhe ukumkhuza ngaye uyise. Beza ke abakhonzi bakaDavide ezweni loonyana baka-Amon.

3

Bathi abathetheli boonyana baka-Amon kuHanun inkosi yabo,Ucinga ukuba uDavide uzukisa uyihlo na emehlweni akho, ngokuba ethume abakhuzi kuwe? UDavide akabathumele na abakhonzi bakhe kuwe ukuze awugocagoce umzi, awuhlole, awubhukuqe?

4

Wabathabatha ke uHanun abakhonzi bakaDavide, wabaguya elinye icala leendevu zabo, wazicanda phakathi iingubo zabo ezinde, wada waya kuma ngemisekela, wabandulula ke.

5

Waxelelwa uDavide; wathuma izigidimi zokubakhawulela;ngokuba amadoda lawo abehlaziswe kunene. Wathi ukumkani,Hlalani eYeriko, zide zihlume iindevu zenu, nandule ukubuya.

6

Babona oonyana baka-Amon ukuba bazinukisile kuDavide,bathumela ke oonyana baka-Amon, baqesha kuma-Aram aseBhete-rehobhi, nakuma-Aram aseTsobha, amashumi amabini amawaka angumqikela; nakukumkani waseMahaka iwaka lamadoda;nakumadoda aseTobhi ishumi elinamabini lamawaka amadoda.

7

Weva uDavide; wathuma uYowabhi enomkhosi wonke wamagorha.

8

Baphuma oonyana baka-Amon, bakha izintlu zokulwa ekungeneni kwesango; ama-Aram aseTsobha, nawaseRehobhi, namadoda aseTobhi,nawaseMahaka aba wodwa endle.

9

Wabona uYowabhi ukuba imfazwe ibheke kuye, ngaphambili nangasemva, wanyula emadodeni onke ahleliweyo kwaSirayeli,wakha uluhlu malunga nama-Aram.

10

Abanye abantu wabanikela esandleni sika-Abhishayi,umninawa wakhe, wabakha baluluhlu malunga noonyana baka-Amon.

11

Wathi, Ukuba ama-Aram athe andeyisa, wondisiza; ukuba bathe oonyana baka-Amon bakoyisa, ndoza kukusiza.

12

Yomelela, somelele ngenxa yabantu bakowethu, nangenxa yemizi yoThixo wethu; uYehova enze oko kulungileyo emehlweni akhe.

13

Weza uYowabhi nabantu ababenaye, walwa nama-Aram; asaba ebusweni bakhe.

14

Babona oonyana baka-Amon ukuba asabile ama-Aram, basaba nabo ebusweni buka-Abhishayi, bangena ekhaya. Wabuya ke uYowabhi koonyana baka-Amon, weza eYerusalem.

15

Abona ama-Aram ukuba agxothiwe phambi kwamaSirayeli,ahlanganisana ndawonye.

16

Wathumela uHadadezere, wawarhola ama-Aram abephesheya koMlambo, eza eHelam; uShobhaki, umthetheli womkhosi kaHadadezere, ephambi kwawo.

17

Kwaxelwa kuDavide; wahlanganisa amaSirayeli onke, wayiwela iYordan, waya eHelam. Akha izintlu ama-Aram malunga noDavide,alwa naye.

18

Asaba ama-Aram ebusweni bamaSirayeli. UDavide wabulala kuma-Aram amakhulu asixhenxe abeenqwelo zokulwa, namashumi amane amawaka abamahashe. Waxabela noShobhaki, umthetheli womkhosi wawo, wafela khona.

19

Bonke ookumkani abakhonza uHadadezere babona ukuba bagxothiwe phambi kwamaSirayeli, baxolelana namaSirayeli,bawakhonza. Oyika ke ama-Aram ukuba sabasiza oonyana baka-Amon.
