1

Vuka, vuka, nxiba amandla akho, Ziyon! Nxiba iingubo zakho zokuhomba, Yerusalem, mzi ungcwele! Kuba akuyi kuba saphinda kungene kuwe ongalukanga, noyinqambi.

2

Zivuthulule uthuli; suk’ ume, hlala phantsi, Yerusalem;zikhulule iimbophelelo zentamo yakho, mthinjwa, ntombi inguZiyon.

3

Ngokuba utsho uYehova ukuthi, Kwathengiswa ngani ngelize;aniyi kuhlawulelwa nikhululwe ngamali.

4

Kuba itsho iNkosi uYehova ukuthi, Abantu bam behla baya eYiputa ekuqaleni, ukuba baphambukele khona; ke ama-Asiriya abacudisa kungekho sizathu.

5

Kaloku ke yintoni na enamapha, utsho uYehova, bethatyathwe ngelize nje abantu bam? Abalawuli babo bayabhomboloza, utsho uYehova; igama lam lihlala ligitywa imini yonke.

6

Ngako oko abantu bam baya kulazi igama lam; ngako oko baya kwazi ngaloo mini ukuba ndinguye lowo uthi, Ndingokhoyo.

7

Hayi, ukuba zintle kwazo ezintabeni iinyawo zabashumayela iindaba ezimnandi, zabavakalisa uxolo, zabashumayela iindaba ezilungileyo, zabavakalisa usindiso; zabathi kwiZiyon,Uyalawula uThixo wakho!

8

Phulaphula ilizwi lababoniseli bakho. Baliphakamisa kunye ilizwi, bayamemelela; ngokuba bekubona iliso kwiliso ukuyibuyisa kukaYehova iZiyon.

9

Gqobhokelani ekumemeleleni kunye, manxuwa aseYerusalem;ngokuba uYehova ubathuthuzele abantu bakhe, uyihlawulele wayikhulula iYerusalem.

10

UYehova uyihlubile ingalo yakhe engcwele emehlweni eentlanga zonke; zonke iziphelo zehlabathi ziya kulubona ke usindiso loThixo wethu.

11

Mkani, mkani, phumani apho; musani ukuphatha nto iyinqambi; phumani phakathi kwayo; zenzeni nyulu, nina bathwali beempahla zikaYehova.

12

Ngokuba aniyi kuphuma buphuthuphuthu, nihambe ngokusaba;kuba uYehova uhamba phambi kwenu, uMqoshelisi wenu nguThixo kaSirayeli.

13

Yabonani, umkhonzi wam uya kwenza ngengqiqo, uya kuphakama, athi gqi, anyuke kakhulu.

14

Kwanjengokuba babemangaliswa nguwe abaninzi (ibinje ukonakala imbonakalo yakhe, ukuda ingabi yeyomntu, nesithomo sakhe ukuda singabi sesoonyana baka-Adam):

15

ngokunjalo yena uya kubetha zithi makatha iintlanga ezininzi; ngenxa yakhe ookumkani baya kuthi khamnqa; ngokuba baya kukubona abangazanga bakubaliselwe, bakugqale abangazanga bakuve.
