Revelation 17

1

Saza seza esinye sazo izithunywa zezulu zosixhenxe,ezineengqayi zosixhenxe, sathetha nam, sisithi kum, Yiza apha,ndikubonise ukugwetywa kwalo ihenyukazi elikhulu, elihleli phezu kwawo amanzi amaninzi;

2

abahenyuze nalo ookumkani bomhlaba, abo bawumiyo umhlaba,banxiliswa yiwayini yobuhenyu balo.

3

Sandisa entlango ndikuMoya; ndabona inkazana ihleli phezu kwerhamncwa elimfusa, lizele ngamagama onyeliso, lineentloko ezisixhenxe neempondo ezilishumi.

4

Yaye inkazana leyo ithiwe wambu ngengubo ebomvu nemfusa,ihonjiswe ngegolide, nelitye elinqabileyo, neeperile, inendebe yegolide esandleni sayo, izele ngamasikizi nezingcoliso zobuhenyu bayo.

5

Ebunzi kubhalwe igama elithi, imfihlelo, iBhabheli enkulu,unina wamahenyukazi nowamasikizi omhlaba.

6

Ndayibona inkazana leyo inxila ligazi labangcwele, naligazi lamangqina kaYesu. Ndamangaliswa ngokumangaliswa okukhulu ndakuyibona.

7

Sathi kum isithunywa sezulu, Umangaliswe yini na?Ndokuxelela mna imfihlelo yenkazana le, neyerhamncwa eli liyithweleyo, lineentloko ezisixhenxe neempondo ezilishumi.

8

Irhamncwa owalibonayo laye likho, alikho; liza kunyuka liphume enzonzobileni, limke liye entshabalalweni. Baya kumangaliswa abo bemiyo phezu komhlaba, abamagama angabhaliweyo encwadini yobomi kuseloko kwaba sekusekweni kwehlabathi,belibona nje irhamncwa elaye likho, elingekhoyo, likho noko.

9

Nantsi ingqiqo enobulumko. Iintloko ezisixhenxe ezi ziintaba ezisixhenxe, ehleli phezu kwazo inkazana leyo.

10

Kananjalo zona zingookumkani abasixhenxe. Abahlanu bawa,omnye ukho, omnye akakafiki; xa athe wafika, umelwe kukuhlala umzuzwana.

11

Irhamncwa elaye likho, elingekhoyo, lona lingowesibhozo okwangowabasixhenxe; umka aye entshabalalweni.

12

Iimpondo ezilishumi owazibonayo zingookumkani abalishumi,bona abo bangekamkeli bukumkani, basuka bamkele,njengookumkani, igunya lelixa elinye kunye nerhamncwa.

13

Aba banasicamango sinye, babeya kunikela amandla negunya labo kulo irhamncwa.

14

Aba baya kwenza imfazwe neMvana. IMvana iya kubeyisa,ngokuba inguNkosi kankosi, inguKumkani kakumkani; baya kweyisa nabo banayo, babiziweyo, banyuliweyo, bathembekileyo.

15

Sithi kum, Amanzi owawabonayo, apho lihleli khona ihenyukazi, ngabantu, nezihlwele, neentlanga, neelwimi;

16

iimpondo ezilishumi owazibonayo ziserhamncweni, ngabo baya kulithiya ihenyukazi, baliphanzise, balihlube, bayidle inyama yalo, balitshise ngomlilo.

17

Kuba uThixo ubeke ezintliziyweni zabo ukwenza ingcinga yakhe, benze ngcinga-nye, babunike irhamncwa ubukumkani babo,ade azaliseke amazwi kaThixo.

18

Inkazana owayibonayo nguloo mzi mkhulu, ulawula ookumkani bomhlaba.
