Yehova atila kuli imwe, ‘Mwitiina+ nangu ukuba no mwenso pa mulandu wa ili ibumba ilikalamba; pantu ubulwi te bwenu, lelo bwa kwa Lesa.+ 16  Mailo mukaye ku kubalwisha. Moneni bakeshila pa mupata wa pa Sisi; kabili mukabasanga ku mpela ya mupokapoka pa ntanshi ya matololo ya Yeruele. 17  Tamwakalweko+ muli ubu bulwi. Tantameni, iminineni shilili+ no kumona ifyo Yehova akamupususha.+ Mwitiina nelyo ukuba no mwenso,+ mwe bena Yuda na mwe ba mu Yerusalemu. Mukaye kuli bena mailo, kabili Yehova akaba na imwe.’”+ 18  Awe Yehoshafati alikonteme no kushimpa icinso cakwe pa nshi,+ na bena Yuda bonse na bekashi ba mu Yerusalemu baliwile pa nshi kuli Yehova no kukontama kuli Yehova.+ 19  E lyo abena Lebi+ aba mu bana ba kwa Kohati+ na ba mu bana ba kwa Kora+ baliminine pa kuti batashe Yehova Lesa wa bena Israele ne shiwi ilikalamba nga nshi.+ 20  Kabili baimine ulucelocelo no kuya ku matololo+ ya ku Tekoa.+ Kabili ilyo balefuma, Yehoshafati aliminine no kutila: “Ng’umfweni, mwe bena Yuda na imwe mwe bekashi ba mu Yerusalemu!+ Cetekeleni+ Yehova Lesa wenu pa kuti mukekale imyaka iingi. Cetekeleni bakasesema+ bakwe e lyo mwalacimfya.” 21  Kabili, apandene amano+ na bantu no kubika aba kwimbila+ Yehova na ba kulumbanya+ mu fya kufwala fya mushilo+ ilyo bali pa ntanshi ya baume abali ne fyanso,+ kabili baleti: “Lumbanyeni Yehova,+ pantu icikuuku cakwe ca muyayaya.”+ 22  Kabili ilyo batendeke ukwaula no kulumbanya, Yehova abikile aba kubelamina+ abana ba kwa Amoni, abana ba kwa Moabu na ba mu calo ca mpili ica Seiri abaleisa mu Yuda, kabili batendeke ukwipayana.+ 23  Kabili abana ba kwa Amoni na bana ba kwa Moabu baimiine abekashi ba mu calo ca mpili ica Seiri+ pa kuti babepaye no kubalofya; kabili ilyo bapwile ukwipaya abekashi ba mu Seiri, balyafwene cila muntu ukwipaya umunankwe.+ 24  Nomba abaYuda bena, baile ku lupungu lwa kwa kalinda ulwali mu matololo.+ Ilyo baloleshe kwi bumba, moneni, bonse nabafwa kabili ifitumbi filambalele pa nshi+ ukwabula no wa kupusuka. 25  E lyo Yehoshafati na bantu bakwe baishile ku kusenda ifintu fyabo,+ kabili basangilepo ifipe ifingi ne fya kufwala ne fipe ifisuma; kabili basendele ifingi nga nshi ica kuti bafililwe ukusenda na fimbi.+ Kabili balesenda ifi fipe inshiku shitatu, pantu fyali ifingi. 26  Kabili pa bushiku bwalenga shine balongene pamo mu mpanga yabatama iya Beraka, pantu kulya kwine e ko balumbanishishe Yehova.+ E mulandu wine bainikile ishina+ lya ilya ncende abati Impanga Yabatama iya Beraka, ukufika na lelo. 27  E lyo abaume ba mu Yuda bonse na ba mu Yerusalemu, ninshi Yehoshafati alebatungulula, babwelele ku Yerusalemu balesekelela, pantu Yehova abalengele ukusekelela pa balwani babo.+ 28  E ico baishile ku Yerusalemu ne filimba fya nsale+ na bansango+ na mapenga+ ku ng’anda ya kwa Yehova.+ 29  Kabili amabufumu yonse aya mu fyalo yatiinine+ Lesa ilyo baumfwile ukuti Yehova alwishishe abalwani ba bena Israele.+ 30  E ico mu bufumu bwa kwa Yehoshafati mwali tondolo, na Lesa wakwe alemulenga ukutuusha mu calo conse.+ 31  Kabili Yehoshafati+ aleteka Yuda. Ali ne myaka amakumi yatatu na isano (35) ilyo atendeke ukuteka kabili atekele mu Yerusalemu imyaka amakumi yabili na isano (25). Ne shina lya kwa nyina ni Asuba+ mwana Shilhi. 32  Kabili ale-enda mu nshila ya kwa Asa+ wishi, kabili tafuminemo, alecita ifisuma mu menso ya kwa Yehova.+ 33  Ififulo fya kupepelapo+ e fyo fye bashaonawile; kabili abantu tabapekenye imitima yabo ukulola kuli Lesa wa fikolwe fyabo.+ 34  Imilandu yashalako iya kwa Yehoshafati, iya kubalilapo ne ya kulekelesha, yalilembwa mu mashiwi ya kwa Yehu+ mwana Hanani,+ aya mwi Buuku+ lya Shamfumu sha mu Israele. 35  Kabili pa numa ya ifi Yehoshafati imfumu ya ku Yuda abombeele pamo na Ahasia+ imfumu ya ku Israele, uwalecita ifyabipa.+ 36  E ico atendeke ukubombela pamo nankwe mu kupanga amato ya kuya ku Tarshishi+ kabili bapangile amato mu Esione-gebere.+ 37  Lelo, Eliesere mwana Dodabahu uwa ku Maresha asesemene Yehoshafati ukutila: “Apo wabombela pamo na Ahasia,+ Yehova akabongolola imilimo yobe.”+ Awe amato yalyonaike,+ kabili tayakosele aya kuti yaye ku Tarshishi.+
