60  “Ima,+ we mwanakashi, balika,+ pantu ulubuuto lobe nalwisa+ kabili ubukata bwa kwa Yehova nabubalika pali iwe.+  Pantu, mona! imfifi+ ikafimba isonde, ne mfifi iyafiitisha ikafimba inko; lelo Yehova akabalikila pali iwe, kabili ubukata bwakwe bukamoneka pali iwe.+  Kabili inko shikesa ku lubuuto lobe,+ ne shamfumu+ shikesa ku lubuuto lwa kubalika kobe.+  “Inwina amenso yobe konse konse kabili mona! Bonse nabalongana pamo;+ nabesa kuli iwe.+ Abana bobe abaume baleisa ukufuma ukutali, na bana bobe abanakashi na bo bakesa nababapaapila pa mbali.+  Pali iyo nshita ukamona no kubeeka,+ kabili umutima obe ukatutuma no kukula, pantu ubucindami bwa bemba bukaileta kuli iwe; ifyuma fya nko fikesa kuli iwe.+  Ingamila ishingi shikesula mu calo cobe, abana ba ngamila sha ku Midiani ne sha ku Efa.+ Shonse isha ku Sheba+ shikesa. Shikasenda golde ne fyanunkila bwino. Kabili bakalumbanya Yehova pa cintubwingi.+  Imikuni yonse iya mu Kedari+ ikalonganikwa pamo kuli iwe. Basukusuku ba ku Nebayote+ bakakubombela.+ Bakesa ku ciipailo+ candi no kupokelelwa bwino, kabili nkayemfya ing’anda yandi iisuma.+  “Ni bani aba abaleisa balepupuka kwati likumbi,+ kabili kwati ni nkunda ishilepupukila ku minshi ya fitele fya shiko?  Pantu ifishi fikalasubila muli ine,+ na mato ayakalamba aya ku Tarshishi,+ filya cali pa kubala, pa kuti balete abana bobe ukufuma ukutali+ kwi shina+ lya kwa Yehova Lesa obe na ku Wa Mushilo uwa kwa Israele,+ na silfere yabo na golde yabo ikaba na bo,+ pantu akakuyemfya.+ 10  Kabili aba ku fyalo fimbi bakakuula ifibumba fyobe,+ kabili ishamfumu shabo shikakubombela;+ pantu mu bukali bwandi nkakukanda,+ lelo mu cikuuku candi nkakubelela uluse.+ 11  “Kabili impongolo shobe shikesulwa pe;+ tashakesalwe akasuba nelyo ubushiku, pa kuti bakuletele ifyuma ifya nko,+ kabili ishamfumu shabo shikalabatungulula.+ 12  Pantu uluko lonse no bufumu bonse ubushakakubombele bukaloba; kabili inko shikonaulwa.+ 13  “Ubucindami bwa ku Lebanone bukesa kuli iwe, umuti wa mukupri, umutidari no mutashuri,+ ku kuyemfya incende yandi iya mushilo;+ kabili nkacindamika icifulo ca makasa yandi.+ 14  “Kabili abana ba balekucusha bakesa kuli iwe, nabakontama;+ kabili bonse abashalekucindika bakafukama pa makasa yobe,+ kabili bakakwita umusumba wa kwa Yehova, Sione+ wa Wa Mushilo uwa kwa Israele. 15  “Ukucila ukuba uwalekeleshiwa kabili uwapatwa, ukwabula no wa kupita muli iwe,+ nkakulenga ukuba ica kuitakishishapo umuyayaya, ica kusekelelapo ku nkulo ne nkulo.+ 16  Kabili ukoonka umukaka wa nko,+ no koonka ibele lya shamfumu;+ kabili ukeshiba ukuti ine, ne Yehova,+ nine Mupusushi obe,+ kabili Uwa Maka+ uwa kwa Yakobo e Mulubushi obe.+ 17  Apali umukuba nkabikapo golde,+ na pali icela nkabikapo silfere, apali ifimuti nkabikapo umukuba, na pali amabwe nkabikapo icela; kabili umutende e o nkasonta ukuba bakangalila bobe+ no bulungami ukuba bakapitao bobe.+ 18  “Ububifi tabwakomfwike na kabili mu calo cobe, nangu ukonaula no kutobaula mu ncende yobe.+ Kabili ukenika ifibumba fyobe ati Ipusukilo+ ne mpongolo shobe ati Amalumbo. 19  Kuli iwe akasuba takakabe e lubuuto lobe akasuba, no mweshi tawakalebalika pa kuti ukupeele ulubuuto. Lelo Yehova akaba ulubuuto lobe ulwa pe,+ kabili Lesa obe akaba ukuyemba kobe.+ 20  Akasuba kobe takakawe na kabili, no mweshi obe tawakacefye ulubuuto; pantu Yehova e ukaba ulubuuto ulwa pe,+ ne nshiku sha kuloosha kobe shikapwa.+ 21  E lyo abantu bobe bena, bonse bakaba abalungami,+ bakekala mu calo umuyayaya,+ umusonga uo nalimba,+ umulimo wa minwe yandi,+ pa kuti ncindame.+ 22  Umunono akaba ikana limo (1,000), kabili uwacepa akaba uluko lwa maka.+ Ine, ne Yehova, nkacilenga ukucitika bwangu bwangu mu nshita ya ciko.”+
