Bufumu bwa bena Asilya bwatendekele ne kulama ba mu bufumu bwa mikoka jikumi bwa bena Isalela. Senakelibu mfumu wa bena Asilya wakebelenga ne kwangata bufumu bwa mikoka ibiji bwa bena Yuda. Watendekele kwangata mizhi ya bena Yuda. Bino Yelusalema ye muzhi ye akebeshenga bingi. Senakelibu kechi wayukile kuba’mba Yehoba ukazhikijila Yelusalema ne.

Hezekiya mfumu wa bena Yuda wapele Senakelibu mali avula bingi kuba’mba abule kulukuka Yelusalema. Senakelibu watumine bashilikale banji kuya na kulukuka Yelusalema nangwa kya kuba watambwile ano mali. Bantu bajinga mu uno muzhi baumvwine bingi moyo mambo bena Asilya bafikile kwipi na uno muzhi. Kepo Hezekiya ebambijile’mba: ‘Kuba moyo ne. Bena Asilya bakosa, pano bino Yehoba usakwitupa bulume bwa kwibashinda.’

Senakelibu watumine muluwe wanji aye Labashake kuya ku Yelusalema na kwibendeleka. Labashake waimene pangye ya muzhi na kubijika’mba: ‘Yehoba kechi wakonsha kwimupulusha ne. Kange Hezekiya emujimbaike ne. Kafwako lesa wakonsha kwimupokolola mu kwi atweba ne.’

Hezekiya walombele kwi Yehoba kuba’mba amubule bya kuba. Yehoba wamukumbwile’mba: ‘Kuba moyo na byambo byaamba Labashake ne. Senakelibu kechi ukalukuka muzhi wa Yelusalema ne.’ Kyalondejilepo, Hezekiya watambwijile makalata atumine Senakelibu. Mu ano makalata wanembelemo amba: ‘Leka byo ubena kulanguluka. Yehoba kechi ukemupokolola ne.’ Bino Hezekiya walombele’mba: ‘Anweba Yehoba, tupokololai, pa kuba’mba bantu bonse bayuke kuba’mba anweba yenu Lesa wa kine.’ Yehoba wamwambijile’mba: ‘Mfumu wa bena Asilya kechi ukatwelamo mu Yelusalema ne. Nkazhikijila muzhi wami.’

Bino Senakelibu aye wapwishishe mu muchima wanji amba muzhi wa Yelusalema ukekala muzhi wanji. Juba jimo bufuku, Yehoba watumine malaika wajinga bashilikale babena Asilya pangye ya muzhi wa Yelusalema. Uno malaika waipaile  bashilikale ba bena Asilya 185,000. Bashilikale bonse ba Mfumu Senakelibu bafwile. Wabwelele kwabo mambo kafwako kyo afwainwe kuba ne, bamushinjile. Yehoba wazhikijile Hezekiya ne muzhi wa Yelusalema byonka byo amulayile. Inge wajinga mu muzhi wa Yelusalema, nanchi ne obewa inge waketekejile mwi Yehoba nyi?
