Isono SeKosi UDavida

Kwathi uSawula angahlongakala, uDavida waba yikosi. Bekaneminyaka ema-30. Njengombana ayikosi, kwadlula iminyaka ethileko. Ngelinye ilanga ebusuku uDavida wabona umfazi omuhle tle, njengombana aphezulu ephahleni lesigodlo sakhe. UDavida wathola ukuthi ibizo lakhe nguBhathi-Tjheba, wathola nokuthi utjhade ijoni ibizo lalo elingu-Uriya. UDavida wabizela uBhathi-Tjheba ngesigodlweni sakhe. Balalana, uBhathi-Tjheba wabasidisi. UDavida walinga ukufihla akwenzileko. Watjela induna yebutho ukuthi ibeke u-Uriya ngaphambili nakuliwako begodu bona bahlehlele emva. Ngemva kobana u-Uriya abulewe, uDavida watjhada no-Bhathi-Tjheba.

Kodwana uJehova wabubona boke ubumbi obenzekileko. Bekazokwenzani? UJehova wathumela umphorofidi uNathani kuDavida. UNathani wafika wamenzela umfanekiso, wathi: ‘Indoda enjingileko beyinezimvu ezinengi, bese indoda ebeyidobha phasi yona beyinemvana yinye begodu beyiyithanda imvanayo leyo. Kuthe kunjalo, indoda enjingileko le yathatha imvana yesichakeso.’ UDavida wakwata wabila wabe wathi: ‘Indoda enjingileko le ifanelwe kukufa!’ UNathani wathi kuDavida: ‘Nguwe indoda enjingileko le!’ Ihliziyo kaDavida yababuhlungu khulu, wavuma kuNathani wathi: ‘Ngonile kuJehova.’ Isonwesi senza uDavida nomndenakhe baba nemiraro eminengi. UJehova wajezisa uDavida, kodwana wamlisa waphila ngombana bekathembekile begodu athobekile.

UDavida bekafuna ukwakhela uJehova ithempeli, kodwana uJehova wakhetha indodana kaDavida uSolomoni bona kube ngiyo emakhela ithempeli. UDavida wathoma wenza amalungiselelo wabuthelela ebekuzokutlhogwa  nguSolomoni begodu wathi: ‘Ithempeli lakaJehova kufuze libe lihle tle. USolomoni usesemcani, kodwana ngizomsiza ngimtholele koke azokutlhoga.’ UDavida wanikela ngemali enengi bona kwenziwe umsebenzi wokwakhiwa lo. Wafunyana iinsebenzi ezinamakghono. Wabuthelela igolide nesiliva, begodu bekanomsedari ovela eTirosi neTsidoni. Nasele azokufa, uDavida wanikela uSolomoni iinqophiso zokwakha ithempeli. Wathi kuye: ‘UJehova uthe ngikutlolele iinqophiswezi phasi. UJehova uzokusiza. Ungesabi. Yibanamandla, uthome ngomsebenzi.’
