Awonani! Mazu ngakutuliya kwaku Yehova nganguza kwaku iyu kuti: “Uchitanji kunu Eliya?” 10  Eliya wangumuka kuti: “Ini ndakuteŵetiyani mwaphamphu ukongwa yimwi Yehova Chiuta wa mizinda;+ kweni Ayisirayeli alijowo phanganu linu,+ maguŵa nginu nga sembi angabwanganduliya pasi kweniso achimi ŵinu aŵabaya ndi lipanga,+ ini pe ndini ndajaku wamoyu. Sonu apenja kuti andibayi.”+ 11  Kweni Chiuta wangukamba kuti: “Tuwa, ukami paphiri pa masu paku Yehova.” Awonani!

Chimphepu chati chamala, panguchitika chidilirisi,+ kweni Yehova wenga muchidilirisi cho cha. 12  Chidilirisi chati chamala, panguza motu,+ kweni Yehova wenga mumotu wo cha. Motu wati wajumpha, pangwamba kuvwika mazu ngakuzika chapasipasi.+ 13  Eliya wati wavwa ŵaka mazu yanga, wangubisa chisku chaki muchakuvwala chaki,+ wangutuliya pabwalu ndipu wanguchima pakhomu la mphanji. Sonu panguvwika mazu ngakumufumba kuti: “Uchitanji kunu Eliya?” 14  Eliya wangumuka kuti: “Ini ndakuteŵetiyani mwaphamphu ukongwa yimwi Yehova Chiuta wa mizinda; kweni Ayisirayeli alijowo phanganu linu,+ maguŵa nginu nga sembi angabwanganduliya pasi kweniso achimi ŵinu aŵabaya ndi lipanga, ini pe ndini ndajaku wamoyu. Sonu apenja kuti andibayi.”+ 15  Yehova wangumukambiya kuti: “Welere, uluti kuchipululu cha ku Damasiko. Asani wachifika, ukasankhi* Hazayeli+ kuti waje fumu ya ku Siriya. 16  Ukasankhi* so Yehu+ mzuku waku Nimushi kuti waje fumu ya ku Isirayeli, ndipuso ukasankhi* Elisha* mwana waku Shafati wa ku Abelu-mehola kuti waje mchimi yo wazamusere mumalu mwaku yiwi.+ 17  Weyosi yo wathaŵengi lipanga laku Hazayeli,+ wabayikengi ndi Yehu,+ ndipu weyosi yo wathaŵengi lipanga laku Yehu, wabayikengi ndi Elisha.+ 18  Kweniso mu Isirayeli mweche ŵanthu 7,000+ wo makongonu ngawu ngechendajikamiyepu Bala+ ndipuso milomu yawu yechendamufyofyonthepu.”+ 19  Mwaviyo, Eliya wangutuwaku kwenuku ndipu wanguchisaniya Elisha mwana waku Shafati. Pa nyengu iyi, Elisha walimanga mwakugwiriskiya ntchitu pulawu yo angumangiriyaku ng’ombi ziŵi zinthulumi.

Pavuli paki, ndikulondoningi.” Eliya wangumuka kuti: “Luta, pakuti ini ndakukaniza cha!” 21  Sonu Elisha wanguwelere, wanguto ng’ombi ziŵi zinthulumi ndipu wanguzipereka sembi.
