Ndipu Ayisirayeli anguŵaleka ŵanthu ŵenaŵa kweniso anguŵabaya cha.+ 11  Sonu yiwu atitiweze mwakuza kunu kuti atidikisi pa chihara chinu cho yimwi mukutipaska kuti chije chidu.+ 12  Yimwi Chiuta widu, kumbi muŵayeruzgengi cha?+ Pakuti isi tilivi nthazi kuti tilimbani ndi chigulu chikulu ichi cho chaza kuzitiyukiya. Ndipuso tiziŵa cha vakuti tichiti,+ kweni masu ngidu nge kwaku yimwi.”+ 13  Pa nyengu iyi, ŵanthu wosi a ku Yuda anguma pa masu paku Yehova, limoza ndi ŵana ŵawu anamana, awolu ŵawu kweniso ŵana ŵawu.* 14  Sonu mzimu waku Yehova unguza paku Yahaziyeli yo wenga pakati pa mpingu wenuwu. Yahaziyeli wenga mwana waku Zekariya mwana waku Benaya mwana waku Yeyiyeli mwana waku Mataniya, Mlevi wakutuliya pa ŵana aku Asafu. 15  Iyu wangukamba kuti: “Vwani yimwi mwaŵanthu mosi a ku Yuda kweniso ŵanthu a ku Yerusalemu ndi Fumu Yehosafati! Yehova wakamba kuti, ‘Mungawopanga cha pamwenga kuchita mantha chifukwa cha chigulu chikulu ichi, pakuti nkhondu njinu cha kweni njaku Chiuta.+ 16  Mawa muziluti kuchichita nawu nkhondu. Pakuza, yiwu ajumphengi kumtunthu wa Zizi, ndipu mwakuŵasaniya kukumaliya kwa dambu mwechendafiki kuchipululu cha Yeruweli. 17  Yimwi muchitengeku cha nkhondu iyi. Muje ŵaka mumalu nginu, ndi kuma jo+ ndipu muwoni utaski waku Yehova wo waperekengi chifukwa chaku yimwi.*+ Yimwi ŵanthu a ku Yuda ndipuso a ku Yerusalemu, mungawopanga cha pamwenga kuchita mantha.+ Mawa muziluti kuchichita nawu nkhondu ndipu Yehova wazamukuŵa namwi.’”+ 18  Nyengu yeniyo, Yehosafati wangujikama mpaka chisku chaki pasi, ndipu ŵanthu wosi a ku Yuda ndi a ku Yerusalemu anguwa pasi pa masu paku Yehova kuti asopi Yehova. 19  Sonu Alevi wo ŵenga a mu banja laku Kohati+ ndipuso laku Kora angusoka kuti athamiki Yehova Chiuta waku Isirayeli ndi mazu ngakudaniriza.+ 20  Mawa laki, yiwu anguyuka mlenjilenji ndipu anguluta kuchipululu cha Tekowa.+ Achiluta, Yehosafati wanguma ndi kukamba kuti: “Vwani yimwi ŵanthu a ku Yuda ndi ku Yerusalemu! Gomezgani Yehova Chiuta winu kuti muje ndi chiganga.* Gomezgani achimi ŵaki+ ndipu vinthu vikuyendiyeningi umampha.” 21  Yehosafati wati wakambiskana ndi ŵanthu, wangusankha anthulumi kuti ambiyengi+ Yehova kweniso ambengi sumu zakuthamika avwala vakuvwala vakupaturika ndipuso kuti ayendengi panthazi pa anthulumi wo angupinga vidya vankhondu. Yiwu akambanga kuti: “Wongani Yehova, chifukwa chanju chaki chambula kumala ntchamuyaya.”+ 22  Yiwu ŵati ayamba kumba sumu zakuthamika mwakukondwa, Yehova wanguŵika anthulumi kuti abisamiyi ŵanthu a ku Amoni, a ku Mowabu ndipuso a kuchigaŵa chamapiri cha Seiri wo anguza kuziyukiya Yuda, ndipu yiwu angwamba kubayana ŵijaŵija.+ 23  Aamoni ndi Amowabu anguyukiya ŵanthu a kuchigaŵa cha mapiri cha Seiri+ kuti aŵabayi ndi kuŵapeye limu. Yiwu ŵati amaliza kubaya ŵanthu a ku Seiri, angwamba kubayana ŵijaŵija.+ 24  Sonu ŵanthu a ku Yuda ŵati afika pakanyumba kakuthopoka ka mulonda ko kenga muchipululu,+ ndi kulereska ko kwenga chigulu cha ŵanthu, anguwona mathupi ngawu ngo ngenga pasi,+ pengavi munthu wamoyu. 25  Sonu Yehosafati ndi ŵanthu ŵaki anguza kuziyola vinthu va ŵanthu ŵenaŵa. Yiwu angusaniya vinthu vinandi, vakuvwala ndipuso vinthu vakuzirwa, vo anguzuwa ŵanthu yaŵa kuti vije vawu, ndipu vengapu vinandi ukongwa mpaka angutondeka kunyamuwa.+ Vinguŵatole mazuŵa ngatatu kuti amalizi kututuwa vinthu venivi pakuti vengapu vinandi ukongwa. 26  Pa zuŵa lachinayi anguwungana pamoza mu Dambu la* Beraka ndipu kwenuku anguthamika* Yehova. Ndichu chifukwa chaki malu ngenanga angungadana zina lakuti Dambu la Beraka*+ mpaka msanawale. 27  Pavuli paki, anthulumi wosi a ku Yuda ndipuso a ku Yerusalemu wo alongozgekanga ndi Yehosafati, anguwere ku Yerusalemu achikondwa, pakuti Yehova wanguchitiska kuti akondwi, chifukwa wanguthereska arwani ŵawu.+ 28  Sonu yiwu anguza ku Yerusalemu achimba ndi vipangizu vakumbiya va vingwi, mabangu*+ kweniso mbata,*+ ndipu anguluta kunyumba yaku Yehova.+ 29  Ŵanthu a maufumu ngosi nga muvyaru ŵati ŵavwa kuti Yehova wathereska arwani aku Isirayeli, mantha ngakutuliya kwaku Chiuta nganguŵawiya.+ 30  Mwaviyo, ufumu waku Yehosafati wengavi chakutimbanyizga chechosi, ndipu Chiuta wangulutirizga kuchitiska kuti iyu wapumuwi muvigaŵa vosi.+ 31  Yehosafati wangulutirizga kulamuliya ku Yuda. Iyu wenga ndi vyaka 35 pa nyengu yo wangujaliya fumu, ndipu wangulamuliya kwa vyaka 25 ku Yerusalemu. Zina la anyina lenga Azuba, mwana munthukazi waku Shili.+ 32  Yehosafati wangulutirizga kwenda mu nthowa ya awisi a Asa.+ Iyu wangupetuka cha pa nthowa ya awisi ndipuso wanguchita vinthu vo Yehova wativiwona kuti vakwenere.+ 33  Chinanga kuti venga viyo, malu ngapachanya ngangutuzgikamu cha,+ ndipu ŵanthu ŵenga ŵechendanozgi mitima yawu kuti alondo Chiuta wa apapi ŵawu akali.+ 34  Mbiri yosi yaku Yehosafati kutuwa pakwamba mpaka pakumaliya, yikulembeka mu mazu ngaku Yehu+ mwana waku Haneni,+ ngo ngasanirika mu Buku la Mafumu nga ku Isirayeli. 35  Pavuli paki, Yehosafati fumu ya ku Yuda wanguchita phanganu ndi Ahaziya fumu ya ku Isirayeli, yo wanguchita vinthu viheni.+ 36  Mwaviyo, iyu wangwamba kugwira nayu ntchitu yakupanga sitima kuti zilutengi ku Tashishi.+ Yiwu angupanga sitima ku Eziyoni-geberi.+ 37  Kweni Eliyezere mwana waku Dodavahu wa ku Maresha wangukamba uchimi wakususkana ndi Yehosafati wakuti: “Chifukwa chakuti wachita phanganu ndi Ahaziya, Yehova wanangengi ntchitu zaku.”+ Mwaviyo sitima zingusweka+ ndipu zingutondeka kuluta ku Tashishi.
