24  Yehowashi wenga ndi vyaka 7 pa nyengu yo wangujaliya fumu+ ndipu wangulamuliya kwa vyaka 40 ku Yerusalemu. Anyina ŵenga a Zibiya a ku Beresheba.+  Mu mazuŵa ngosi nga wasembi Yehoyiyada, Yehowashi wangulutirizga kuchita cho ntchakwenere pa masu paku Yehova.+  Yehoyiyada wangumusankhiya anthukazi ŵaŵi kuti aje awolu ŵaki, ndipu iyu wangubala ŵana anthulumi ndi ŵana anthukazi.  Pavuli paki, Yehowashi wangukhumbisiska mumtima mwaki kuti wanozgi nyumba yaku Yehova.+  Mwaviyo, wanguwunganisa pamoza asembi ndi Alevi, ndipu wanguŵakambiya kuti: “Lutani mumatawuni nga Yuda ndipu mukalondi ndalama kwa Ayisirayeli wosi zakunozge nyumba yaku Chiuta winu+ chaka chechosi; ndipu muchiti venivi mwaliŵiliŵi.” Kweni Alevi anguchita mwaliŵi cha.+  Mwaviyo fumu yingudana Yehoyiyada yo wenga mulongozgi ndipu yingumukambiya kuti:+ “Ntchifukwa wuli mwaleka kuŵatuma Alevi kuti azi ndi msonkhu wakupaturika kutuliya ku Yuda ndi ku Yerusalemu wo Mozesi+ mteŵeti waku Yehova wangulamula kuti mpingu wa Ayisirayeli uzengi nawu, kuti uzigwirengi ntchitu pachihema cha Ukaboni?+  Pakuti ŵana anthulumi aku Ataliya+ munthukazi muheni yuwa, angusere munyumba yaku Chiuta wauneneska+ ndi kuto vinthu vosi vakupaturika va munyumba yaku Yehova, ndipu anguvigwiriskiya ntchitu kwaku Bala.”  Sonu fumu yati yalamula, angupanga bokosi+ ndipu anguliŵika pabwalu, pageti la nyumba yaku Yehova.+  Pavuli paki, angupharazga mucharu chosi cha Yuda ndi ku Yerusalemu kuti ŵanthu azi ndi msonkhu wakupaturika kwaku Yehova,+ wo Mozesi mteŵeti waku Chiuta wauneneska wangulamula Ayisirayeli muchipululu. 10  Alongozgi wosi kweniso ŵanthu wosi angukondwa+ ndipu angulutirizga kuza ndi ndalama ndi kuziponya mubokosi, mpaka bokosi lo linguzaza.* 11  Asani Alevi ato bokosi ndi kuluta nalu kwa fumu, ndipu awona kuti mwe ndalama zinandi, mlembi wa fumu kweniso mteŵeti wa wasembi mura azanga ndi kutuzgamu ndalama zo,+ ndipu pavuli paki achiliweziyanga pamalu ngaki. Ivi ndivu achitanga zuŵa lelosi ndipu angusaniya ndalama zinandi ukongwa. 12  Pavuli paki, fumu ndipuso Yehoyiyada aperekanga ndalama zo ku ŵanthu wo awoneriyanga ntchitu ya uteŵeti wa panyumba yaku Yehova. Yiwu alembanga ntchitu ŵanthu akucheketa mya kweniso ŵanthu alusu kuti anozgi nyumba yaku Yehova,+ ndipuso alembanga ntchitu ŵanthu wo agwiriskiyanga ntchitu visulu ndi mkuŵa kuti anozgi nyumba yaku Yehova. 13  Ŵanthu wo awoneriyanga ntchitu yeniyi, angukambiya ŵanthu kuti ayambi kugwira ntchitu, ndipu ntchitu yo yingwenda umampha yiwu achiyiwonere. Yiwu angunozga nyumba yaku Chiuta wauneneska kuti yije nge mo yakhumbikiyanga kujaliya, ndipu anguyilamisa. 14  Ŵati amaliza ŵaka, ndalama zo zingujaku anguza nazu kwa fumu ndi kwaku Yehoyiyada. Ndalama zenizi anguzigwiriskiya ntchitu pakupanga viyaŵi va munyumba yaku Yehova, viyaŵi va uteŵeti kweniso vakupereke sembi, makapu ndipuso viyaŵi vagolidi ndi vasiliva.+ Mu mazuŵa ngosi ngaku Yehoyiyada, yiwu aperekanga sembi zakupiriza+ panyumba yaku Yehova nyengu zosi. 15  Yehoyiyada wati wakota kweniso wati wakhorwa ndi umoyu waki wa vyaka vinandi, wangufwa. Iyu wangufwa we ndi vyaka 130. 16  Mwaviyo, yiwu angumuŵika mu Tawuni yaku Davidi limoza ndi mafumu,+ chifukwa wanguchita vinthu vamampha mu Isirayeli,+ kweniso wanguchitiya vamampha Chiuta wauneneska ndi nyumba Yaki. 17  Yehoyiyada wati wafwa, alongozgi a ku Yuda anguza ndi kujikamiya fumu ndipu fumu yinguŵavwiya. 18  Yiwu angujowo nyumba yaku Yehova Chiuta wa apapi ŵawu akali, ndi kwamba kuteŵete mapolu ngakupaturika* kweniso angoza. Mwaviyo, ukali waku Chiuta* unguyukiya Yuda ndi Yerusalemu chifukwa cha kunanga kwawu. 19  Iyu wangulutirizga kutuma achimi pakati pawu kuti aŵaweze kwaku Yehova ndipuso angulutirizga kuŵatcheŵeska,* kweni yiwu angukana kuvwiya.+ 20  Mzimu waku Chiuta unguza paku Zekariya mwana wa wasembi Yehoyiyada.+ Iyu wangusoka pakati pa ŵanthu ndipu wanguŵakambiya kuti: “Chiuta wauneneska wakamba kuti, ‘Ntchifukwa wuli muleka kuvwiya marangu ngaku Yehova? Vinthu vikuyendiyeningi umampha cha! Chifukwa chakuti mwajowo Yehova, nayu wakujowoningi.’”+ 21  Kweni yiwu angumunozge chiŵembu+ ndipu fumu yati yalamula, angumuponya mya mubalaza la nyumba yaku Yehova.+ 22  Fumu Yehowashi yinguluwa chanju chambula kumala cho Yehoyiyada wisi waku Zekariya wanguyilongo. Yehowashi wangubaya mwana waku Yehoyiyada, ndipu mwana mwenuyu wachifwa wangukamba kuti: “Yehova wawoni vo wachita ndipu wakumbi mulandu.”+ 23  Kukwamba kwa chaka, asilikali a ku Siriya anguza kuzichita nkhondu ndi Yehowashi, ndipu angusere mu Yuda ndi mu Yerusalemu.+ Pavuli paki angubaya alongozgi wosi+ a ŵanthu ndipu vinthu vosi vo anguphanga anguvitumiza kwa fumu ya ku Damasiko. 24  Chinanga kuti asilikali a ku Siriya wo anguza kuzichita nkhondu ŵenga amana, kweni Yehova wangupereka asilikali anandi+ mu manja mwawu chifukwa chakuti ŵanthu angujowo Yehova Chiuta wa apapi ŵawu akali. Mwaviyo, yiwu* angulanga Yehowashi. 25  Sonu ŵati amuleka (pakuti angumuleka wapwetekeka ukongwa*), ateŵeti ŵaki chayiwu angumuchitiya chiŵembu, chifukwa wangudira ndopa za ŵana anthulumi a* wasembi Yehoyiyada.+ Yiwu angumubaya we pabedi laki.+ Mwaviyo, iyu wangufwa ndipu angumuŵika mu Tawuni yaku Davidi,+ kweni angumuŵika mumasanu nga mafumu cha.+ 26  Ŵanthu wo angumuchitiya chiŵembu+ ndi yaŵa: Zabadi mwana waku Shimeyati munthukazi wachiamoni kweniso Yehozabadi mwana waku Shimuriti munthukazi wa ku Mowabu. 27  Nkhani yakukwaskana ndi ŵana ŵaki anthulumi kweniso mauthenga nganandi ngakususkana ndi iyu+ ndipuso nkhani yakukwaskana ndi kunozga nyumba yaku Chiuta wauneneska,+ vosi venivi vikulembeka mu Buku la Mafumu. Ndipu mwana waki Amaziya ndiyu wanguja fumu mumalu mwaku iyu.
