Vula amehlo akho ubone incithakalo eliyiyo idolobha lethu elibizwe ngegama lakho; ngoba asikunxusi ngenxa yezenzo zethu ezilungile kodwa ngenxa yesihe sakho esikhulu. + 19  O Jehova, yizwa. O Jehova, thethelela. + O Jehova, naka futhi uthathe isinyathelo! Ungalibali, ngenxa yegama lakho Nkulunkulu wami, ngoba idolobha lakho nabantu bakho kubizwa ngegama lakho.” + 20  Lapho ngisakhuluma, ngithandaza ngivuma isono sami nesono sabantu bakithi u-Israyeli futhi ngenza isicelo sami somusa phambi kukaJehova uNkulunkulu wami ngokuphathelene nentaba engcwele kaNkulunkulu wami, + 21  impela, lapho ngisathandaza, leyo ndoda uGabriyeli, + engangiyibone embonweni ekuqaleni, + yafika kimi lapho ngifile ukukhathala, ngesikhathi somnikelo wesipho wakusihlwa. 22  Yangenza ngaqonda yathi: “O Daniyeli, manje ngize ukuzokunika ukuhlakanipha nokuqonda. 23  Lapho uqala ukuncenga kuphume izwi, ngakho mina ngize ukuzokubikela ngalo, ngoba ungumuntu oyigugu kakhulu. *+ Ngakho cabangisisa ngale ndaba uqonde umbono. 24  “Kunamasonto* angu-70 anqunyelwe abantu bakini nedolobha lakini elingcwele, + ukuze kuqedwe iseqo, kuqedwe isono, + kwenziwe isihlawulelo ngenxa yesiphambeko, + kungeniswe ukulunga kwaphakade, + kuqinisekiswe umbono nesiprofetho, *+ nokuba kugcotshwe iNgcwelengcwele. 25  Kufanele wazi futhi uqonde ukuthi kusukela ekuphumeni kwezwi lokuba kuvuselelwe futhi kwakhiwe kabusha iJerusalema + kuze kufike uMesiya *+ uMholi, + kuyoba ngamasonto ayisikhombisa, namasonto angu-62. + Liyovuselelwa lakhiwe kabusha, libe nesigcawu nomsele wamanzi olizungezile, kodwa lokhu kuyokwenzeka ezikhathini ezinzima. 26  “Ngemva kwamasonto angu-62, uMesiya uyonqunywa *+ angasalelwa lutho. + “Abantu bomholi ozayo bayocekela phansi idolobha nendawo engcwele. + Isiphelo salo siyoba ngesikhukhula. Kuyoba nempi kuze kube sekupheleni; uNkulunkulu unqumile ukuthi kuyoba nencithakalo. + 27  “Uyogcina isivumelwano sisebenza ngenxa yabaningi isonto elilodwa; esikhathini esiyingxenye yesonto uyobangela ukuba kukhawuke umhlatshelo nomnikelo wesipho. + “Obangela incithakalo uyoza egibele iphiko lezinto ezinyanyekayo; + okwanqunywa kuyothululelwa naphezu koyincithakalo kuze kufike ukuqothula.”
