Mukama asalira Akaziya Omusango

11:1 Lub 19:37; 2Sa 8:2; 2Bk 3:5Awo Akabu ng’amaze okufa, ab’omu nsi ya Mowaabu ne bajeemera Abayisirayiri. 21:2 a nny 16 b Mak 3:22 c 1Sa 6:2; Is 2:6; 14:29; Mat 10:25 d Bal 18:5; 2Bk 8:7-10Akaziya ng’ali mu Samaliya y’asimatuka n’ayita mu ddirisa ly’ekisenge kye ekya waggulu, n’agwa, n’alwala. Awo n’atuma ababaka eri Baaluzebubi1:2 Baaluzebubi kitegeeza “mukama w’ensowera.” Erinnya eryo likozesebwa okunyooma katonda w’Abakanani ayitibwa Beeruzebuli (omulangira w’abadayimooni) mu Matayo 10:25; 12:27. bakatonda b’e Ekuloni, okubeebuuzaako obanga obulwadde bwe buliwona.

31:3 a nny 15; Lub 16:7 b 1Bk 17:1 c 1Sa 28:8Malayika wa Mukama n’ajja eri Eriya Omutisubi n’amugamba nti, “Golokoka, ogende osisinkane ababaka ba kabaka w’e Samaliya, obabuuze nti, ‘Teri Katonda mu Isirayiri, kyemuvudde mugenda mwebuuza eri Baaluzebubi bakatonda b’e Ekuloni?’ 41:4 nny 6, 16; Zab 41:8Noolwekyo bw’ati bw’ayogera Mukama nti, toliwona bulwadde bwo, naye ogenda kufa.” Eriya bwe yamala okwogera ebyo n’agenda.

5Oluvannyuma lw’ebyo, ababaka kabaka be yatuma ne baddayo eri kabaka, n’ababuuza nti, “Kiki ekibakomezaawo amangu?”

6Ne bamuddamu nti, “Waliwo omusajja eyatusisinkanye mu kkubo n’atugamba nti, ‘Muddeyo eri kabaka mumugambe nti olw’okugenda eri Baaluzebubi bakatonda b’e Ekuloni okulagulwa, n’otogenda kwebuuza ku Katonda wa Isirayiri, togenda kuva ku kitanda ekyo era togenda kuwona bulwadde obwo wabula ogenda kufa.’ ”

7N’ababuuza nti, “Omusajja oyo gwe musisinkanye abadde afaanana atya?”

81:8 1Bk 18:7; Zek 13:4; Mat 3:4; Mak 1:6Ne bamuddamu nti, “Abadde ayambadde ekyambalo kya bwoya, nga yeesibye n’olukoba lwa bwoya.”

Kabaka n’ayogera nti, “Oyo yandiba Eriya Omutisubi.”

91:9 a 2Bk 6:14 b Kuv 18:25; Is 3:3Awo kabaka n’atuma omukulu eyali akulira ekibinja ky’abasajja amakumi ataano n’abasajja be eri Eriya. Bwe yatuuka awaali Eriya, yamusanga atudde ku ntikko eya kasozi, n’amugamba nti, “Musajja wa Katonda, kabaka akwetaaga.”

101:10 1Bk 18:38; Luk 9:54; Kub 11:5; 13:13Eriya n’addamu omukulu w’ekibinja nti, “Obanga ndi musajja wa Katonda, omuliro guve mu ggulu gukwokye ggwe n’ekibinja kyo!” Awo omuliro ne guva mu ggulu ne gumwokya ye n’ekibinja kye.

11Kabaka bwe yawulira ebyo n’atuma omukulu omulala n’ekibinja kye eky’amakumi ataano eri Eriya. Omukulu oyo eyatumibwa n’agamba Eriya nti, “Ggwe omusajja wa Katonda, kabaka akuyita mangu.”p 12Eriya n’amuddamu nti, “Obanga ndi musajja wa Katonda, kale omuliro guve mu ggulu gukwokye ggwe n’ekibinja kyo.” Awo omuliro ne guva mu ggulu ne gumwokya ye n’ekibinja kye.

131:13 1Sa 26:21; Zab 72:14Naye kabaka teyakoma ku abo, n’amutumira omukulu owookusatu ow’ekibinja ekirala eky’amakumi ataano, n’agenda eri Eriya. Bwe yatuuka awaali Eriya n’afukamira mu maaso ge, n’amwegayirira ng’agamba nti, “Omusajja wa Katonda nkwegayiridde, onsasire, nneme okufa. 14Laba, omuliro gwavudde mu ggulu ne gwokya abakulu bombi n’ebibinja byabwe, naye kaakano osaasire obulamu bwange.”

151:15 a nny 3 b Is 51:12; 57:11; Yer 1:17; Ez 2:6Awo malayika wa Mukama n’agamba Eriya nti, “Serengeta naye, so tomutya.” Awo Eriya n’asituka n’aserengeta n’omubaka wa kabaka eri kabaka.

161:16 a nny 2 b nny 4Eriya n’agamba kabaka nti, “Bw’ati bw’ayogera Mukama nti, ‘Nsonga ki eyakutwala eri Baaluzebubi bakatonda b’e Ekuloni okulagulwa, mu kifo ky’okulaga eri Katonda wa Isirayiri ne gw’oba weebuuzako?’ Ky’oliva olema okuva ku kitanda ekyo kye weebaseeko, era ojja kufa.” 171:17 a 2Bk 8:15; Yer 20:6; 28:17 b 2Bk 3:1; 8:16N’afa, ng’ekigambo kya Mukama kye yatuma Eriya bwe kyali.

Olwokubanga Akaziya teyalina mwana wabulenzi, Yekolaamu n’amusikira okuba kabaka, mu mwaka ogwokubiri ogwa Yekolaamu mutabani wa Yekosafaati eyali kabaka wa Yuda. 18Ebyafaayo ebirala ebyabaawo mu mirembe gya Akaziya ne bye yakola, tebyawandiikibwa mu kitabo eky’ebyomumirembe gya bassekabaka ba Isirayiri?
