25Wayesethi kubo: “O nina eningaqondiyo nenilibele enhliziyweni ukukholwa yikho konke abakushilo abaprofethi! 26#Isaya 53:1Jer. 33:14UKristu ubengamelwe yini ukuhlupheka ngalokho, aze angene enkazimulweni yakhe na?” 27#Gen. 3:15|NoBook| 22:18Num. 21:9Dut. 18:15Hez. 34:11Wayesethathela kuMose nakubaprofethi bonke, wabachasisela emibhalweni okuqondene naye.
28Base besondela emzaneni ababeya kuwo yena washaya sengathi udlulela phambili. 29Bamncengisisa bathi: “Hlala nathi, ngokuba sekuzakuhlwa, nemini isiyadlula.” Wangena wahlala nabo.

33Base besuka ngasona leso sikhathi, baphindela eJerusalema, bafumana abayishumi nanye nababe nabo behlangene ndawonye, 34bethi: “Impela iNkosi ivukile, ibonakele kuSimoni.” 35Base belanda nabo okwenzekileyo endleleni, nokuthi yaziwa kanjani yibo ekuhlephuleni isinkwa.
