Indalo

1Ekuqalekeni uThixo wadala amazulu nehlabathi.

2Ke ehlabathini kwakusenyanyeni, kuselubala; kwakumnyama phezu kwamanzi enzonzobila. UMoya kaThixo wafukama phezu kwamanzi lawo. 3Wathi uThixo, Makubekho ukukhanya. 4Kwabakho ke ukukhanya. Wakubona ke uThixo ukukhanya ukuba kulungile, wahlula uThixo phakathi kokukhanya nobumnyama. 5Wathi uThixo ukukhanya yimini, wathi ubumnyama bubusuku. Kwahlwa, kwasa: yangumhla wokuqala.

6Wathi uThixo, Makubekho isibhakabhaka phakathi kwawo amanzi, sibe ngumahlulo wokwahlula amanzi kumanzi. 7Wasenza uThixo isibhakabhaka, wawahlula amanzi angaphantsi kwesibhakabhaka kuwo amanzi angaphezu kwesibhakabhaka. Kwaba njalo. 8Wathi uThixo isibhakabhaka ngamazulu. Kwahlwa, kwasa: yangumhla wesibini.

9Wathi uThixo, Amanzi angaphantsi kwamazulu makahlanganiselwe ndaweni-nye, kubonakale okomileyo. Kwaba njalo. 10Wathi uThixo okomileyo ngumhlaba, wathi intlanganisela yamanzi ziilwandle. Wabona uThixo ukuba kulungile.

11Wathi uThixo, Umhlaba mawuphume uhlaza, imifuno evelisa imbewu, imithi yeziqhamo, eyenza iziqhamo ngohlobo lwayo, embewu ikuyo, emhlabeni. 12Kwaba njalo. Umhlaba waphuma uhlaza, nemifuno evelisa imbewu ngohlobo lwayo, nemithi eyenza iziqhamo, embewu ikuyo, ngohlobo lwayo. Wabona uThixo ukuba kulungile. 13Kwahlwa kwasa: yangumhla wesithathu.

14Wathi uThixo, Makubekho izikhanyiso esibhakabhakeni samazulu, zibe ngumahlulo wokwahlula imini kubusuku; zibe zezemiqondiso, zibe zezamaxesha amisiweyo, zibe zezemihla neminyaka; 15mazibe zizikhanyiso esibhakabhakeni samazulu, zikhanyise ehlabathini. Kwaba njalo. 16Wenza uThixo izikhanyiso ezikhulu zazibini, esona sikhulu isikhanyiso ukuba silawule imini, esona sincinane isikhanyiso ukuba silawule ubusuku; wenza neenkwenkwezi. 17Wazibeka uThixo esibhakabhakeni samazulu, ukuba zikhanyise ehlabathini, 18zilawule imini nobusuku, zahlule ukukhanya kubumnyama. Wabona uThixo ukuba kulungile. 19Kwahlwa, kwasa: yangumhla wesiné.

20Wathi uThixo, Amanzi la makanyakazele inyakanyaka, imiphefumlo ephilileyo; zithi neentaka ziphaphazele ehlabathini, esibhakabhakeni sezulu. 21Wadala uThixo oominenga mikhulu, nayo yonke imiphefumlo ephilileyo enambuzelayo, awanyakazela ngayo amanzi ngohlobo lwayo, neentaka zonke ezinamaphiko ngohlobo lwazo. Wabona uThixo ukuba kulungile. 22Wazisikelela uThixo, esithi, Qhamani, nande, niwazalise amanzi aselwandle; zithi iintaka zande ehlabathini. 23Kwahlwa, kwasa: yangumhla wesihlanu.

24Wathi uThixo, Umhlaba mawuphume imiphefumlo ephilileyo ngohlobo lwayo: izinto ezizitho ziné, nezinambuzane, nezinto eziphilileyo zomhlaba ngohlobo lwazo. 25Kwaba njalo. Wenza uThixo izinto eziphilileyo zomhlaba ngohlobo lwazo, nezinto ezizitho ziné ngohlobo lwazo, nazo zonke izinambuzane zomhlaba ngohlobo lwazo. Wabona uThixo ukuba kulungile.

26Wathi uThixo, Masenze umntu ngokomfanekiselo wethu ngokufana nathi. Mababe nobukhosi ezintlanzini zolwandle, nasezintakeni zezulu, nasezintweni ezizitho ziné, nasemhlabeni wonke, nasezinambuzaneni zonke ezinambuzela emhlabeni. 27Wamdala ke uThixo umntu ngokomfanekiselo wakhe; wamdala ngokomfanekiselo kaThixo; wadala indoda nenkazana. 28Wabasikelela uThixo, wathi kubo uThixo, Qhamani, nande, niwuzalise umhlaba niweyise; nibe nobukhosi ezintlanzini zolwandle, nasezintakeni zezulu, nasezintweni zonke eziphilileyo ezinambuzelayo emhlabeni. 29Wathi uThixo, Yabonani, ndininikile yonke imifuno evelisa imbewu, esemhlabeni wonke, nayo yonke imithi eneziqhamo zemithi evelisa imbewu: yoba kukudla kuni. 30Nezinto zonke eziphilileyo zomhlaba, neentaka zonke zezulu, nezinambuzane zonke ezisemhlabeni, ezinomphefumlo ophilileyo, ndiziniké yonke imifuno eluhlaza ukuba ibe kukudla. 31Kwaba njalo. Wakubona uThixo konke akwenzileyo, nanko, kulungile kunene. Kwahlwa, kwasa: yangumhla wesithandathu.
