20Moshe a re ho bona: “Haeba le ka etsa jwalokaha le bolela, la hlomella ntwa moo Morena a ntseng a bona, 21mme mohlabani e mong le e mong wa lona a tshela Jorodane, moo Morena a ntseng a mmona, ho fihlela a lelekile dira tsa hae kapele ho yena, 22naha eo e ineetse ho Morena, ebe kamorao ho moo le a kgutla, le tla hloka molato ho Morena, le ho Iseraele. Morena o tla le nea naha ena e be lefa la lona.

23“Empa ha le sa etse jwalo, e tla ba le sitetswe Morena, mme le ke ke la phema kotlo ya sebe sa lona. 24Hahelang bana ba lona metse, le hahe le masaka a dinku tsa lona, mme le etse seo le se tshepisitseng.”

25Yaba bara ba Gade le bara ba Rubene ba re ho Moshe: “Bahlanka ba hao ba tla etsa jwalokaha monga rona a re laela. 26Bana ba rona, le basadi ba rona, le mehlape ya rona, le makgomo wohle a rona, tsena di tla sala Gileade. 27Empa bahlanka ba hao ba tla tshelela mose, mohlabani e mong le e mong o tla hlomella ntwa moo Morena a ntseng a bona jwalokaha monga rona a boletse.”

28Malebana le taba ya bona jwale Moshe a laela moprista Eleasare, le Joshua, mora wa Nune, le dihlooho tsa malapa a merabe ya bana ba Iseraele, 29a re ho bona: “Haeba bara ba Gade le bara ba Rubene, ba ka tshela Jorodane le lona, ho ya lwana moo Morena a ntseng a ba bona, mme ka bahlabani bohle ba bona ba hlometseng, yaba le hapa naha, le tle le ba nee naha ya Gileade, e be lefa la bona. 30Empa haeba ba sa tshele le lona ba hlometse, ba tla abelwa lefa le lona naheng ya Kanana.”

31Yaba bara ba Gade le bara ba Rubene ba a araba, ba re: “Re tla etsa jwalokaha Morena a laetse bahlanka ba hae. 32Re tla tshela re hlometse, moo Morena a ntseng a bona, re ye naheng ya Kanana, mme lefa la rona le tla ba ka kwano ho Jorodane.”+
