Muri iyo minsi, muri Israheli haduka abantu b’ibyigomeke, bashuka abantu benshi bababwira bati «Nimucyo tugirane amasezerano n’amahanga adukikije, kuko kuva aho twitandukanyirije na yo, ari bwo twatewe n’ibyago bitagira ingano.» Ayo magambo arabanyura. Ni bwo benshi muri rubanda bihutiye gusanga umwami, na we abaha uburenganzira bwo gukurikiza imigenzereze y’abanyamahanga.

Nshengurwa n’uburakari imbere y’abakwihakana,

batandukiriye amategeko yawe.

Nkikijwe n’imitego y’abagiranabi,

ariko sinibagiwe amategeko yawe.

Unkize abantu banshikamiye,

kugira ngo nkurikize amabwiriza yawe.

Inkozi z’ibibi zintoteza ziransatiriye,

amategeko yawe ziyagendera kure.

Abagiranabi umukiro ubari kure,

kuko batumvira ugushaka kwawe.

Nshenguka umutima iyo mbonye abahakanyi,

kuko badakurikiza amasezerano yawe.
