Xhosa Bible: 2 Peter

1:1 USimon Petros, umkhonzi nompostile kaYesu Kristu, ubhalela abo baluzuzileyo ukholo oluxabiso lunye nolwethu, ebulungiseni bukaThixo wethu, uMsindisi wethu uYesu Kristu:

1:2 uthi, Makwandiswe kuni ubabalo noxolo, ngokumazi uThixo, noYesu, iNkosi yethu.

1:3 Nibona nje, ukuba amandla akhe obuThixo asiphile zonke izinto ezisingise ebomini nasekuhloneleni uThixo, ngako ukumazi lowo wasibizayo ngozuko nesidima.

1:4 Esithe ngezo zinto, saphiwa amadinga amakhulukazi, anqabileyo, ukuze ngawo nibe ngamadlelane ngemvelo yobuThixo, nisinde ekonakaleni okukhoyo ehlabathini ngenkanuko.

1:5 Ewe, ngenxa yoko, nakuba niqokele ukukhuthala konke, yithini elukholweni lwenu nongezelele isidima; esidimeni ke, ukwazi;

1:6 ekwazini ke, ukuzeyisa; ekuzeyiseni ke, umonde; emondeni ke, ukuhlonela uThixo;

1:7 ekuhloneleni ke uThixo, ukuthanda abazalwana; ekuthandeni ke abazalwana, ukuthanda abantu bonke.

1:8 Kuba xa zikhoyo ezo zinto kuni, zisanda, zinenza ukuba ninganqeni, ningabi ngabaswele isiqhamo ekuyazini iNkosi yethu uYesu Kristu.

1:9 Kuba lowo zingekhoyo kuye ezo zinto, uyimfama; ubona luzizi, ekulibele ukuhlanjululwa kwezono zakhe zakudala.

1:10 Endithi ngoko, bazalwana, makube kukhona nikhuthalele ukulwenza luqine ubizo nonyulo lwenu; kuba, nakuzenza ezo zinto, anisayi kukha nikhubeke.

1:11 Kuba ngokunjalo nophiwa ngokobutyebi ukungena ebukumkanini obungunaphakade beNkosi yethu, uMsindisi uYesu Kristu.

1:12 Kungoko ndingakuyekiyo ukuhlala ndinikhumbuza ngezo zinto, noko nizaziyo, nizimasekileyo enyanisweni leyo ikhoyo kuni.

1:13 Ndiba ke kububulungisa, ukuba ngalo gama ndikulo mnquba, ndinivuse ngokunikhumbuza;

1:14 ndisazi nje ukuba kukufuphi ukubekwa nxamnye kwalo mnquba wam, njengokuba nayo iNkosi yethu uYesu Kristu yandazisayo.

1:15 Kananjalo ndiya kukhuthalela ke ukuba nibe nako, amaxa onke emva kokumka kwam, ukuzikhunjuzwa ezo zinto.

1:16 Kuba sithe, singalandelanga zintsomi zabuqhinga, sanazisa amandla nokufika kweNkosi yethu uYesu Kristu; sithe saba ngababoneli bobungangamsha bakhe.

1:17 Kuba wamkela kuThixo uYise imbeko nozuko, ekuzisweni kuye, bubuqaqawuli obubalaseleyo, izwi elinjengeli: Lo nguNyana wam oyintanda, endikholisiweyo mna nguye.

1:18 Nelo zwi ke saliva thina, lisiza liphuma ezulwini, sinaye entabeni leyo ingcwele.

1:19 Kanjalo sinalo nelona lizwi liqinisekileyo elilelobuprofeti, enityaphayo ukulinyamekela, linjengesibane esikhanyisa endaweni emnyama, kude kuse, liphume ikhwezi ezintliziyweni zenu;

1:20 nisazi oku kuqala, ukuba sonke isiprofeto sesibhalo asibikho ngokuzicombululela.

1:21 Kuba akukhanga kubekho siprofeto ngokuthanda komntu; bathi abantu abangcwele bakaThixo bathetha beqhutywa nguMoya oyiNgcwele.

2:1 Ke kaloku, kwakukho nabaprofeti ababuxoki phakathi kwabantu; njengokuba naphakathi kwenu kuya kubakho abafundisi ababuxoki, bona baya kungenisa bucala amahlelo entshabalalo, bemkhanyela uMnini-nto-zonke owabathengayo, bezizisela intshabalalo emsinya.

2:2 Baninzi abaya kulandela intshabalalo yabo; eya kunyeliswa ngenxa yabo indlela yenyaniso.

2:3 Bathi benokubawa, banibonelele ngamazwi alalanisayo; abakugwetywa kungaphumliyo kwakudala, nayo intshabalalo yabo ayozeli.

2:4 Kuba, xa uThixo angaziconganga izithunywa zezulu ezonayo, wesuka wathi, ezikhahlele enzonzobileni, wazinikela emixokelelwaneni yesithokothoko, zigcinelwe umgwebo;

2:5 naxa angaliconganga ihlabathi lakudala, wesuka walondoloza uNowa, umvakalisi wobulungisa, enabasixhenxe, akuba elihlisele unogumbe ihlabathi labangahloneli Thixo;

2:6 xa athe nemizi yaseSodom neGomora wayitshisa yaluthuthu, wayigweba ukuba ibhukuqeke, wayenza umzekelo wabaza kuba ngabangahloneli Thixo;

2:7 wamhlangula uLote olilungisa, owacatshukiswa kukuhamba eburheletyweni kwabangenammiselo;

2:8 kuba laye, ngokubona nangokuva, ilungisa elo lihleli phakathi kwabo imihla ngemihla, liwuthuthumbisa umphefumlo walo olungisayo, ngemisebenzi yabo echasene nomthetho;

2:9 iyakwazi iNkosi ukubahlangula ekuhendweni abahlonela uThixo; ke abangemalungisa ibagcinele imini yomgwebo, ukuba babethwe;

2:10 ngokukodwa ke abo balandela inyama ngokukhanuka ukuzidyobha, abadela ubukhosi. Ngabasileyo, abenza ngokuzithandela, abangoyikiyo ukunyelisa izikhakhamela.

2:11 Ukanti izithunywa zezulu, zingaphezulu nje ngokomelela namandla, azizigwebi ngamgwebo unyelisayo phambi kweNkosi.

2:12 Ke aba, njengezinto eziphilileyo, ezingenangqondo, ezizezemvelo, ezizalelwe ukubanjwa nokonakala, benyelisa izinto abangazaziyo, baya konakala kanye ekonakaleni kwabo, bazuzane nomvuzo wokungalungisi;

2:13 njengababa bubuyolo ukudla ubuncwane okwemini enye; bengamabala neziphako, bexhamla ubuncwane ngokulukuhla kwabo, bezingxala ukudla ezidlweni nani;

2:14 benamehlo azele lukrexezo, angenakuphunyuzwa esonweni, bebambisa imiphefumlo engenakuzimaseka, benentliziyo eqheliswe ukubawa; abantwana bengqalekiso.

2:15 Beyishiyile indlela ethe tye, balahleka, belandela indlela kaBhileham okaBhehore, owathanda umvuzo wokungalungisi;

2:16 wohlwaywa ke ngokugqitha kwakhe umthetho; lathi iesile, lingenakuthetha nje, lathetha ngezwi lomntu, lamalela umprofeti lowo, ukuba angabi nxamnye nengqondo.

2:17 Aba bayimithombo engenamanzi, amafu aqhutywa luqhwithela, besigcinelwe bona isithokothoko sobumnyama ngonaphakade.

2:18 Kuba, bevakalisa nje iindumbisa zamazwi angento yanto, babambisa ngeenkanuko zenyama, ngoburheletyo, abo babesindile, kanye kwabo bahambayo ekulahlekisweni.

2:19 Bebathembisa nje inkululeko, bona ngokwabo bangabakhonzi bokonakala; kuba lowo athi ubani eyiswe nguye, ukhonzisiwe nokukhonziswa kuye.

2:20 Kuba xa bathi, besindile nje kuzo izidyobho zehlabathi ngokuyazi iNkosi, uMsindisi uYesu Kristu, babuye ke bazibhijele ngazo, boyiswe zizo, zisuke iziphelo zabo zaba mandundu kuneziqalo zabo.

2:21 Kuba ngekubalungele kanye, ukuba bebengayazanga indlela yobulungisa, kunokuba bathi beyazile, babuye umva, baphume kuwo umthetho ongcwele abawuwiselwayo.

2:22 Bahlelwe ke ngokomlinganiselo oyinene, othi, Inja ibuyele emhlanzweni wayo, nehagukazi eyahlanjwayo iye ekuzityikatyikeni eludakeni.

3:1 Ngoku ndinibhalela, zintanda, le ncwadi iyeyesibini, endithi kuzo zombini ndiyivuselele ingqondo yenu engcwengekileyo ngokunikhumbuza;

3:2 ukuba niwakhumbule amazwi abethethiwe ngenxa engaphambili ngabaprofeti abangcwele, nawo umthetho wabapostile bethu beNkosi uMsindisi;

3:3 nikwazi nje oku kuqala, ukuba kuya kuza ngemihla yokugqibela abagxeki, behamba ngokwezabo iinkanuko,

3:4 besithi, Liphi na kaloku idinga lokufika kwakhe? Kuba kuseloko oobawo balalayo ukufa, izinto zonke zahlala zihleli zinjengokwasekuqalekeni kwendalo.

3:5 Kuba oku kufihlakele kubo ngokuthanda kwabo, ukuba izulu laye likho kwakudala, nomhlaba uvele emanzini, umi ngamanzi, ngalo ilizwi likaThixo;

3:6 elathi ngezo zinto ihlabathi langoko lantywiliselwa ngamanzi, latshabalala.

3:7 Ke lona izulu langoku, nawo umhlaba lo, kwangelo lizwi ezo zinto ziqwetyelwe, zigcinelwe, umlilo, kuse kwimini yomgwebo nentshabalalo yabantu abangahloneli Thixo.

3:8 Le nto ke inye mayingafihlakali kuni, zintanda, ukuba phambi kweNkosi imini enye injengeminyaka eliwaka, neminyaka eliwaka injengemini enye.

3:9 INkosi ayilibali dinga, njengoko abathile baba iyalibala; isuka izeke kade umsindo kuthi, ingangi kungatshabalala nabani; inga bonke bangasinga enguqukweni.

3:10 Iya kufika ke imini yeNkosi njengesela ebusuku, eliya kuthi ngayo izulu lidlule liqhuqhumba, zithi ke iziqalelo zitshe, zichithakale, nomhlaba nayo imisebenzi ekuwo itshiswe kuthi tu.

3:11 Ezo zinto zonke ngoku zichithakala nje, nimele ukuba ngabanjani na ngeehambo ezingcwele nokuhlonela uThixo;

3:12 nikulindela, nikukhawulezela, ukufika kwayo imini kaThixo, eliya kuthi ngenxa yayo izulu lifakwe isikhuni, lichithakale, zithi neziqalelo zitshe zinyibilike?

3:13 Thina ke ngokwedinga lakhe silinde elitsha izulu, nomtsha umhlaba, apho kumi ubulungisa.

3:14 Kungoko, zintanda, nilindele ezo zinto nje, khuthalelani ukuba nifunyanwe kuye niseluxolweni, ningenabala, ningenasiphako.

3:15 Ukuzeka kade umsindo kweNkosi yethu kubaleleni ekuthini lusindiso, njengoko wanibhalelayo nomzalwana wethu oyintanda, uPawulos, ngokobulumko awabunikwayo;

3:16 njengokuba, nasezincwadini zakhe zonke, ethetha kuzo ngezo ndawo; ekukhoyo kuzo zithile ziqiqeka nzima, abathi abangafundileyo, nabangazimasekileyo, bazigqwethele kokwabo ukutshabalala, njengokuba bezenjenjalo nezinye izibhalo.

3:17 Nina ngoko, zintanda, nizazi nje ngenxa engaphambili ezo zinto, zigcineni okwenu, ukuze ningathi, nikhukuliswe lulahlekiso lwabangenammiselo, niphalale kokukokwenu ukuqina.

3:18 Khulani ke elubabalweni na sekuyazini iNkosi yethu, uMsindisi uYesu Kristu. Kuye malubekho uzuko nangoku, kuse nakwimini engunaphakade. Amen.
