1:1 UPawulos noSilvano noTimoti babhalela ibandla labaseTesalonika, elikuThixo uBawo wethu, neNkosi yethu uYesu Kristu;

1:2 bathi, Makube lubabalo kuni, noxolo oluvela kuThixo uBawo, neNkosi yethu uYesu Kristu.

1:3 Simelwe kukuhlala sibulela kuThixo ngenxa yenu, bazalwana, njengokuba kufanelekile, ngokuba lukhula ngokugqithiseleyo ukholo lwenu, lusanda uthandano lwenu nonke ngabanye;

1:4 ngokokude thina ngokwethu siqhayise ngani emabandleni kaThixo, ngenxa yonyamezelo lwenu, nokholo lwenu, ezintshutshisweni zenu zonke, nasezimbandezelweni enizinyamezelayo;

1:5 umbonakaliso ke lowo womgwebo onobulungisa kaThixo, ukuze nibalelwe ekuthini nibufanele ubukumkani bukaThixo, enithi ngenxa yabo nive nokuva ubunzima;

1:6 ukuba kanti yinto ebubulungisa kuThixo ukubabuyekeza ngembandezelo abanibandezelayo;

1:7 athi, nina babandezelwayo, anibuyekeze ngokuniphumza kunye nathi, ekutyhilekeni kweNkosi uYesu, ivela emazulwini inezithunywa zamandla ayo;

1:8 inomlilo odangazelayo, ibaphindezela abangamaziyo uThixo, nabangazilulameliyo iindaba ezilungileyo zeNkosi yethu uYesu Kristu;

1:9 bona abo baya kuva ukubethwa, intshabalalo engunaphakade ke leyo, bemke ebusweni beNkosi, nasebuqaqawulini bokomelela kwayo;

1:10 xa ithe yeza kuzukiswa kubangcwele bayo, imangaliseke kubo bonke abakholwayo (ngokuba nakholwa bubungqina bethu kuni), ngaloo mini.

1:11 Ngoko ke sihlala sithandaza nokuthandaza ngenxa yenu, ukuba uThixo wethu anibalele ekuthini nilufanele ubizo lwenu, azalise ngokunamandla konke ukukholiswa kukulunga, nomsebenzi wokholo;

1:12 ukuze lizukiswe igama leNkosi yethu uYesu Kristu kuni, nani nizukiswe kuye, ngokobabalo lukaThixo wethu, neNkosi yethu uYesu Kristu.

2:1 Ke kaloku siyanicela, bazalwana, ngenxa yokufika kweNkosi yethu uYesu Kristu, nokuhlanganiselwa kwethu kuyo,

2:2 ukuba ningazanyazanyiswa kwakamsinya, nahlukane nengqiqo; ukuba ningabi navuso ngamoya, ngalizwi, ngancwadi ingathi, ivela kuthi, ngokungathi iselingene imini leyo kaKristu.

2:3 Makungabikho bani unilukuhlayo nangalunye uhlobo; ngokuba ayinakufika yona, lungakhanga lufike ulahlo kuqala, atyhileke umntu wesono, unyana wotshabalalo;

2:4 lowo uchasayo, uziphakamisayo ngaphezu kwento yonke ekuthiwa nguThixo, nehlonelwayo, ngokokude azihlalise etempileni kaThixo, ezenza uThixo, ezibonisa ukuba unguThixo.

2:5 Anikhumbuli na, ukuba oko bendisekuni ndanixelela ezi zinto?

2:6 Nangoku niyakwazi okubambezelayo, ukuze atyhileke ngelakhe ixesha.

2:7 Kuba imfihlelo yokuchasana nomthetho iselisebenza; kodwa kulindwe ukuba ade lowo ubambezelayo ngoku asuswe kanye.

2:8 Andule ukutyhileka ongenamthetho; lowo iya kumtshisa iNkosi ngomoya womlomo wayo, imbangise ngokubonakala kokufika kwayo:

2:9 kwalowo, ukufika kungokokusebenza kukaSathana, ngayo imisebenzi yonke yamandla, nemiqondiso, nezimanga zobuxoki,

2:10 nangako ukulukuhla konke kokungalungisi kwabo batshabalalayo; ngenxa enokuba bengakwamkelanga ukuyithanda inyaniso, ukuze basindiswe.

2:11 Nangenxa yoko, uThixo uya kubathumela ulahlekiso olusebenza ngamandla, ukuze bakholwe bubuxoki;

2:12 ukuze bagwetywe bonke abangakholwanga yiyo inyaniso, basuka bakholiswa kuko ukungalungisi.

2:13 Ke thina simelwe kukuhlala sibulela kuye uThixo ngenxa yenu, bazalwana bathandiweyo yiNkosi, ukuba uThixo kwasekuqalekeni waninyulela ukusindiswa, ngokungcwalisa koMoya nokukholwa yinyaniso;

2:14 awanibizela kuko oko ngazo iindaba ezilungileyo zethu, ukuba nizuze uzuko lweNkosi yethu uYesu Kristu.

2:15 Ngoko ke, bazalwana, yimani, nizibambe izithethe enazifundiswayo, nokuba kungelizwi, nokuba kungencwadi yethu.

2:16 Ke kaloku, iNkosi yethu uYesu Kristu ngokwayo, noThixo uBawo wethu owasithandayo, wasinika intuthuzelo engunaphakade, nethemba elilungileyo ngobabalo,

2:17 wanga angazithuthuzela iintliziyo zenu, anizimase kuwo onke amazwi nemisebenzi elungileyo.

3:1 Elokugqiba, sithandazeleni, bazalwana, ukuba ilizwi leNkosi likhawuleze, lizukiswe, njengoko lenjenjalo nakuni;

3:2 nokuba sihlangulwe ebantwini abangendawo, abakhohlakeleyo; kuba ukholo alubantwini bonke.

3:3 Ithembekile ke yona iNkosi, eya kunizimasa, inigcine kuyo inkohlakalo.

3:4 Sikholose ngani ke ngokwaseNkosini, ukuba izinto esinithethela zona niyazenza, nabe nisaya kuzenza.

3:5 Yanga ke iNkosi ingathi iintliziyo zenu izikhokelele eluthandweni lukaThixo, naselunyamezelweni lukaKristu.

3:6 Ke kaloku siyanithethela, bazalwana, egameni leNkosi yethu uYesu Kristu, ukuba nikhwebuke kubo bonke abazalwana abahamba ngokunxaxha, bengahambi ngokwesithethe abasamkelayo kuthi.

3:7 Kuba niyazi ngokwenu, ukuba nimelwe kukuthini na ukusilinganisa; ngokuba asinxaxhanga phakathi kwenu.

3:8 Asidlanga sonka samntu ngesisa; sidle ngokubulaleka nangemigu, sisebenza ubusuku nemini, ukuze singabi bunzima nakubani kuni;

3:9 kungengakuba sasingenagunya; senzela ukuze sizinikele sibe ngumfuziselo kuni, nize nina nixelise thina.

3:10 Kuba naxenikweni besikuni, sanithethela ngelithi, Ukuba umntu akathandi kusebenza, makangadli nokudla.

3:11 Kuba siyeva ukuba inxenye phakathi kwenu ihamba ngokunxaxha, ingasebenzi nento, izifaka kwizinto zabanye.

3:12 Abanjalo ke siyabathethela, sibavuselela ngayo iNkosi yethu uYesu Kristu, ukuba bathi, besebenza ngokuzola, badle esisesabo isonka.

3:13 Ke nina, bazalwana, musani ukutha amandla ekwenzeni okulungileyo.

3:14 Ukuba ke kukho bani ungalilulameliyo ilizwi lethu ngencwadi le, mqondeni lowo, ningazidibanisi naye, ukuze adane.

3:15 Noko ke ze ningambaleli ekuthini ulutshaba; manimluleke njengomzalwana.

3:16 Yanga ke iNkosi yoxolo ngokwayo inganinika uxolo ngamaxa onke, ngeendlela zonke. INkosi mayibe nani nonke.

3:17 Umbuliso ngesam isandla, mna Pawulos. Nguwo lowo umqondiso kuzo zonke iincwadi; ndenjenjalo ukubhala.

3:18 Ubabalo lweNkosi yethu uYesu Kristu malube nani nonke. Amen.
