Xhosa Bible: 2 Timothy

1:1 UPawulos, umpostile kaYesu Kristu ngokuthanda kukaThixo, ngokwedinga lobomi obukuKristu Yesu,

1:2 ubhalela uTimoti, umntwana wakhe oyintanda; uthi, Makube lubabalo, nenceba, noxolo oluvela kuThixo uYise, noKristu Yesu iNkosi yethu.

1:3 Ndinokubulela kuye uThixo, endamkhonzayo kwakoomawokhulu ndinesazela esihlambulukileyo, ndikukhumbula njengokungapheliyo, ekukhungeni kwam ubusuku nemini;

1:4 ndilangazelela ukunga ndingakubona, ndizikhumbula nje iinyembezi zakho, ukuze ndizaliswe luvuyo;

1:5 ndikhunjuzwa nje ukholo olukuwe olungenakuhanahanisa, lona lwahlalayo kuqala kunyokokhulu uLoyisi, nakunyoko uYunike, endinyanisileyo ke ukuthi luhleli nakuwe.

1:6 Endithi ngenxa yelo thuba ndikukhumbuze, ukuba usikhwezele isipho sokubabalwa kwakho nguThixo, esikhoyo kuwe ngokubekwa kwezandla zam phezu kwakho.

1:7 Kuba uThixo akasinikanga moya wabugwala; wasinika owamandla, nowothando, nowesidima.

1:8 Ngoko ke musa ukuba nazintloni ngabo ubungqina beNkosi yethu, nangam, mna mbanjwa wayo; suka uve ububi kunye nam ngenxa yeendaba ezilungileyo, ngokwamandla kaThixo;

1:9 owasisindisayo, wasibiza ngobizo olungcwele, engenzi ngokwemisebenzi yethu, esenza ngokweyakhe ingqibo, nobabalo, esababalwa ngalo ngoKristu Yesu phambi kwamaxesha aphakade;

1:10 lwabonakaliswa ke ngoku ngako ukubonakala koMsindisi wethu uYesu Kristu, owakubhangisayo okunene ukufa, kodwa wabukhanyisa ubomi nokungonakali, ngazo iindaba ezilungileyo ezi;

1:11 endamiselwa zona mna, ndaba ngumvakalisi nompostile nomfundisi weentlanga;

1:12 endithi kananjalo ngenxa yeli thuba ndive obu bunzima. Noko ke andinazintloni; kuba ndiyamazi endikholiweyo nguye; kanjalo ndithi, ndeyisekile ukuba unako ukuyigcina into endimphathisileyo, ese kuloo mini.

1:13 Umzekelo wamazwi aphilileyo owawevayo kum, wubambe elukholweni naseluthandweni olukuKristu Yesu.

1:14 Loo nto intle uyiphathisiweyo, yigcine ngoMoya oyiNgcwele ohleliyo ngaphakathi kwethu.

1:15 Oku uyakwazi, ukuba bandinikele umva bonke abaseAsiya; abanoFigelo noHermogene.

1:16 Yanga iNkosi ingayenzela inceba indlu kaOnesiforo; ngokuba kwaba futhi endiphumza, akaba nazintloni nguwo umxokelelwane wam.

1:17 Wathi akuba eseRoma, wandifuna ngokukhuthala okukhulu, wandifumana.

1:18 Yanga iNkosi ingamfumanisa inceba eNkosini ngaloo mini. Nguwena waziyo kakuhle oko zingako izinto awalungiselela ngazo e-Efese.

2:1 Wena ngoko, mntwana wam, yomelela elubabalweni olukuKristu Yesu;

2:2 uthi nezinto owazivayo kum ngamangqina amaninzi, ezo uzibeke phambi kwabantu abathembekileyo, bona baya kukulingana ukufundisa nabanye.

2:3 Wena ngoko bunyamezele ububi, njengomphumi-mkhosi olungileyo kaKristu Yesu.

2:4 Akukho namnye uthi, ephuma umkhosi, azibhijele ngemicimbi yobu bomi; ukuze amkholise lowo umnyulele ukuphuma umkhosi.

2:5 Nakuba ke ubani esithi azame emdlalweni, akathweswa sithsaba, ukuba akathanga azame ngokomthetho.

2:6 Umlimi lowo ubulalekayo, umelwe kukwamkela kuqala kwiziqhamo.

2:7 Ziqiqe izinto endizithethayo; iNkosi yokupha ke ingqondo ezintweni zonke.

2:8 Mkhumbule uYesu Kristu, engovukileyo kwabafileyo, engowembewu kaDavide, ngokweendaba zam ezilungileyo;

2:9 endiva ububi ngenxa yazo, kude kuse ezintanjeni, njengomenzi wobubi; ke lona ilizwi likaThixo alibotshiwe.

2:10 Ngenxa yoko izinto zonke ndiyazinyamezela ngenxa yabo abanyulwa, ukuze nabo bamkele usindiso olukuKristu Yesu, ndawonye nozuko olungunaphakade.

2:11 Lithembekile ilizwi eli: Kuba xa safa naye, sodla ubomi kwandawonye naye;

2:12 ukuba siyanyamezela, solawula kwandawonye naye; ukuba siyamkhanyela, naye wosikhanyela;

2:13 ukuba asithembekile, yena uhlala ethembekile; akanako ukuzikhanyeza.

2:14 Bakhumbuze ezo zinto, uqononondise emehlweni eNkosi, ukuba kungenziwa mfazwe yamazwi angancedi lutho, kuze kubhukuqeke abaphulaphuli.

2:15 Kukhuthalele ukuzimisa phambi koThixo ucikidekile, ungumsebenzi ongenazintloni, ulungisa ukulahlula ilizwi lenyaniso.

2:16 Ke zona iintetho ezingento, ezihlambelayo, zinxweme; kuba ziya kuhambela phambili kokukhona kungahloneli Thixo.

2:17 Nelizwi labo liya kudla njengesilonda esiqhenqethayo; abanoHimenayo noFileto,

2:18 abathe bona bayiphosa inyaniso, besithi uvuko seluthe lwakho, kananjalo belubhukuqa ukholo lwenxenye.

2:19 Noko ke limi, lithe nkqi, ilitye lesiseko likaThixo, linambhalo uthi, INkosi iyabazi abangabayo; nothi, Mabasuke kuko ukungalungisi, bonke abalibizayo igama likaKristu.

2:20 Ke endlwini enkulu akubikho zitya zagolide nazasilivere zodwa; kubakho nezomthi nezomdongwe. Inxenye ke zezembeko, inxenye azizambeko.

2:21 Ukuba ngoko umntu uthe wazikhuphulula kwezo zinto, woba sisitya sembeko, singcwalisiwe, simlungele kakuhle umninindlu, silungiselwe wonke umsebenzi olungileyo.

2:22 Ke zibaleke iinkanuko zobutsha; phuthuma ke ubulungisa, ukholo, uthando, uxolo nabo bayinqulayo iNkosi ngokwasentliziyweni ehlambulukileyo.

2:23 Yinxweme imibuzwana yobudenge engenangqeqesho, usazi ukuba izala imfazwe.

2:24 Ke umkhonzi weNkosi akamele kulwa; umele ukuba nokuthantamisa kubantu bonke, enokufundisa, enyamezela ububi,

2:25 ebaqeqesha ngobulali abo baphikayo; ukuba akangethi na kanti uThixo abaphe inguquko esa ekuyazini inyaniso,

2:26 babuye baqabuke, baphume esibatheni sakhe uMtyholi, ababanjiselwe ukuthanda kwakhe nguye.

3:1 Ke, kwazi oku, ukuba ngemihla yokugqibela kuya kufika amaxesha anomngcipheko.

3:2 Kuba abantu baya kuba ngabazithandayo, abathandi bemali, abaqhankqalazi, abakratshi, abanyelisi, abangeva bazali,

3:3 abangabuleliyo, abangengcwele, abangenabubele, abangenatarhu, abatyholi, abangenakuzeyisa, izibhoja, abangenakuthanda kulunga,

3:4 abancethezi, izityhuthutyhuthu, abathiwe lwale likratshi, abathandi beziyolo kunokuba bathande uThixo;

3:5 benokumila kokuhlonela uThixo, ukanti bayawakhanyela amandla ako. Kwabo ke khwebuka.

3:6 Kuba baphuma kwaba, abo banyebelezela ezindlwini, bathimbe abafazazana abazono ziziimfumba, bephethwe ziinkanuko ngeenkanuko,

3:7 behlala befunda, bangaze phofu babe nako ukufika ekuyazini inyaniso.

3:8 Kwangolo hlobo ke, bathi ooYanes noYambres bamchasa uMoses, ngokunjalo nabo aba bayayichasa inyaniso. Bangabantu abonakele iingqiqo, abangenakucikideka ngakulo ukholo.

3:9 Abayi kuhambela phambili ngakumbi; kuba ukungabi nangqiqo kwabo kuya kubonakala kubantu bonke, njengokuba kwaba njalo okwabaya.

3:10 Ke wena uyilandile eyam imfundiso, ihambo, ingqibo, ukholo, ukuzeka kade umsindo, uthando, unyamezelo,

3:11 iintshutshiso, iintlungu ezinjengezo zandihlelayo kwa-Antiyokwe, eIkoniyo, eListra; ukutshutshiswa okunjengoko ndakuthwalayo, yaza iNkosi yandihlangula kuko konke.

3:12 Nabo bonke ke abathanda ukuhlala ngokuhlonela uThixo kuKristu Yesu baya kutshutshiswa.

3:13 Ke bona abantu abangendawo noosiyazi, kukhona baya kuhambela phambili ebubini, belahlekisa, belahlekiswa.

3:14 Ke wena yima ezintweni owazifundayo, waqiniselwa kuzo, umazi owazifunda kuye;

3:15 nokuba uzaze kwasebuntwaneni izibhalo ezingcwele, ezinako ukukulumkisela elusindisweni ngokukholwa kuKristu Yesu.

3:16 Sonke isibhalo, siphefumlelwe nguThixo nje, sikwancedela ukufundisa, ukohlwaya, ukululeka, ukuqeqesha okusebulungiseni,

3:17 ukuze umntu kaThixo afaneleke, exhobele wonke umsebenzi olungileyo.

4:1 Ndiyaqononondisa mna ngoko emehlweni kaThixo, neNkosi yethu uYesu Kristu, oza kugweba abaphilileyo nabafileyo, kwanangokubonakala kwakhe nobukumkani bakhe:

4:2 livakalise ilizwi; zingisa ukwenjenjalo ngamathuba alungileyo naxakileyo; yohlwaya, khalimela, vuselela, unako konke ukuzeka kade umsindo, nokufundisa.

4:3 Kuba kuya kubakho ixesha abangayi kuyinyamezela imfundiso ephilileyo; baya kusuka ngokweenkanuko zabo bazifumbele abafundisi, bebaba iindlebe;

4:4 babeya kuzisonga zimke iindlebe kuyo inyaniso, baphambukele ke kuzo iintsomi.

4:5 Ke wena yiba yingcathu ezintweni zonke, nyamezela ububi, umsebenzi womshumayeli weendaba ezilungileyo wenze, buzalise ubulungiseleli bakho.

4:6 Kuba mna sendithululwa ngokomnikelo; nalo ixesha lokunduluka kwam likufuphi.

4:7 Umzamo omhle ndiwuzamile, ugqatso ndilufezile, ukholo ndilugcinile.

4:8 Okokugqibela ndibekelwe isithsaba sobulungisa, eya kundibuyisela ngaso ngaloo mini iNkosi, umgwebi olilungisa; ingabi ndim ndedwa ke, ibe ngabo bonke abakuthandayo ukubonakala kwayo.

4:9 Khawuleza uze kum kamsinya;

4:10 kuba uDemasi wandishiya ngokuthanda iphakade langoku, waya eTesalonika; uKreske uye kwelaseGalati; uTito uye kwelaseDalmati.

4:11 NguLuka yedwa onam. Thabatha uMarko uze naye; kuba unokundinceda kakuhle kumsebenzi wokulungiselela.

4:12 Ke uTikiko ndamthumela e-Efese.

4:13 Ingubo endayishiya eTrowa kuKarpo, uze uyiphathe ekuzeni kwakho, neencwadi ezo, ngokukodwa ezezintsu.

4:14 UAlesandire, umkhandi wobhedu, wandenza izinto ezininzi ezimbi; iNkosi iya kumbuyekeza ngokwemisebenzi yakhe.

4:15 Mlumkele nawe; kuba wawachasa kunene amazwi ethu.

4:16 Kokokuqala ukuziphendulela kwam, akubangakho namnye unam, basuka bonke bandishiya; kwanga akungebalelwe kubo oko.

4:17 Noko ke iNkosi yandinceda, yandomeleza; ukuze ngam uvakaliso lweendaba ezilungileyo luzaliseke, neentlanga zonke zive; ndaza ndahlangulwa emlonyeni wengonyama.

4:18 Isaya kundihlangula yona iNkosi kuwo wonke umsebenzi ongendawo, indisindisele ebukumkanini bayo obusemazulwini; kuyo makubekho uzuko, kuse emaphakadeni asemaphakadeni. Amen.

4:19 Bulisa kuPriska noAkwila, nakwindlu kaOnesiforo.

4:20 UErasto wasala eKorinte. Ke uTrofimo ndamshiya eMileto esifa.

4:21 Khawuleza uze, kungekabi sebusika. Uya kubulisa uYubhulo, noPudens, noLino, noKlawudiya, nabo abazalwana bonke.

4:22 INkosi uYesu Kristu mayibe nomoya wakho. Ubabalo malube nani. Amen.
