Xhosa Bible: Hebrews

1:1 UThixo wayethethile nje kudala ngeendawo ezininzi, nangeendlela ezininzi, koobawo ngabo abaprofeti, uthethe ngale mihla yokugqibela kuthi ngoNyana;

1:2 awammisayo wayindlalifa yeento zonke, awathi kwangaye wayenza indalo yonke;

1:3 othe, elubengezelo lobuqaqawuli bakhe, nombhalo wenkqu yakhe, ezithwele nokuzithwala zonke izinto ngalo ilizwi lamandla akhe, wesuka, akuba eyenzile ngokwakhe intlambululo yokusihlambulula ezonweni, wahlala phantsi ngasekunene kobuKhulu, enyangweni;

1:4 ethe waba ngonamandla ngaphezu kwezithunywa zezulu, ngangoko azuze ilifa legama eligqithiseleyo kunelazo.

1:5 Kuba sisiphi na isithunywa, awakha wathi kuso, UnguNyana wam wena, Mna ndikuzele namhla? Nokuthi, Mna ndiya kuba nguYise wakhe, Yena abe nguNyana wam?

1:6 Nangexa athi amngenise owamazibulo kwelimiweyo, uthi, Maziqubude kuye zonke izithunywa zikaThixo.

1:7 Okunene ngazo izithunywa zezulu uthi, Ulozenza izithunywa zakhe oomoya, Nababusi bakhe ilangatye lomlilo;

1:8 kodwa ngaye yena uNyana uthi, Itrone yakho, Thixo, isa ephakadeni lasephakadeni; Yintonga ethe tye intonga yobukumkani bakho.

1:9 Wathanda ubulungisa, wathiya okungendawo; Ngenxa yoko, uThixo, uThixo wakho, ukuthambise Ngeoli yomgcobo ngaphezu kowenu.

1:10 Abuye athi, Ekuqalekeni, wena Nkosi, waliseka ihlabathi, Nalo izulu lingumsebenzi wezandla zakho;

1:11 Wona aya kutshabalala, ke wena uhlala uhleli; Aye onke njengengubo eya konakala,

1:12 Nanjengesambatho uya kuwasonga, Asuke abe ngawambi; Ke wena ukwanguwe, Nayo iminyaka yakho ayiyi kuphela.

1:13 Sisiphi na ke isithunywa, awakha wathi kuso, Hlala ngasekunene kwam, Ndide iintshaba zakho ndizenze isihlalo seenyawo zakho?

1:14 Azingomoya ababusayo zonke na, zithunywe ukuba zilungiselele abo baza kuba ziindlalifa zalo usindiso?

2:1 Ngenxa yoko, simelwe kukuzinyamekela ngokugqithiseleyo izinto esazivayo, hleze sikhukuliswe simke kuzo.

2:2 Kuba, ukuba ilizwi elathethwa ngezithunywa zezulu laqina, kwathi konke ukugqitha nokungeva kwamkela umvuzo oyeleleyo;

2:3 sothini na thina ukusinda, sakuba siluhilizele usindiso olungakanana, lona lwaqalwa ukuthethwa yiyo iNkosi, lwaza lwaqiniselwa kuthi ngabo baluvayo;

2:4 uThixo engqinelana nabo ngemiqondiso kwanezimanga, nemisebenzi ngemisebenzi yamandla, nezabelo zoMoya oyiNgcwele, ngokokuthanda kwakhe?

2:5 Kuba akalithobelanga phantsi kwezithunywa zezulu elimiweyo eliza kubakho, eli sithetha ngalo.

2:6 Ke, wakha wangqina ubani, esithi, Uyintoni na umntu, le nto umkhumbulelayo? Unyana womntu, le nto umvelelayo?

2:7 Wamnciphisa kancina ne kunezithunywa zezulu, Wamthwesa uzuko nembeko. Wammisa phezu kwemisebenzi yezandla zakho;

2:8 Zonke izinto wazithobela phantsi kweenyawo zakhe. Kuba, ekubeni wazithobela phantsi kwakhe zonke izinto ezo, akashiyanga nto ingathotyelwanga phantsi kwakhe. Kukaloku ke asikaziboni zithotyelwe phantsi kwakhe zonke izinto.

2:9 Ke sibona lo uncitshiswe kancinane kunezithunywa zezulu, uYesu ke, ethe ngenxa yeentlungu zokufa wathweswa uzuko nembeko, ukuze ngobabalo lukaThixo eve ukufa ngenxa yabo bonke.

2:10 Kuba bekumfanele lowo, ezingenxa yakhe zonke izinto ezo, nezingaye zonke izinto ezo, ekubeni ezise oonyana abaninzi eluzukweni, ukuthi ayenze ngeentlungu igqibelele imbangi yosindiso lwabo.

2:11 Kuba lowo ungcwalisayo, kwanabo bangcwaliswayo, baphuma kumnye bonke; ekungenxa yeli thuba angenazintloni ukubabiza ngokuthi ngabazalwana,

2:12 esithi, Ndiya kulixela igama lakho kubo abazalwana bam. Ndivume phakathi kwebandla elokudumisa wena.

2:13 Abuye athi, Ndiya kukholosa ngaye. Abuye athi, Yabona, mna nabantwana andinike bona uThixo.

2:14 Ekubeni ngoko abantwana abo bengamadlelane naye ngenyama negazi, wathi naye ngokwakhe ngokukwanjalo wabelana nabo ngezo zinto, ukuze ngako ukufa ambhangise lowo unamandla okufa, oko kukuthi, uMtyholi lo;

2:15 abakhulule ebukhobokeni bonke abo babethe ngalo lonke ixesha lokudla kwabo ubomi bazizisulu zokoyika ukufa.

2:16 Kuba ndithi, akathabatheli kuye zithunywa; uthabathela kuye imbewu ka-Abraham.

2:17 Ekuthe ngoko wafanelwa kukuba afane nabazalwana bakhe ngezinto zonke, ukuze abe ngonenceba, kwanombingeleli othembekileyo omkhulu ezintweni ezilunge kuThixo, ukuze azicamagushele izono zabantu.

2:18 Kuba ekubeni eve ubunzima, ehendiwe naye ngokwakhe, unako ukubasiza abahendwayo.

3:1 Ndithi ngoko, bazalwana bangcwele, mabelana ngobizo lwasemazulwini, mondeleni uMpostile, uMbingeleli oMkhulu wovumo lwethu, uKristu Yesu;

3:2 ethembekile kulowo wamenzayo, kwanjengoMoses endlwini yakhe iphela.

3:3 Kuba lo ubalelwe ekuthini ufanelwe luzuko olungaphezu kolukaMoses; ngangokuba lowo wayakhayo indlu, enembeko engaphezu kwayo indlu.

3:4 Kuba yonke into eyindlu inoyakhayo; ke lowo wazakhayo zonke izinto nguThixo.

3:5 Okunene noMoses ebethembekile endlwini yakhe iphela ngokomkhonzi, ukuze bube bubungqina obo bezinto eziya kuthethwa.

3:6 Ke yena uKristu uthembeke ngokonyana phezu kwendlu yakhe; esiyindlu yakhe ke thina, ukuba singaba sithe sakubamba ngokuthe nkqi ukungafihlisi kwethu, neqhayiya lethemba lethu, sada sesa ekupheleni.

3:7 Endithi ke, njengoko atshoyo uMoya oyiNgcwele, Namhla, ukuba nithe naliva ilizwi lakhe,

3:8 Musani ukuzenza lukhuni iintliziyo zenu, Njengasengcaphukisweni, ngomhla wolingo entlango;

3:9 Apho bandilingayo ooyihlo, bandicikida, Bayibona imisebenzi yam iminyaka emashumi mane.

3:10 Kungoko ndakruqukayo seso sizukulwana, Ndathi, Bahlala belahleka ngeentliziyo, Abazazi ke bona iindlela zam;

3:11 Njengoko ndafungayo, ndinengqumbo, Ndathi, Unakanye ukuba bokha bangene ekuphumleni kwam!

3:12 Lumkani, bazalwana, hleze kubekho kubani wenu intliziyo engendawo, engakholwayo, enokumka kuThixo ophilileyo;

3:13 manivuselelane imihla ngemihla, xa kusathiwa kunamhla, ukuze kungabikho mntu kuni wenziwa lukhuni kukulukuhla kwesono.

3:14 Kuba siba ngamabelana ngoKristu, ukuba sithe ingqalo yokukholosa kwethu sayibamba ngokuthe nkqi, sada sesa ekupheleni;

3:15 ekubeni kusithiwa, Namhla, ukuba nithe naliva ilizwi lakhe, Musani ukuzenza lukhuni iintliziyo zenu, njengasengcaphukisweni.

3:16 Kuba bathe abathile, bevile, bacaphukisa, phofu ingengabo bonke abo baphumayo eYiputa ngoMoses.

3:17 Yayingoobani na ke awakruquka ngabo iminyaka emashumi mane? Yabingengabo na abo bonayo, bazidumbu zawayo entlango?

3:18 Wafungela oobani na ke, ukuba abayi kungena ekuphumleni kwakhe, ingengabo abo bangevanga?

3:19 Siyabona ke, ukuba babengenakungena, ngenxa yokungakholwa.

4:1 Masoyike ngoko, hleze kuthi ekubeni kusasele idinga lokungena ekuphumleni kwakhe, kubekho bani kuni ungathi asilele.

4:2 Kuba sizishunyayeziwe iindaba ezilungileyo kwanjengabo; lathi kodwa ilizwi lodaba, lingadibananga nje nokholo kwabo balivayo, alabanceda nto.

4:3 Kuba thina sakholwayo, siyangena ekuphumleni, ngokoko athe, Njengoko ndafungayo, ndinengqumbo, Ndathi, Unakanye ukuba bokha bangene ekuphumleni kwam! nakubeni imisebenzi yenziwayo kususela ekusekweni kwehlabathi.

4:4 Kuba wakha wathetha ngawo umhla wesixhenxe, ukuthi, Waza waphumla uThixo ngawo umhla wesixhenxe kuyo yonke imisebenzi yakhe;

4:5 athi kule kananjalo, Unakanye ukuba bokha bangene ekuphumleni kwam.

4:6 Ekubeni ngoko kusalindele ke ukuthi kubekho bathile bangenayo kuko, baye abo, bashunyayezwayo iindaba ezilungileyo kuqala, bengangenanga ngenxa yokungeva:

4:7 ubuya amise mini ithile, esithi ngoDavide, Namhlanje, emveni kwexesha elingakanana; njengokuba kuthiwe, Namhla, ukuba nithe naliva ilizwi lakhe, Musani ukuzenza lukhuni iintliziyo zenu.

4:8 Kuba uYoshuwa, ukuba ubebaphumzile, ange engabuyanga athethe ngawo omnye umhla.

4:9 Ngoko ke abantu bakaThixo balindwe luphumlo olunjengolwesabatha.

4:10 Kuba lowo ungeneyo ekuphumleni kwakhe, naye ngokwakhe uphumle kuyo imisebenzi yakhe, njengoThixo kweyeyakhe.

4:11 Masikhuthalele ngoko ukungena koko kuphumla, ukuze kungabikho namnye ubuya eyele kwakuloo mzekelo wokungeva.

4:12 Kuba ilizwi likaThixo liphilile, lisebenza, libukhali ngaphezu kwamakrele onke antlangothi mbini; lihlaba liphumele, lide lahlule umphefumlo kwanomoya, amalungu kwanomongo; linokugweba iingcingane nezicamango zentliziyo.

4:13 Kanjalo akukho sidalwa singabonakaliyo emehlweni akhe; izinto zonke ke zize, zityhilekile, emehlweni alowo esinokuthana ni naye.

4:14 Ngoko, sinombingeleli omkhulu nje ocande emazulwini, UYesu ke, uNyana kaThixo, masilubambe uvumo lwethu.

4:15 Kuba asinambingeleli mkhulu ungenako ukuvelana nezilwelwe zethu; ke, sinowahendwayo ngeento zonke, ngokokufana nathi, engenasono.

4:16 Masisondlele ke ngoko sinokungafihlisi kuyo itrone yobabalo, ukuze samkeliswe inceba, sifumane ubabalo lokusiza ngexesha elililo.

5:1 Kuba wonke umbingeleli omkhulu, engovele ebantwini nje, umiselwa abantu ezintweni ezilunge kuThixo, ukuze asondeze iminikelo kwanamadini ngenxa yezono;

5:2 enokuthantamisa kwabangazi nto nabalahlekayo, ekubeni naye ngokwakhe enxitywe ubulwelwe.

5:3 Ngenxa yabo ke ufanelwe kukuthi, njengokuba esondezela abantu, kwangokunjalo azisondezele amadini ngenxa yezono.

5:4 Kanjalo akukho mntu uzithabathela ngokwakhe imbeko leyo; oyithabathayo ngobizwe nguThixo, kwanjengoAron.

5:5 Ngokunjalo naye uKristu akazizukisanga ngokwakhe, ukuba abe ngumbingeleli omkhulu; wazukiswa ngowathethayo kuye, wathi, UnguNyana wam wena, Mna ndikuzele namhla;

5:6 njengokuba esithi nakwenye indawo, Wena ungumbingeleli ngonaphakade, Ngokohlobo lukaMelkitsedeke.

5:7 Owathi ngemihla yenyama yakhe, xa wayesondeze izikhungo kwanezibongozo kulowo unako ukumsindisa ekufeni, kunye nodanduluko olunamandla, neenyembezi, waviwa ngenxa yokumhlonela kwakhe uThixo.

5:8 Nakuba ebenguNyana, wafunda ukululama ngobunzima awabuvayo;

5:9 waza, egqibelele, waba yimbangi yosindiso olungunaphakade kubo bonke abamlulamelayo,

5:10 ebizwe nguThixo, ukuba abe ngumbingeleli omkhulu ngokohlobo lukaMelkitsedeke.

5:11 Esineendawo ezininzi zokuthetha ngaye, ezilukhuni ukuchazwa, ekubeni nina naba buthuntu iindlebe.

5:12 Kuba, nakuba benifanele ukuba ngabafundisi, ngenxa yokuba sekumzuzu nakholwayo, nibuye naswela umntu wokunifundisa iziqalelo zokuqala zezihlabo zikaThixo; nesuka naba ngabafanele ukusezwa amasi, anaba ngabafanele ukudla okuqinileyo.

5:13 Kuba bonke abasasezwa amasi abanamava elizwi lobulungisa, kuba beziintsana.

5:14 Kokwabakhulileyo ke ukudla okuqinileyo, abo bathi, ngenxa yobugcisa, babe nezimvo eziqheliselwe ukucalula okuhle kwanokubi.

6:1 Endithi ngoko, masithi, siyeka elengqalo ilizwi elithetha ngoKristu, siqhubele kwelokukhula; singabuyi siseke ngeloguquko emisebenzini efileyo, nokukholwa kuThixo,

6:2 ngelemfundiso yeembhaptizo, neyokubekwa izandla, neyovuko lwabafileyo, neyogwebo olungunaphakade.

6:3 Oko ke sokwenza, ukuba angaba uthe uThixo wavuma.

6:4 Kuba abo bakha bakhanyiselwa, basiva isipho sasemazulwini, baba ngamadlelana ngoMoya oyiNgcwele,

6:5 bayiva incasa yelizwi elihle likaThixo, kwanamandla ephakade eliza kubakho,

6:6 baza babuya bakreqa: akunakwenzeka ukuba babuye bahlaziyelwe enguqukweni; ekubeni bephinda ukuzibethelelela emnqamlezweni uNyana kaThixo, bamhlaze ekuhleni.

6:7 Kuba umhlaba lo, uyiselayo imvula eza futhi phezu kwawo, uvelise imifuno elungele bona abo ulinywa nokulinywa ngenxa yabo, wamkela intsikelelo kuThixo;

6:8 ke, othi uvelise imithana enameva neenkunzane, awunto yanto, ukufuphi nengqalekiso; esiphelo sisa ekutshisweni.

6:9 Ke ngani nina, zintanda, sikholose ngelokuthi, nineendawo ezilungileyo kunezo, iindawo eziyelelene nosindiso, nakuba sisenjenje ukuthetha;

6:10 kuba akanantswela-bulungisa uThixo, ukude awulibale umsebenzi wenu, nomzamo wothando enalubonakalalisa kulo igama lakhe, nabalungiselelayo nje abangcwele, nisamana nibalungiselela.

6:11 Sinqwenela ke, ukuba ulowo kuni alubonakalalise kwaolo lukhuthalo, asingise kwinzaliseko yethemba, ade ase ekupheleni, ukuze ningabi ngababuthuntu;

6:12 ke nibe ngabaxelisa abo bathi, ngokholo nangokunyamezela, bawadla ilifa amadinga.

6:13 Kuba wathi uThixo, akumbeka ngedinga uAbraham, ekubeni bekungekho namnye umkhulu kunaye angamfungayo, wazifunga yena,

6:14 esithi, Inene, ndiya kuthi, ndisikelela, ndikusikelele; ndithi, ndisandisa, ndikwandise.

6:15 Waza ngokunjalo, enokunyamezela, walifumanisa idinga.

6:16 Kuba abantu okunene bafunga lowo umkhulu kubo, sithi kubo isifungo siphelise yonke impikiswano, sise engqinisekweni.

6:17 Uthe ngoko uThixo, enga angathi ngokukhona kugqithiseleyo akubonakalalise kwiindlalifa zedinga ukungaguquleki kwecebo lakhe, wasuka walamla ngesifungo;

6:18 ukuze kuthi, ngezinto ezimbini ezingenakuguquleka, angenako ukuxoka ngazo uThixo, sithi thina, basindileyo, sabamba ithemba elibekwe phambi kwethu, sibe novuselelo olunamandla;

6:19 ithemba ke esinalo ngokweankile yomphefumlo, linqabile, likwaqinile, lingena liye ngaphaya kwesikhuselo;

6:20 apho umanduleli uYesu wangena khona ngenxa yethu, ethe, ngokohlobo lukaMelkitsedeke, waba ngumbingeleli omkhulu osa ephakadeni.

7:1 Kuba lo Melkitsedeke, kumkani weSalem, mbingeleli kaThixo Osenyangweni, wahlangabezanayo noAbraham, ebuya evela ekubulaleni ookumkani, wamsikelela;

7:2 awathi uAbraham wamabela nesishumi sezinto zonke (esithi okunene, ukuqala ukuthetha ngentetho evakalayo, ngukumkani wobulungisa, kodwa kamva abe nangukumkani weSalem, oko kukuthi, ngukumkani woxolo;

7:3 engenayise, engenanina, engenamlibo wakuzalwa, engenasiqalo samihla, engenasiphelo sabomi, enziwe wafana naye uNyana kaThixo): lo uhleli engumbingeleli ngokungapheliyo.

7:4 Bonani ke ukuba mkhulu kwalowo, wathi uAbraham umawokhulu wamnika nesishumi emaxhobeni, awona alinqatha.

7:5 Abo okunene bakoonyana bakaLevi, babamkelayo ububingeleli, banomthetho wokubanga isishumi kubo abantu ngokomthetho; oko kukuthi, kubo abazalwana babo, nakuba bephume esinqeni sika-Abraham.

7:6 Kodwa yena, ongenamlibo wakuzalwa uphumayo kubo, ubange isishumi kuAbraham, wasikelela lowo unamadinga.

7:7 Ke ngokungenakuphikwa, encinane into isikelelwa yeyona inkulu.

7:8 Kananjalo apha okunene ngabantu abanokufa, abathabatha isishumi; kodwa khona apho ngongqinelweyo ukuba udla ubomi.

7:9 Ukutsho ke ndithi, kubangwe ngoAbraham isishumi nakuLevi, lo wamkelayo izishumi;

7:10 kuba ubesesinqeni sikayise, oko uMelkitsedeke wamhlangabezayo.

7:11 Ke ngoko, ukuba okunene inzaliseko ibingabakho ngobubingeleli bakwaLevi (kuba abantu bewiselwe owobubingeleli umthetho), bekusafuneka ngantoni na ke, ukuba kubuye kuvele mbingeleli wumbi ngokohlobo lukaMelkitsedeke, angabizwa ngokohlobo luka-Aron?

7:12 Kuba, ububingeleli baguqulwa nje, kufuneka ukuba kuguqulwe nomthetho.

7:13 Kuba lowo, zithethwa ngaye ezi zinto, waye engowasizwe simbi, ebekungekho namnye kuso ubesinyamekele isibingelelo.

7:14 Kuba kusekuhleni kanye, ukuba iNkosi yethu iphume kwesikaYuda isizwe, eso angathethanga nto ngaso uMoses ngobubingeleli.

7:15 Kwaza kwasekuhleni ngakumbi, ukuba kuvela mbingeleli wumbi, ngokokufana noMelkitsedeke,

7:16 ongathanga amiswe ngokomyalelo womthetho ongowenyama; wamiswa ngokwamandla obomi obungenakupheliswa.

7:17 Kuba ungqina ngokuthi, Wena ungumbingeleli ngonaphakade, Ngokohlobo lukaMelkitsedeke.

7:18 Kuba okunene kutshitshiswa umthetho owandulelayo, ngenxa yokuswela amandla, nokungancedi lutho kwawo

7:19 (kuba umthetho lowo awuzalisanga nto); ke kungeniswe phezu kwawo elona themba lilungileyo; esisondela ngalo kuye uThixo.

7:20 Kanjalo, ngangokuba engamiswanga, kungabangakho sifungo (kuba bona aba okunene benziwe ababingeleli kungafungwanga;

7:21 kodwa yena umiswe ngokufunga kwalowo wathi kuye, Yafunga iNkosi, ayiyi kuzohlwaya: Wena ungumbingeleli ngonaphakade, ngokohlobo lukaMelkitsedeke):

7:22 ngangoko ke uYesu waba ngummeli wowona ulungileyo umnqophiso.

7:23 Bathe bona ababingeleli baba baninzi, ngenxa yokuba ukufa kwakungavumi ukuba bahlale behleli;

7:24 ke yena, ngenxa yokuba ehleli ngonaphakade, unobubingeleleli obungenakudlula.

7:25 Ngoko unako nokubasindisa kanye abo bezayo ngaye kuThixo, ehlala ehleli nje ukuba abathethelele.

7:26 Kuba ubesifanele umbingeleli omkhulu onjalo, ongcwele, ongenabubi, ongenabala, owahlukileyo kubo aboni, othe waba ngaphezu kwalo izulu;

7:27 ekungafunekiyo ukuba athi imihla ngemihla, njengababingeleli abakhulu abaya, anyuse kuqala amadini ngenxa yezono ezizezakhe, andule ukunyusa ngenxa yezabantu; kuba oko wakwenza kwaba kanye, ekuzinyuseni ngokwakhe ngokwedini.

7:28 Kuba umthetho umisa abantu benobulwelwe, babe ngababingeleli abakhulu; ke lona ilizwi lesifungo, esingasemva komthetho, limise uNyana, egqibelele ngonaphakade.

8:1 Ke kaloku, eyona nto iyintloko kwezi zinto zithethwayo yile: Sinombingeleli omkhulu onje, othe wahlala phantsi ngasekunene kwetrone yobuKhulu emazulwini,

8:2 ongumbusi wengcwele, nowomnquba wenyaniso owamiswayo yiNkosi, awamiswa ngumntu.

8:3 Kuba wonke umbingeleli omkhulu umiselwa ukuba asondeze iminikelo kwanamadini; ekuthe ngenxa yoko kwafuneka ukuba naye lo abe nento ayisondezayo.

8:4 Kuba okunene, ukuba ebesemhlabeni, ubengayi kukha abe mbingeleli, bekho nje ababingeleli abayisondezayo iminikelo ngokomthetho:

8:5 bona bathi bakhonze umzekelo nesithunzi sezinto zasemazulwini, kwanjengokuba uMoses wayehlatyelwe nguThixo, xa abeza kuwufeza umnquba; kuba wathi, Khangela ukuba uzenze zonke izinto ngokomfuziselo owawuboniswayo entabeni.

8:6 Kodwa kungoku, uzuze umbuso ogqithiseleyo kulowo, kangangokuba engumlamleli womnqophiso olungileyo ngakumbi, wona usekwe phezu kwawona madinga alungileyo.

8:7 Kuba, ukuba ubungenakusoleka lowo wokuqala, ubungayi kufunelwa ndawo owesibini.

8:8 Kuba uthi kubo, esola, Yabona, kuza imihla, itsho iNkosi, Endiya kuzalisekisa phezu kwendlu kaSirayeli, naphezu kwendlu kaYuda, umnqophiso omtsha;

8:9 Ungahambi ngokomnqophiso endawenzela ooyise, Mini ndababamba ngesandla, ukuba ndibakhuphe emhlabeni waseYiputa; Ngokuba bengahlalanga emnqophisweni wam bona, Ndaza nam andabakhathalela; itsho iNkosi;

8:10 Ngokuba nangu wona umnqophiso, endiya kuwenzela indlu kaSirayeli Emva kwaloo mihla, itsho iNkosi: Ndiya kuthi, ndiyibeke imithetho yam engqondweni yabo, Ndiyibhale ezintliziyweni zabo, Ndibe nguThixo kubo, Nabo babe ngabantu kum.

8:11 Kanjalo abayi kukha bafundise elowo ummelwane wakhe, Elowo umzalwana wakhe, esithi, Yazi iNkosi; Ngokuba baya kundazi bonke, Bethabathela komncinane wabo, base komkhulu wabo.

8:12 Ngokuba ndiya kukuxolela ukungalungisi kwabo, Nezono zabo, nokuchasa kwabo umthetho, ndingabi sakukhumbula.

8:13 Ngokuthi oku, Omtsha, uwaluphalisile owokuqala. Ke loo nto yalupheleyo, yalixhego, iseyisondele ekuthini shwaka.

9:1 Ke ngoko nowokuqala umnqophiso wawunezimiselo zombuso, kwanendawo engcwele yehlabathi.

9:2 Kuba kwakhiwa umnquba lowo. Igumbi lokuqala lalinesiphatho sezibane, kwanetafile, nesiboniso sezonka; lona kuthiwa yingcwele.

9:3 Emva ke kwesesibini isikhuselo, kwabakho umnquba lo kuthiwa yingcwele kangcwele;

9:4 unesibingelelo segolide sokuqhumisa; nayo ityeya yomnqophiso, yalekwe ngegolide ngeenxa zonke, inesitya segolide ngaphakathi esinemana, inentonga ka-Aron eyadubulayo, inawo amacwecwe omnqophiso.

9:5 Ke ngaphezu kwayo kwema iikerubhi zobuqaqawuli, zisibekele isicamagushelo; izinto ezo esingenakuthetha ngazo ngazinye ngoku.

9:6 Ke kaloku, zakubon’ ukuba zenziwe ngokunjalo ezo zinto, ababingeleli bangena okunene amaxa onke kowokuqala umnquba, beyifeza imibuso kaThixo.

9:7 Kodwa kowesibini kungena kube kanye ngomnyaka umbingeleli omkhulu yedwa, engangeni engenagazi, alisondezayo ngenxa yakhe, nangenxa yokungazi kwabantu.

9:8 Abe ngoku uMoya oyiNgcwele esazisa ukuthi, indlela eya kweyona ngcwele ayikabonakalaliswa, umnquba wokuqala usemi;

9:9 wona lo ungumzekeliso ozise exesheni elingeneyo, ekuthi ngalo kusondezwe iminikelo kwanamadini, izinto ezo ezingenako ngokwesazela ukumenza agqibelele lowo ukhonzayo;

9:10 ezithe, ndawonye nezinto ezidliwayo neziselwayo, neentlambululo ngeentlambululo, ezizizimiselo zenyama kuphela, zamiselwa ukuba kude kufike ixesha lolungiso.

9:11 Ke yena uKristu, efike wangumbingeleli omkhulu wazo izinto ezilungileyo eziza kubakho, uthe ngowona mkhulu ugqibeleleyo umnquba, ongenakwenziwa ngazandla, oko kukuthi, ongengowale ndalo,

9:12 wangena kwaba kanye kweyona ngcwele, kungengalo negazi leebhokhwe nelamathole, kungegazi elilelakhe; wafumana inkululo engunaphakade ngokusihlawulela.

9:13 Kuba, ukuba igazi leenkomo neleebhokhwe, nothuthu lwethokazi olufefa abaziinqambi, lungcwalisela ekuhlambululeni inyama:

9:14 lobeka phi na ukugqithisela lona igazi likaKristu, owazisondeza ngoMoya ongunaphakade, engenasiphako, kuye uThixo, ukusihlambulula isazela senu emisebenzini efileyo, ukuze nikhonze uThixo ophilileyo?

9:15 Nangenxa ke yoko, ungumlamleli womnqophiso omtsha, ukuze bathi abo babiziweyo (kwakubon’,ukuba kubekho ukufa okuhlawulela izigqitho, ezibe ziphantsi kwawo umnqophiso wokuqala), balamkele idinga lelifa elingunaphakade.

9:16 Kuba apho kukhoyo umnqophiso womyoleli, kufuneka ukuba kucace ukufa kwalowo unqophisileyo.

9:17 Kuba umnqophiso uqiniseka bakuba befile, ekubeni ungaze ube namandla xenikweni asadla ubomi lowo unqophisileyo.

9:18 Ekuthe ngoko nowokuqala awasungulwa kungekho gazi.

9:19 Kuba kuthe, kwakubon’ ukuba umthetho wonke uxeliwe nguMoses ebantwini bonke ngokomyalelo, walithabatha igazi lamathole neleebhokhwe, ndawonye namanzi, noboya obubomvu, nehisope, wafefa incwadi ngokwayo, kwanabantu bonke;

9:20 esithi, Eli ligazi lawo umnqophiso, aniwisele umthetho ngawo uThixo.

9:21 Nomnquba ke, nazo zonke iimpahla zombuso, wazifefa ngokunjalo ngegazi.

9:22 Kananjalo ngokomthetho ndingade ndithi, zonke izinto ziphantse ukuba zihlanjululwe ngegazi; kungaphalalanga gazi, akubikho kuxolelwa.

9:23 Kwafuneka ngoko, ukuba okunene izizekelo zezinto ezisemazulwini zihlanjululwe ngezinto ezinjalo, kodwa zona iziqu zazo ezasemazulwini zihlanjululwe ngamadini alungileyo kunalawo.

9:24 Kuba uKristu akangenanga kweyona ngcwele inokwenziwa ngezandla, engumfuziselo weyenyaniso; ungene kuwo amazulu ngokwawo, ukuba abonakale ngoku ebusweni bukaThixo ngenxa yethu.

9:25 Kananjalo akangenanga ukuze azisondeze futhi, njengokuba umbingeleli omkhulu ebengena kweyona ngcwele iminyaka ngeminyaka, enegazi lenye into;

9:26 okanye ange emelwe kukuba abe ebeve ubunzima futhi, kuseloko lasekwayo ihlabathi. Ke uthe ngoku, ekufinyezweni kwawo amaphakade, wabonakalaliswa kwaba kanye, ukuba atshitshise isono ngelilelakhe idini.

9:27 Ke kwanjengokuba ke abantu bemiselwe ukuba bafe kube kanye, ize ke emveni koko ibe ngumgwebo:

9:28 ngokunjalo uKristu, esondezwe kwaba kanye, ukuba asithwale asisuse isono sabaninzi, uya kuthi okwesibini, ngaphandle kwesono, abonakale kwabo bamlindileyo, ezisa usindiso.

10:1 Kuba umthetho, unesithunzi nje sodwa sezinto ezilungileyo eziza kubakho, ungenaso sona isimilo sazo izinto, awuze ube nako, iminyaka ngeminyaka, ngaloo madini bawasondeza ngokungapheliyo, ukubenza bagqibelele abo basondelayo.

10:2 Okanye ange engayekwanga na ukusondezwa, ngenxa yokuba abo bakhonzayo, behlanjululwe nje kwaba kanye, bengasenasazela sazono?

10:3 Kusuke kuwo apho kubekho ukukhunjuzwa kwezono iminyaka ngeminyaka.

10:4 Kuba akunakwenzeka ukuthi igazi leenkomo neleebhokhwe lisuse izono.

10:5 Kungoko, akungena ehlabathini, athi, Akuthandanga mbingelelo, namnikelo wakudla, Ke undilungisele umzimba;

10:6 Amadini atshiswayo kuphele, nangawesono, akukholiswanga ngawo.

10:7 Ndaza ndathi, Yabona, ndiyeza (Encwadini esongwayo kubhalwe ngam), Ndiza kwenza ukuthanda kwakho, Thixo.

10:8 Esithi nje ngentla, Imibingelelo, neminikelo yokudla, namadini atshiswayo kuphele, nangawesono, akuwathandanga, akukholiswanga ngawo (wona lawo asondezwayo ngokomthetho),

10:9 ubuye athi, Yabona, ndiza kwenza ukuthanda kwakho, Thixo. Ususa okokuqala, ukuze amise okwesibini.

10:10 Esithe, ngokokuthanda kwakhe, sangcwaliswa ngokusondezwa komzimba kaYesu Kristu, kwaba kanye.

10:11 Wonke ke ongumbingeleli uma okunene imihla ngemihla ebusa, ewasondeza futhi kwawona loo madini, angenako nakanye ukususa isono.

10:12 Kodwa yena lo, esondeze idini lalinye ngenxa yezono, usuke wahlala phantsi ngasekunene kukaThixo ngokungapheliyo;

10:13 okokugqibela elinde ukuba zide iintshaba zakhe zenziwe isihlalo seenyawo zakhe.

10:14 Kuba ngamnikelo mnye ubenze bagqibelela ngokungapheliyo abo bangcwaliswayo.

10:15 Uyasingqinela ke naye uMoya oyiNgcwele; kuba, emveni kokuba etshilo ngenxa engaphambili ukuthi,

10:16 Nangu wona umnqophiso, endiya kuwenza nabo Emva kwaloo mihla, itsho iNkosi, Ndiya kuyibeka imithetho yam ezintliziyweni zabo, Ndiya kuyibhala ezingqondweni zabo, ubuya athi,

10:17 Izono zabo nokuchasa umthetho kwabo ndingabi sakukhumbula.

10:18 Ke apho uxolelo lwezo zinto lukhona, akusekho mnikelo ngenxa yesono.

10:19 Ngoko, bazalwana, sinokungafihlisi nje ukungena kweyona ngcwele ngalo igazi likaYesu,

10:20 ngendlela entsha, ephilileyo, awayisungulela thina, iphumela esikhuselweni, oku kukuthi, enyameni yakhe;

10:21 sinombingeleli omkhulu nje phezu kwendlu kaThixo:

10:22 masisondele sinentliziyo eyinyaniso, sinenzaliseko yokholo, sifefiwe iintliziyo zethu, sisusiwe isazela esingendawo. Masithi, sihlanjiwe nje umzimba ngamanzi amhlophe,

10:23 silubambe uvumo lwethu lwethemba, lungabi nakuxengaxenga; kuba uthembekile lowo wabeka ngedinga.

10:24 Kanjalo masinyamekelane, ukuba silolane eluthandweni nasemisebenzini emihle;

10:25 singakuhilizeli ukuhlanganisana kwethu, njengesiko labanye. Masivuselelane kube kokukhona, niyibona nje ukuba imini leyo iyasondela.

10:26 Kuba, xa sithi sone ngabomi, emveni kokuba sakwamkelayo ukwazi inyaniso, akusasele dini ngenxa yezono;

10:27 sekusele ke ukulinda okoyikekayo kakhulu, umgwebo nomsindo womlilo, oza kudla abo bachasileyo.

10:28 Umntu obegiba okaMoses umthetho, ubebulawa kungekho tarhu, ngezwi lamangqina amabini, nokuba mathathu.

10:29 Niba wobeka phi na ke ukufanelwa kukubethwa okubi ngakumbi, lo umnyathelele phantsi uNyana kaThixo, walibalela ekuthini liyinqambi igazi lomnqophiso athe wangcwaliswa ngalo, wamgxeka uMoya wobabalo?

10:30 Kuba siyamazi lowo watshoyo ukuthi, Impindezelo yeyam, kuya kubuyekeza mna, itsho iNkosi. Kananjalo wathi, INkosi iya kubagweba abantu bayo.

10:31 Kuyoyikeka ke ukweyela ezandleni zoThixo ophilileyo.

10:32 Zikhumbuzeni ke imihla yangaphambili, enakhanyiselwa ngayo, nanyamezela umzamo omkhulu weentlungu;

10:33 enaphatha ukuthi nenziwe isibonelo ngeengcikivo kwaneembandezelo, naphatha ukuthi nibe ngamadlelana nabo bahamba ngokunjalo.

10:34 Kuba navelana nam ndisezintanjeni; kananjalo nakwamkela ngovuyo ukuphangwa kweempahla zenu, nisazi ukuba ninayo kuni ngokwenu emazulwini eyona mpahla ilungileyo, ihlala ihleli.

10:35 Musani ukukulahla ngoko ukungafihlisi kwenu, kona kunokwamkela umvuzo omkhulu.

10:36 Kuba kufuneka ukuba nibe nomonde, ukuze nithi, nakuba nikwenzile ukuthanda kukaThixo, nizuzane nalo idinga.

10:37 Kuba kusaya kuba mzuzwana mncinanana, Athi lowo uzayo afike, angalibali.

10:38 Ke lowo ulilungisa uya kudla ubomi obuphuma elukholweni; Ukuba ke uthe wahlehla, awuyi kukholiswa nguye umphefumlo wam.

10:39 Ke thina asingabahlehla baye entshabalalweni; singabokholo olusa ekuzuzeni umphefumlo.

11:1 Ukholo ke kukukholosa ngezinto ezithenjiweyo; kukweyiseka bubukho bezinto ezingabonwayo.

11:2 Kuba amanyange angqinelwa ngokuba nalo olo.

11:3 Ngokholo siyaqonda ukuba indalo le yonke yenziwe yabakho ngelizwi likaThixo, ukuze izinto ezi zibonwayo zibe aziphume kwezibonakalayo.

11:4 Ngokholo uAbheli wasondeza kuye uThixo umbingelelo ogqithileyo kunokaKayin, awangqinelwa ngawo ukuba ulilungisa, uThixo wayingqinelayo nje iminikelo yakhe; ngalo ke, efile nje, usathetha.

11:5 Ngokholo uEnoki wafuduselwa emazulwini ukuba angaboni kufa; akaba nakufunyanwa ke, ngenxa enokuba uThixo wamfudusayo; kuba ngaphambi kokufuduswa kwakhe, wangqinelwa ukuba umkholise kakuhle uThixo.

11:6 Ke, lungekho ukholo, akunakubakho ukumkholisa kakuhle; kuba lowo uzayo kuThixo, umelwe kukukholwa ukuba ukho, nokuba ungumvuzi wabo bamfunayo.

11:7 Ngokholo uNowa, ehlatyelwe nguThixo ngazo izinto ebezingekabonwa, wathi ngokoyika uThixo wawakha umkhombe wokusindisa indlu yakhe, awathi ngalo waligweba ihlabathi, waba yindlalifa yobulungisa obungokokholo.

11:8 Ngokholo uAbraham wathi, akubizwa, Wakululamela ukuba aphume, aye kuloo ndawo abeza kuyamkela ukuba ibe lilifa; waphuma ke, engazi kakuhle nalapho aya khona.

11:9 Ngokholo waba ngumphambukeli emhlabeni wedinga, wanga ukowasemzini, ehleli eminqubeni, ndawonye noIsake noYakobi, beziindlalifa zalo elo dinga ndawonye naye;

11:10 kuba wayewulindele umzi lo uneziseko, ungcibi, umbangi wawo, inguThixo.

11:11 Ngokholo noSara ngokwakhe wamkela amandla okumisa umzi, waza wazala, liseligqithile ixesha lokuba amithe, ekubeni wambalela ekuthini uthembekile lowo wabekayo ngedinga.

11:12 Kungoko kwazalwayo ngamnye, engofileyo ke lowo, into engangeenkwenkwezi zezulu ukuba yintabalala, nanjengentlabathi eselunxwemeni lolwandle, engenakubalwa.

11:13 Aba bonke bafa ngokokholo, bengawafumananga amadinga; besuka bawabona kude, bakholosa, bathakazela, bavuma ukuba bangabasemzini, balundwendwe emhla beni.

11:14 Kuba abo bathetha izinto ezinjalo, babonakalalisa ukuba bangxamele ikowabo.

11:15 Ke, ukuba okunene babekhumbula elo babephuma kulo, ngebaba nethuba lokubuyela kulo.

11:16 Kodwa ngoku bazolulela kwelona lilungileyo, oko kukuthi, kwelasemazulwini. Kungoko uThixo angenazintloni ngabo, ukuba kuthiwe unguThixo wabo, kuba ebalungisele umzi.

11:17 Ngokholo uAbraham wamnikela uIsake, akulingwa; waye, owawamkelayo ngovuyo amadinga lawo, enikela okuphela kwawamzalayo;

11:18 ekwakuthethwe kuye kwathiwa, Iya kubizwa ngoIsake imbewu yakho;

11:19 ecamanga ngokuthi, uThixo unako ukuvusa nakwabafileyo; apho athe ngoko Wamzuza ngokomzekeliso.

11:20 Ngokholo uIsake wabasikelela uYakobi noEsawu, ngazo izinto eziza kubakho.

11:21 Ngokholo uYakobi uthe, xa aqhawukayo, wabasikelela oonyana bakaYosefu ngabanye, waqubuda esimelele ngentonga yakhe.

11:22 Ngokholo uYosefu uthe, xa abhubhayo, wakukhankanya ukuphuma koonyana bakaSirayeli, wawisa umthetho ngawo amathambo akhe.

11:23 Ngokholo uMoses uthe, akuba ezelwe, wafihlwa iinyanga zantathu ngabazali bakhe, ngenxa enokuba bambona ukuba ungumntwana omhle, abasoyika isimiselo sokumkani.

11:24 Ngokholo uMoses uthe, akuba mkhulu, akavuma ukubizwa ngokuthi ungunyana wentombi kaFaro;

11:25 enyula kanye ukuba aphathwe kakubi, ndawonye nabantu bakaThixo, kunokuba axhamle izono okomzuzwana;

11:26 ekubalele ukungcikivwa kukaKristu kububutyebi obungaphezu kobutyebi baseYiputa, kuba wayekhangele ukwamkela umvuzo.

11:27 Ngokholo wayishiya iYiputa, akawoyika umsindo wokumkani; kuba wakrota, wanga uyambona lowo ungenakubonwa.

11:28 Ngokholo uyenzile ipasika nokutshizwa kwegazi, ukuze lowo wayewatshabalalisa amazibulo angawachukumisi.

11:29 Ngokholo baluwela uLwandle oluBomvu, kwanga kusemhlabeni owomileyo; athe amaYiputa, akukulinga oko, antywiliselwa.

11:30 Ngokholo zawa iindonga zaseYeriko, zakuba zijikeleziwe iimini ezisixhenxe.

11:31 Ngokholo uRahabhi ihenyukazi akatshabalalanga nabo bangevayo, akuba ezamkele iintlola ngoxolo.

11:32 Ndisathetha ntoni na? Kuba ndingaphelelwa lixesha ndibalisa ngoGidiyon, kwanoBharaki, noSamson, noYifeta, kwanoDavide, noSamuweli, nangabo abaprofeti;

11:33 abathe ngokholo beyisa izikumkani, basebenza ubulungisa, bazuzana namadinga, bavingca imilomo yeengonyama,

11:34 bacima amandla omlilo, basinda kwiintlangothi zekrele, bomelela ekubeni bebeswele amandla, baba ngamagorha emfazweni, bagxotha imikhosi yabasemzini.

11:35 Abafazi babazuza abafileyo babo bevukile; abanye ke batyakatywa, bengalwamkelanga ukhululo, ukuze bazuzane nolona luvuko lululo.

11:36 Bambi ke benziwa intlekisa, batyakatywa; phezu koko ke baviswa imixokelelwane nentolongo;

11:37 baxulutywa ngamatye; basarhwa; bahendwa; bafa kukubulawa ngekrele; bahamba ngeengubo zeegusha nangeengaga zeebhokhwe, beswele, bebandezelwe, bephathwa kakubi

11:38 (elalingabafanele ihlabathi), bedinga koozintlango, noozintaba, noomiqolomba, nakwimingxuma yomhlaba.

11:39 Aba ke bonke bathi, nakuba babengqinelwe ngalo ukholo, abazuzana nalo idinga,

11:40 uThixo esazalelele thina ngeyona nto ilungileyo, ukuze bangenziwa bagqibelele ngaphandle kwethu.

12:1 Ngako oko ke, sinelifu elingakanana nje elisingqongileyo lamangqina, masithi nathi, siwubekile nxamnye wonke umthwalo, naso isono esinokusirhawula ngokusisulu, silubaleke ngomonde ugqatso olubekwe phambi kwethu;

12:2 sise amehlo kuyo iMbangi noMgqibelelisi wokholo lwethu, uYesu, owathi, ngenxa yovuyo olwalubekwe phambi kwakhe, wawunyamezela umnqamlezo, elidelile ihlazo, waza wahlala phantsi ngasekunene kwetrone kaThixo.

12:3 Ewe, mqondeni lowo ukunyamezeleyo ukumphikisa okungaka kwaboni, ukuze ningadinwa, ingatyhafi imiphefumlo yenu.

12:4 Anikachasi kude kube segazini, nizamana naso isono.

12:5 Kananjalo senilulibele uvuselelo olu, luthetha kuni ngathi kukoonyana, lusithi, Nyana wam, musa ukukucekisa ukuqeqesha kweNkosi, Kananjalo ungatyhafi wakohlwaywa yiyo;

12:6 Kuba lowo imthandayo iNkosi iyamqeqesha, Ibatyakatye ke bonke oonyana ebamkelayo.

12:7 Ukuba ninyamezela uqeqesho, uThixo woba uniphethe njengoonyana; kuba nguwuphi na unyana ongaqeqeshwayo nguyise?

12:8 Ukuba ke aniqeqeshwa, abathe baba ngamadlelane ngalo bonke, noba nina niyimigqakhwe ngoko, aningoonyana.

12:9 Kananjalo sibe sinabo oobawo benyama okunene besiqeqesha, sabahlonela; asiyi kuthi ngakumbi na sithobele uYise woomoya bonke, sidle ubomi?

12:10 Kuba bona okunene basiqeqesha imihla embalwa, ngokokuzithandela kwabo, kodwa yena usiqeqeshela okusilungeleyo, ukuze sahlulelane ngobungcwele bakhe.

12:11 Lonke ke uqeqesho okunene ngokwakalokunje alubonakali luluvuyo, lubonakala luyintlungu; kodwa kamva lubanika isiqhamo esiluxolo, oko kukuthi sobulungisa, abo baqhelisiweyo lulo.

12:12 Kungoko endithi, Zimiseni izandla eziwileyo, namadolo anedumbe;

12:13 iinyawo zenu nizenzele imizila ethe tye, ukuze into eqhwalelayo ingaphambuki endleleni, kanye ke iphiliswe.

12:14 Phuthumani uxolo nabo bonke, nobungcwele, ekungekho namnye uya kuyibona iNkosi, engenabo;

12:15 nivelela, ukuze kungabikho bani usilelayo elubabalweni lukaThixo, kungabikho ngcambu yabukrakra, ithi ivele ihlume, inikhathaze, bathi abaninzi badyojwe yiyo;

12:16 kungabikho bani ulihenyu, nokuba ngumhlambeli, njengoEsawu, owathi ngenxa yentwana yokudla wananisa ngobuzibulo bakhe.

12:17 Kuba niyazi ukuba wathi kamva, ethanda ukuyidla ilifa intsikelelo, walahlwa; kuba akafumananga thuba languquko, noko wayingxamelayo ngeenyembezi.

12:18 Kuba anisondelanga ntabeni iphathwayo, itshayo ngumlilo, nasithokothokweni, na bumnyameni, naluqhwitheleni,

12:19 nasandini saxilongo, nasithongeni samazwi, abathe abo basivayo bacela kabukhali, ukuba kungabi sathethwa lizwi kubo.

12:20 Kuba babengenakukuthwala oko babeyalwa ngako; nokuba ithe inkomo yayichukumisa intaba, ibiya kuxulutywa ngamatye, ithi mhlawumbi ibinzwe ngomkhonto;

12:21 yaza loo nto yabonakalayo yoyikeka, kangangokuba uMoses athi, Ndiyoyika kakhulu, ndiyagubha.

12:22 Nisuke nina nafika eZiyon, entabeni nasemzini woThixo ophilileyo, kwiYerusalem yasemazulwini, nakumawakawaka ezithunywa zezulu,

12:23 kwingqungquthela, nakwibandla lamazibulo abhaliweyo emazulwini, nakuThixo, uMgwebi wabo bonke, nakoomoya bamalungisa agqibeleleyo,

12:24 nakuMlamleli womnqophiso omtsha, uYesu, nakwigazi lokufefa, elithetha ezona zinto zilungileyo kunelika-Abheli.

12:25 Lumkani, ningamali lowo uthethayo. Ukuba ke abo, bamalayo lowo wahlabayo izihlabo emhlabeni, abasindanga, kobeka phi na ke ukugqithisela kokungasindi kwethu, thina bamnikela umva lowo uhlaba esemazulwini;

12:26 olizwi oko lawuzamazamisayo umhlaba; ngoku ke ubeke ngedinga, esithi, Kusaya kuba ngumzuzwana endiya kuthi mna ndinganyikimisi mhlaba wodwa, ndinyikimise nalo izulu.

12:27 Oku kuthi ke, Kusaya kuba ngumzuzwana, kubonakalalisa ukuguqulwa kwezinto ezizanyazanyiswayo, ngathi kokwezenziweyo, ukuze zihlale zona ezingenakuzanyazanyiswa.

12:28 Masithi ngoko, sisamkela ubukumkani obungenakuzanyazanyiswa nje, sibe nombulelo, simkhonze ngawo uThixo ngokukholekileyo, sinokuhlonela nokoyika;

12:29 kuba uThixo wethu ungumlilo odlayo.

13:1 Uthando lobuzalwana maluhlale luhleli.

13:2 Musani ukukulibala ukubuka iindwendwe; kuba ngokwenjenjalo inxenye ibuke izithunywa zezulu, ingazi.

13:3 Bakhumbuleleni abakhonkxiweyo, ninge nikhonkxiwe nani; nabo ke baphathwa kakubi, njengokuba nisemzimbeni nani.

13:4 Umtshato mawubekeke ngeendlela zonke, nesilili masingadyojwa; ke abenza umbulo nabakrexezi, uThixo uya kubagweba.

13:5 Isimilo senu masibe sesingathandi mali, yanelani zizinto eninazo; kuba etshilo yena ukuthi, Andiyi kukha ndikuyekele; wabuya wathi, Andiyi kukha ndikushiye;

13:6 ngokokude somelele sithi, INkosi ilusizo lwam, andiyi koyika; Wondenza ntoni na umntu?

13:7 Bakhumbuleleni abakhokeli benu, abalithethayo kuni ilizwi likaThixo; nisingasinga impumelelo yehambo yabo, nixelise bona elukholweni lwabo.

13:8 UYesu Kristu ukwanguye izolo, nanamhla, ase nakuwo amaphakade.

13:9 Musani ukuphetshethwa ziimfundiso ngeemfundiso nezingezizo; kuba kuhle ukuba intliziyo iqine lubabalo; kungabi ngeento ezidliwayo, abangancedekanga zizo abo bahamba kuzo.

13:10 Sinesibingelelo thina, abangenagunya lakudla kuso abo bakhonza umnquba.

13:11 Kuba ezo zinto ziphilileyo, zigazi lazo lingeniswa ngenxa yesono kweyona ngcwele nguye umbingeleli omkhulu, imizimba yazo itshiselwa ngaphandle kweminquba.

13:12 Kungoko athe noYesu, ukuze abangcwalise abantu ngelilelakhe igazi, weva ubunzima ngaphandle kwesango.

13:13 Masiphume ke ngoko siye kuye ngaphandle kweminquba, sithwele ingcikivo yakhe.

13:14 Kuba apha asinamzi uhleliyo, singxamele lowo uza kuza.

13:15 Ngoko masithi ngaye sinyuse ngamaxesha onke kuye uThixo umbingelelo wendumiso, oko kukuthi, isiqhamo somlomo olivumayo igama lakhe.

13:16 Ke ukwenza okuhle nobudlelane, musani ukukulibala; kuba imibingelelo enjalo uyakholiswa kakuhle yiyo uThixo.

13:17 Bathambeleni abakhokeli benu, nibathobele; kuba bona abalali, ngenxa yemiphefumlo yenu, ngokwabaya kuphendula, ukuze bakwenze oko bevuyile, bengancwini; kuba anisizakali kuko oko.

13:18 Sithandazeleni; kuba sikholosekile kukuthi sinesazela esilungileyo, singa ezintweni zonke singahamba kakuhle.

13:19 Ndiyavuselela ke ngokugqithiseleyo, ukuba nikwenze oko, ukuze ndibuyiselwe kuni kamsinyane.

13:20 Ke kaloku uThixo woxolo, lowo wamvusayo kwabafileyo uMalusi oMkhulu wezimvu, ngegazi lomnqophiso ongunaphakade,

13:21 iNkosi yethu uYesu, wanga anganilungisa, nigqibelele emisebenzini yonke elungileyo, ukuze nikwenze ukuthanda kwakhe, esenza ngaphakathi kwenu oko kukholekileyo emehlweni akhe, ngoYesu Kristu. Kuye makubekho uzuko, luse emaphakadeni asemaphakadeni. Amen.

13:22 Ndiyanivuselela ke nina, bazalwana, linyamezeleni ilizwi lovuselelo olu; kuba ke ndinibhalele ngokufutshane.

13:23 Yazini ukuba umzalwana wethu uTimoti ukhululwe; endothi, xa angaba uthe wafika kamsinya, ndinibone ndinaye.

13:24 Babuliseni bonke abakhokeli benu, nabo bonke abangcwele. Bayanibulisa abavela eItaliya.

13:25 Ubabalo malube nani nonke. Amen.
