Xa sitshoyo, singaba siyawaqala siziyaleze na? Okanye sifuna, njengabathile, kusini na, iincwadi zokuyalezwa kuni,nokuba zezokuyalezwa nini?

2

Incwadi yethu thina, ebhalwe ezintliziyweni zethu, nini;iyaziwa, ileswa ngabantu bonke;

3

nibonakalalisiwe nje ukuba niyincwadi kaKristu,eyalungiselelwa sithi, engabhalwanga ngainki, ebhalwe ngoMoya kaThixo ophilileyo; kungekhona emacwecweni amatye,kusemacwecweni angawenyama entliziyo.

4

Sinenkoloseko enjalo ke kuThixo ngaye uKristu.

5

Ukutsho andithi, sikulingene ngokwethu ukucamanga nto engathi iphuma kuthi ngokwethu; ukukulingana kwethu oko kuphuma kuThixo,

6

osenze nokusenza sakulingana ukuba ngabalungiseleli bomnqophiso omtsha; singabi ngabobhalo nje kodwa, sibe singabomoya; kuba ubhalo luyabulala, umoya ke udlisa ubomi.

7

Ke kaloku, ukuba ulungiselelo olo lubulalayo, lukroliweyo ematyeni ngobhalo, lweza lunobuqaqawuli, ngokude oonyana bakaSirayeli bangabi nakuqwalasela ebusweni bukaMoses, ngenxa yobuqaqawuli bobuso bakhe, ubuqaqawuli ke obebuza kubhanga:

8

lungathini na ulungiselelo lwakhe uMoya, ukungabi nobuqaqawuli ngokugqithiseleyo?

9

Kuba, ukuba ulungiselelo olugwebayo lunobuqaqawuli,kokukhona luya kugqithisela ngobuqaqawuli ulungiselelo lobulungisa.

10

Kuba kwanoko kwenziwe kwaba nobuqaqawuli, akwenziwanga kwaba nobuqaqawuli ngale ndawo, ngenxa ke yobuqaqawuli obu bona bubalaselayo.

11

Kuba xa oko bekuza kubhanga kunobuqaqawuli, kokukhona oku kuhleliyo kunobuqaqawuli.

12

Sinethemba elinjalo nje ke ngoko, kokukhona singafihlisiyo ukuthetha;

13

singaxelisi uMoses, yena wabeka isigqubuthelo ebusweni bakhe, ukuze oonyana bakaSirayeli bangaqwalaseli esiphelweni soko bekuza kubhanga.

14

Zesuka noko zaqaqadekiswa iingqiqo zabo; kuba nanamhla sisahleli kwaeso sigqubuthelo ekulesweni kwawo umnqophiso omdala, singabhenqwanga, nto leyo ke ibhangayo kuKristu.

15

Kusuke kwada kwaba namhlanje, kusithi, xenikweni kuleswa uMoses, kusuke kubekho isigqubuthelo entliziyweni yabo.

16

Ke xenikweni ithe ke yona yabuyela eNkosini sosuswa kuphele isigqubuthelo eso.

17

INkosi ke inguye uMoya; apho ke akhoyo uMoya weNkosi,kubakho inkululeko.

18

Thina ke sonke, sinobuso nje obubhenqwe isigqubuthelo,sibukhangela njengokwasesipilini ubuqaqawuli beNkosi, senziwa similise okwaloo mfanekiselo, sivela ebuqaqawulini sisinge ebuqaqawulini, kwanjengokuvela eNkosini enguMoya.
