Elokugqiba ngoko, bazalwana, siyanicela siniyala siseNkosini uYesu, ukuba nithi, njengokuba nakwamkelayo kuthi, okokuba nimelwe kukuthini na ukuhamba nokumkholisa uThixo, nikhule kuko ngakumbi.

2

Kuba niyazi ukuba zaba ziziyalo zini na, esaniyala ngazo ngeNkosi uYesu.

3

Kuba oku kukuthanda kukaThixo, ukungcwaliswa kwenu, ukuba nikhumke kulo uhenyuzo;

4

ukuba elowo kuni akwazi ukusizuza asiphathe esakhe isitya enobungcwalisa, enembeko;

5

angathabatheki yinkanuko, njengeentlanga ezingamaziyo uThixo;

6

ukuba kungabikho ugqithisayo, amlumkise umzalwana wakhe emcimbini lowo; ngenxa enokuba iNkosi ngumphindezeli wazo zonke ezi zinto, njengoko sasinixelele ngenxa engaphambili,saniqononondisa.

7

Kuba uThixo akasibizelanga ekungcoleni; usibizele ebungcwaliseni.

8

Ngako oko ke lowo ugibayo, akagibi mntu, ugiba uThixo,owasinikayo nokusinika uMoya wakhe oyiNgcwele.

9

Ke kaloku, ngalo uthando lobuzalwana, akufuneki ukuba ndinibhalele; kuba nina ngokwenu ningabafundiswe nguThixo ukuba nithandane;

10

kuba okunene niyakwenza oko kubo bonke abazalwana abakwelaseMakedoni liphela. Siyanivuselela ke, bazalwana, ukuba nikhule kuko oko ngakumbi;

11

nokuba nizondelele ukuba nizole, nenze ezenu izinto,nisebenze ngezenu izandla, njengoko saniyalayo;

12

ukuze nihambe ngokuzibekileyo ngakwabo bangaphandle,ningasweli nto.

13

Ke kaloku andithandi ukuba ningazi, bazalwana, mayela nabalele ukufa, ukuze ningabi buhlungu njengabanye abangenathemba bona.

14

Kuba xa sikholwa ukuba uYesu wafa, wabuya wavuka,kwangokunjalo naye uThixo woza nabo abalele ukufa ngaye uYesu,kunye naye.

15

Kuba oku siyakutsho kuni ngelizwi leNkosi ukuthi, thina babudlayo ubomi, baya kuba besekho ekufikeni kweNkosi, asisayi kubaphangela abalele ukufa.

16

Ngokuba iNkosi ngokwayo iya kuhla emazulwini inendanduluko,inelizwi lesiphatha-zithunywa, inexilongo likaThixo, baze abafele kuKristu bavuke kuqala;

17

sandule thina babudlayo ubomi, basaseleyo, sixwilelwe emafini kwakunye nabo, siye kuyikhawulela iNkosi esibhakabhakeni; size ngokunjalo sihlale sihleli, sindawonye neNkosi.

18

Ngoko ke thuthuzelanani ngala mazwi.
