1 Into yonke inexesha elimisiweyo, nomcimbi wonke unexesha lawo phantsi kwezulu:
2 ukuzala kunexesha lako, ukufa kunexesha lako; ukutyala kunexesha lako, ukunyothula okutyelweyo kunexesha lako;
3 ukubulala kunexesha lako, ukuphilisa kunexesha lako; ukuchitha kunexesha lako, ukwakha kunexesha lako;
4 ukulila kunexesha lako; ukuhleka kunexesha lako; kukho ixesha lokulila umbambazelo, kukho nexesha lokudloba;
5 kukho ixesha lokuchithachitha amatye, kukho nexesha lokufumba amatye; ukuwola kunexesha lako, ukuyeka ukuwola kunexesha lako;
6 ukufuna kunexesha lako, ukulahlekelwa kunexesha lako; ukugcina kunexesha lako, ukulahla kunexesha lako;

9 Unalungelo lini na lowo usebenzayo, kuloo nto ayenzela imigudu?
10 Ndiwubonile umzamo, awunike oonyana babantu uThixo, ukuba bawuzame.
11 Zonke izinto uzenze zantle ngexesha lazo; kwanephakade ulinikele ezintliziyweni zabo ngohlobo lokuba umntu angasifumani isenzo asenzayo uThixo, athabathele ekuqaleni ade ase ekupheleni.
12 Ndiyazi ke ukuba akukho nto ilungileyo phakathi kwabo, ingekukuvuya nokuzizuzela okulungileyo ebomini babo.
13 Kwanokuba wonke umntu adle, asele, abone okulungileyo emigudwini yakhe yonke: sisipho sikaThixo eso.
14 Ndiyazi ke ukuba yonke into aya kuyenza uThixo, yiyo eya kuba ngonaphakade; kungongezwa nto kuyo, kungacatshulwa nto kuyo: uThixo ukwenzela ukuba koyikwe ebusweni bakhe.
15 Le nto ikhoyo ibiselikho kade; nento eya kubakho ibiselikho kade. UThixo ke ubuya ayifune into egxothiweyo.
16 Ndabuya ndabona phantsi kwelanga indawo yokugweba, ukuba okungendawo kukhona; nendawo yobulungisa, ukuba okungendawo kukhona.
17 Ndathi mna entliziyweni yam, Nolilungisa nongendawo, uThixo uya kulithetha ityala labo; ngokuba umise ixesha layo yonke imicimbi, nazo zonke izenzo.
18 Ndathi mna entliziyweni yam, Kungenxa yoonyana babantu, ukuze uThixo abahlele, nokuze bazibone benjengeenkomo bona ngokwabo.
19 Ngokuba bayahlelwa oonyana babantu, ziyahlelwa neenkomo, sinye isihlo kubo nakuzo; njengoko kunjalo ukufa kwabo, kunjalo ukufa kwazo; mnye umoya kubo bonke nakuzo zonke; akukho kuyigqitha komntu inkomo; ngokuba zonke ezo nto zingamampunge.
20 Zonke ezo nto ziya ndaweni-nye; zonke ezo nto zavela eluthulini, zonke ezo nto zibuyela eluthulini.
21 Ngubani na owaziyo umoya woonyana babantu, ukuba uyenyuka na uye phezulu; nomoya wenkomo, ukuba uyehla na uye phantsi emhlabeni?
22 Ndaqonda ke ukuba akukho nto ilunge ngaphezu kokuba umntu avuye ezenzweni zakhe; ngokuba kusisabelo sakhe oko. Ngokuba uya kungeniswa ngubani na, ukuba akubone okuya kubakho emveni kwakhe?
