1 Wathi ke uAgripa kuPawulos, Uvunyelwe ukuba uziphendulele. Wandula uPawulos waziphendulela, esolule isandla, wathi:
2 Ndiva kamnandi, kumkani Agripa, ndiza kuziphendulela nje phambi kwakho namhla, ngazo zonke izinto endimangalelwa ngazo ngamaYuda;
3 ngokukodwa ekubeni usazana nawo onke amasiko neembuzwano zamaYuda. Kungoko ndiyakuthandaza ukuba undive, undinyamezele.
4 Ukuhlala kwam ke kwasebuncinaneni bam, okwabakho kwasekuqalekeni phakathi kohlanga lwakowethu eYerusalem, ayakwazi onke amaYuda;
5 endazi ngenxa engaphambili (ukuba athe athanda ukungqina), okokuba, ngelona licokisekileyo ihlelo lonqulo lwakowethu, ndahlala ndingumFarisi.
6 Nangoku ndimi ndimangalelwa ngenxa yethemba ledinga elabekwa nguThixo kobawo;
7 ezithembe ukufika kulo izizwe zakowethu ezilishumi elinazibini, zimkhonza nje uThixo ngenyameko ubusuku nemini; ekungenxa yelo themba endimangalelwayo ngamaYuda, kumkani Agripa.
8 Yini na ukuba nithi, yinto eningenakukholwa yiyo, ukuba uThixo uyabavusa abafileyo?
9 Mna okunene ke bendiba ngelam, ndimelwe kukwenza izinto ezininzi ezichasene negama likaYesu waseNazarete.
10 Endakwenzayo ke oko eYerusalem; nento eninzi yabangcwele ndayitshixela ezintolongweni, ndakuba ndamkele igunya kubabingeleli abakhulu; ndaza, bakuba besikwa, ndavuma.
11 Nakuzo zonke izindlu zesikhungu ndibe ndibohlwaya futhi, ndibanyanzela ukuba banyelise; ndathi, ndibagezela ngokuncamisileyo, ndabatshutshisa, ndada ndesa kwimizi engaphandle.
12 Kunjalonje ke, kwathi, xa ndiyayo eDamasko, ndinegunya nemvume kubabingeleli abakhulu,
13 emini enkulu endleleni, kumkani, ndabona ukukhanya kuvela ezulwini, okungaphezu kokuqaqamba kwelanga, kundibanekela ngeenxa zonke, nabo babehamba nam.
14 Sithe ke sakubon’ ukuba siwile sonke emhlabeni, ndeva izwi lithetha nam ngentetho yesiHebhere, lisithi, Sawule, Sawule, unditshutshiselani na? wenzakala, ukhaba iimviko nje.
15 Ndathi ke mna, Ungubani na, Nkosi? Yathi ke yona, Mna ndinguYesu omtshutshisayo.
16 Vuka, ume ngeenyawo; kuba ndibonakele kuwe ngenxa yoku, ukuba ndikumise ube ngumkhonzi nengqina lezi zinto uzibonileyo, nendiya kubonakala kuwe ngazo;
17 ndikunyothula ebantwini nasezintlangeni, endikuthuma kuzo ngokunje;
18 ukuba uvule amehlo abo, ukuze babuye ebumnyameni, beze ebumhlotsheni; babuye egunyeni likaSathana, beze kuThixo; ukuze bamkele uxolelo lwezono, nelifa phakathi kwabangcwalisiweyo, ngokukholwa kum.
19 Ekuthe koko, kumkani Agripa, andaba nguye ongawululameliyo umbono wasemazulwini;
20 ndesuka ndababikela abaseDamasko kuqala, nabaseYerusalem, nakulo lonke ilizwe lakwaYuda, nakuzo iintlanga, ukuba baguquke babuyele kuThixo, benze imisebenzi efanele inguquko.
21 Ngenxa yezi zinto amaYuda andibamba etempileni, azamela ukundibulala.
22 Ngoko ndizuze uncedo kuThixo nje, ndimisile kude kube yile mini, ndingqina komncinane nakomkhulu, ndingathethi nanye into ngaphandle kwezo, bathi abaprofeti noMoses ziza kubakho;
23 zokuba uKristu ubeza kuva iintlungu, nokuba ubeza kuthi, engowokuqala eluvukweni lwabafileyo, azise ukukhanya ebantwini nasezintlangeni.
24 Ke kaloku, akubon’ ukuba uyaziphendulela ngokunjalo, uFesto wathi ngezwi elikhulu, Uyageza, Pawulos; imfundo eninzi iyakugezisa.
25 Wathi ke yena, Andigezi, Festo odume kunene; ndiphimisela amazwi enyaniso nawengqondo ephilileyo.
26 Kuba ezo ndawo uyazazi kakuhle ukumkani, endithetha kuye ngokungafihlisiyo; kuba ndikholosekile kukuba akukho nanye yezi zinto ifihlakeleyo kuye; kuba le nto ibingenzelwanga egumbini.
27 Uyakholwa na, kumkani Agripa, ngabaprofeti? Ndiyazi ukuba uyakholwa.
28 Wathi ke uAgripa kuPawulos, Ngokuncinane undeyisela ukuba ndibe ngumKristu.
29 Wathi ke uPawulos, Ndithandaza kuThixo, ukuba ingabi nguwe wedwa, ibe ngabo bonke abandivayo namhlanje, abaya kuthi, nangokuncinane nangokukhulu, babe njengam nje, ngaphandle kwezi ntambo.
30 Akuba etshilo, besuka ukumkani, nerhuluneli, noBhernike, kwanababehleli nabo;
31 beshenxile, bathetha bodwa bathi, Lo mntu akenze nanye into elingene ukufa neentambo.
32 Wathi ke uAgripa kuFesto, Lo mntu ange enokukhululwa, ukuba ubengabhenele kuKesare.
