Isahluko 28

1 Bakuba besindile, baqala ukuqonda ukuba isiqhithi eso kuthiwa yiMelita.
2 Amabharbhari ke lawo asenzela ububele obungahlali busihla; kuba aphemba umlilo, asamkela sonke ngenxa yemvula esifikeleyo, nangenxa yokubanda.
3 Ke kaloku, akubon’ ukuba uPawulos utheze inyanda yeentsasa, wayibeka phezu komlilo, kwaphuma inyoka ebushushwini obo, yanamathela esandleni sakhe.
4 Athe ke amabharbhari, akusibona isilo eso silengalenga esandleni sakhe, athetha odwa athi, Okwenene lo mntu ungumbulali; nakuba esindile elwandle, impindezelo ayivumi ukuba adle ubomi.
5 Yena ngoko wasivuthululela emlilweni isilo eso, akeva buhlungu noko.
6 Ke bona babelinde ukuba uza kudumba, mhlawumbi athi qwaka, afe; bakulinda futhi ke, bakubona engahliwa nto imbi, bajika bathi unguthixo.
7 Ke kaloku, kuloo mmandla bekukho imihlaba yomntu omkhulu wesiqithi, ogama linguPubliyo; owasamkela ngobubele, wasenza undwendwe lwakhe iintsuku zantathu.
8 Kwathi ke, uyise kaPubliyo walala phantsi, ebanjwe yicesina nokuxaxaza igazi; awathi uPawulos, engene kuye, wathandaza; wabeka izandla phezu kwakhe, wamphilisa.
9 Kuthe ke kwakwenzeka oko, bathi nabanye ababenezifo esiqithini apho, beza baphiliswa; bathi bona basenzela iimbeko ezininzi;
10 bathi, xa sindulukayo, basithwesa ngezinto esizisweleyo.
11 Ke kaloku, emva kweenyanga ezintathu, sanduluka ngomkhombe wakwa-Alesandire, obudlulise ubusika esiqithini eso, onembasa yamaWele.
12 Sathi sakufika eSirakusi, sahlala khona iintsuku zantathu.
13 Sisuka khona, sajikeleza safika eRegiyo; emva kosuku olunye, kwakubon’ ukuba umoya wasezantsi uvukile, safika ngowesibini umhla ePotiyoli;
14 safumana abazalwana apho, basibongoza ukuba sihlale nabo iintsuku zibe sixhenxe; seza ngokunjalo eRoma.
15 Bathi abazalwana, bakusiva, baphuma khona apho, beza kusihlangabeza, bada beza eApiyoforo, naseTritabherne; athe uPawulos, akubabona, wabulela kuThixo, womelezeka.
16 Ke kaloku, xeshikweni sifikileyo eRoma, umthetheli-khulu wabanikela ababanjwa kumthetheli-mkhosi; ke yena uPawulos wavunyelwa ukuba ahlale yedwa, nesoldati elimgcinayo.
17 Kwathi ke, emva kweentsuku ezintathu, uPawulos wabizela ndawonye abaziintloko bamaYuda; abathe bakubon’ ukuba ke babuthelene, wathi kubo, Madoda, bazalwana, mna ndithe, ndingenzanga nto ichasene nabantu namasiko akowethu, ndesuka eYerusalem ndingumbanjwa, ndanikelwa ezandleni zamaRoma.
18 Athe wona akundincina, afuna ukundikhulula, ngenxa yokuba kungekho tyala lakufa ndinalo.
19 Athe ke amaYuda akuphika, ndanyanzeleka ukuba ndibhenele kuKesare; kungengakuba ndibe ndinento yokulumangalela ngayo uhlanga lwakowethu.
20 Ndinibongoze ke ngenxa yeso sizathu ukuba nize, ndinibone, ndithethe nani; kuba kungenxa yethemba lakwaSirayeli endinxitywe lo mxokelelwane.
21 Wona ke athi kuye, Thina asizuzanga zincwadi zithetha ngawe, zivele kwelakwaYuda; kananjalo akufikanga bani wakubazalwana, owabika, wathetha nto ikhohlakeleyo ngawe.
22 Singa ke singeva kuwe izinto ozicingayo; kuba okunene ngalo elo hlelo kuyazeka kuthi, ukuba lichasiwe ezindaweni zonke.
23 Ke kaloku, bakummisela imini, kweza kuye into eninzi endlwini abehlala kuyo, wabatyhilela, ebaqononondisa kunene, ubukumkani bukaThixo; kananjalo ebebeyisela kokungoYesu, ethabatha emthethweni kaMoses kwanakubaprofeti, eqala kusasa ahlwise.
24 Yaye inxenye iseyiseka ngaloo mazwi athethwa nguye, yaye inxenye ingakholwa.
25 Bakuba ke bengavumelani, banduluka, akubon’ ukuba uPawulos uthethe zwi-nye, wathi, Watyapha uMoya oyiNgcwele ukuthetha ngoIsaya umprofeti koobawo bethu,
26 esithi, Hamba uye kwaba bantu, uthi, Ukuva oku niya kuva, ningakhe niqonde; Nithi nibona nje, nibone, ningakhe niqiqe.
27 Kuba intliziyo yaba bantu ithe fithi kukutyeba; Beva nzima ngeendlebe, Bewacima namehlo abo; Hleze babone ngamehlo, Beve ngeendlebe, Baqonde ngeentliziyo, Bajike, ndibaphilise.
28 Makwazeke ngoko kuni, ukuba usindiso lukaThixo luthunyelwe kuzo iintlanga; ziya kuluva zona.
29 Akuba etshilo, emka amaYuda, enembuzwano enkulu phakathi kwawo.
30 Ke kaloku, uPawulos wahlala iminyaka emibini iphela kweyakhe indlu ayiqeshileyo, wabamkela bonke ababesiza kuye,
31 ebuvakalisa ubukumkani bukaThixo, efundisa iindawo ezingeNkosi uYesu Kristu ngako konke ukungafihlisi, engalelwa bani.
