1 Yintoni na ngoko esiya kuthi, uAbraham, ubawo wethu, ufumene yona ngokwenyama?
2 Kuba uAbraham, ukuba wayegwetyelwe ngokwasemisebenzini, ange eneqhayiya; akanalo ke phambi koThixo.
3 Kuba sithini na isibhalo? Sithi ke, Wakholwa uAbraham kuThixo, kwaza oko kwabalelwa kuye ebulungiseni.
4 Ke kaloku, kulowo usebenzayo, umvuzo awubalelwa ngokwaselubabalweni; ubalelwa ngokwasekubangweni.
5 Ke kulowo ungasebenziyo, uthi akholwe kuye omgwebelayo lowo ungahloneli Thixo, ukholo lwakhe lubalelwa ebulungiseni;
6 kwanjengokuba noDavide eluncoma uyolo lwaloo mntu, uThixo ambalela ubulungisa kungekho misebenzi,
7 esithi, Banoyolo abazigqitho zixolelweyo, Abazono zigutyungelweyo;
8 Inoyolo indoda eya kuthi iNkosi ingakhe ibalele sono kuyo.
9 Olo luyolo ngoko lunconywayo lulolwabolwaluko bodwa na? Asilulo olwabo bangebolwaluko nabo na? Kuba sithi, kuAbraham ukholo lwabalelwa ebulungiseni.
10 Lwathiwani na ke ngoko ukubalelwa kuye? Esekwalukeni, esekungalukini, sini na? Engekhona ekwalukeni; esekungalukini.

14 Kuba abo basemthethweni, ukuba ngabo iindlalifa, ukholo lungaba lwenziwe into engento, nedinga lingaba liphuthisiwe;
15 kuba umthetho usebenza ingqumbo. Ke apho kungekho mthetho, akukho sigqitho.
16 Ngenxa yoku, ilifa lelaselukholweni; ukuze libe ngokobabalo; ukuze idinga liqiniseke kuyo yonke imbewu; lingabi kweyasemthethweni yodwa, libe nakweyaselukholweni luka-Abraham, ongubawo wethu sonke
17 (njengokuba kubhaliwe kwathiwa, Ndikumisile ukuba ube nguyise weentlanga ezininzi), phambi koThixo awakholwayo kuye, obadlisa ubomi abafileyo, azibize izinto ezingekhoyo, zinge zikho.
18 Owakholwayo ngethemba, kungekho nethemba eli, ukuze abe nguyise weentlanga ezininzi, ngokoko kwathethwayo: Iya kuba njalo imbewu yakho.
19 Wathi, engebuthathaka nje ngokholo, akondela emzimbeni wakhe, obuselufile (emayela ekhulwini leminyaka ezelwe), kwanokufa kwesizalo sikaSara;
20 owathi, ngokusingisele kwidinga likaThixo, akathandabuza ngokungakholwa; wesuka womelela ngokholo, ezukisa uThixo,
21 eqinisekile ukuba oko akumise ngedinga, unako nokukwenza.
22 Kungoko kwabalelwa nokubalelwa ebulungiseni kuye.
23 Ke kaloku, ukuba kwabalelwa kuye, akubhalwanga ngenxa yakhe yedwa;
24 kwabhalwa nangenxa yethu, thina kwakuza kubalelwa kuthi, thina bakholwayo kulowo wamvusayo uYesu iNkosi yethu kwabafileyo;
25 owanikelwa ngenxa yeziphoso zethu, waza wabuya wavuswa ngenxa yokugwetyelwa kwethu.
