1 Masithini na ngoko? Masihlale sihleli na esonweni, ukuze ubabalo lwande?
2 Nakanye! Thina safayo nje kwisono, singathini na ukuba sahlala kuso?
3 Anazi na ukuba thina sonke, sabhaptizelwayo kuKristu Yesu, sabhaptizelwa ekufeni kwakhe?
4 Ngoko ke sangcwatywa naye ngokubhaptizelwa ekufeni; ukuze, njengokuba uKristu wavuswayo kwabafileyo ngalo uzuko loYise, sithi ngokunjalo nathi sihambe sinobomi obutsha.
5 Kuba xa similiselwe kuye ngentsobi yokufa kwakhe, somiliselwa kuye nangeyokuvuka kwakhe;
6 sikwazi nje oku, ukuba umntu wethu omdala wabethelelwa emnqamlezweni kunye naye, ukuze umzimba wesono uphuthiswe, size singabi sasikhonza isono;
7 kuba owafayo ugwetyelwe, wakhululwa kuso isono.
8 Ukuba ke safa kunye noKristu, siyakholwa ukuba sodla ubomi kwakunye naye;
9 sisazi ukuba uKristu, evusiwe nje kwabafileyo, akabi safa; ukufa akusamphathi ngabukhosi.
10 Kuba ukufa awakufayo, wakufa kwisono kwaba kanye; ubomi ke abudlayo, ubudlela kuThixo.
11 Ngokunjalo nani zibaleleni ekuthini, ningabafileyo okunene kwisono; kodwa ningabadla ubomi kuThixo, nikuKristu Yesu, iNkosi yethu.
12 Ngoko isono masingalawuli emzimbeni wenu onokufa, ukuze nisilulamele ngokwenza iinkanuko zawo.
13 Kanjalo amalungu enu maningawanikeli kuso isono, ukuba abe ziintonga zentswela-bulungisa; manizinikele ngokwenu kuThixo, ngokwabaphile babengabafileyo, niwanikele kuThixo amalungu enu, ukuba abe ziintonga zobulungisa.
14 Kuba isono asiyi kuniphatha ngabukhosi; kuba aniphantsi komthetho, niphantsi kobabalo.
15 Kuthiweni na ngoko? Sone na, kuba singephantsi kwamthetho, siphantsi kobabalo? Nakanye!
16 Anazi na ukuba lowo nizinikela kuye ukuba ngabakhonzi bokumlulamela, ningabakhonzi ngoku kulowo nimlulamelayo: nokokuba ningabesono, nisingise ekufeni, nokokuba ningabolulamo, nisingise ebulungiseni?
17 Makubulelwe ke kuThixo, ukuba nithe, beningabakhonzi besono, nawululamela ngokwentliziyo umfuziselo wemfundiso enanikelwayo kuwo;
18 nathi, nakuba nikhululwe ke kuso isono, nakhonziswa kubo ubulungisa.
19 Ndithetha ngokwabantu, ngenxa yobulwelwe benyama yenu; kuba, njengoko nawanikelayo amalungu enu ukuba abe ngabakhonzi bako ukungcola nokuchasa umthetho, ukuba nichase umthetho: ngokunjalo kalokunje, wanikeleni amalungu enu ukuba abe ngabakhonzi kubo ubulungisa, ukuba ningcwaliseke.
20 Kuba, oko nibe ningabakhonzi besono, beningabakhululekileyo kubo ubulungisa.
21 Naye ninasiqhamo sini na ke ngelo xesha, ngezi zinto nineentloni ngazo ngoku? Kuba isiphelo sazo kukufa.
22 Kaloku ke, nikhululwe nje kuso isono, naza nakhonziswa kuThixo, ninaso isiqhamo senu sokuba ningcwaliseke; isiphelo ke sibe bubomi obungunaphakade.
23 Kuba umvuzo wesono kukufa; ke sona isibabalo sikaThixo bubomi obungunaphakade, kuKristu Yesu iNkosi yethu.
