1 Ke kaloku, ngokubuthwa kwemali yokusiza abangcwele, njengokuba ndawamiselayo amabandla kaThixo akwelaseGalati, yenzani ngokunjalo nani.
2 Ngolokuqala usuku, iiveki ngeeveki, elowo kuni makabeke ekhaya, eqweba, into asukuba esikelelwe ngayo; ukuze kungathi, ndakuba ndifikile, kwandule ukubuthwa imali.
3 Ke ndakuba ndifikile, enisukuba nibacikidile nakholwa ngabo, ndobathuma bona benencwadi, base isipho senu esi eYerusalem.
4 Ke ukuba kuthe kwabonakala ukuba nam ndiye, bohamba kunye nam.
5 Ndiya kuza ke kuni, xa ndithe ndacanda kwelaseMakedoni, kuba ndiya kwanela ukucanda nje kwelaseMakedoni.
6 Ke kuni mhlawumbi ndingathi ndihlale ndidlulise nobusika, ukuze nina nindiphelekelele apho ndisukuba ndisiya khona.
7 Kuba andithandi ukuba ndinibone ngoku ndidlulayo; kodwa ndithemba ukuba ndokha ndihlale kuni ixesha elithile, ukuba iNkosi ithe yavuma.
8 Ndiya kuhlala ke e-Efese kude kubekho ipentekoste;
9 kuba ndivulelwe umnyango omkhulu onamandla, bebaninzi nabachasi.
10 Ke kaloku, ukuba uTimoti uthe wafika, ize nikhangele ukuba angabi nakoyika phakathi kwenu; kuba uyawusebenza umsebenzi weNkosi, kwanjengam,
11 Ize kungabikho bani ngoko umenza into engento. Mphelekeleleni ke nixolile, ukuze eze kum; kuba ndimlindile kunye nabazalwana.
12 Ke kaloku, ngaye nApolo umzalwana, ndamvuselela kakhulu, ukuba eze kuni kunye nabazalwana. Kuye akubangakho kanye ukuthanda ukuza okwakalokunje; woza ke, xa athe wanethuba elilungileyo.
13 Phaphani, elukholweni; yibani ngamadoda; yomelelani.
14 Zonke izinto zenu mazenziwe ninothando.
15 Ke kaloku ndiyanivuselela, bazalwana (niyayazi indlu kaStefana, ukuba iyintlahlela yelaseAkaya, nokuba bazimisele ukulungiselela abangcwele),
16 ukuze nani nibalulamele abanjalo, nabo bonke abasebenzisana nathi emsebenzini, nababulalekayo.
17 Ndiyavuya ke ngokufika kukaStefana noFortunato noAkayiko; ngokuba bakwenzelelele bona ukungabikho kwenu;
18 kuba bawuphumzile umoya wam nowenu. Bazini kakuhle ngoko abanjalo.
19 Ayanibulisa amabandla kaThixo akwelaseAsiya. Bayanibulisa kunene eNkosini uAkwila noPrisila, kunye nebandla elisendlwini yabo.
20 Bayanibulisa abazalwana bonke. Bulisanani ngolwango olungcwele.
21 Umbuliso ungesam isandla, mna Pawulos.
22 Ukuba ubani akayithandi iNkosi uYesu Kristu, makasingelwe phantsi. INkosi iyeza.
23 Ubabalo lweNkosi uYesu Kristu malube nani.
24 Uthando lwam malube nani nonke bakuKristu Yesu. Amen.
