1 Kuba siyazi ukuba, xa ithe yachithwa indlu yethu esemhlabeni, engulo mnquba, sinesakhiwo esiphuma kuThixo, indlu yona emazulwini, engenakwenziwa ngazandla, engunaphakade.
2 Kuba kulo siyancwina, silangazelela ukwambatha, saleke indlu yethu yasemazulwini;
3 ukuba siya kufunyanwa sambethe okunene, singeze.
4 Kuba kwathina aba bakulo mnquba siyancwina sisindwa, kungengakuba sithanda ukuhlutywa; kungokuba sithanda ukwambathiswa saleke, ukuze okunokufa kufincwe bubomi.
5 Ke kaloku lo usisebenzele kwaloo nto nguThixo, osinike nokusinika isinyaniso sakhe uMoya.
6 Ngoko ke sihlala somelele, sisazi ukuba, sikowethu nje emzimbeni, sikude kowethu eNkosini
7 (kuba sihamba ngokholo, asihambi ngakubona);
8 somelele ke, sikholisiwe nokukholiswa kanye kukuba kude nekhaya lethu elisemzimbeni, sibekho kwikhaya lethu eliseNkosini.
9 Kungoko sizondelela ukuthi, nokuba sisekhaya, nokuba sikude nekhaya, sibe ngabakholekileyo kuyo.
10 Kuba thina aba sonke simelwe kukuthi sibonakalaliswe phambi kwesihlalo sokugweba sikaKristu, ukuze elowo azuziswe okwenziwe ngomzimba, ngoko akwenzileyo, nokuba kokulungileyo, nokuba kokubi.
11 Sikwazi njalo ke ukoyikeka kweNkosi, sizamela ukuba beyiseke abantu; sibonakalalisiwe ke kuThixo, ndiyathemba ke ukuba nakuzo izazela zenu sibonakalalisiwe.
12 Kuba asibuyi siziyaleze kuni; sininika ithuba lokuzingca ngathi; ukuze nibe nalo ilizwi ngakwabo bazingcayo ngobuso, bengazingci ngantliziyo.
13 Kuba, nokuba siyageza, kungenxa kaThixo; nokuba sinengqondo ephilileyo, kungenxa yenu.
14 Kuba lusifingile nje uthando lukaKristu, sigqibe kwelokuthi, ukuba ufele bonke emnye, ngoko bafile bonke abo;
15 wabafela ke bonke, ukuze abo badla ubomi bangabi sazidlela ubomi, babudlele owafayo wavuka ngenxa yabo.
16 Ngoko ke thina, sisusela kweli xesha, asisazi namnye ngokwenyama; nokuba ke besimazi uKristu ngokwenyama, kungoku asisamazi ngokwenyama.
17 Ngoko ke, ukuba ubani ukuKristu, usisidalwa esitsha; izinto ezindala zidlule; bonani ke, zisuke zaba ntsha izinto zonke zakhe.
18 Zonke izinto ke ziphuma kuThixo, owasixolelanisa naye ngokwakhe ngoYesu Kristu, wasinika ulungiselelo loxolelaniso;
19 olu ke lokokuba uThixo waye ekuKristu, elixolelanisa naye ngokwakhe ihlabathi, engazibaleli kubo iziphoso zabo, walimisa kuthi ilizwi loxolelaniso.
20 Sizizigidimi ke ngoko ngenxa kaKristu, ngokungathi uThixo uniyala ngathi; siyanikhunga ngenxa kaKristu, manixolelaniswe naye uThixo;
21 kuba lowo ungazani nasono, wamenza isono ngenxa yethu, ukuze thina sibe bubulungisa bukaThixo kuye.
