1 Ehlani, maGalati aswele ukuqonda! Ngubani na oninyangileyo, ukuba ningayithambeli nje inyaniso, ebethe nje phambi kwamehlo enu uYesu Kristu wabhalwa, wabhegezwa phakathi kwenu, ebethelelwe emnqamlezweni?
2 Ndithanda ukukha ndiqonde kuni le ndawo yodwa: Namamkela uMoya emisebenzini yomthetho, namamkela ezindabeni zokholo, kusini na?
3 Ninje na ukuswela ukuqonda? Nakuba niqale kuMoya, ngoku nigqibela kwinyama na?
4 Izinto ezinzima kangaka nafumana naziva na? ukuba kanti benifumana nisenza.
5 Lowo ngoko uniphayo uMoya, usebenza imisebenzi yamandla kuni, ukwenza oko ngokwasemisebenzini yomthetho, ukwenza ngokwasezindabeni zokholo, kusini na?
6 njengokuba uAbraham wakholwayo nguThixo, kwaza oko kwabalelwa ebulungiseni kuye.
7 Yazini ngoko ukuba abaselukholweni, ngabo abo abangoonyana baka-Abraham.
8 Isibhalo, sibona ke ngenxa engaphambili ukuba uThixo uyazigwebela iintlanga ngokwaselukholweni, sazishumayela ngenxa engaphambili iindaba ezilungileyo kuAbraham, sisithi, Ziya kusikelelelwa kuwe zonke iintlanga.
9 Ngoko ke abaselukholweni bayasikelelwa ndawonye noAbraham okholwayo.
10 Kuba bonke abangabasemisebenzini yomthetho, baphantsi kwesiqalekiso; kuba kubhaliwe kwathiwa, Baqalekisiwe bonke abangahlaliyo ezintweni zonke ezibhaliweyo encwadini yomthetho, ukuba bazenze.
11 Okokuba ke akukho namnye ugwetyelwayo ngomthetho kuye uThixo, kuyabonakala; ngokuba lowo ulilungisa, uya kudla ubomi obuphuma elukholweni.
12 Wona ke umthetho asingowaselukholweni; uthi, umntu owazenzayo ezo zinto uya kudla ubomi ngazo.
13 UKristu wasithenga, wasikhulula esiqalekisweni somthetho, ngokwenziwa isiqalekiso ngenxa yethu (kuba kubhaliwe kwathiwa, Uqalekisiwe wonke umntu oxhonywe emthini);
14 ukuze intsikelelo ka-Abraham ibe sezintlangeni ngoKristu Yesu, ukuze idinga loMoya silamkele ngalo ukholo.
15 Bazalwana, ndithetha ngokwabantu: kwanowomntu umnqophiso ozinzisiweyo, akukho namnye uwutshitshisayo, athi mhlawumbi ongeze kuwo.
16 Enziwa ke kuye uAbraham amadinga, nakuyo imbewu yakhe. Akathi, nakuzo iimbewu, ngathi uthetha ezininzi; usuka ngathi uthetha nye, athi, Nakuyo imbewu yakho: nguKristu ke lowo.
17 Ukutsho ke ndithi, Umnqophiso ozinzisiweyo ngenxa engaphambili nguThixo, usingisele kuKristu, awunakuphangwa igunya ngumthetho, owabakhoyo emva kweminyaka engamakhulu omane anamanci mathathu, ukuze ulibhangise idinga elo.
18 Kuba ilifa elo, ukuba liphuma emthethweni, loba alisaphumi edingeni; ke yena uThixo umbabale uAbraham ngedinga.
19 Uyintoni na ngoko umthetho? Walekelwa ngenxa yezigqitho, ukude ifike imbewu leyo yayibekwe ngedinga; wamiswa ngezithunywa zezulu, sisandla somlamleli.
20 Ke umlamleli akamnye; uThixo ke yena mnye.
21 Umthetho ngoko uchasene na namadinga kaThixo? Nakanye! Kuba, ukuba bekuwiswe umthetho onako ukudlisa ubomi, kuhleliwe nje, ngebuphume emthethweni lowo ubulungisa.
22 Ke sona isibhalo sisuke sazivalela ndawonye izinto zonke phantsi kwesono, ukuze idinga eliphuma ekukholweni kuYesu Kristu linikwe abakholwayo.
23 Ngaphambi ke kokufika kokholo, sasilindwa, siphantsi komthetho, sivalelwe ndawonye kude kufike ukholo olu, lube luza kutyhilwa.
24 Ngoko ke umthetho waba ngosikhaphela kuKristu, ukuze sigwetyelwe ngokwaselukholweni.
25 Lwakuba lufikile ke ukholo, asibi saba phantsi kwamkhapheli.
26 Kuba nina nonke ningoonyana bakaThixo ngako ukukholwa, nikuKristu Yesu;
27 kuba nina nonke, nabhaptizelwayo kuKristu, namambatha uKristu.
28 Akusekho mYuda namGrike; akusekho khoboka nakhululekileyo; akusekho ndoda nankazana; kuba nina nonke nimntu mnye, nikuKristu Yesu.
29 Ukuba ke nina ningabakaKristu, niyimbewu ka-Abraham ngoko, neendlalifa ngokwedinga.
