1 Nani unidlise ubomi, nifile nje ziziphoso na zizono;
2 enanifudula nihamba kuzo ngokwesimo seli hlabathi, ngokomphathi wegunya lesibhakabhaka, womoya lo usebenzayo ngoku kubo abangevayo;
3 esasifudula nathi sonke sihleli phakathi kwabo ezinkanukweni zenyama yethu, sisenza ukuthanda kwenyama nokwengcinga, saye ngemvelo sikwangabantwana bengqumbo, njengabanye abo.
4 Ke uThixo, esisityebi nje ngenceba, uthe ngenxa yothando lwakhe olukhulu, awasithanda ngalo,
5 thina sifile nje ziziphoso, wasidlisa ubomi ndawonye noKristu (nisindiswe ngokubabalwa),
6 wasivusa naye, wasihlalisa naye kwezasemazulwini iindawo, sikuKristu Yesu;
7 ukuze ubutyebi obuncamisileyo bobabalo lwakhe abubonakalalise emaphakadeni azayo, ngokusenzela ububele ngoKristu Yesu.
8 Kuba nisindiswe ngokubabalwa nangalo ukholo; nako oko kungaphumi kuni, kusisipho sikaThixo;
9 akuphumi misebenzini, hleze kubekho bani uqhayisayo.
10 Kuba thina singumsebenzi wakhe, sidalelwe kuKristu Yesu, ukuze senze imisebenzi elungileyo, awayilungisayo uThixo ngenxa engaphambili, ukuze sihambe kuyo.
11 Ngoko ndithi, Khumbulani ukuba nina, enibe nifudule niziintlanga ngokwenyama, kusithiwa ningabangalukileyo, ngabo kuthiwa ngabolwaluko olwenziwe ngezandla enyameni:
12 okokuba ngelo xesha nibe ningenaKristu, ningazani nawo umzi wakwaSirayeli, ningabasemzini kuyo iminqophiso yalo idinga, ningenathemba, ningenaThixo ehlabathini.
13 Ke ngoku ngoKristu Yesu, nina, enibe nifudula nikude, nithe naba kufuphi ngalo igazi likaKristu.
14 Kuba nguye oluxolo lwethu, yena uthe izinto zombini wazenza zaba nye, waluchitha ke udonga lothango oluphakathi, ubumpi ke obo,
15 akuba ewubhangisile, esenyameni yakhe, umyalelo wemithetho esemimiselweni; ukuze abo babini abadalele kuye ngokwakhe, babe mntu mnye, mtsha, esenza ke uxolo;
16 nokuze abaxolelanise noThixo abo babini, babe mzimba mnye ngawo umnqamlezo, ebubulalele kuwo ubumpi obo.
17 Weza ke washumayela iindaba ezilungileyo zoxolo kuni abo bakude, nakwabakufuphi;
18 ngokuba kungaye ukungeniswa kwethu sobabini, siMoya mnye kuye uYise.
19 Ngoko ke anisengabasemzini nabaphambukeli; ningamakhaya kubo abangcwele, ningabendlu kaThixo,
20 nakhelwe phezu kwelitye lesiseko sabapostile nabaprofeti, inguYesu Kristu ngokwakhe ilitye lembombo;
21 esithi kuye sonke isakhiwo, sihlangene kakuhle, sikhule, sibe yitempile engcwele eNkosini;
22 enithi nani nakhelwe ndawonye kuye, ukuze nibe yindawo yokuhlala kaThixo ngaye uMoya.
