4 Nani boyise, musani ukubacaphukisa abantwana benu; bondleleni ekuqeqesheni nasekululekeni kweNkosi.
5 Nina bakhonzi, baveni abaziinkosi zenu ngokwenyama, ninokuzoyikela nokugubha, ningenakumbi ezintliziyweni zenu, ninge niva uKristu ngokwakhe.
6 Ukukhonza kwenu makungabi ngokweliso, ngathi nithomalalisa abantu; makube ngokwabakhonzi bakaKristu, nikwenza ukuthanda kukaThixo ngokwasemphefumlweni,
7 nikhonza ngentumekelelo, kukuyo iNkosi, kungekubo abantu;

9 Nani baziinkosi zabo, yenzani kwaezo zinto kubo, nikuyeke ukusongela; nisazi nje ukuba kwaeyabo neyenu iNkosi isemazulwini, nokuba akukho kukhetha buso kuyo.

12 Ngokuba umzamo wethu asingowokuzamana negazi nenyama; ngowokuzamana nazo izilawuli, nawo amagunya, nazo iziphatha-hlabathi zobumnyama balo eli phakade, nayo imikhosi yomoya abakhohlakeleyo kwezasezulwini iindawo.
13 Ngenxa yoko, qubulani sonke isikrweqe sikaThixo; ukuze nibe nako ukuchasa ngomhla ombi, nithi nikufezile konke, nime nimi.
14 Misani ke ngoko, nibhinqe inyaniso esinqeni senu, ninxibe isigcina-sifuba sobulungisa,
15 nibophe ezinyaweni zenu ulungiselelo lweendaba ezilungileyo zoxolo.
16 Ngaphezu kwezo zinto zonke, qubulani ikhaka lokholo, lona nothi ngalo nibe nako ukuzicima zonke iintolo ezinomlilo zakhe ongendawo.
17 Yamkelani isigcina-ntloko sosindiso, nalo ikrele loMoya, elililizwi likaThixo;
18 ngako konke ukuthandaza nokukhunga, nithandaza amaxesha onke nikuye uMoya; niyiphaphamele loo nto ngako konke ukuzingisa nokukhunga, ngenxa yabo bonke abangcwele;
19 nangenxa yam, ukuba ndiphiwe ilizwi ekuwuvuleni umlomo wam, ndize ndazise ngokungafihlisiyo imfihlelo yeendaba ezi zilungileyo,
20 ekungenxa yazo endisisigidimi esisezintanjeni; ukuze ndingafihlisi ukuthetha kuzo, njengoko ndimelwe kukuthetha ngako.
21 Ke kaloku, ukuze nani nikwazi okukokwam, ukuba ndinjani na, wonazisa konke uTikiko, umzalwana oyintanda, umlungiseleli othembekileyo ngokwaseNkosini;
22 endimthume le nto kuni, ukuze nizazi iindaba zethu, nokuze azithuthuzele iintliziyo zenu.
23 Makube luxolo kubo abazalwana, nothando, ndawonye nokholo oluvela kuThixo uYise, neNkosi yethu uYesu Kristu.
24 Ubabalo malube nabo bonke abayithandayo iNkosi yethu uYesu Kristu ngokungenakonakala. Amen.
