1 Musani ukuba ngabafundisi abaninzi, bazalwana bam, nisazi nje ukuba siya kwamkela olona lukhulu ugwebo.
2 Kuba siyakhubeka kaninzi sonke. Ukuba umntu akakhubeki zwini, lowo uyindoda egqibeleleyo, enako ukuwubamba ngomkhala nawo umzimba uphela.
3 Yabona, sifaka imikhala emilonyeni yamahashe, ukuba asithambele, siwajike umzimba wawo uphela.
4 Yabona, nayo imikhombe, imikhulu kangaka nje, iqhutywa nje yimimoya enamandla, ijikwa ngomthi wokujika omncinanana, iye apho sukuba umlawuli angxamele ukuba ingaya ngakhona.
5 Ngokunjalo nalo ulwimi, lulilungu elincinanana nje, luyagwagwisa kakhulu. Yabona ke, umlilo omncinane utshisa ihlathi elikhulu.
6 Nolwimi olu ngumlilo, lihlabathi elizele kukungalungisi; lunjalo ulwimi ukuhlala phakathi kwamalungu ethu. Lona luyawudyobha umzimba uphela, luvuthisa intenda yobomi; lona ke luvuthiswa sisihogo somlilo.
7 Kuba zonke iimvelo zezinto ezizitho zine, kwanezeentaka, nezezinambuzane, kwanezezinto eziselwandle, ziyadanjiswa, kanjalo sezikhe zadanjiswa yimvelo eyiyeyabantu;

9 Ngalo siyambonga uThixo uYise, nangalo siyabaqalekisa abantu abenziwe ngokomfanekiselo kaThixo.

13 Ngubani na olumkileyo, owaziyo kakuhle phakathi kwenu? Makayibonise imisebenzi yakhe ngehambo entle, enobulali bobulumko.
14 Ke, ukuba ninomona okrakra neyelenqe entliziyweni yenu, musani ukuyiqhayisela nokuyixoka inyaniso.
15 Obo bulumko asibubo obuhla phezulu; bobasemhlabeni, bobemvelo, bobeedemon.
16 Kuba apho kukhoyo umona neyelenqe, kubakho isiphithiphithi nemicimbi emibi yonke.
