5 Lowo weyisayo uya kuthiwa wambu ngeengubo ezimhlophe. Andisayi kulicima igama lakhe encwadini yobomi; ndiya kulivuma igama lakhe emehlweni kaBawo, naphambi kwezithunywa zakhe zasemazulwini.

9 Yabona, ndinika abesikhungu sikaSathana, abathi bangamaYuda bona, bengengawo, bexoka; yabona, ndiya kubenza beze baqubude phambi kweenyawo zakho, bazi ukuba mna ndikuthandile.
10 Ngokuba waligcina ilizwi lomonde wam, nam ndiya kukugcina, ndikusindise kwilixa lokulingwa, eliza kuza phezu kwelimiweyo liphela, ukulinga abo bemiyo phezu kwehlabathi.
11 Yabona, ndiza kamsinya; kubambe ukuqinise onako, ukuze kungabikho namnye usithabathayo isithsaba sakho.
12 Lowo weyisayo ndiya kumenza intsika etempileni yoThixo wam. Akayi kuba saphuma phandle; ndaye ndiya kulibhalela phezu kwakhe igama loThixo wam, negama lomzi woThixo wam, iYerusalem entsha, ehla emazulwini ivela kuThixo wam, negama lam elitsha.

16 Ngenxa enokuba ke udikidiki, ungabandi, ungeshushu, ndiza kukuhlanza uphume emlonyeni wam.
17 Ngokuba uthi, Ndisisityebi, ndizityebisile, andiswele nto; ube ungazi ukuba uludwayinge, ulusizana, ulihlwempu, uyimfama, uhamba ze;
18 ndiyakucebisa, ukuba uthenge kum igolide evuthiswe emlilweni, ukuze ube nobutyebi; neengubo ezimhlophe, ukuze wambeswe, lingabonakali ihlazo lobuze bakho; nentambiso yamehlo, uthambise amehlo akho, ukuze ubone.
19 Mna, bonke endibathandayo ndiyabohlwaya, ndibaqeqeshe; zondelela ngoko uguquke.
20 Yabona, ndimi emnyango ndinkqonkqoza; ukuba uthe umntu waliva izwi lam, waluvula ucango, ndongena kuye, ndidle naye, naye adle nam.
21 Lowo weyisayo, ndiya kumvumela ukuba ahlale nam etroneni yam, njengokuba nam ndeyisayo, ndaza ndahlala phantsi noBawo etroneni yakhe.
22 Lowo unendlebe, makayive into ayithethayo uMoya kuwo amabandla.
