Isahluko 11

1Kwathi ekhuleka endaweni ethile, esegcinile, omunye wabafundi bakhe wathi kuye: “Nkosi, sifundise ukukhuleka, njengokuba uJohane naye wabafundisa abafundi bakhe.”
2 Wayesethi kubo: “Nxa nikhuleka, anothi: “ ‘Baba wethu osezulwini, malingcweliswe igama lakho; mawufike umbuso wakho; mayenziwe intando yakho emhlabeni njengasezulwini;
3 usiphe isinkwa sethu sezinsuku zonke imihla ngemihla;
4 usithethelele izono zethu, ngokuba nathi sibathethelela bonke abanecala kithi; ungasingenisi ekulingweni, kodwa usikhulule kokubi.’ ”
5 Wathi kubo: “Ngumuphi kini oyakuba nomhlobo, aye kuye phakathi kobusuku, athi kuye: ‘Mhlobo, ngitsheleke izinkwa zibe zintathu,
6 ngokuba kufike kimi umhlobo wami evela ekuhambeni, kepha anginanto engingayibeka phambi kwakhe;’
7 yena-ke ophakathi aphendule athi: ‘Ungangihluphi; sekuvaliwe emnyango, nabantwana bami balele kanye nami; anginakuvuka, ngikunike,’ na?
8 Ngithi kini: Noma engazukuvuka amnike ngokuba engumhlobo wakhe, nokho ngenxa yokukhongisisa kwakhe uyakuvuka amnike konke akudingayo.
9 “Ngithi kini: Celani, niyakuphiwa; funani, niyakufumana; ngqongqothani, niyakuvulelwa.
10 Ngokuba yilowo nalowo ocelayo uyamukeliswa, nofunayo uyafumana, nongqongqothayo uyakuvulelwa.
11 “Ngumuphi kini onguyise, oyakuthi nxa indodana icela inhlanzi, ayinike inyoka esikhundleni senhlanzi;
12 uma icela iqanda, ayinike ufezela, na?
13 Ngakho-ke uma nina eningababi nikwazi ukubapha abantwana benu izipho ezinhle, kakhulu kangakanani uYihlo osezulwini uzakubapha abacela kuye uMoya oNgcwele.”
14 Wakhipha idemoni, laliyisimungulu; kwathi seliphumile idemoni, wakhuluma oyisimungulu; abantu bamangala.
15 Kepha abanye kubo bathi: “Ukhipha amademoni ngoBelzebule umbusi wamademoni.”
16 Abanye bemlinga bafuna kuye isibonakaliso esivela ezulwini.
17 Kepha yena eyazi imicabango yabo wathi kubo: “Yilowo nalowo mbuso owahlukene wodwa uyachitheka, indlu idilike phezu kwendlu.
18 NoSathane, uma ehlukene yedwa, umbuso wakhe uyakuma kanjani na? lokhu nithi ngikhipha amademoni ngoBelzebule.
19 Uma mina ngikhipha amademoni ngoBelzebule, amadodana enu awakhipha ngobani na? Ngalokho-ke wona ayakuba ngabahluleli benu.
20 Kepha uma ngikhipha amademoni ngomunwe kaNkulunkulu, umbuso kaNkulunkulu usufikile phela kini.
21 “Uma isiqhwaga sihlomile, silinda umuzi waso, impahla yaso ihlezi ngokuthula.
22 Kepha nxa onamandla kunaso esisukela, asinqobe, uyasaphuca izikhali zaso zonke ebesizethembile, ayabe impango yaso.
23 “Ongenami umelene nami; ongabuthi nami uyahlakaza.
24 “Nxa umoya ongcolileyo ephumile kumuntu, uyadabula izindawo ezomileyo efuna ukuphumula; engakufumani uthi: ‘Ngizakubuyela endlini yami engaphuma kuyo.’
25 Uyafika-ke, ayifumane ishaneliwe, ihlotshisiwe.
26 Khona abesehamba, azithathele abanye omoya abayisikhombisa ababi kunaye, bangene bahlale lapho, ukugcina kwalowo muntu kube kubi kunokwakuqala.”
27 Kwathi esakhuluma lokhu, owesifazane othile esixukwini waphakamisa izwi, wathi kuye: “Sibusisiwe isisu esakuthwalayo namabele owawancelayo.”
28 Kepha yena wathi: “Yebo, kodwa kakhulu babusisiwe abalizwa izwi likaNkulunkulu, balilondoloze.”
29 Sekubuthana kuye izixuku, waqala ukukhuluma, wathi: “Lesi sizukulwane siyisizukulwane esibi; sifuna isibonakaliso, kepha asiyikunikwa sibonakaliso, kuphela isibonakaliso sikaJona.
30 Ngokuba njengalokho uJona waba yisibonakaliso kwabaseNineve, iNdodana yomuntu iyakuba njalo kulesi sizukulwane.
31 Inkosikazi yaseningizimu iyakusukuma ekwahlulelweni kanye namadoda alesi sizukulwane, iwalahle; ngokuba yavela emikhawulweni yomhlaba izakuzwa ukuhlakanipha kukaSolomoni; bhekani, lapha kukhona okukhulu kunoSolomoni.
32 Amadoda aseNineve ayakusukuma ekwahlulelweni kanye nalesi sizukulwane, asilahle; ngokuba aphenduka ngokushumayela kukaJona; bhekani, lapha kukhona okukhulu kunoJona.
33 “Akakho othi esokhela isibani, asibeke esitha nangaphansi kwesitsha, kepha usifaka othini ukuba abangenayo babone ukukhanya.
34 Isibani somzimba siyiso lakho; nxa iso lakho liphilile, umzimba wakho wonke ungukukhanya; kepha nxa lilibi, umzimba wakho ungubumnyama.
35 Ngakho qaphela ukuba ukukhanya okukuwe kungabi ngubumnyama.
36 Njalo-ke uma umzimba wakho wonke ungukukhanya ungenandawo emnyama, uyakukhanya wonke njengesibani sikukhanyisa ngokukhanya kwaso.”
37 Esakhuluma, umFarisi wammema ukuba adle naye; wangena, wahlala ekudleni.
38 UmFarisi wamangala ebona ukuthi kaqalanga ngokuhlamba engakadli.
39 Yayisithi iNkosi kuye: “Manje-ke nina baFarisi nihlambulula ingaphandle lenkezo nesitsha, kepha ingaphakathi lenu ligcwele ukuphanga nokubi.
40 Ziwula, yena owalenza ingaphandle akalenzanga nengaphakathi na?
41 Kepha yiphani okungaphakathi kube yisiphiwo sabampofu, bhekani-ke, kobe kuhlambulukile konke kini.
42 “Kodwa maye kinina baFarisi, ngokuba nithela okweshumi kwesinkuntshane, nokwentshungu, nokwemifino yonke, ninganaki ukulunga nokumthanda uNkulunkulu! Benimelwe ukwenza lokhu, ningakuyeki nalokho.
43 “Maye kinina baFarisi, ngokuba nithanda izihlalo eziphambili emasinagogeni nokubingelelwa ezigcawini zokuthengelana!
44 “Maye kinina, ngokuba nifana namathuna angasabonakaliyo, nabantu abahamba ngaphezu kwawo bengawazi!”
45 Wayesephendula omunye wezazimthetho, wathi kuye: “Mfundisi, ngokusho lokho uyasijivaza nathi.”
46 Kepha wathi: “Maye nakinina zazimthetho, ngokuba nithwesa abantu imithwalo ethwaleka kalukhuni! Nina-ke uqobo lwenu aniyithinti leyo mithwalo nangowodwa weminwe yenu.
47 “Maye kinina, ngokuba niyawakha amathuna abaprofethi, kanti oyihlo bababulala!
48 Ngalokho ningofakazi, nivuma imisebenzi yawoyihlo; ngokuba bona bababulala, nina-ke niyawakha amathuna abo.
49 Ngenxa yalokho ukuhlakanipha kukaNkulunkulu kwathi: ‘Ngiyakuthumela kubo abaprofethi nabaphostoli; abanye bayakubabulala, abanye babazingele,’
50 ukuze kubizwe kulesi sizukulwane igazi labaprofethi bonke elachithwa kwasekusekelweni komhlaba,
51 kusukela egazini lika-Abela kuze kufike egazini likaZakariya owabulawa phakathi kwe-altare nethempeli. Yebo, ngithi kini: Lizakubizwa kulesi sizukulwane.
52 “Maye kinina zazimthetho, ngokuba nisisusile isihluthulelo sokwazi! Nina uqobo lwenu aningenanga, nabangenayo nabavimbela.”
53 Kuthe ephuma lapho, ababhali nabaFarisi baqala ukumzonda kabi nokumbuzisisa ngokuninginingi,
54 bemqamekela ukuba babambe into ephuma emlonyeni wakhe.
