Isahluko 5

1Emva kwalokho kwakukhona umkhosi wabaJuda; uJesu wakhuphukela eJerusalema.
2 Kukhona-ke eJerusalema ngasesangweni lezimvu ichibi elithiwa ngesiHeberu iBethesda, linemipheme eyisihlanu.
3 Kwakulele kuyo abagulayo abaningi kakhulu, izimpumputhe, nezinyonga, nabashwabeneyo, belindele ukuzanyazanyiswa kwamanzi.
4 Ngokuba ingelosi yayehla izikhathi ngezikhathi, izamazamise amanzi, kuthi lowo ongene kuqala emva kokuzanyazanyiswa kwamanzi asinde esifweni sakhe, noma enasifo sini.
5 Kwakukhona lapho umuntu othile owayesegule iminyaka engamashumi amathathu nesishiyagalombili.
6 UJesu embona elele, azi ukuthi usenesikhathi eside enjalo, wathi kuye: “Uyathanda ukusinda na?”
7 Ogulayo wamphendula wathi: “Nkosi, anginamuntu wokungifaka echibini, nxa amanzi ezanyazanyiswa; kuthi ngiseza, kwehle omunye phambi kwami.”
8 UJesu wathi kuye: “Sukuma, uthabathe uhlaka lwakho, uhambe.”
9 Wayesephila masinyane lowo muntu, wathabatha uhlaka lwakhe, wahamba. Kwakuyisabatha ngalolo suku.
10 Khona base bethi abaJuda kophilisiweyo: “Yisabatha, akuvunyiwe uthwale uhlaka.”
11 Wabaphendula wathi: “Ongiphilisileyo nguyena othe kimi: ‘Thabatha uhlaka lwakho, uhambe.’ ”
12 Bambuza bathi: “Ngubani lowo muntu othe kuwe: ‘Thabatha uhlaka lwakho uhambe,’ na?”
13 Kepha ophilisiweyo wayengazi ukuthi ungubani, ngokuba uJesu wayemukile lapho, kukhona isixuku kuleyo ndawo.
14 Emva kwalokho uJesu wamfumana ethempelini, wathi kuye: “Bheka, uphilisiwe; ungabe usona, funa wehlelwe ngokubi kunalokho.”
15 Wamuka lowo muntu, watshela abaJuda ukuthi nguJesu omphilisileyo.
16 Ngenxa yalokho abaJuda bamzingela uJesu, ngokuba wakwenza lokho ngesabatha.
17 Kepha wabaphendula wathi: “UBaba usebenza kuze kube manje, nami ngiyasebenza.”
18 Ngalokho-ke abaJuda kwayikhona befuna kakhulu ukumbulala, ngokuba wayengaphulile isabatha kuphela, kodwa wabuye wathi uNkulunkulu unguYise, ezenza olingana noNkulunkulu.
19 Khona uJesu waphendula, wathi kubo: “Ngiqinisile, ngiqinisile ngithi kini: INdodana ingenze lutho ngokwayo, kuphela lokho ebona uYise ekwenza, ngokuba lokho akwenzayo yena, neNdodana iyakwenza kanjalo.
20 Ngokuba uYise uyayithanda iNdodana, uyikhombisa konke akwenzayo yena; woyikhombisa imisebenzi emikhulu kunalena ukuba nimangale.
21 Ngokuba njengalokhu uYise evusa abafileyo, abaphilise, kanjalo neNdodana iyabaphilisa labo ethanda ukubaphilisa.
22 Ngokuba noYise kahluleli muntu; ukunike iNdodana konke ukwahlulela
23 ukuba bonke bazise iNdodana, njengokuba bazisa uYise. Ongayazisi iNdodana kamazisi noYise oyithumileyo.
24 “Ngiqinisile, ngiqinisile ngithi kini: Ozwa izwi lami, akholwe ngongithumileyo, unokuphila okuphakade; akayi ekwahlulelweni, kepha usephumile ekufeni, wangena ekuphileni.
25 Ngiqinisile, ngiqinisile ngithi kini: Isikhathi siyeza, sesikhona namanje, lapho abafileyo beyakulizwa izwi leNdodana kaNkulunkulu; abezwayo bayakuphila.
26 Ngokuba njengalokhu uYise enokuphila ngokwakhe, kanjalo uyiphile neNdodana ibe nokuphila ngokwayo.
27 Uyiphile amandla okwahlulela, ngokuba iyiNdodana yomuntu.
28 “Ningamangali ngalokho, ngokuba isikhathi siyeza, lapho bonke abasemathuneni beyakulizwa izwi layo,
29 abenze ukulunga baphumele ekuvukeni kokuphila, abenze okubi ekuvukeni kokulahlwa.
30 Mina ngingenze lutho ngokwami; ngahlulela njengalokho engikuzwayo; ukwahlulela kwami kulungile, ngokuba ngingafuni eyami intando kepha intando yongithumileyo.
31 “Uma ngizifakazela mina, ubufakazi bami abuqinisile.
32 Ngomunye ofakaza ngami; ngiyazi ukuthi ubufakazi angifakazela ngabo buqinisile.
33 “Nina nithumele kuJohane, walifakazela iqiniso.
34 Kepha mina angibamukeli ubufakazi kumuntu; kodwa ngisho lokhu ukuba nisindiswe.
35 Yena wayeyisibani esivuthayo nesikhanyayo; nina-ke benithanda ukuthokoza isikhashana ekukhanyeni kwakhe.
36 “Kepha nginabo ubufakazi obukhulu kunobukaJohane, ngokuba imisebenzi uBaba anginike yona ukuba ngiyifeze, yona le misebenzi engiyenzayo, iyangifakazela ukuthi uBaba ungithumile.
37 NoBaba ongithumileyo ufakazile ngami. Anizange nizwe izwi lakhe, anisibonanga isimo sakhe.
38 Nezwi lakhe aninalo elihleziyo phakathi kwenu, ngokuba amthumileyo yena lowo anikholwa nguye.
39 Nihlola imibhalo, ngokuba nithi ninokuphila okuphakade kuyo; yiyona efakaza ngami.
40 Kepha anivumi ukuza kimi ukuba nibe nokuphila.
41 “Mina angamukeli udumo kubantu.
42 Kepha ngiyanazi nina ukuthi aninalo uthando lukaNkulunkulu phakathi kwenu.
43 Ngize egameni likaBaba, aningamukeli; uma kuza omunye ngelakhe igama, niyakumamukela yena.
44 Ningakholwa kanjani nina enidumisana nodwa, ningalufuni udumo oluvela kuNkulunkulu yedwa, na?
45 “Ningacabangi ukuthi ngiyakunimangalela kuBaba; ukhona onimangalelayo, uMose enithemba kuye.
46 Ngokuba uma benikholwa nguMose, beniyakukholwa yimina, ngokuba yena waloba ngami.
47 Kodwa uma ningakholwa yimibhalo yakhe, niyakukholwa kanjani ngamazwi ami na?”
