Isahluko 11

1 Kepha abaphostoli nabazalwane abaseJudiya bezwa ukuthi nabezizwe balamukele izwi likaNkulunkulu.
2 Kwathi ukuba uPetru enyukele eJerusalema, abokusoka baphikisana naye,
3 bathi: “Ungene kubantu abangasokile, wadla nabo.”
4 Kepha uPetru wabathathela konke ngokulandelana, wathi:
5 “Mina bengisemzini waseJopha ngikhuleka; ngehlelwa yisiyezi, ngabona umbono, kwehla isitsha esithile sinjengendwangu enkulu, yehliswa ezulwini ngamachopho amane, yaze yafika kimi.
6 Kwathi ukuba ngiyigqolozele, ngabhekisisa, ngabona izilwane zomhlaba ezinezinyawo ezine, nezilo zasendle, nezinwabuzelayo, nezinyoni zezulu.
7 Ngezwa izwi lithi kimi: ‘Sukuma, Petru; hlaba, udle.’
8 “Kepha ngathi: ‘Qha, Nkosi, ngokuba okuyichilo nokungcolileyo akuzange kungene emlonyeni wami.’
9 “Khona izwi elivela ezulwini laphendula ngokwesibili, lathi: ‘Lokho akuhlambululileyo uNkulunkulu, ungasho wena ukuthi kuyichilo.’
10 Lokho-ke kwenzeka kathathu, konke kwabuye kwenyuselwa ezulwini.
11 “Bhekani, ngaso leso sikhathi kwase kumi amadoda amathathu phambi kwendlu esasikuyo; ayethunyelwe kimi, evela eKesariya.
12 UMoya wayesethi kimi angihambe nabo ngingangabazi ngalutho. Bangiphelekezela labo bazalwane abayisithupha, saya sangena endlini yaleyo ndoda.
13 Yasibikela-ke ukuthi yayibonile ingelosi imi endlini yayo, ithi: ‘Thumela eJopha, ulande uSimoni othiwa uPetru
14 ozakukhuluma kuwe amazwi ozakusindiswa ngawo, wena nendlu yakho yonke.’
15 “Ngathi ngisaqala ukukhuluma, uMoya oNgcwele wehlela phezu kwabo njengakithi ekuqaleni.
16 Ngalikhumbula-ke izwi leNkosi, njengalokho yathi: ‘UJohane wabhapathiza ngamanzi, kodwa nina nizakubhapathizwa ngoMoya oNgcwele.’
17 Ngakho uma uNkulunkulu ebanikile bona isipho njengathi esakholwa yiNkosi uJesu Kristu, ngingubani mina ukuba ngivimbele uNkulunkulu na?”
18 Bathi ukuzwa lokho, bathula, badumisa uNkulunkulu, bathi: “Kanti uNkulunkulu unike nabezizwe ukuphendukela ekuphileni.”
19 Kepha labo ababehlakazekile ngokuhlupheka okwaqala ngoStefanu bahamba, baze bafika eFenike, naseKhupro, nase-Antiyokiya, bengalikhulumi izwi koyedwa, kubaJuda kuphela.
20 Kodwa kwakukhona abanye kubo, amadoda aseKhupro naseKhurene, abathi befika e-Antiyokiya, bakhuluma nakumaGreki, beshumayela ivangeli ngeNkosi uJesu.
21 Isandla seNkosi sasinabo; kwakholwa abaningi kakhulu, baphendukela eNkosini.
22 Kepha kwezwakala izwi ngabo ezindlebeni zebandla laseJerusalema; lase lithuma uBarnaba ukuba ahambe afike e-Antiyokiya;
23 wathi ukuba afike, abone umusa kaNkulunkulu, wathokoza, wabayala bonke ukuba banamathele eNkosini ngokuzimisela inhliziyo.
24 Ngokuba wayeyindoda enhle, egcwele uMoya oNgcwele nokukholwa; kwenezelwa eNkosini abantu abaningi.
25 UBarnaba wayeseya eTarsu ukuba afune uSawulu;
26 kwathi esemfumene, wamyisa e-Antiyokiya. Kwase kwenzeka ukuba umnyaka wonke bahlangane ebandleni, befundisa abantu abaningi. Kwaqala e-Antiyokiya ukuba abafundi bathiwe amaKristu.
27 Ngalezo zinsuku kwehlela e-Antiyokiya abaprofethi bevela eJerusalema.
28 Kwasukuma omunye kubo ogama lakhe lingu-Agabu, wakhomba ngoMoya ukuthi kuzakuba khona indlala enzima ezweni lonke; yaba khona emihleni kaKlawudiyu.
29 Abafundi base bezimisela ukuba yilowo nalowo kubo athumele njengamandla akhe okokusiza abazalwane abakhe eJudiya.
30 Bakwenza-ke, bakuthumela emalungeni ngesandla sikaBarnaba noSawulu.
