1 Kwakukhona e-Antiyokiya ebandleni lakhona abaprofethi nabafundisi: oBarnaba, noSimeyoni othiwa uNigeri, noLukiyu waseKhurene, noManayeni owayondliwe kanye noHerode umtetrarki, noSawulu.
2 Kwathi bekhonza iNkosi, bezila, uMoya oNgcwele wathi: “Ngahlukaniseleni oBarnaba noSawulu ukuba baye emsebenzini engibabizele wona.”
3 Khona bazila ukudla bakhuleka, babeka izandla phezu kwabo, babamukisa.
4 Bona-ke bethunyiwe nguMoya oNgcwele behlela eSelukiya; basuka lapho, baya eKhupro ngomkhumbi.
5 Ekufikeni kwabo eSalami bashumayela izwi likaNkulunkulu emasinagogeni abaJuda; babe noJohane eyisikhonzi sabo.
6 Sebedabule isiqhingi sonke, baze bafika ePhafu, bafumana indoda ethile eyisanusi nomprofethi wamanga, umJuda, ogama lakhe linguBarjesu,
7 owayekhona kumbusi wezwe uSergiyu Pawulu, umuntu onengqondo enhle. Yena wabiza oBarnaba noSawulu, wafuna ukuzwa izwi likaNkulunkulu.
8 Kodwa u-Eluma, isanusi, ngokuba linjalo igama lakhe ngokuhunyushwa, wamelana nabo, wafuna ukuphambukisa umbusi ekukholweni.
9 Kepha uSawulu osethiwa uPawulu, egcwele uMoya oNgcwele wamgqolozela,
10 wathi: “O wena ogcwele inkohliso yonke nobubi bonke, ndodana kaSathane, sitha sokulunga konke, awuyikuyeka ukuziphambukisa izindlela eziqondileyo zeNkosi na?
11 Bheka, isandla seNkosi siphezu kwakho manje. Uzakuba yimpumputhe, kube yisikhathi ungaliboni ilanga.” Kwase kumfikela khona lapho ukufiphala nobumnyama, wahamba efuna abazakumhola ngesandla.
12 Khona umbusi esebona okwenzekileyo wakholwa, emangaliswa ngesifundiso seNkosi.
13 UPawulu nababe naye bamuka ePhafu ngomkhumbi, bafika ePherge lasePhamfiliya; kepha uJohane wahlukana nabo, wabuyela eJerusalema.
14 Bona ekumukeni kwabo ePherge baya e-Antiyokiya lasePhisidiya, bangena esinagogeni ngosuku lwesabatha, bahlala phansi.
15 Sekufundiwe umthetho nabaprofethi, abaphathi besinagoge bathumela kubo, bathi: “Madoda, bazalwane, uma ninezwi lokuyala abantu, khulumani.”
16 Wayesesukuma uPawulu, waqhweba ngesandla, wathi: “Madoda akwa-Israyeli, nani enesaba uNkulunkulu, lalelani:
17 UNkulunkulu walesi sizwe sakwa-Israyeli wabakhetha obaba, wabaphakamisa abantu bengabafokazi ezweni laseGibithe; wabakhipha kulo ngengalo ephakemeyo.
18 Wababekezelela ehlane kungathi iminyaka engamashumi amane.
19 Wachitha izizwe eziyisikhombisa ezweni laseKhanani, wababela izwe lazo libe yifa;
20 kwadlula kungathi iminyaka engamakhulu amane namashumi ayisihlanu. Emva kwalokho wabanika abahluleli kwaze kwaba nguSamuweli umprofethi.
21 Kusukela lapho bacela inkosi; uNkulunkulu wabanika uSawule indodana kaKisi, umuntu wesizwe sakwaBenjamini, iminyaka engamashumi amane.
22 Esemkhiphile wabavusela uDavide abe yinkosi, afakaza ngaye ukuthi: ‘Ngimfumene uDavide kaJesayi, umuntu ongowenhliziyo yami, oyakwenza konke engikuthandayo.’
23 Enzalweni yakhe uNkulunkulu walethela u-Israyeli uMsindisi uJesu njengokwethembisa kwakhe;
24 engakafiki yena uJohane wayeseshumayele kuso sonke isizwe sakwa-Israyeli umbhapathizo wokuphenduka.
25 Esegcina ukuhamba kwakhe uJohane wathi: ‘Lokhu enithi ngiyikho angisikho mina. Kodwa bhekani, uyeza emva kwami engingafanele ukukhumula isicathulo sezinyawo zakhe.’
26 “Madoda, bazalwane, madodana ohlanga luka-Abrahama, nabaphakathi kwenu abamesabayo uNkulunkulu, izwi lale nsindiso lithunyelwe kithi.
27 Ngokuba abakhileyo eJerusalema nababusi babo abamazanga yena, namazwi abaprofethi afundwa amasabatha ngamasabatha bawagcwalisa ngokumlahla;
28 nakuba bengafumananga icala lokufa kuye, nokho bacela kuPilatu ukuba abulawe.
29 Kwathi sebefeze konke okwakulotshiwe ngaye, bamehlisa emthini, bambeka ethuneni.
30 Kepha uNkulunkulu wamvusa kwabafileyo.
31 Wabonwa izinsuku eziningi yibo ababekhuphukele naye eJerusalema bevela eGalile, asebengofakazi bakhe kubantu manje.
32 “Nathi sinishumayeza ivangeli lesithembiso esenziwa kobaba
33 ukuthi uNkulunkulu usigcwalisile sona kubantwana bethu ngokumvusa uJesu, njengokuba kulotshiwe futhi kulo ihubo lesibili ukuthi: “ ‘Wena uyiNdodana yami, namuhla ngikuzele.’
34 “Maqondana nokumvusa kwakhe kwabafileyo ukuba engasayikubuyela ekuboleni wakhuluma kanje, wathi: “ ‘Ngizakuninika okungcwele nokuthembekileyo kukaDavide.’
35 “Ngakho nakwenye indawo uthi: “ ‘Awuyikunika oNgcwele wakho abone ukubola.’
36 “Ngokuba uDavide esekhonzile icebo likaNkulunkulu esizukulwaneni sakhe, walala ubuthongo, wabekwa koyise, wabona ukubola.
37 Kepha yena amvusayo uNkulunkulu akakubonanga ukubola.
38 Ngakho-ke makwazeke kini madoda, bazalwane, ukuthi ngalowo kumenyezelwa kini ukuthethelelwa kwezono, nakukho konke ebeningenakulungisiswa kukho ngomthetho kaMose
39 yilowo nalowo okholwayo uyakulungisiswa ngaye.
40 Ngakho qaphelani, funa nehlelwe ngokwakhulunywa ngabaprofethi ukuthi:
41 “ ‘Bhekani nina zideleli, nimangale, ninyamalale, ngokuba mina ngisebenza umsebenzi emihleni yenu, umsebenzi eningayikukholwa yiwo, nakuba umuntu enilandisa ngawo.’ ”
42 Kwathi ekuphumeni kwabo, babacela ukuba lawo mazwi akhulunywe kubo nangesabatha elizayo.
43 Khona sebehlakazekile abesinagoge, abaningi babaJuda namaproselite aqotho balandela oPawulu noBarnaba abakhuluma nabo, bebancenga ukuba bahlale emseni kaNkulunkulu.
44 Ngesabatha elilandelayo kwabuthana kucishe umuzi wonke ukuzwa izwi likaNkulunkulu.
45 Kepha abaJuda bebona izixuku bagcwala umhawu, bakuphika okwakukhulunywa nguPawulu behlambalaza.
46 Khona oPawulu noBarnaba bakhuluma ngesibindi, bathi: “Bekudingeka ukuba izwi likaNkulunkulu likhulunywe kini kuqala; kepha lokhu nilinqaba, nizisho nina nithi anifanele ukuphila okuphakade, bhekani, sesiphendukela kwabezizwe.
47 Ngokuba iNkosi isiyalezile kanjalo ukuthi: “ ‘Ngikubekile ube ngukukhanya kwabezizwe, ube yinsindiso kuze kube semkhawulweni womhlaba.’ ”
48 Kwathi abezizwe bekuzwa lokho, bathokoza, balidumisa izwi leNkosi; bakholwa bonke ababemiselwe ukuphila okuphakade.
49 Izwi leNkosi lahanjiswa kulo izwe lonke.
50 Kepha abaJuda bavusa abesifazane abaqotho abanesithunzi nezikhulu zomuzi, bavusela oPawulu noBarnaba ukuzingelwa, babaxosha emikhawulweni yabo.
51 Bona-ke babavuthululela uthuli lwezinyawo zabo, beza e-Ikoniyu.
52 Abafundi bagcwala intokozo noMoya oNgcwele.
