1Emva kwalokho wamuka e-Athene, wafika eKorinte.
2 Wafumana khona umJuda othile ogama lakhe lingu-Akwila, wasePontu ngokuzalwa, owayesanda kufika ephuma e-Italiya, enoPrisila umkakhe, ngenxa yesimemezelo sikaKlawudiyu sokuba bonke abaJuda bamuke eRoma; weza kubo;
3 lokhu wayemsebenzi munye nabo, wahlala nabo, basebenza. Ngokuba umsebenzi wabo kwakungukuthunga amatende.
4 Washumayela esinagogeni ngamasabatha onke, wazuza abaJuda namaGreki.
5 Kepha sebefikile oSila noThimothewu behla eMakedoniya, uPawulu wakhathalela izwi, wafakaza kubaJuda ukuthi uJesu unguKristu.
6 Kwathi benqaba, behlambalaza, wathintitha izingubo zakhe, wathi kubo: “Igazi lenu malibe phezu kwamakhanda enu; mina anginacala; kusukela manje ngizakuya kwabezizwe.”
7 Wasuka lapho, weza endlini yomuntu ogama lakhe linguThithiyu Justu, okhonza uNkulunkulu; indlu yakhe yayiseceleni kwesinagoge.
8 Kepha uKrispu umphathi wesinagoge wakholwa yiNkosi kanye nendlu yakhe yonke, nabaningi babaseKorinte balalela, bakholwa, babhapathizwa.
9 INkosi yayisithi kuPawulu ngombono ebusuku: “Ungesabi, kepha khuluma, ungathuli,
10 ngokuba mina nginawe, akakho ozakukusukela, akulimaze, ngokuba nginabantu abaningi kulo muzi.”
11 Wahlala khona umnyaka nezinyanga eziyisithupha efundisa izwi likaNkulunkulu phakathi kwabo.
12 Kwathi uGaliyu engumbusi wase-Akhaya, abaJuda bamvukela uPawulu nganhliziyonye, bamyisa phambi kwesihlalo sokwahlulela,
13 bathi: “Lo muntu uphendukisa abantu ukuba bakhonze uNkulunkulu ngokuphambene nomthetho.”
14 Khona uPawulu esezakuvula umlomo, uGaliyu wathi kubaJuda: “O nina baJuda, uma bekuyicala noma ubugebengu obubi, bekufanele nginibekezelele;
15 kodwa uma kungukuphikisana ngamazwi, nangamagama, nangomthetho wakini, ziboneleni nina; mina angithandi ukuba ngumahluleli walezo zinto.”
16 Wayesebaxosha esihlalweni sokwahlulela.
17 Khona bonke bambamba uSostene umphathi wesinagoge, bamshaya phambi kwesihlalo sokwahlulela; kodwa uGaliyu akaze anaka lutho lwalokho.
18 Kepha uPawulu esehlale khona izinsuku eziningi, wavalelisa kubazalwane, wamuka ngomkhumbi, waya eSiriya kanye noPrisila no-Akwila, esegundile ikhanda lakhe eKenikreya; ngokuba wayezibophe ngesifungo.
19 Wehlela e-Efesu, wabashiya khona; kepha yena wangena esinagogeni, washumayela kubaJuda.
20 Kwathi bemncenga ukuba ahlale khona isikhathi esidana, akaze avuma,
21 kepha wavalelisa wathi: “Ngizakubuyela futhi kini, uma uNkulunkulu evuma,” wayesesuka e-Efesu ngomkhumbi;
22 esefikile eKesariya wakhuphuka wabingelela ibandla; wehlela e-Antiyokiya.
23 Esehlale khona isikhathi esithile wamuka wadabula izwe laseGalathiya nelaseFrigiya ngokulandelana, eqinisa bonke abafundi.
24 UmJuda othile ogama lakhe lingu-Apholo, wase-Aleksandriya ngokuzalwa, indoda efundileyo nenamandla emibhalweni, wehlela e-Efesu.
25 Yena wayefundisiwe indlela yeNkosi; evutha emoyeni wakhuluma, wafundisa ngesineke izindaba eziqondene noJesu, azi ukubhapathiza kukaJohane kuphela;
26 yena waqala ukushumayela ngesibindi esinagogeni. Kwathi ukuba bamuzwe o-Akwila noPrisila, bamthatha bamchasisela indlela kaNkulunkulu ngesineke esikhulu.
27 Esethanda ukudlulela e-Akhaya, abazalwane balobela abafundi bebayala ukuba bamamukele; esefikile wabasiza kakhulu abakholwayo ngomusa,
28 ngokuba waphikisa abaJuda ngamandla phambi kwabantu, ekhomba ngemibhalo ukuthi uJesu unguKristu.
