Isahluko 2

1 Ngakho lahlani ububi bonke, nobuqili bonke, nokuzenzisa, nomhawu, nokuhleba konke;
2 njengezingane ezisand' ukuzalwa langazelelani ubisi olungokomoya olungenakonakala, ukuze nikhule ngalo kube ngukusindiswa,
3 uma seninambithile nezwa ukuthi iNkosi imnene.
4 Sondelani kuyo, iyitshe eliphilileyo, elinqatshwe ngabantu, kepha kuNkulunkulu likhethekile, liyigugu,
5 nakhiwe njengamatshe aphilileyo, nibe yindlu yokomoya, ubupristi obungcwele, ninikele ngemihlatshelo yokomoya eyamukelekayo kuNkulunkulu ngaye uJesu Kristu.
6 Ngokuba kukhona embhalweni ukuthi: “Bhekani, ngibeka eSiyoni itshe legumbi elikhethekile, liyigugu; okholwa yilo akasoze ajabhiswa.”
7 Ngakho kini enikholwayo liyigugu; kepha kwabangakholwayo itshe abalinqabayo abakhi yilona elaba yinhloko yegumbi,
8 netshe lokuqhuzula, nedwala lokukhubekisa; baqhuzuka bengalaleli izwi, okuyikhona bekumiselweyo;
9 kepha nina niluhlanga olukhethiweyo, ubupristi obobukhosi, isizwe esingcwele, abantu abazuziweyo, ukuze nishumayele ubukhosi balowo owanibiza niphume ebumnyameni, ningene ekukhanyeni kwakhe okumangalisayo;
10 ekade naningesiso isizwe, kepha manje niyisizwe sikaNkulunkulu, enaningahawukelwanga, kepha manje nihawukelwe.
11 Bathandekayo, nginincenga njengabafokazi nezihambi ukuba nidede ezinkanukweni zenyama ezilwa nomphefumulo,
12 nibe nenkambo enhle phakathi kwabezizwe, ukuze kuthi lapho benihleba ngokungathi ningabenzi bokubi, ngokubona imisebenzi yenu emihle badumise uNkulunkulu ngosuku lokuhanjelwa.
13 Thobelani izimiso zonke zabantu ngenxa yeNkosi, nokuba kuyinkosi njengokuba ingomkhulu,
14 nokuba kungababusi njengokuba bethunywa yiyo, ukuze bajezise abenza okubi, babonge abenza okuhle,
15 ngokuba injalo intando kaNkulunkulu ukuba ngokwenza okuhle nithulise ukungazi kwabantu abayiziwula
16 njengabakhululekileyo, kodwa kungabi njengabenza ukukhululeka kube yisigubuzelo sokubi kepha njengezinceku zikaNkulunkulu.
17 Baziseni bonke, nithande abazalwane; mesabeni uNkulunkulu, niyazise inkosi.
18 Nina zinceku, thobelani amakhosi ngokwesaba konke, kungabi ngamahle navileyo kuphela kodwa nayizixhwanguxhwangu.
19 Ngokuba kuyabongeka lokho, uma umuntu ngenxa kanembeza ngakuNkulunkulu ethwala izinsizi, ehlushwa ngokungafanele.
20 Ngokuba kuludumo luni, uma nibekezela nishaywa lapho nonile na? Kepha uma nibekezela lapho nenze okuhle nihlushwa, lokho kuyabongeka kuNkulunkulu.
21 Ngokuba nabizelwa khona lokho, ngokuba uKristu wahlushwa ngenxa yenu, enishiyela isibonelo sokuba nilandele ezinyathelweni zakhe.
22 “Ongenzanga isono, akufunyanwanga nankohliso emlonyeni wakhe,”
23 owathi ethukwa, akaphindisanga athuke; ehlushwa akasongelanga kepha wakunikela kuye owahlulela ngokulunga;
24 yena owathwala izono zethu emzimbeni wakhe emthini, ukuze kuthi sesifile ezonweni siphile ekulungeni, oyena imivimbo yakhe naphulukiswa ngayo;
25 ngokuba beninjengezimvu ezidukileyo, kodwa manje seniphendukele kuMalusi noMbonisi wemiphefumulo yenu.
