1 UPawulos noTimoti, abakhonzi bakaYesu Kristu, babhalela bonke abangcwele abakuKristu Yesu, abaseFilipi, ndawonye nabaveleli nabalungiseleli;
2 bathi, Makube lubabalo kuni, noxolo, oluvela kuThixo uBawo wethu, neNkosi yethu uYesu Kristu.
3 Ndihlala ndibulela kuye uThixo wam, ekunikhumbuleni kwam konke
4 (ekukhungeni kwam konke ndikhunga ngenxa yenu nonke, ndivuyile),
5 ngenxa yobudlelane benu obubhekisele kuzo iindaba ezilungileyo, kususela kwimini yokuqala kude kube ngoku;
6 ekubeni ndikholose ngayo le nto, yokuba lowo wawuqalayo ngaphakathi kwenu umsebenzi olungileyo, wowufeza, ide ibe yiloo mini kaYesu Kristu;
7 njengokuba ndilungisa ukucinga oko ngani nonke, ngenxa yokuba nikum entliziyweni, nithe, nasezintanjeni zam, nasekuziphenduleleni kwam, nasekuziqiniseni kwam iindaba ezilungileyo, naba ngamadlelana nam ngobabalo olu, nina nonke.
8 Kuba uThixo ulingqina lam lokuba kukhulu ukunilangazelela kwam nonke, ndineemfesane zikaYesu Kristu.
9 Nako oku ndiya kuthandazela, ukuba uthando lwenu lube kukhona luphuphuma ngokuphuphuma ukwazi okukhulu, nako konke ukuqonda,
10 ukuze nizicikide izinto eziziincamisa, ukuze nibe nokusulungeka, ningabi nasiwo, nide nise kwimini kaKristu;
11 nizele ziziqhamo zobulungisa ezingoYesu Kristu, nikhangelise ekuzukiseni nasekudumiseni uThixo.
12 Ke kaloku ndinga ningazi, bazalwana, ukuba izinto ezindihleleyo, zibethe kwakukhona zihambayo iindaba ezilungileyo;
13 ngokokude iintambo zam ezi zibonakale kuyo yonke indlu yomkhosi nakwabanye bonke, ukuba zikuKristu;
14 baze abona bazalwana baninzi bathi, beseNkosini, bekholose ngeentambo zam ezi, babe kukhona benobuganga bokulithetha ilizwi, bengenakoyika.
15 Okunene abathile bamvakalisa uKristu ngomona neenkani, abanye ke bamvakalisa ngokokuzithandela.
16 Abeyelenqe abo bamazisa uKristu ngokungenyulu, beba baya kongezelela imbandezelo kwiintambo zam;
17 ke aba, benziwa luthando, bamazisa wKristu besazi ukuba ndimiselwe ukuziphendulela iindaba ezilungileyo.
18 Ibe yini ke? Noko kunjalo, ngeendlela zonke, nokuba kungokunyhwalaza, nokuba kungenyaniso, kwaziswa uKristu. Ndiyavuya kuko oko, ndaye ndisaya kuvuya.
19 Kuba ndiyazi ukuba oku kuya kuphumelela ekusindisweni kwam, ngako ukundikhungela kwenu, nangoncedo loMoya kaYesu Kristu;
20 kuye ngokulangazelela nangokuthemba kwam, ukuba andiyi kudaniswa nganto; uya kusuka ngako konke ukungafihlisi, njengokwamaxesha onke, athi nangoku enziwe mkhulu uKristu emzimbeni wam, nokuba na kungobomi, nokuba kungokufa.
21 Kuba kum mna, ukudla ubomi kunguKristu, ukufa kuyinzuzo.
22 Ke ukuba ukudla ubomi ndisenyameni kusisiqhamo somsebenzi kum oko, into ke endonyula yona andiyazi.
23 Kuba ndixinekile phakathi kwezinto ezimbini; ndinawo umnqweno wokunga ndinganduluka, ndiye kuba noKristu; kuba kokona kulungileyo kakhulu oko;
24 kodwa ukuhlala ndihleli ndisenyameni, yeyona nto ifunekayo ngenxa yenu.
25 Kananjalo, ndikholose ngoko nje, ndiyazi ukuba ndiya kuhlala ndihlale, ndihleli nani nonke, ukuze nihambele phambili, nivuyiswe lukholo;
26 ukuze iqhayiya lenu kuKristu Yesu ngam liye lisanda ngokwanda, ngako ukubuya ndibekho kuni.
27 Kodwa ke ukuhlala kwenu makube kokuzifaneleyo iindaba ezilungileyo zikaKristu, ukuze, nokuba ndifikile ndanibona, nokuba andifikanga, ndizive iindaba zenu, ukuba nimi moyeni mnye, ngamphefumlo mnye, nilwela inkolo yeendaba ezilungileyo,
28 ningothuswa nantweni-nye ngabo bachasayo; into ke leyo engumbonakalaliso wentshabalalo okunene kubo, kodwa ingumbonakalaliso wosindiso kuni, kube ke oko kuvela kuThixo.
29 Ngokuba nababalwa ukuthi, ngenxa kaKristu, ninganeli kukholwa kuye; nababalwa nokuva ubunzima ngenxa yakhe,
30 ninawo umzamo onjengalowo nawubonayo kum, nangoku niwuvayo ukuba ukho kum.
