2 Sihlala sibulela kuye uThixo ngenxa yenu nonke; sinikhumbula emithandazweni yethu;
3 singayeki ukuwukhumbula umsebenzi wenu wokholo, nokubulaleka kwenu kothando, nokunyamezela kwenu kokuthemba iNkosi yethu uYesu Kristu, phambi koThixo uBawo wethu;
4 sikwazi, bazalwana bathandiweyo nguThixo, ukunyulwa kwenu.
5 Ngokuba iindaba ezilungileyo zethu azibangakho kuni ngantetho yodwa; zabakho nangamandla, nangoMoya oyiNgcwele, nangenkoloseko enkulu, njengoko naziyo ukuba saba ngabanjani na phakathi kwenu ngenxa yenu.

9 Kuba bona ngokwabo baxela ngathi, ukuba kwakunjani na ukungena kwethu kuni, nokokuba nathini na ukuguqukela kuThixo, niphuma kuzo izithixo, ukuze nikhonze uThixo ophilileyo oyinyaniso,
10 nilinde uNyana wakhe evela emazulwini, awamvusayo kwabafileyo, kwauYesu, osihlangulayo kuyo ingqumbo ezayo.
