2 ubhalela uTimoti, umntwana wakhe kanye ngokwaselukholweni; uthi, Makube lubabalo, inceba, uxolo, oluvela kuThixo uBawo, noKristu Yesu iNkosi yethu.
3 Njengoko ndakuyalayo ukuba uhlale e-Efese, ndakuba mna ndisiya kwelaseMakedoni, ndenjenjalo ukukuyala nangoku, ukuze ubathethele abanye, bangafundisi mfundiso yimbi;
4 kananjalo banganyamekeli zintsomi namilibo yakuzalwa engaphele ndawo, izinto ezo ezibanga iimbuzwano, zingahambisi lona ulwakho lukaThixo olungokholo.
5 Ke intsingiselo yoyalo iluthando oluphuma entliziyweni ehlambulukileyo, nasesazeleni esilungileyo, naselukholweni olungahanahanisiyo;
6 abathe abathile, beziphosile ezo nto, baphambukela ekuthetheni okungento yanto;
7 bethanda ukuba ngabafundisi bomthetho, phofu bengaziqiqi izinto abazithethayo, kwanezo bazingqinayo.
8 Siyazi ke ukuba umthetho mhle, ukuba umntu uthi awuphathe ngokomthetho;
9 ngokwazi oku, ukuba umthetho lo awuwiselwe lungisa, uwiselwe ke abachasene nomthetho, nabangenakululama, abangahloneli Thixo, nabangaboni, abangengcwele, nabahlambeli, ababethiyise nababethi-nina, izigwinta,
10 abenzi bombulo, amadoda alalanayo, amasela abantu, amaxoki, amafunga-buxoki, nokuba kukho nto yimbi ichasene nemfundiso ephilileyo;
11 ngokweendaba ezilungileyo zozuko lukaThixo osikelelekileyo, endaphathiswa zona mna.
12 Kananjalo ndinombulelo kowandomelezayo, uKristu Yesu iNkosi yethu, kuba wandibalela ekuthini ndithembekile, endimisela ebulungiselelini;
13 nakuba ngaphambili ndandingumnyelisi, nomtshutshisi, nomphathi kakubi; ndesuka ndenzelwa inceba, ngokuba ndakwenza oko ndingazi, ndisekungakholweni;
14 ke lwanda ngokuncamisileyo ubabalo lweNkosi yethu, lunokholo nothando olukuKristu Yesu.
15 Lithembekile ilizwi eli, lifanelwe kukwamkelwa konke, eli lokuba uKristu Yesu weza ehlabathini ukuba asindise aboni; endingomkhulu kubo mna;
16 noko ke ndesuka ndenzelwa inceba ngenxa yoku, ukuze uYesu Kristu akubonakalalisele kum, mna ungomkhulu, konke ukuzeka kade umsindo, ndibe ngumzekelo kwabo baza kukholwa kuye, base ebomini obungunaphakade.
17 Ke kaloku, kuye uKumkani wawo amaphakade, ongenakonakala, ongenakubonakala, kuThixo olumkileyo yedwa, makubekho imbeko nozuko, kuse emaphakadeni asemaphakadeni. Amen.
18 Olu yalo ndilubeka phambi kwakho, mntwana wam Timoti, ngokweziprofeto ezandulelayo ngawe, ukuze ulwe ngazo ukulwa okuhle,
19 unokholo nesazela esilungileyo, ethe inxenye, isigibile, yaphukelwa ngumkhombe mayelana nokholo;
20 inoHimenayo noAlesandire, endabanikelayo kuSathana, ukuze baqeqeshwe ukuba banganyelisi.
