1 UPawulos, umpostile kaYesu Kristu ngokuthanda kukaThixo, ngokwedinga lobomi obukuKristu Yesu,
2 ubhalela uTimoti, umntwana wakhe oyintanda; uthi, Makube lubabalo, nenceba, noxolo oluvela kuThixo uYise, noKristu Yesu iNkosi yethu.
3 Ndinokubulela kuye uThixo, endamkhonzayo kwakoomawokhulu ndinesazela esihlambulukileyo, ndikukhumbula njengokungapheliyo, ekukhungeni kwam ubusuku nemini;
4 ndilangazelela ukunga ndingakubona, ndizikhumbula nje iinyembezi zakho, ukuze ndizaliswe luvuyo;
5 ndikhunjuzwa nje ukholo olukuwe olungenakuhanahanisa, lona lwahlalayo kuqala kunyokokhulu uLoyisi, nakunyoko uYunike, endinyanisileyo ke ukuthi luhleli nakuwe.
6 Endithi ngenxa yelo thuba ndikukhumbuze, ukuba usikhwezele isipho sokubabalwa kwakho nguThixo, esikhoyo kuwe ngokubekwa kwezandla zam phezu kwakho.
7 Kuba uThixo akasinikanga moya wabugwala; wasinika owamandla, nowothando, nowesidima.
8 Ngoko ke musa ukuba nazintloni ngabo ubungqina beNkosi yethu, nangam, mna mbanjwa wayo; suka uve ububi kunye nam ngenxa yeendaba ezilungileyo, ngokwamandla kaThixo;
9 owasisindisayo, wasibiza ngobizo olungcwele, engenzi ngokwemisebenzi yethu, esenza ngokweyakhe ingqibo, nobabalo, esababalwa ngalo ngoKristu Yesu phambi kwamaxesha aphakade;
10 lwabonakaliswa ke ngoku ngako ukubonakala koMsindisi wethu uYesu Kristu, owakubhangisayo okunene ukufa, kodwa wabukhanyisa ubomi nokungonakali, ngazo iindaba ezilungileyo ezi;
11 endamiselwa zona mna, ndaba ngumvakalisi nompostile nomfundisi weentlanga;
12 endithi kananjalo ngenxa yeli thuba ndive obu bunzima. Noko ke andinazintloni; kuba ndiyamazi endikholiweyo nguye; kanjalo ndithi, ndeyisekile ukuba unako ukuyigcina into endimphathisileyo, ese kuloo mini.
13 Umzekelo wamazwi aphilileyo owawevayo kum, wubambe elukholweni naseluthandweni olukuKristu Yesu.
14 Loo nto intle uyiphathisiweyo, yigcine ngoMoya oyiNgcwele ohleliyo ngaphakathi kwethu.
15 Oku uyakwazi, ukuba bandinikele umva bonke abaseAsiya; abanoFigelo noHermogene.
16 Yanga iNkosi ingayenzela inceba indlu kaOnesiforo; ngokuba kwaba futhi endiphumza, akaba nazintloni nguwo umxokelelwane wam.
17 Wathi akuba eseRoma, wandifuna ngokukhuthala okukhulu, wandifumana.
18 Yanga iNkosi ingamfumanisa inceba eNkosini ngaloo mini. Nguwena waziyo kakuhle oko zingako izinto awalungiselela ngazo e-Efese.

1 Wena ngoko, mntwana wam, yomelela elubabalweni olukuKristu Yesu;
2 uthi nezinto owazivayo kum ngamangqina amaninzi, ezo uzibeke phambi kwabantu abathembekileyo, bona baya kukulingana ukufundisa nabanye.
3 Wena ngoko bunyamezele ububi, njengomphumi-mkhosi olungileyo kaKristu Yesu.
4 Akukho namnye uthi, ephuma umkhosi, azibhijele ngemicimbi yobu bomi; ukuze amkholise lowo umnyulele ukuphuma umkhosi.
5 Nakuba ke ubani esithi azame emdlalweni, akathweswa sithsaba, ukuba akathanga azame ngokomthetho.
6 Umlimi lowo ubulalekayo, umelwe kukwamkela kuqala kwiziqhamo.
7 Ziqiqe izinto endizithethayo; iNkosi yokupha ke ingqondo ezintweni zonke.
8 Mkhumbule uYesu Kristu, engovukileyo kwabafileyo, engowembewu kaDavide, ngokweendaba zam ezilungileyo;
9 endiva ububi ngenxa yazo, kude kuse ezintanjeni, njengomenzi wobubi; ke lona ilizwi likaThixo alibotshiwe.
10 Ngenxa yoko izinto zonke ndiyazinyamezela ngenxa yabo abanyulwa, ukuze nabo bamkele usindiso olukuKristu Yesu, ndawonye nozuko olungunaphakade.
11 Lithembekile ilizwi eli: Kuba xa safa naye, sodla ubomi kwandawonye naye;
12 ukuba siyanyamezela, solawula kwandawonye naye; ukuba siyamkhanyela, naye wosikhanyela;
13 ukuba asithembekile, yena uhlala ethembekile; akanako ukuzikhanyeza.
14 Bakhumbuze ezo zinto, uqononondise emehlweni eNkosi, ukuba kungenziwa mfazwe yamazwi angancedi lutho, kuze kubhukuqeke abaphulaphuli.
15 Kukhuthalele ukuzimisa phambi koThixo ucikidekile, ungumsebenzi ongenazintloni, ulungisa ukulahlula ilizwi lenyaniso.
16 Ke zona iintetho ezingento, ezihlambelayo, zinxweme; kuba ziya kuhambela phambili kokukhona kungahloneli Thixo.
17 Nelizwi labo liya kudla njengesilonda esiqhenqethayo; abanoHimenayo noFileto,
18 abathe bona bayiphosa inyaniso, besithi uvuko seluthe lwakho, kananjalo belubhukuqa ukholo lwenxenye.
19 Noko ke limi, lithe nkqi, ilitye lesiseko likaThixo, linambhalo uthi, INkosi iyabazi abangabayo; nothi, Mabasuke kuko ukungalungisi, bonke abalibizayo igama likaKristu.
20 Ke endlwini enkulu akubikho zitya zagolide nazasilivere zodwa; kubakho nezomthi nezomdongwe. Inxenye ke zezembeko, inxenye azizambeko.
21 Ukuba ngoko umntu uthe wazikhuphulula kwezo zinto, woba sisitya sembeko, singcwalisiwe, simlungele kakuhle umninindlu, silungiselwe wonke umsebenzi olungileyo.
22 Ke zibaleke iinkanuko zobutsha; phuthuma ke ubulungisa, ukholo, uthando, uxolo nabo bayinqulayo iNkosi ngokwasentliziyweni ehlambulukileyo.
23 Yinxweme imibuzwana yobudenge engenangqeqesho, usazi ukuba izala imfazwe.
24 Ke umkhonzi weNkosi akamele kulwa; umele ukuba nokuthantamisa kubantu bonke, enokufundisa, enyamezela ububi,
25 ebaqeqesha ngobulali abo baphikayo; ukuba akangethi na kanti uThixo abaphe inguquko esa ekuyazini inyaniso,
26 babuye baqabuke, baphume esibatheni sakhe uMtyholi, ababanjiselwe ukuthanda kwakhe nguye.

2 livakalise ilizwi; zingisa ukwenjenjalo ngamathuba alungileyo naxakileyo; yohlwaya, khalimela, vuselela, unako konke ukuzeka kade umsindo, nokufundisa.
3 Kuba kuya kubakho ixesha abangayi kuyinyamezela imfundiso ephilileyo; baya kusuka ngokweenkanuko zabo bazifumbele abafundisi, bebaba iindlebe;
4 babeya kuzisonga zimke iindlebe kuyo inyaniso, baphambukele ke kuzo iintsomi.
5 Ke wena yiba yingcathu ezintweni zonke, nyamezela ububi, umsebenzi womshumayeli weendaba ezilungileyo wenze, buzalise ubulungiseleli bakho.
6 Kuba mna sendithululwa ngokomnikelo; nalo ixesha lokunduluka kwam likufuphi.
7 Umzamo omhle ndiwuzamile, ugqatso ndilufezile, ukholo ndilugcinile.
8 Okokugqibela ndibekelwe isithsaba sobulungisa, eya kundibuyisela ngaso ngaloo mini iNkosi, umgwebi olilungisa; ingabi ndim ndedwa ke, ibe ngabo bonke abakuthandayo ukubonakala kwayo.
9 Khawuleza uze kum kamsinya;
10 kuba uDemasi wandishiya ngokuthanda iphakade langoku, waya eTesalonika; uKreske uye kwelaseGalati; uTito uye kwelaseDalmati.
11 NguLuka yedwa onam. Thabatha uMarko uze naye; kuba unokundinceda kakuhle kumsebenzi wokulungiselela.
12 Ke uTikiko ndamthumela e-Efese.
13 Ingubo endayishiya eTrowa kuKarpo, uze uyiphathe ekuzeni kwakho, neencwadi ezo, ngokukodwa ezezintsu.
14 UAlesandire, umkhandi wobhedu, wandenza izinto ezininzi ezimbi; iNkosi iya kumbuyekeza ngokwemisebenzi yakhe.
15 Mlumkele nawe; kuba wawachasa kunene amazwi ethu.
16 Kokokuqala ukuziphendulela kwam, akubangakho namnye unam, basuka bonke bandishiya; kwanga akungebalelwe kubo oko.
17 Noko ke iNkosi yandinceda, yandomeleza; ukuze ngam uvakaliso lweendaba ezilungileyo luzaliseke, neentlanga zonke zive; ndaza ndahlangulwa emlonyeni wengonyama.
18 Isaya kundihlangula yona iNkosi kuwo wonke umsebenzi ongendawo, indisindisele ebukumkanini bayo obusemazulwini; kuyo makubekho uzuko, kuse emaphakadeni asemaphakadeni. Amen.
19 Bulisa kuPriska noAkwila, nakwindlu kaOnesiforo.
20 UErasto wasala eKorinte. Ke uTrofimo ndamshiya eMileto esifa.
21 Khawuleza uze, kungekabi sebusika. Uya kubulisa uYubhulo, noPudens, noLino, noKlawudiya, nabo abazalwana bonke.
22 INkosi uYesu Kristu mayibe nomoya wakho. Ubabalo malube nani. Amen.
