1 USimon Petros, umkhonzi nompostile kaYesu Kristu, ubhalela abo baluzuzileyo ukholo oluxabiso lunye nolwethu, ebulungiseni bukaThixo wethu, uMsindisi wethu uYesu Kristu:
2 uthi, Makwandiswe kuni ubabalo noxolo, ngokumazi uThixo, noYesu, iNkosi yethu.
3 Nibona nje, ukuba amandla akhe obuThixo asiphile zonke izinto ezisingise ebomini nasekuhloneleni uThixo, ngako ukumazi lowo wasibizayo ngozuko nesidima.
4 Esithe ngezo zinto, saphiwa amadinga amakhulukazi, anqabileyo, ukuze ngawo nibe ngamadlelane ngemvelo yobuThixo, nisinde ekonakaleni okukhoyo ehlabathini ngenkanuko.
5 Ewe, ngenxa yoko, nakuba niqokele ukukhuthala konke, yithini elukholweni lwenu nongezelele isidima; esidimeni ke, ukwazi;
6 ekwazini ke, ukuzeyisa; ekuzeyiseni ke, umonde; emondeni ke, ukuhlonela uThixo;
7 ekuhloneleni ke uThixo, ukuthanda abazalwana; ekuthandeni ke abazalwana, ukuthanda abantu bonke.
8 Kuba xa zikhoyo ezo zinto kuni, zisanda, zinenza ukuba ninganqeni, ningabi ngabaswele isiqhamo ekuyazini iNkosi yethu uYesu Kristu.
9 Kuba lowo zingekhoyo kuye ezo zinto, uyimfama; ubona luzizi, ekulibele ukuhlanjululwa kwezono zakhe zakudala.
10 Endithi ngoko, bazalwana, makube kukhona nikhuthalele ukulwenza luqine ubizo nonyulo lwenu; kuba, nakuzenza ezo zinto, anisayi kukha nikhubeke.
11 Kuba ngokunjalo nophiwa ngokobutyebi ukungena ebukumkanini obungunaphakade beNkosi yethu, uMsindisi uYesu Kristu.
12 Kungoko ndingakuyekiyo ukuhlala ndinikhumbuza ngezo zinto, noko nizaziyo, nizimasekileyo enyanisweni leyo ikhoyo kuni.
13 Ndiba ke kububulungisa, ukuba ngalo gama ndikulo mnquba, ndinivuse ngokunikhumbuza;
14 ndisazi nje ukuba kukufuphi ukubekwa nxamnye kwalo mnquba wam, njengokuba nayo iNkosi yethu uYesu Kristu yandazisayo.
15 Kananjalo ndiya kukhuthalela ke ukuba nibe nako, amaxa onke emva kokumka kwam, ukuzikhunjuzwa ezo zinto.
16 Kuba sithe, singalandelanga zintsomi zabuqhinga, sanazisa amandla nokufika kweNkosi yethu uYesu Kristu; sithe saba ngababoneli bobungangamsha bakhe.
17 Kuba wamkela kuThixo uYise imbeko nozuko, ekuzisweni kuye, bubuqaqawuli obubalaseleyo, izwi elinjengeli: Lo nguNyana wam oyintanda, endikholisiweyo mna nguye.
18 Nelo zwi ke saliva thina, lisiza liphuma ezulwini, sinaye entabeni leyo ingcwele.
19 Kanjalo sinalo nelona lizwi liqinisekileyo elilelobuprofeti, enityaphayo ukulinyamekela, linjengesibane esikhanyisa endaweni emnyama, kude kuse, liphume ikhwezi ezintliziyweni zenu;
20 nisazi oku kuqala, ukuba sonke isiprofeto sesibhalo asibikho ngokuzicombululela.
21 Kuba akukhanga kubekho siprofeto ngokuthanda komntu; bathi abantu abangcwele bakaThixo bathetha beqhutywa nguMoya oyiNgcwele.

1 Ke kaloku, kwakukho nabaprofeti ababuxoki phakathi kwabantu; njengokuba naphakathi kwenu kuya kubakho abafundisi ababuxoki, bona baya kungenisa bucala amahlelo entshabalalo, bemkhanyela uMnini-nto-zonke owabathengayo, bezizisela intshabalalo emsinya.
2 Baninzi abaya kulandela intshabalalo yabo; eya kunyeliswa ngenxa yabo indlela yenyaniso.
3 Bathi benokubawa, banibonelele ngamazwi alalanisayo; abakugwetywa kungaphumliyo kwakudala, nayo intshabalalo yabo ayozeli.
4 Kuba, xa uThixo angaziconganga izithunywa zezulu ezonayo, wesuka wathi, ezikhahlele enzonzobileni, wazinikela emixokelelwaneni yesithokothoko, zigcinelwe umgwebo;
5 naxa angaliconganga ihlabathi lakudala, wesuka walondoloza uNowa, umvakalisi wobulungisa, enabasixhenxe, akuba elihlisele unogumbe ihlabathi labangahloneli Thixo;
6 xa athe nemizi yaseSodom neGomora wayitshisa yaluthuthu, wayigweba ukuba ibhukuqeke, wayenza umzekelo wabaza kuba ngabangahloneli Thixo;
7 wamhlangula uLote olilungisa, owacatshukiswa kukuhamba eburheletyweni kwabangenammiselo;
8 kuba laye, ngokubona nangokuva, ilungisa elo lihleli phakathi kwabo imihla ngemihla, liwuthuthumbisa umphefumlo walo olungisayo, ngemisebenzi yabo echasene nomthetho;
9 iyakwazi iNkosi ukubahlangula ekuhendweni abahlonela uThixo; ke abangemalungisa ibagcinele imini yomgwebo, ukuba babethwe;
10 ngokukodwa ke abo balandela inyama ngokukhanuka ukuzidyobha, abadela ubukhosi. Ngabasileyo, abenza ngokuzithandela, abangoyikiyo ukunyelisa izikhakhamela.
11 Ukanti izithunywa zezulu, zingaphezulu nje ngokomelela namandla, azizigwebi ngamgwebo unyelisayo phambi kweNkosi.
12 Ke aba, njengezinto eziphilileyo, ezingenangqondo, ezizezemvelo, ezizalelwe ukubanjwa nokonakala, benyelisa izinto abangazaziyo, baya konakala kanye ekonakaleni kwabo, bazuzane nomvuzo wokungalungisi;
13 njengababa bubuyolo ukudla ubuncwane okwemini enye; bengamabala neziphako, bexhamla ubuncwane ngokulukuhla kwabo, bezingxala ukudla ezidlweni nani;
14 benamehlo azele lukrexezo, angenakuphunyuzwa esonweni, bebambisa imiphefumlo engenakuzimaseka, benentliziyo eqheliswe ukubawa; abantwana bengqalekiso.
15 Beyishiyile indlela ethe tye, balahleka, belandela indlela kaBhileham okaBhehore, owathanda umvuzo wokungalungisi;
16 wohlwaywa ke ngokugqitha kwakhe umthetho; lathi iesile, lingenakuthetha nje, lathetha ngezwi lomntu, lamalela umprofeti lowo, ukuba angabi nxamnye nengqondo.
17 Aba bayimithombo engenamanzi, amafu aqhutywa luqhwithela, besigcinelwe bona isithokothoko sobumnyama ngonaphakade.
18 Kuba, bevakalisa nje iindumbisa zamazwi angento yanto, babambisa ngeenkanuko zenyama, ngoburheletyo, abo babesindile, kanye kwabo bahambayo ekulahlekisweni.
19 Bebathembisa nje inkululeko, bona ngokwabo bangabakhonzi bokonakala; kuba lowo athi ubani eyiswe nguye, ukhonzisiwe nokukhonziswa kuye.
20 Kuba xa bathi, besindile nje kuzo izidyobho zehlabathi ngokuyazi iNkosi, uMsindisi uYesu Kristu, babuye ke bazibhijele ngazo, boyiswe zizo, zisuke iziphelo zabo zaba mandundu kuneziqalo zabo.
21 Kuba ngekubalungele kanye, ukuba bebengayazanga indlela yobulungisa, kunokuba bathi beyazile, babuye umva, baphume kuwo umthetho ongcwele abawuwiselwayo.
22 Bahlelwe ke ngokomlinganiselo oyinene, othi, Inja ibuyele emhlanzweni wayo, nehagukazi eyahlanjwayo iye ekuzityikatyikeni eludakeni.

13 Thina ke ngokwedinga lakhe silinde elitsha izulu, nomtsha umhlaba, apho kumi ubulungisa.
14 Kungoko, zintanda, nilindele ezo zinto nje, khuthalelani ukuba nifunyanwe kuye niseluxolweni, ningenabala, ningenasiphako.
15 Ukuzeka kade umsindo kweNkosi yethu kubaleleni ekuthini lusindiso, njengoko wanibhalelayo nomzalwana wethu oyintanda, uPawulos, ngokobulumko awabunikwayo;
16 njengokuba, nasezincwadini zakhe zonke, ethetha kuzo ngezo ndawo; ekukhoyo kuzo zithile ziqiqeka nzima, abathi abangafundileyo, nabangazimasekileyo, bazigqwethele kokwabo ukutshabalala, njengokuba bezenjenjalo nezinye izibhalo.
17 Nina ngoko, zintanda, nizazi nje ngenxa engaphambili ezo zinto, zigcineni okwenu, ukuze ningathi, nikhukuliswe lulahlekiso lwabangenammiselo, niphalale kokukokwenu ukuqina.
