1UPawulu, inceku kaKristu Jesu, umphostoli obiziweyo nowahlukaniselwe ivangeli likaNkulunkulu,
2 alethembisa ngaphambili ngabaprofethi bakhe emibhalweni engcwele
3 mayelana neNdodana yakhe eyavela enzalweni kaDavide ngokwenyama,
4 eyabonakaliswa ngamandla ukuthi iyiNdodana kaNkulunkulu ngokoMoya wobungcwele ngokuvuka kwabafileyo, uJesu Kristu iNkosi yethu
5 esamukela ngaye umusa nobuphostoli kube ngukulalela kokukholwa ezizweni zonke ngenxa yegama lakhe,
6 enikuzo nani eningababiziweyo bakaJesu Kristu,
7 kubo bonke abathandiweyo bakaNkulunkulu abaseRoma, ababiziweyo, abangcwele: Makube kini umusa nokuthula okuvela kuNkulunkulu uBaba wethu naseNkosini uJesu Kristu.
8 Kuqala-ke ngibonga uNkulunkulu wami ngoJesu Kristu ngani nonke, ngokuba ukukholwa kwenu kunconywa ezweni lonke.
9 Ngokuba uNkulunkulu, engimkhonza emoyeni wami ngevangeli leNdodana yakhe, ungufakazi wami wokuthi ngokungaphezi ngiyanikhumbula
10 njalo emikhulekweni yami, nginxusa ukuba, uma kungenzeka ngentando kaNkulunkulu, ngiphumelele ukufika kini.
11 Ngokuba ngilangazelela ukunibona ukuze nginabele isipho esithile somusa sokomoya ukuba niqiniswe,
12 okungukuthi siduduzane kanye nani phakathi kwenu ngokukholwa kwethu okwenu nokwami.
13 Angithandi, bazalwane, ukuba ningazi ukuthi ngazimisela kaningi ukuza kini, kepha ngathiyeka kuze kube manje ukuba nakini ngibe nezithelo njengakwezinye izizwe.
14 Nginecala kumaGreki nakwabezizwe, kwabahlakaniphileyo nakwabangaqondiyo;
15 kanjalo mina ngokwami nginesifiso sokushumayela ivangeli nakinina baseRoma.
16 Ngokuba anginamahloni ngevangeli; ngokuba lingamandla kaNkulunkulu, kube yinsindiso kulowo nalowo okholwayo, kumJuda kuqala, nakumGreki.
17 Ngokuba ukulunga kukaNkulunkulu kwambulwa kulo, kuvela ekukholweni, kuyisa ekukholweni, njengokulotshiweyo ukuthi: “Olungileyo uzakuphila ngokukholwa.”
18 Ngokuba intukuthelo kaNkulunkulu yambulwa ivela ezulwini phezu kwakho konke ukungamesabi uNkulunkulu nokungalungi kwabantu abathiya iqiniso ngokungalungi,
19 ngokuba lokho okwazekayo ngoNkulunkulu kusobala phakathi kwabo; ngokuba uNkulunkulu ukubonakalisile kubo.
20 Ngokuba okungabonwayo kwakhe, kuthi amandla akhe aphakade nobuNkulunkulu bakhe kubonakala kwasekudalweni kwezwe, ngokuba kuqondakala ngezenzo zakhe, ukuze bangabi nakuzilandulela,
21 ngokuba kuthe bemazi uNkulunkulu, kabamdumisanga, kabambonganga njengoNkulunkulu, kodwa balutheka ekuzindleni kwabo; inhliziyo yabo engaqondiyo yaba mnyama.
22 Bezisho ukuthi bahlakaniphile baba yiziwula,
23 nenkazimulo kaNkulunkulu ongabhubhiyo bayiguqula ifane nomfanekiso womuntu obhubhayo, owezinyoni, nowezilwane ezinezinyawo ezine nezinwabuzelayo.
24 Ngalokho uNkulunkulu wabanikela ezinkanukweni zezinhliziyo zabo kukho ukungcola, bahlazisane imizimba yabo,
25 baguqule iqiniso likaNkulunkulu, balenza amanga; bahlonipha, bakhonza okudaliweyo kunoMdali ongobongekayo kuze kube phakade. Amen.
26 Ngenxa yalokho uNkulunkulu wabanikela ekuhuhekeni okuyihlazo; ngokuba abesifazane babo baguqula ukwenza okwemvelo kwaba ngokuphambene nemvelo;
27 ngokunjalo nabesilisa bayeka ukwenza kwemvelo kowesifazane, basha ngokukhanukelana, abesilisa benza okuyichilo kwabesilisa, bezitholela umvuzo ofanele ukuduka kwabo.
28 Nanjengalokho bengakunakanga ukumazi uNkulunkulu, uNkulunkulu wabanikela engqondweni yokunganaki ukwenza okungafanele,
29 begcwele konke ukungalungi, nokonakala, nesangabe, nobubi; begcwele umhawu, nokubulala, nokuphikisana, nenkohliso, nobuqili, nokuhleba;
30 beyizinyevuzi, nabazonda uNkulunkulu, nezidlova, nabazidlayo, nabazigabisayo, nabaqambi bokubi, nabangalaleli abazali,
31 nabangenangqondo, nabangathembekile, nabangenaluthando, nabangenasihawu,
32 abathi besazi isimiso sokulunga sikaNkulunkulu sokuthi abenza okunjalo bafanele ukufa, abenzi lokho kuphela, kodwa babuye bavumelana nabakwenzayo.
