UMarko ULuka UYohane

Chapitre 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24

1 Ke kaloku kwathi ngaloo mihla, kwaphuma ummiselo kuKesare Awugusto othi, malibhalwe encwadini yomlibo wokuzalwa lonke elimiweyo.

2 Olo lubhalo lwaba lolokuqala, akubon’ ukuba uKireniyo uyirhuluneli yeSiriya.

3 Babesithi bonke baye kubhalwa, athi elowo aye kowakowabo umzi.

4 Wenyuka ke noYosefu, evela kwelaseGalili, kumzi oyiNazarete, waya kwelakwaYuda, emzini kaDavide, ekuthiwa yiBhetelehem, ngenxa yokuba ebengowendlu kaDavide, engowemizalwane yakhe;

5 esiya kubhalwa, enoMariya, umfazi lowo wayemganelwe, selekhulelwe.

6 Ke kaloku kwathi, xa bakhona, yazaliseka imihla yokuba azale.

7 Wamzala unyana wakhe wamazibulo, wamsongela eziqhiyeni, wamlalisa emkhumbini wesitali, ngenxa enokuba babengenandawo endlwini yabahambi.

8 Kwaye kukho abalusi kwakwelo lizwe, behlala ezindle, belinda ebusuku imihlambi yabo.

9 Babona ngesithunywa seNkosi simi phezu kwabo, bathi nobuqaqawuli beNkosi bababengezelela ngeenxa zonke; besuka boyika ngokoyika okukhulu.

ULuka 2:9 - Angel Appears to Shepherds
Angel Appears to Shepherds
10 Isithunywa eso sathi kubo, Musani ukoyika; kuba, yabonani, ndinishumayeza iindaba ezilungileyo zovuyo olukhulu, oluya kuba kubo bonke bantu;

11 ngokuba nizalelwe namhlanje emzini kaDavide uMsindisi, onguKristu iNkosi.

12 Nantsi ke into eyoba ngumqondiso kuni: nofumana lusana lusongelweyo eziqhiyeni, lulele emkhumbini wesitali.

13 Kwabakho ngesiquphe, ndawonye nesithunywa eso, inkitha yomkhosi wasemazulwini, idumisa uThixo, isithi,

14 Uzuko kuThixo enyangweni, Uxolo emhlabeni, Inkolelo ebantwini.

15 Kwathi ke, zakumka kubo izithunywa zisiya emazulwini, abantu abo abalusi bathi omnye komnye, Masesihamba sisiya eBhetelehem apho, siyibone le nto ihlileyo, esiyazisiweyo yiNkosi.

16 Beza ngobungxamo, bamfumana uMariya, kwanoYosefu, nalo usana lulele emkhumbini wesitali.

17 Bathi ke, bakubona, balibhengeza ilizwi elabe lithethwe kubo ngaye lo mntwana.

18 Bathi bonke abo bevayo, bamangaliswa zezo zinto zabe zithethwe kubo ngabalusi.

ULuka 2:18 - Shepherds Tell Their Story
Shepherds Tell Their Story
19 Waye ke uMariya ezigcina zonke ezi zinto eziguquguqula entliziyweni yakhe.

20 Babuya abalusi, bemzukisa bemdumisa uThixo, ngenxa yazo zonke izinto ababezivile nababezibonile, njengoko kwabe kuthethiwe kubo.

21 Xeshikweni ke zazizalisekile iintsuku ezisibhozo zokuba umntwana aluswe, wathiywa igama elinguYesu, elo wabelithiyiwe sisithunywa sezulu, engekamithwa nokumithwa.

22 Xeshikweni ke zazizalisekile iintsuku zokuhlanjululwa kwabo ngokomthetho kaMoses, benyuka naye baya eYerusalem, ukuba bammise phambi kweNkosi,

23 njengoko kubhaliweyo emthethweni weNkosi, kwathiwa, Yonke into eliduna, evula isizalo, ize kuthiwe ingcwele eNkosini;

24 nokuba benze idini njengoko kutshiwoyo emthethweni weNkosi ukuthi, Isibini samahobe, nokuba ngamagobo amabini amavukuthu.

25 Kwaye ke kukho umntu eYerusalem, ogama linguSimon; waye loo mntu elilungisa, emoyika uThixo, elinde intuthuzelo kaSirayeli; waye noMoya oyiNgcwele ephezu kwakhe.

26 Wayehlatyelwe nguMoya oyiNgcwele, ukuba akayi kubona kufa, engekamboni uKristu weNkosi.

27 Weza ngaye uMoya etempileni; kwathi, ekumngeniseni kwabo abazali umntwana uYesu, ukuba bamenze ngokwesiko lomthetho,

28 yena wamamkelela ezingalweni zakhe, wabonga uThixo, wathi:

ULuka 2:28 - Simeon and Baby Jesus
Simeon and Baby Jesus
29 Uyamndulula ngoku umkhonzi wakho enoxolo, Mnini-nto-zonke, ngokwelizwi lakho;

30 Ngokuba amehlo am alubonile usindiso lwakho,

31 Olulungisileyo ebusweni bazo zonke izizwe,

32 Isikhanyiso sokutyhilela iintlanga, Uzuko lwabantu bakho, amaSirayeli.

33 Babemangaliswa ooYosefu nonina zezo zinto zithethwayo ngaye.

34 USimon wabasikelela, wathi kuMariya unina, Uyabona, lo umiselwe ukuwa nokuvuka kwabaninzi kwaSirayeli, nokuba abe ngumqondiso ochasiweyo;

35 ngokokuze zibe nokutyhilwa izicamango eziphuma ezintliziyweni ezininzi; ewe ke, nowakho umphefumlo ikrele liya kuwutyhutyha.

36 Kwaye kukho noAna umprofetikazi, intombi kaFanuweli, wesizwe sika-Ashere. Yena waye eselekhulile kakhulu; waye ke ebehleli nendoda iminyaka esixhenxe, ethabathela ebuntombini bakhe.

37 Waye yena engumhlolokazi ominyaka ngathi imashumi asibhozo anamine, obengemki etempileni, ekhonza uThixo ngokuzila ukudla nangokukhunga ubusuku nemini.

38 Yena wayemele kufuphi ngelo lixa, wathelela ekuyidumiseni iNkosi; wayethetha ngayo kubo bonke abo babelinde ukukhululwa ngentlawulelo, eYerusalem.

39 Bakuba bezigqibile zonke izinto ngokomthetho weNkosi, babuyela kwelaseGalili, emzini wabo iNazarete.

40 Ke kaloku wakhula umntwana, waya esomelela emoyeni, ezele bubulumko; lwaye nobabalo lukaThixo luphezu kwakhe.

41 Baye ke abazali bakhe behambela eYerusalem, iminyaka ngeminyaka, emthendelekweni wepasika.

42 Kuthe, xa abe eminyaka ilishumi elinamibini ezelwe, bakubon’ ukuba banyuke baya eYerusalem ngokwesiko lomthendeleko lowo,

43 bakubon’ ukuba bazigqibile ke iintsuku ezo, ekubuyeni kwabo, umntwana uYesu wasalela eYerusalem. Babengazi ke uYosefu nonina.

44 Babeba ke bona usemkhokweni wabahambi, bahamba uhambo lwamini-nye; bamana bemfuna phakathi kwemizalwana, naphakathi kwabazana nabo.

45 Bathe bakuba bengamfumani, babuyela eYerusalem, bemfuna.

46 Kwathi, emveni kwemihla emithathu, bamfumana etempileni, ehleli phakathi kwabafundisi, ebaphulaphula, ebuya ebabuza.

ULuka 2:46 - The Boy Jesus in the Temple
The Boy Jesus in the Temple
47 Basuka bonke ababemphulaphula bathi nqa yingqondo yakhe na ziimpendulo zakhe.

48 Bakumbona bakhwankqiswa. Unina wathi kuye, Mntwana wam, yini na ukuba usenjenje? Uyabona, uyihlo nam sibe sikufuna, sibuhlungu kakhulu.

49 Wathi kubo, Benindifunela ntoni na? Beningazi na ukuba ndimelwe kukuba ndibe semicimbini kaBawo?

50 Ke bona abayiqondanga into awayeyithetha kubo.

51 Wehla nabo, waya kufika eNazarete, wabalulamela. Wamana ukuzigcina ke unina zonke ezo ndawo entliziyweni yakhe.

52 Waye UYesu ehambela phambili ebulumkweni nasebukhulwini, nasekuthandweni nguThixo nangabantu.
