1 Ke kaloku kwathi, xa uApolo aseKorinte, uPawulos, ewatyhutyhile amacala asentla, weza e-Efese;

2 wafumana bafundi bathile, wathi kubo, UMoya oyiNgcwele namamkela na, nakholwayo nje? Bathi ke bona kuye, Asizanga sive nokuva ukuba kukho uMoya oyiNgcwele.

3 Wathi kubo, Nanibhaptizelwe enini na phofu? Bathe ke bona, Elubhaptizweni lukaYohane.

4 Wathi ke uPawulos, UYohane okunene wabhaptiza ubhaptizo lwenguquko, esithi ebantwini, mabakholwe kulowo uzayo emva kwakhe, oko kukuthi, kuKristu Yesu.

5 Bevile ke, babhaptizelwa egameni leNkosi uYesu.

6 Uthe uPawulos akubeka izandla phezu kwabo, wehla uMoya oyiNgcwele phezu kwabo, baye bethetha ngeelwimi, beprofeta.

7 Aye ke amadoda lawo ewonke engathi alishumi elinamabini.

8 Ke kaloku, wangena endlwini yesikhungu, wathetha ngokungafihlisiyo iinyanga zantathu, exoxa nabantu, ebeyisela kwizinto ezingabo ubukumkani bukaThixo.

9 Ke bakuba abathile belukhuni, bengaphulaphuli, bethetha okubi ngayo iNdlela leyo phambi komhlambi, wesuka kubo, wabahlula abafundi, exoxa imihla ngemihla esikolweni sikaTirano.

10 Oku ke kwenzeka iminyaka emibini, ngokokude bonke abemiyo kwelaseAsiya balive ilizwi leNkosi uYesu, amaYuda kwanamaGrike.

11 Waye noThixo esenze ngezandla zikaPawulos imisebenzi yamandla engahlali isihla;

12 ngokokude kusiwe nakwimilwelwe iiqhiya nemibhinqo, ivela emzimbeni wakhe, zisuke kubo izifo, bathi noomoya abakhohlakeleyo baphume kubo.

13 Ke kaloku bathi abathile bakumaYuda abhadulayo, angabafungisi, bazamela ukulibiza igama leNkosi uYesu phezu kwabanoomoya abakhohlakeleyo, besithi, Sinifungisa uYesu lowo uvakaliswayo nguPawulos.

14 Kwaye kukho ke nyana bathile basixhenxe bakaSkeva, umYuda, umbingeleli omkhulu, ababekwenza oko.

15 Waphendula ke umoya okhohlakeleyo, wathi. UYesu ndiyamazi, noPawulos ndiyamazi kakuhle; ke nina ningoobani na?

16 Wesuka umntu obukuye umoya okhohlakeleyo, wabatsibela, wabagagamela wabeyisa, ngokokude babaleke baphume kuloo ndlu bengxwelerhiwe, beze.

17 Kwathi ke oko kwazeka kuwo onke amaYuda, kwanakumaGrike amiyo e-Efese; angenwa kukoyika onke, lenziwa likhulu igama leNkosi uYesu.

18 Yaye nento eninzi yabakholiweyo isiza, izivuma izixela izenzo zabo.

19 Yathi ke nento eyaneleyo yabasebenza izenzo zobugqi, yazizisa ndaweni-nye iincwadi zayo, bawayazitshisa phambi kwabo bonke; bawabala amaxabiso azo, bafumana engamawaka amashumi mahlanu esilivere.

20 Lenjenjalo ke ilizwi leNkosi ukwanda ngamandla nokweyisa.

21 Ke kaloku, zakuzaliseka ezi zinto, wamisa emoyeni wakhe uPawulos ukuba athi, elityhutyhile elaseMakedoni nelaseAkaya, aye eYerusalem, esithi, Emveni kokuba ndithe ndakhona, ndimelwe kukuba ndibone neRoma.

22 Wathuma ke kwelaseMakedoni bababini kwabamlungiselelayo, uTimoti noErasto; yena ke wakha walibala umzuzu kwelaseAsiya.

23 Ke kaloku kwabakho ngelo xesha inkathazeko engencinane ngayo iNdlela le.

24 Kuba uthile, ogama linguDemetriyo, umkhandi wesilivere, obesenza iitempile zesilivere zika-Artemis, wayezizuzisa iingcibi inzuzo engencinane.

25 Waziqukela ndawonye, kwanabasebenzi bezinto ezinjalo, wathi, Madoda, niyazi kakuhle ukuba buphuma kule nzuzo ubutyebi bethu;

26 kananjalo niyabona, niyeva, ukuba akuse-Efese kodwa, kuphantse ukuba kulo lonke elaseAsiya, athe lo Pawulos waphambukisa isihlwele esaneleyo, ngokusoyisa ngamazwi athi, asingoothixo abo benziwa ngesandla.

27 Asisiso ke esi sabelo sethu sodwa esisichenge sokudelwa; kwanetempile yothixokazi omkhulu uArtemis iza kubalelwa ekuthini yinto engento, butshabalale ke nobungangamela bakhe, ohlonelwa lelaseAsiya liphela nelimiweyo.

28 Bakukuva ke oko, bazala ngumsindo, bankqangaza, besithi, Mkhulu uArtemis wabase-Efese!

29 Wazala umzi uphela sisidubedube; besuka indulumbane ngamxhelo mnye endaweni yokubonela, bamthi hlasi uGayo noAristarko, abelaseMakedoni, ababehamba noPawulos.

30 Uthe ke uPawulos, enga angangena entlanganisweni yabantu, abamvumela abafundi.

31 Abathile ke bakubaphathi belaseAsiya, benobuhlobo kuye, bathumela kuye, bambongoza ukuba angazinikeli endaweni yokubonela.

32 Abanye ke ngoko babenkqangaza enye into, abanye yimbi, kuba ibandla labe lidubadubekile; baye abaninzi bengazi ukuba babuthelene ngenxa yantoni na.

33 Bamrhola ke esihlweleni uAlesandire, akubon’ ukuba amaYuda amtyhalela phambili; uwangawangisile ke uAlesandire ngesandla, wafuna ukuziphendulela eluntwini.

34 Kodwa bakuqonda ukuba ungumYuda, benza inzwinini enye bonke bephela, benkqangaza umzuzu omaxa mabini, besithi, Mkhulu uArtemis wabase-Efese!

35 Esizolisile ke umbhali isihlwele, uthe, Madoda ase-Efese, kanene nguwuphi na umntu ongaziyo, ukuba umzi wase-Efese ungumgcini-tempile wothixokazi omkhulu uArtemis, nowomfanekiselo owawa kuZeyus.

36 Zingenakuphikwa nje ke ezo zinto, nimelwe kukuthi nizole, ningenzi nanye into ngobutyhuthu-tyhuthu,

37 Kuba niwazise apha la madoda, engebaphangi batempile, nabanyelisi bothixokazi wenu.

38 Ukuba ke ngoko uDemetriyo neengcibi ezinaye banendawo emntwini, zikho iimini zamatyala, akho namabamba; mabamangalelane.

39 Ke ukuba nifuna into nganto zimbi, yoconjululwa kwesesikweni intlanganiso.

40 Kuba sizizichenge zokumangalelwa ngesaqunge sanamhla, kungekho nasinye isizathu nje, esingaba nako ngaso ukwenza ilizwi ngale mbuthumbuthu.

41 Akutsho, wayindulula intlanganiso.
