Kaliyikwengezelela elizwini engililaya lona, lingaphunguli lutho kulo, ukuze ligcine imilayo ye Nkosi uNkulunkulu wenu engililaya yona b . Amehlo enu abonile i Nkosi eyakwenzayo ngenxa kaBhali-Peyori c ; ngoba wonke umuntu owalandela uBhali-Peyori, i Nkosi uNkulunkulu wenu yambhubhisa phakathi kwenu; kodwa lina elanamathela e Nkosini uNkulunkulu wenu liyaphila lonke lamuhla. Bonani, ngilifundisile izimiso lezahlulelo, njengokungilaya kwe Nkosi uNkulunkulu wami, ukuthi lenze njalo phakathi kwelizwe eliya kulo ukudla ilifa lalo. Ngakho zigcineni, lizenze; ngoba lokhu kuyinhlakanipho yenu lokuqedisisa kwenu emehlweni ezizwe d  ezizakuzwa zonke lezizimiso zithi: Isibili lesisizwe esikhulu singabantu abahlakaniphileyo labaqedisisayo e .

Futhi yisiphi isizwe esikhulu esilezimiso lezahlulelo ezilungileyo njengalumlayo wonke engiwubeka phambi kwenu lamuhla?
