Ngalo siyabonga uNkulunkulu ngitsho uBaba r , langalo siqalekisa abantu abenziwe ngokufanana loNkulunkulu s ; 10 emlonyeni ofananayo kuyaphuma ukubonga lenhlamba. Lezizinto kazifanelanga, bazalwane bami, zenzeke njalo. 11 Kambe umthombo emgodini ofananayo ungagobhoza yini okumnandi lokubabayo? 12 Kambe, bazalwane bami, umkhiwa ungathela imihlwathi yini, loba ivini umkhiwa? Ngokunjalo kakulamthombo oveza amanzi alitswayi lamnandi.
