John 1

Shoko rakava nyama.

Pakutanga Shoko rakanga riripo, Shoko rakanga riri kunaMwari, Shoko rakanga riri Mwari. Ireri pakutanga rakanga riri kunaMwari. Zvinhu zvose zvakaitwa naye; kunze kwake hakuna kuitwa kunyange chinhu chimwe chakaitwa. Vupenyu bwaiva maari: vupenyu bwaiva chiedza chavanhu. Chiedza chinovhenekera murima; asi rima harina kuchikunda. Kwakanga kunomunhu wakatumwa naMwari, zita rake rainzi Johane. Iye wakavuya kuzopupura, kuti apupurire chiedza, kuti vose vatende naye. Uyo wakanga asati ari icho chiedza, asi wakatumwa kuti apupurire chiedza. Ichi chaiva chiedza chazvokwadi, chinovhenekera munhu mumwe nomumwe pakusvika kwacho panyika. 10 Wakanga ari panyika, asi nyika haina kumuziva. 11 Wakavuya kunezvake, asi vanhu vake havana kumugamuchira. 12 Asi vose vakamugamuchira, wakavapa simba kuti vave vana vaMwari, ivavo vanotenda kuzita rake; 13 avo vasina kuberekwa, neropa kana nokuda kwenyama. Kana nokuda kwomurume, asi naMwari. 14 Shoko rakazova nyama, rikagara pakati pedu, (tikavona kubwinya kwake, kubwinya soko wakaberekwa mumwe chete wababa,) azere nenyasha nezvokwadi. 15 Johane akamupupurira, akadanidzira, achiti: Uyu, ndiye wandaireva ndichiti;uyu unouya shure kwangu wakavapo mberi kwangu; nokuti wakanditangira. 16 Nokuti pakuzara kwake isu tose takapiwa nyasha pamusoro penyasha. 17 Nokuti murairo wakapiwa naMosesi, asi nyasha nezvokwadi zvakavuya naJesu Kristu. 18 Hakunomunhu wakatongovona Mwari; chero nguva ipi; mwanakomana wakaberekwa mumwe woga, ari pachifuva chaBaba, ndiye wakamuzivisa isu.
