Zvino ndoupiko kwavari uchanyanya kumuda? 43 Simoni akapindura, akati: Handiti ndiye wakakanganwirwa zvizhinji here? Akati kwaari: Wareva kwazvo. 44 Zvino akatendevukira kumukadzi, akati kunaSimoni: Unovona mukadzi, uyu here? Ndakapinda mumba mako, ukasandipa mvura yetsoka dzangu; asi uyu wakanyorevesa tsoka dzangu nemisodzi yake, akadzipisika nevudzi rake. 45 Hauna kundisveta, asi uyu chinguri chandapinda, haana kurega kusveta tsoka dzangu. 46 Hauna kundizodza musoro wangu namafuta, asi uyu wakazodza tsoka dzangu nechizoro. 47 Naizvozvo, ndinoti kwauri: Zvivi zvake, zviya zvizhinji, wazvikangamwirwa, nokuti wakada zvikuru; asi unokangamwirwa zvishoma, unoda zvishoma. 48 Zvino akati kwaari: Wakangamwirwa zvivi zvako. 49 Vakanga vagere naye pakudya vakatanga kureva mumoyo yavo, vachiti: Uyu ndianiko unokangamwira zvivi vo? 50 Akati kumukadzi: Kutenda kwako kwakuraramisa; enda hako norugare.
