12  Ngakho-ke khumbula uMdali wakho omkhulu ngensuku zobutsha bakho,+ zingakafiki insuku zokukhathazeka*+ njalo ingakafiki leminyaka lapho ozakuthi: “Angithokozi ngayo,”  ilanga, lokukhanya, lenyanga kanye lezinkanyezi kungasakhanyisi+ futhi lamayezi engakachitheki ngemva kokuna kwezulu,*  kungakafiki ilanga lapho abalindi* bendlu abazabe sebegedezela khona,* lamadoda alamandla esekhokhobele labesifazana sebeyekele ukuchola ngenxa yokuthi sebebalutshwane, labomama abalunguze emawindini sebebona kalufifi;+  lapho iminyango ekhangele emigwaqweni isivaliwe, lomsindo walabo abacholayo usuzwakalela khatshana, lapho umuntu esevuswa ngumsindo wokukhala kwenyoni lalapho wonke amadodakazi ahlabelayo engasazwakali kuhle.+  Lapho umuntu esesesaba izindawo eziphakemeyo njalo sekulezingozi emgwaqweni. Lapho isihlahla sama-alimondi sesikhipha amaluba*+ lentethe isihamba izihudula, inhliziyo isimnyama* ngoba umuntu esesiya endlini yakhe yaphakade+ futhi labalilayo sebehambahamba emgwaqweni;+  intambo yesiliva ingakasuswa lomganu wegolide ungakaphahlazwa, lembiza yebumba ingakabulawa futhi lendrayi ingakabhidlizwa.  Uthuli beselubuyela emhlabathini+ lapho olwavela khona njalo amandla okuphila abuyele* kuNkulunkulu weqiniso onguye owawanika abantu.+  Umtshumayeli uthi: “Akuncedi ngalutho!”+ “Konke nje akuncedi ngitsho.”+  Umtshumayeli wayehlakaniphile njalo waqhubeka efundisa abantu izinto ayezazi,+ wacabangisisa futhi wachwayisisa kakhulu ukuze aqoqe* izaga ezinengi.+ 10  Kanti njalo wadingisisa ukuze athole amazwi athokozisayo,+ wabhala lamazwi aqondileyo futhi aliqiniso. 11  Amazwi abantu abahlakaniphileyo anjengezinciji*+ njalo izitsho zabo abaziqoqileyo zinjengezipikili ezibethelwe zaqina, amazwi abo avela kumelusi munye. 12  Ngaphezu kwalokho nanku okumele ukunanzelele ndodana yami: Amabhuku azaqhubeka ebhalwa ngobunengi bawo kodwa ukuhlala uwabala kuyawudinisa umzimba.+ 13  Konke sekukhulunyiwe nansi isiphetho sendaba: Mesabe uNkulunkulu weqiniso+ ugcine imithetho yakhe+ ngoba lo yiwo wonke umlandu womuntu.+ 14  Phela uNkulunkulu weqiniso uzakwahlulela zonke izenzo zabantu, kuhlanganise lakho konke okufihlakeleyo atsho ukuthi kuhle yini loba kubi.+
