Baba ongcwele, babheke + ngenxa yegama lakho engibambulele lona, ukuze babe munye* njengoba nje nathi simunye. *+ 12  Lapho ngisenabo ngangibaqapha + ngenxa yegama lakho engibambulele lona; futhi ngibavikelile, akekho noyedwa kubo obhubhile + ngaphandle kwendodana yokubhubha, + ukuze kugcwaliseke umbhalo. + 13  Kodwa manje ngiza kuwe, futhi ngikhuluma lezi zinto ezweni, ukuze bayizwe ngokugcwele injabulo enginayo. + 14  Ngibanike izwi lakho, kodwa izwe libazondile ngoba bengeyona ingxenye yezwe, + njengoba nje nami ngingeyona ingxenye yezwe. 15  “Angikuceli ukuba ubakhiphe ezweni, kodwa ukuba ubabheke ngenxa yomubi. + 16  Abayona ingxenye yezwe, + njengoba nje nami ngingeyona ingxenye yezwe. + 17  Bangcwelise* ngeqiniso; + izwi lakho liyiqiniso. + 18  Njengoba nje wangithuma ezweni, nami ngibathuma ezweni. + 19  Ngiyazingcwelisa ngenxa yabo, ukuze nabo bangcweliswe ngeqiniso. 20  “Angiceleli laba kuphela, kodwa nalabo ababa nokholo kimi ngenxa yokushumayela kwabo, 21  ukuze bonke babe munye, + njengoba nje wena, Baba, umunye nami futhi nami ngimunye nawe, + ukuba nabo babe munye nathi, ukuze izwe likholwe ukuthi ungithumile. 22  Ngibanikile inkazimulo onginike yona, ukuze babe munye njengoba nje nathi simunye. + 23  Mina ngimunye nabo, nawe umunye nami, ukuze babe munye ngokuphelele,* ukuze izwe lazi ukuthi ungithumile nokuthi ubathandile njengoba nje nami ungithandile. 24  Baba, ngifisa ukuthi labo onginike bona, babe nami lapho ngikhona, + ukuze babone inkazimulo yami onginike yona ngoba wangithanda ngaphambi kokusungulwa kwezwe. + 25  Baba olungile, ngempela izwe alizange likwazi, + kodwa mina ngiyakwazi, + nalaba sebeyazi ukuthi ungithumile. 26  Ngibazisile igama lakho futhi ngizolenza laziwe, + ukuze uthando ongithande ngalo lube kubo nami ngibe munye nabo.” +
