uJude 1

1:1 uJude, a servant of Jesus Christ, and brother of James, to those who are beloved in God the Father, and who are guarded and called in Jesus Christ:
1:2 May mercy, noxolo, and love be fulfilled in you.
1:3 othandekayo, taking all care to write to you about your common salvation, I found it necessary to write to you in order to beg you to contend earnestly for the faith that was handed down once to the saints.
1:4 For certain men entered unnoticed, who were written of beforehand unto this judgment: impious persons who are transforming the grace of our God into self-indulgence, and who are denying both the sole Ruler and our Lord Jesus Christ.
1:5 So I want to caution you. Those who once knew everything that Jesus did, in saving the people from the land of Egypt, afterwards perished because they did not believe.
1:6 inene, the Angels, who did not keep to their first place, but instead abandoned their own domiciles, he has reserved with perpetual chains under darkness, unto the great day of judgment.
1:7 And also Sodom and Gomorrah, and the adjoining cities, in similar ways, having given themselves over to fornication and to the pursuing of other flesh, were made an example, suffering the punishment of eternal fire.
1:8 Ngokufanayo naye, these ones certainly defile the flesh, and they despise proper authority, and they blaspheme against majesty.
1:9 When Michael the Archangel, disputing with the devil, contended about the body of Moses, he did not dare to bring against him a judgment of blasphemy, so instead he said: “The Lord commands you.”
1:10 But these men certainly blaspheme against whatever they do not understand. Kwaye u, whatever they, like mute animals, know from nature, in these things they are corrupted.
1:11 Woe to them! For they have gone after the way of Cain, and they have poured out the error of Balaam for profit, and they have perished in the sedition of Korah.
1:12 These ones are defiled within their banquets, enjoying themselves and feeding themselves without fear; waterless clouds, which are tossed about by winds; autumn trees, unfruitful, twice dead, uprooted;
1:13 raging waves of the sea, foaming from their own confusion; wandering stars, for whom the whirlwind of darkness has been reserved forever!
1:14 And about these, uEnoki, the seventh from Adam, also prophesied, bathi: "Khangela, the Lord is arriving with thousands of his saints,
1:15 to execute judgment against everyone, and to reprove all the impious concerning all the works of their impiety, by which they have acted impiously, and concerning all the harsh things that impious sinners have spoken against God.”
1:16 These ones are complaining murmurers, walking according to their own desires. And their mouth is speaking arrogance, admiring persons for the sake of gain.
1:17 Kodwa wena, kakhulu othandekayo, niwakhumbule amazwi ziye kwangaphambili amazwi enawaxelelwa ngabathunywa beNkosi yethu uYesu Krestu,
1:18 who declared to you that, in the end time, there would arrive mockers, walking according to their own desires, in impieties.
1:19 These are the ones who segregate themselves; they are animals, not having the Spirit.
1:20 kodwa wena, kakhulu othandekayo, ayakhayo kwenu ngenxa yenu nokholo olungcwele, ethandaza ngoMoya oyiNgcwele,
1:21 enothi nakuzigcina nihleli eluthandweni lukaThixo, kwaye silindele inceba yeNkosi yethu uYesu Kristu, kuse ebomini obungunaphakade.
1:22 ke ngokuqinisekile, ukuba ubakhalimele, emva kokuba egwetyiwe.
1:23 kodwa ngokwenene, abasindise, wambamba kwabo emlilweni. Kwaye ube nenceba kwabanye: wesaba, niyithiya into yenyama, nengubo inqambi.
1:24 ke, kuye lowo unamandla ukukugcina ukhululekile esonweni ukuze animise, ngomumo, Inamandla, phambi kobuqaqawuli bakhe ngenxa yokufika kweNkosi yethu uYesu Kristu,
1:25 ukuba kuphela uThixo, uMsindisi wethu, ngaye u-Yesu Kristu iNkosi yethu: kuye makubekho uzuko ke nobungangamela, amandla negunya, phambi yonke iminyaka, kwaye ngoku, kwaye kuyo yonke iminyaka, phakade. Amen.
