1Ukufumafye ku citendekelo, Lishiwi eko ali. Lishiwi ali pamo na Lesa. Kabili Lishiwi ali ni Lesa. 2Lishiwi ali pamo na Lesa ukufumafye ku citendekelo. 3Ni kuli Lishiwi Lesa abumbile ifintu fyonse. Tapaba nelyo cimo ico Lesa abumba ukwabula Lishiwi. 4Muli Lishiwi mwaba umweo, noyu mweo waba ulubuuto ku bantu. 5Ulubuuto lusanika mu mfifi, pantu imfifi yalifilwa ukulushimya.
6Lesa atumine umuntu, ishina lyakwe ni Yoani. 7Yoani epakwisa nga kambone, pakuti apeele bukambone pa lubuuto. Epakuti bonse abalemumfwa basumine. 8Yoani wena tali lubuuto.

14Awe Lishiwi aishile aluka umuntu. Aisa ikala na ifwe. Twalimona ubucindami bwakwe. Ubucindami bwa Mwana uwabafye umo mpo, ubo apoka ukufuma kuli Wishi. Alikwatisha icikuuku ne cishinka.
15Yoani alimwiminine bukambone ilyo alebila ati, “Euyu naleeba nati, uukankonka panuma, alicila ine. Pantu ine nshilabako ninshi wena eko aba!”
16Nico wacikuuku nganshi eco na ifwe bonse tushukilako amapaalo na mapaalo. 17Mose ewaletele amafunde, lelo icikuuku ne cishinka fyena ni Yesu Kristu ewaleta. 18Takwaba nangu umo uwatala amona Lesa, kanofye Mwane umo mpo, Lesa wine uwikala mu ceni cakwa Wishi, ewaisa musokolola.
Yoani akaana ati nshili Kristu
(Mateo 3:1-12; Mako 1:1-8; Luka 3:1-18)
19Ubu e bukambone bwakwa Yoani. Abayuda ba mu Yerusalemu batile ilyo batuma bashimapepo na bena Levi kuli Yoani, baisa kukumwipusha abati, “Bushe niwe ani?” 20Yoani tafishile, ayasukafye apabuuta tuutu ati, “Ine nshili Kristu.” 21#Amaf 18:15,18; Mala 4:5Elyo bamwipusha abati, “Kanshi niwe ani? Bushe niwe Eliya?” Yoani ati, “Awe ine tene.” “Bushe niwe ulya kasesema?” Yoani abasuka ati, “Awe iyoo.” 22Kabili bamwipusha abati, “Kanshi niwe ani? Tuli nokuya eba abatutumine ifyo uleyasuka. Nga kanshi we mwine uletila niwe ani?” 23#Esaya 40:3Yoani ayasuka ati, “Ngomo kasesema Esaya alandile,
“‘Nine shiwi lya ulebilikisha mu matololo lileti,
lungamikeni inshila umwakupita Imfumu.’”
24Nomba Abafalise nabo batumako inkombe.#1:24 Nomba Abafalise nabo batumako inkombe: Ba Baibele bamo batila, “Nomba pali abo abatuminwe pali na Bafalise.” 25Inkombe shaipusha Yoani ashiti, “Nga kanshi cinshi ico ubatishisha nga tauli Kristu nangu Eliya nangu ulya kasesema?” 26Yoani abasuka ati, “Ine mbatisha ku menshi. Nomba apo muli palipo umo uo mushishibe. 27Akesa panuma yandi. Elyo ine nshilingile no kukakula inshinga sha ndyato shakwe.”
28Ifi fyonse fyacitike mu Betani uko Yoani alebatisha, lubali lwa kwishilya lya mumana wa Yordani.

Alicindama ukuncila. Pantu ine nshilati mbeko ninshi wena eko aba.’ 31Na ine wine nshamwishibe. Lelo umulandu naishile kukubatisha na menshi, ni pakuti asokoloke ku bena Israeli.”

Lelo uwantumine kukubatisha ku menshi, anjebele ati, ‘Uo ukamona Mupashi amwikila, aisa ikalilila pali ena, uyo eukalabatisha kuli Mupashi.’ 34Ee, naliimwena no kushininkisha ukuti, uyu e Mwana wakwa Lesa.”

Abepusha ati, “Cinshi mulefwaya?” Bamwasuka abati, “Rabi, (emukutila ‘Kafundisha,’) bushe ni kwi wikala?” 39Nao Yesu abasuka ati, “Iseni, mumone!” Awe nabo baya mona uko aleikala.

Ala ni Yesu wa ku Nasaleti, mwana Yosefu.” 46Natanaeli amweba ati, “Bushe ku Nasaleti nako kuti kwafuma icintu icisuma?” Filipo amwasuka ati, “Isa, so imwene.”
47Yesu cilya amona Natanaeli uko aleisa, alamulandapo ati, “Ala uyu e mwina Israeli wine wine uushaba na bufi.” 48Natanaeli epakwipusha Yesu ati, “Nga mwanjishiba shani?” Yesu amwasuka ati, “Nacikumona lilya wali wikele mwisamba lya mukunyu ninshi Filipo talati akwite.” 49Natanaeli amwasuka ati, “Kafundisha, uli Mwana wakwa Lesa, uli Mfumu ya bena Israeli!” 50Yesu amwasuka ati, “Bushe wasumina icofye nakweba ati, ‘Nacikumona mwisamba lya mukunyu?’ Ala ukamona ifintu ifyacila pali ici.” 51#Icite 28:12Elyo alundapo ati, “Ndemweba icine cine, mukamona umulu wacenama, na bamalaika bakwa Lesa balenina no kwika apali Umwana wa muntu!”
