Izwi rakava munhu
1Pakutanga Izwi rakanga riripo, Izwi rakanga riri kuna Mwari, Izwi rakanga riri Mwari. 2Irori pakutanga rakanga riri kuna Mwari. 3Zvinhu zvose zvakaitwa naye; kunze kwake hakuna kuitwa kunyange chinhu chimwe chakaitwa. 4Upenyu hwaiva maari; upenyu hwaiva chiedza chavanhu. 5Chiedza chinovhenekera murima; asi rima harina kugona kuchikunda.
6Kwakanga kune munhu akatumwa naMwari, zita rake rainzi Johani. 7Iye akauya kuzopupura, kuti apupurire chiedza, kuti vose vatende naye. 8Uyu akanga asati ari icho chiedza, asi akatumwa kuti apupurire chiedza. 9Ichi chaiva chiedza chechokwadi, chinovhenekera munhu mumwe nomumwe, pakusvika kwake panyika.
10Akanga ari panyika, asi nyika haina kumuziva. 11Akauya kunezvake, asi vanhu vake havana kumugamuchira. 12Asi vose vakamugamuchira, akavapa simba kuti vave vana vaMwari, ivavo vanotenda kuzita rake; 13avo vasina kuberekwa neropa, kana nokuda kwenyama, kana nokuda kwomurume, asi naMwari.
14Izwi rakazova munhu, rikagara pakati pedu, tikaona kubwinya kwake, kubwinya sokwowakaberekwa mumwechete wababa, azere nenyasha nechokwadi.
15Johani akamupupurira, akadanidzira, achiti, “Ndiye wandaireva, ndichiti, ‘Uyo, anouya shure kwangu, akavapo mberi kwangu; nokuti akanditangira.’ ”
16Nokuti pakuzara kwake isu tose takapiwa nyasha pamusoro penyasha.
17Nokuti murayiro wakapiwa naMosesi, nyasha nechokwadi zvakauya naJesu Kristu. 18Hakuna munhu akatongoona Mwari; mwanakomana akabereka ari mumwe oga, ari pachifuva chababa, ndiye akamuzivisa isu.
