Endagaano Enkadde nʼEndagaano Empya

Firemooni

Pawulo, omusibe wa Kristo Yesu, n’owooluganda Timoseewo, tuwandiikira ggwe Firemooni, mukozi munnaffe omwagalwa, ne Apofiya mwannyinaffe, ne Alukipo mulwanyi munnaffe, n’Ekkanisa yonna ekuŋŋaanira mu nnyumba yo.

Ekisa n’emirembe ebiva eri Katonda Kitaffe ne Mukama waffe Yesu Kristo bibeerenga nammwe.

Okusaba n’okwebaza

Bulijjo bwe mba nga nkusabira neebaza Katonda, kubanga buli kiseera mpulira nga bw’olina okwagala n’okukkiriza eri Mukama waffe Yesu n’eri abatukuvu bonna. Nsaba nti nga bw’ogenda otegeeza abantu okukkiriza kwo, nabo kubanyweze mu bulamu bwabwe, nga bategeerera ddala ebirungi byonna ebiri mu ffe ku bwa Kristo. Nsanyuka nnyo era ne nziramu amaanyi olw’okwagala kwo, kubanga emitima gy’abatukuvu giziddwa buggya ku lulwo owooluganda.

Pawulo yeegayiririra Onesimo

Noolwekyo newaakubadde era, nga nnina obuvumu mu Kristo, nga nandisobodde okukulagira okukola ekyo ky’osaanira okukola, naye okwagala kwange gy’oli kumpaliriza okukusaba obusabi, nze, Pawulo, kaakano akaddiye, era ali mu kkomera olwa Kristo Yesu; 10 nkwegayirira ku bikwata ku mwana wange Onesimo gwe nayamba okukkiriza Mukama waffe nga ndi mu njegere, mu busibe, 11 Onesimo oyo, gye buvuddeko ataali wa mugaso gy’oli, naye kaakano nga wa mugaso nnyo gye tuli ffembi, 12 gwe naaweereza gy’oli nga n’omutima gwange gujjirako, 13 oyo gwe nandyagadde okwesigaliza, ampeereze nga ndi mu busibe olw’enjiri, mu kifo kyo mwe wandibadde onnyambira, 14 naye ne saagala kukikola nga tonzikirizza. Saagala okole eky’ekisa olwokubanga oteekwa, wabula kikole lwa kweyagalira. 15 Kiyinzika okuba nga Onesimo yakwawukanako okumala akaseera, oluvannyuma alyoke abeere naawe ebbanga lyonna, 16 nga takyali muddu buddu, naye ng’asingako awo, ng’afuuse owooluganda omwagalwa ennyo, na ddala gye ndi. Kaakano ajja kubeera wa mugaso nnyo gy’oli mu mubiri ne mu Mukama waffe.

17 Obanga ddala ndi munno, mwanirize mu ngeri y’emu nga bwe wandinnyanirizza singa nze mbadde nzize. 18 Obanga waliwo ekintu ekibi kye yakukola, oba ekintu ky’omubanja, kimbalirweko. 19 Kino nkiwandiika mu mukono gwange nze, Pawulo, nti ndikusasula. Sijja kukugamba nti olina ebbanja lyange. 20 Munnange owooluganda, nkolera ekikolwa kino ekiraga okwagala, omutima gwange guddemu amaanyi mu Kristo. 21 Nkuwandiikidde ebbaluwa eno nga neesigira ddala nga kye nkusaba ojja kukikola n’okusingawo! 22 Nninayo n’ekirala kye nkusaba; nkusaba ontegekere we ndisula, kubanga nnina essuubi, nga Katonda okusaba kwammwe ajja kukuddamu anzikirize nkomewo gye muli.

25 Ekisa kya Mukama waffe Yesu Kristo kibeerenga n’omwoyo gwammwe.

King James Version

Philemon

Paul, a prisoner of Jesus Christ, and Timothy our brother, unto Philemon our dearly beloved, and fellowlabourer,

And to our beloved Apphia, and Archippus our fellowsoldier, and to the church in thy house:

Grace to you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

I thank my God, making mention of thee always in my prayers,

Hearing of thy love and faith, which thou hast toward the Lord Jesus, and toward all saints;

That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus.

For we have great joy and consolation in thy love, because the bowels of the saints are refreshed by thee, brother.

Wherefore, though I might be much bold in Christ to enjoin thee that which is convenient,

Yet for love's sake I rather beseech thee, being such an one as Paul the aged, and now also a prisoner of Jesus Christ.

10 I beseech thee for my son Onesimus, whom I have begotten in my bonds:

11 Which in time past was to thee unprofitable, but now profitable to thee and to me:

12 Whom I have sent again: thou therefore receive him, that is, mine own bowels:

13 Whom I would have retained with me, that in thy stead he might have ministered unto me in the bonds of the gospel:

14 But without thy mind would I do nothing; that thy benefit should not be as it were of necessity, but willingly.

15 For perhaps he therefore departed for a season, that thou shouldest receive him for ever;

16 Not now as a servant, but above a servant, a brother beloved, specially to me, but how much more unto thee, both in the flesh, and in the Lord?

17 If thou count me therefore a partner, receive him as myself.

18 If he hath wronged thee, or oweth thee ought, put that on mine account;

19 I Paul have written it with mine own hand, I will repay it: albeit I do not say to thee how thou owest unto me even thine own self besides.

20 Yea, brother, let me have joy of thee in the Lord: refresh my bowels in the Lord.

21 Having confidence in thy obedience I wrote unto thee, knowing that thou wilt also do more than I say.

22 But withal prepare me also a lodging: for I trust that through your prayers I shall be given unto you.

23 There salute thee Epaphras, my fellowprisoner in Christ Jesus;

24 Marcus, Aristarchus, Demas, Lucas, my fellowlabourers.

25 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.
