Kapena kuti ndinkaganiza ngati mwa dziko lapansi; kuti ndikhoza kumanena kuti, “Inde, Inde,” nthawi yomweyo nʼkumatinso “Ayi, Ayi?”

18 Koma zoona monga Mulungu ali wokhulupirika, uthenga wathu kwa inu siwakuti, “Inde” nʼkutinso “Ayi.” 19 Pakuti Yesu Khristu mwana wa Mulungu amene ine, Silivano ndi Timoteyo tinamulalikira pakati panu sali “Inde” yemweyonso “Ayi.” Koma nthawi zonse mwa Iye muli “Inde.” 20 Pakuti ngakhale malonjezo a Mulungu atachuluka chotani, onsewo ndi “Inde” mwa Khristu. Kotero kuti mwa Iye, ife timati “Ameni” kuchitira Mulungu ulemu. 21 Tsono ndi Mulungu amene anachititsa kuti inu ndi ife tiyime molimba mwa Khristu. Anatidzoza ife, 22 nayikanso Mzimu wake mʼmitima mwathu kutitsimikizira za mʼtsogolo.
