King James Version

1 Peter 3:1-22

1Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives; 2While they behold your chaste conversation coupled with fear. 3Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel; 4But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price. 5For after this manner in the old time the holy women also, who trusted in God, adorned themselves, being in subjection unto their own husbands: 6Even as Sara obeyed Abraham, calling him lord: whose daughters ye are, as long as ye do well, and are not afraid with any amazement. 7Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered. 8Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous: 9Not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing. 10For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile: 11Let him eschew evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and ensue it. 12For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil.

13And who is he that will harm you, if ye be followers of that which is good? 14But and if ye suffer for righteousness’ sake, happy are ye: and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled; 15But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear: 16Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ. 17For it is better, if the will of God be so, that ye suffer for well doing, than for evil doing. 18For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit: 19By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison; 20Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water. 21The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ: 22Who is gone into heaven, and is on the right hand of God; angels and authorities and powers being made subject unto him.

Abakyala ne ba bbaabwe

Kale obanga mwagala okuba bawala ba Saala, mubenga ba mpisa nnungi, olwo tewaabengawo kibatiisa kyonna.

73:7 Bef 5:25-33Nammwe abasajja abafumbo, mutegeere nga bakazi bammwe banafu, noolwekyo mubakwatenga n’obwegendereza. Era mubassengamu ekitiibwa nga mumanyi nga nabo Katonda alibaweera wamu nammwe, obulamu obutaggwaawo. Bwe munaakolanga bwe mutyo okusaba kwammwe tekuziyizibwenga.

Okubonyaabonyezebwa olw’Okukola Ebituufu

83:8 a Bar 12:10 b 1Pe 5:5Eky’enkomerero, mwenna mubenga n’emmeeme emu, buli omu alumirirwenga munne, era mwagalanenga ng’abooluganda ddala, mubenga ba kisa era beetoowaze. 93:9 a Bar 12:17 b 1Pe 2:23 c 1Pe 2:21 d Beb 6:14Temuwooleranga ggwanga. Abavumye, mmwe temumuvumanga. Wabula mumusabirenga mukisa, kubanga ekyo kye mwayitirwa, mulyoke muweebwe omukisa. 10Kubanga ekyawandiikibwa kigamba nti,

“Ayagala okufuna obulamu n’okubeera mu ddembe,

aziyizenga olulimi lwe okwogera ekibi,

n’emimwa gye

okwogera ebyobukuusa.

11Era yeewalenga okukola ebibi, akolenga ebirungi.

Anoonyenga emirembe era atambulirenga mu gyo.

123:12 Zab 34:12-16Kubanga abatuukirivu Mukama abatunuulira n’ekisa,

n’amatu ge gawuliriza bye basaba.

Kyokka aboonoonyi abatunuuliza bukambwe.”

133:13 Nge 16:7Bwe munaafubanga okukola ekituufu, ani anaabakolanga akabi? 143:14 a 1Pe 2:19, 20 b Is 8:12, 13Naye era ne bwe munaabonyaabonyezebwanga olw’obutuukirivu, mulina omukisa. “Temutya bye batya; temutekemuka.” 153:15 Bak 4:6Mutyenga Mukama waffe Kristo mu mitima gyammwe. Era bulijjo mubenga beetegefu okuddamu buli ababuuza okunnyonnyola essuubi lyammwe, 163:16 a Beb 13:18 b 1Pe 2:12, 15era muddengamu n’obuwombeefu, awamu n’eggonjebwa. Mubenga ba mutima mulungi, abo ababavuma era ababoogerako ekibi olw’empisa zammwe ennungi olw’okuba nga muli ba Kristo, balyoke baswale. 173:17 a 1Pe 2:15 b 1Pe 2:20Okubonyaabonyezebwanga olw’okukola obulungi, bwe kuba nga kwe kusiima kwa Katonda, kusinga okubonyaabonyezebwa olw’okukola ekibi. 183:18 a 1Pe 2:21 b Bak 1:22; 1Pe 4:1 c 1Pe 4:6Kubanga ddala Kristo yabonyaabonyezebwa olw’ebibi omulundi gumu, Omuntu Omutuukirivu ku lw’abatali batuukirivu, alyoke abaleete eri Katonda bwe yattibwa mu mubiri, kyokka n’abeera mulamu mu mwoyo. 193:19 1Pe 4:6Era omwoyo gwe, gwe gwagenda okubuulira Enjiri emyoyo egyali mu kkomera. 203:20 a Lub 6:3, 5, 13, 14 b Beb 11:7Egyo gy’emyoyo egy’abo edda abaagaana okuwulira Katonda ng’akyabagumiikiriza, mu kiseera Nuuwa kye yazimbiramu eryato, abantu abatono, omunaana gwokka, mwe baawonyezebwa amazzi. 213:21 a Tit 3:5 b 1Pe 1:3Amazzi ago gaali kabonero ak’okubatizibwa mulyoke mulokolebwe kaakano. Kubanga okubatizibwa tekitegeeza kunaazibwako kko lya mubiri, wabula kitegeeza kwewaayo eri Katonda nga tumaliridde okukola by’ayagala, ng’atuwadde omutima omulongoofu olw’okuzuukira kwa Yesu Kristo, 223:22 a Mak 16:19 b Bar 8:38eyalinnya mu ggulu era atudde ku mukono ogwa ddyo ogwa Katonda, ng’afuga bamalayika n’aboobuyinza, n’abaamaanyi ab’omu ggulu.
