Chapter 7

1

  Kahore ano koutou kia matau, e oku teina, e korero ana hoki ahau ki te hunga matau ki te ture, hei rangatira te ture mo te tangata i te wa e ora ai ia?

2

 Ko te wahine whai tane hoki, e mau ana ano ia i te ture ki te tane i a ia e ora ana; ki te mate ia te tane, kua mawheto ia i te ture a te tane.

3

 Na, ki te riro ia i te tangata ke i tana tane e ora ana ano, ka kiia ia he wahine puremu: tena ka mate te tane, e atea ana a i te ture, ka kore ia e puremu ahakoa riro i te tangata ke.

4

 Heoi ko koutou ano hoki, e oku teina, kua meinga kia tupapaku ki te ture, na te tinana o te Karaiti; kia riro ai koutou i tetahi atu, ara i tera i whakaarahia i te hunga mate, kia whai hua ai tatou ki te Atua.

5

 I a tatou hoki i te kikokiko, e mahi ana nga hihiritanga o nga hara, e whakaohokia nei e te ture, i roto i o tatou wahi, a hua ake ko te mate.

6

 Ko tenei kua mawheto mai tatou i te ture, kua mate hoki tatou ki te mea i puritia ai tatou; no reira e mahi ana tatou i runga i te houtanga o te wairua, kahore i runga i te tawhitotanga o te kupu tuhituhi.

7

  Kia pehea ra he kupu ma tatou? He hara ranei te ture? Kahore rapea. Engari kihai ahau i matau ki te hara, me i kaua te ture: kahore hoki ahau i mohio ki te hiahia apo, me i kaua te ture te mea mai, Aua koe e hiahia apo.

8

 Na, ka mau te hara ki tenei, a ka mahi i nga hiahia apo katoa i roto i ahau, he mea na te ture. Ki te kore hoki te ture ka mate te hara.

9

 I ora hoki ahau i mua i te korenga o te ture: no te taenga mai ia o te kupu whakahau, ka ora ake te hara, a mate iho ahau.

10

 Na, ko te kupu whakahau i meinga ra hei ora, kitea ketia ana tenei hei mate moku.

11

 Ka mau te hara ki tenei, ka whakawai hoki i ahau i runga i te kupu whakahau, nana ahau i mate ai.

12

 Ae ra, he tapu te ture, me te kupu whakahau ano he tapu, he tika, he pai.

13

 I riro koia te mea pai hei mate moku? Kahore rapea. Engari na te hara i mea te mea pai hei mate moku, kia whakakitea ai he hara te hara; na ka ai te kupu whakahau hei mea kia tino nui noa atu.

14

  E matau ana hoki tatou no te wairua te ture: ko ahau ia no te kikokiko, kua hokona hei parau ma te hara.

15

 Ko taku hoki e mahi nei kahore e mohiotia iho e ahau: kahore hoki e mahia e ahau taku i pai ai; heoi ko taku i kino ai, meatia ana tenei e ahau.

16

 Ki te mahia ia e ahau taua mea kihai nei ahau i pai atu, e whakaae ana ahau ki te ture he pai.

17

 Ko tenei ehara i ahau i mahi, engari na te hara e noho nei i roto i ahau.

18

 E matau ana hoki ahau, kahore he mea pai e noho ana i roto i ahau, ara i roto i toku kikokiko: ko te hiahia hoki kei ahau, ko te mea ia i te pai kahore i ahau.

19

 Ko te pai hoki e hiahiatia ana e ahau, kahore e mahia e ahau: engari te kino kihai nei ahau i pai, mahia ana tenei e ahau.

20

 Ki te mahia ia e ahau taua mea pu kihai nei ahau i pai atu, ehara i ahau nana taua mea i mahi, engari na te hara e noho nei i roto i ahau.

21

 Na, kua kitea e ahau te ture, ara kei te tata tonu te kino ki ahau e hiahia nei kia mea i te pai.

22

 E ahuareka ana hoki ahau ki te ture a te Atua, ara to roto tangata:

23

 Otira kua kitea e ahau tetahi atu ture i roto i oku wahi, e whawhai ana ki te ture a toku hinengaro, e mea ana i ahau hei taurekareka ma te ture a te hara, ma tenei i roto nei i oku wahi.

24

 Aue, te mate i ahau! ma wai ahau e whakaora i te tinana o tenei mate?

25

 Ma te Atua! E whakawhetai tonu ana ahau ki a ia i runga i a Ihu Karaiti, i to tatou Ariki. Na, e mahi ana ahau ano nei, ara, toku hinengaro, ki te ture a te Atua, ko toku kikokiko ia ki te ture a te hara.
