James 4Maori Bible (MAORI)

No hea nga pakanga me nga ngangaretanga i roto i a koutou? he teka ianei no tenei, no o koutou hiahia e whawhai ana i roto i o koutou wahi?

E hiahia ana koutou, heoi kahore e whai rawa; e patu ana koutou, e minamina ana, a kahore e whiwhi: e ngangare ana, e whawhai ana, heoi kahore e whai rawa, no te mea kahore koutou e inoi.

E inoi ana koutou, a kahore e riro i a koutou, no te mea e inoi he ana koutou, kia whakapaua ai ki o koutou hiahia.

E nga tangata puremu, e nga wahine puremu, kahore ianei koutou e matau ko te aroha o te ao he hoariritanga ki te Atua? Na, ko te tangata e hiahia ana kia meinga hei hoa aroha mo te ao, e mea ana i a ia hei hoariri ki te Atua.

Ki to koutou whakaaro he korero noa ranei ta te karaipiture, E hiahia ana ranei te wairua, i meinga nei e ia kia noho i roto i a tatou, kia tae rawa ki te hae?

Nui atu ia tana homai i te aroha noa: koia tana e mea nei, Ka pakeke te Atua ki ta te hunga whakapehapeha, ka homai ia i te aroha noa ki te hunga ngakau papaku.

Na, kia ngohengohe koutou ki ta te Atua. Turia atu te rewera, a ka oma atu ia i a koutou.

Whakatata atu ki te Atua, a ka whakatata mai ia ki a koutou. Horoia o koutou ringaringa, e te hunga hara: meinga o koutou ngakau kia hekore, e te hunga ngakau rua.

Kia pouri koutou, kia puta te aue, te tangi: kia puta ke to koutou kata hei aue, to koutou hari hei ahua whakapoururu.

10 Whakapapaku koutou ki te aroaro o te Ariki, a mana koutou e whakateitei ake.

11 Kati te ngautuara tetahi ki tetahi, e oku teina, Ko te tangata e ngautuara ana ki tona teina, e whakahe ana hoki i tona teina, e ngautuara ana ia ki te ture, e whakahe ana i te ture: ki te whakahe ia koe i te ture, ehara koe i te kaimahi i te tu re, engari he kaiwhakawa.

12 Kotahi tonu te kaiwhakatakoto ture, kei a ia te kaha hei whakaora, hei whakangaro: ko wai ra koe e whakahe na i tera atu?

13 Tena, e te hunga e mea nei, hei aianei, hei apopo, ka haere matou ki te pa ra, a ka noho ki reira, kia kotahi tau, ka hokohoko, ka whiwhi ki te taonga:

14 Kahore na hoki koutou e matau ki nga mea o apopo. He aha oti to koutou ora? He kohu ra, he iti nei te wa e puta mai ai, a kua memeha atu.

15 Te mea ra koutou, Ki te pai te Ariki, a ka ora matou, ka mea i tenei mea, i tera mea ranei.

16 Tenei ia koutou te whakamanamana nei ki a koutou kupu whakaputa: he kino taua tu whakamanamana katoa.

17 Na, ko te tangata e matau ana ki te mea i te pai, a kahore e meatia e ia he hara tera nona.
