Romans 7
Maori Bible
1Kahore 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? 2Ko 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. 3Na, 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.

4Heoi 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. 5I 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. 6Ko 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.

7Kia 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. 8Na, 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. 9I 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. 10Na, ko te kupu whakahau i meinga ra hei ora, kitea ketia ana tenei hei mate moku. 11Ka mau te hara ki tenei, ka whakawai hoki i ahau i runga i te kupu whakahau, nana ahau i mate ai. 12Ae ra, he tapu te ture, me te kupu whakahau ano he tapu, he tika, he pai.

13I 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.

14E matau ana hoki tatou no te wairua te ture: ko ahau ia no te kikokiko, kua hokona hei parau ma te hara. 15Ko 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. 16Ki te mahia ia e ahau taua mea kihai nei ahau i pai atu, e whakaae ana ahau ki te ture he pai. 17Ko tenei ehara i ahau i mahi, engari na te hara e noho nei i roto i ahau. 18E 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. 19Ko 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. 20Ki 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.

21Na, kua kitea e ahau te ture, ara kei te tata tonu te kino ki ahau e hiahia nei kia mea i te pai. 22E ahuareka ana hoki ahau ki te ture a te Atua, ara to roto tangata: 23Otira 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. 24Aue, te mate i ahau! ma wai ahau e whakaora i te tinana o tenei mate? 25Ma 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.
