ITAKUFAIDI NINI?

OF WHAT BENEFIT WILL IT BE - FOR YOU TO GAIN THE WHOLE WORLD AND LOSE YOUR SOUL? (MATTHEW 16:26.)

 

Itakufaidi nini, ewe mwanadamu, kiupata ulimwengu wote; 

Hatimaye upoteze, hiyo nafsi yako, itakufaidi nini? 

Nauliza hebu n’ambie.

 

Majumba ya kupendeza

Pesa tele mabenkini

Elimu unayo tele, kaka we;

Itakufaidi nini,

Mwisho wewe kaburini, itakufaidi nini?

Nauliza hebu n’ambie.

 

Jina zuri uko nalo, duniani wasifika.  Sura, cheo, mamlaka, rafiki we; 

Itakufaidi nini?

Mbinguni hufahamiki,

Itakufaidi nini?

Nauliza hebu n’ambie.

 

English Translation

 

Of what benefit will it be to you

to gain the whole world

and to lose your soul?

I am posing to you this question. 

Please answer me? 

 

You own beautiful houses

and have lots of money in banks

you are highly educated my brother.

What will it profit you?

if in the end, eternal death awaits you?

I am posing to you this question. 

Please answer me? 

 

 

You have a good reputation

You are praised all over the world

You have the looks, the good job and the status

What will it profit you?

In heave, you are unknown

I am posing to you this question. 

Please answer me?
