Shikpɔŋ Lɛ Nɔ Paradeiso​—Lamɔ Ko Kɛkɛ Aloo Anɔkwa Sane?

Paradeiso! Kɛ́ wɔna hei ni yɔɔ fɛo yɛ magazin srɔtoi amli kɛ TV nɔ lɛ, ehãa wɔshweɔ akɛ wɔya hei ni yɔɔ fɛo ni tamɔ “paradeiso” nɛɛ ni wɔyajɔɔ wɔhe koni wɔhiɛ akpa wɔnaagbai lɛ anɔ. Shi wɔle akɛ kɛ́ wɔku wɔsɛɛ wɔtee shĩa lɛ, wɔbaayanina nibii bɔ ni wɔshi dani wɔtee lɛ nɔŋŋ.

Fɛɛ sɛɛ lɛ, shwelɛ ni wɔyɔɔ akɛ wɔhi paradeiso shihilɛ mli lɛ mli wa waa. Enɛ hãa wɔbiɔ akɛ: ‘Ani “paradeiso” ji susumɔ ko ni yɔɔ miishɛɛ kɛkɛ? Kɛ́ nakai ni lɛ, mɛni hewɔ wɔmii shɛɔ wɔhe waa kɛ́ wɔnu ni atsĩ paradeiso tã lɛ? Ani ebaanyɛ eba mli be ko?’

SUSUMƆI NI MƐI ENÁ YƐ PARADEISO HE

Yɛ afii ohai abɔ ni eho lɛ mli fɛɛ lɛ, mɛi amii shɛɔ amɛhe kɛ́ amɛnu ni aawie paradeiso he. Yɛ mɛi babaoo gbɛfaŋ lɛ, be ni amɛkane yɛ Biblia lɛ mli akɛ, “trom yɛ Eden yɛ bokagbɛ” lɛ, amɛmii shɛ amɛhe. Mɛni hã nakai abɔɔ lɛ fee he ko ni yɔɔ miishɛɛ waa lɛ? Biblia lɛ kɛɔ akɛ: “Yehowa Nyɔŋmɔ hã tsei fɛɛ ni kɛ́ akwɛ ni aaaba mɔ tsine ni amɛhi hã yeli hu kwɛ̃ kɛjɛ shikpɔŋ sũ lɛŋ.” Nakai abɔɔ lɛ ji he ko ni yɔɔ fɛo ní jɛmɛ shihilɛ ŋɔɔ. Nɔ ni sa kadimɔ fe fɛɛ lɛ ji akɛ, no mli lɛ “wala tso lɛ yɛ trom lɛ teŋ.”​—1 Mose 2:8, 9.

Kɛfata he lɛ, Mose Klɛŋklɛŋ Wolo lɛ wie fai ejwɛ komɛi ni hoɔ kɛtsɔɔ abɔɔ lɛ mli lɛ he. Kɛbashi ŋmɛnɛ lɛ, ale fai nɛɛ ateŋ enyɔ lolo​—Hidekel (loo Tigris) kɛ Eufrate. (1 Mose 2:10-14) Fai enyɔ nɛɛ hoɔ kɛyaa Persia Ŋshɔnine lɛ mli kɛtsɔɔ ŋmɛnɛŋmɛnɛ Iraq, ní be ko ni eho lɛ efata blema Persia he lɛ.

Eyɛ faŋŋ akɛ, shikpɔŋ lɛ nɔ paradeiso lɛ fata Persiabii lɛ ayinɔsane he. Yɛ Philadelphia Museum of Art ni yɔɔ Pennsylvania, yɛ U.S.A. lɛ, Persia kapɛt ko ni afee yɛ afi 1500 afii lɛ amli ni atɛŋ abɔɔ ko ni afo he, ni tsei kɛ fɔfɔi yɛ mli lɛ yɛ jɛmɛ.

NƆ NI TSƆƆ AKƐ SHIKPƆŊ MUU LƐ FƐƐ BAATSƆ PARADEISO

Yehowa Nyɔŋmɔ, ni ji mɔ ni fee klɛŋklɛŋ Paradeiso lɛ ewo shi akɛ, ekɛ Paradeiso ni laaje lɛ baaba ekoŋŋ. Mɛɛ gbɛ nɔ ebaatsɔ efee nakai? Kaimɔ akɛ, Yesu tsɔɔ wɔ ni wɔsɔle akɛ: “O-Maŋtsɛyeli lɛ aba.
