EZEKIEL 34:23

5. Mɛni ji ajenu lɛ mli otii komɛi?

Ajenu lɛ mli otii komɛi nɛ: “Okropɔŋ wulu” ko ku tseneduru tso ko yiteŋ tso ni etsɛ̃ lɛ ni eyadu “yɛ jarayelɔi lɛ amaŋ lɛ mli.” Kɛkɛ ni okropɔŋ lɛ kɔ “shikpɔŋ lɛ nɔ dumɔwui lɛ eko” ni eyadu yɛ shikpɔŋ kpakpa nɔ “yɛ nui babaoo ahe.” Dumɔwu lɛ kwɛ̃ ni eda ni ebatsɔ ‘wain tso ni lɛɛ shi.’ No sɛɛ lɛ, “okropɔŋ wulu” ni ji enyɔ nɔ ba.

7. Mɛni wɔbaanyɛ wɔkase yɛ ajenu ni ji gbalɛ lɛ mli?

7 Mɛni wɔbaanyɛ wɔkase yɛ ajenu ni ji gbalɛ lɛ mli? Klɛŋklɛŋ lɛ, akɛ anɔkwa jálɔi lɛ, esa akɛ wɔye wɔwiemɔ nɔ.

Ebaaku tso ko ni etsɛ̃ lɛ ‘kɛjɛ tseneduru tso ni kwɔ lɛ yiteŋ ni ebaayadu yɛ gɔŋ ko ni kwɔ gojoo nɔ.’ Tso ni etsɛ̃ nɛɛ baada ni ebaatsɔ “tseneduru tso wulu” ni “loofɔji srɔtoi fɛɛ” baahi nɔ. Kɛkɛ lɛ, “ŋa nɔ tsei lɛ fɛɛ” baaná ale akɛ Yehowa diɛŋtsɛ hã tso wulu nɛɛ da jogbaŋŋ nakai lɛ.

10 Bɔ ni fee ni gbalɛ lɛ ba mli. Yehowa jie e-Bi, Yesu Kristo kɛjɛ David (“tseneduru tso ni kwɔ lɛ”) maŋtsɛmɛi awekutɔkpãa lɛ mli ni eyadu lɛ yɛ mfonirifeemɔŋ Zion Gɔŋ (“gɔŋ ko ni kwɔ gojoo”) lɛ nɔ yɛ ŋwɛi. (Lala 2:6; Yer. 23:5; Kpo. 14:1) No hewɔ lɛ, Yehowa wó e-Bi lɛ ni ehenyɛlɔi lɛ buɔ lɛ akɛ “mɔ ni bɛ nɔ ko mli kwraa yɛ hii ateŋ lɛ” nɔ kɛtsɔ “etsɛ David maŋtsɛ sɛi lɛ” ni ekɛhã lɛ lɛ nɔ. (Dan. 4:17; Luka 1:32, 33) Tamɔ tseneduru tso wulu ji lɛ, Mesia Maŋtsɛyeli lɛ nɔ Maŋtsɛ, Yesu Kristo baajɛ ŋwɛi eye shikpɔŋ lɛ fɛɛ nɔ, ni ekɛ jɔɔmɔi baahã eshishi bii lɛ fɛɛ. Anɔkwa, mɔ nɛ ji Nɔyelɔ ni sa akɛ wɔkɛ wɔhiɛ afɔ̃ enɔ lɛ. Yɛ Yesu Maŋtsɛyeli lɛ shishi lɛ, adesai ni boɔ Nyɔŋmɔ toi lɛ ‘baahi shi shweshweeshwe, ni amɛsheŋ sane fɔŋ ko kwraa gbeyei.’​—Abɛi 1:33.

11. Mɛni wɔbaanyɛ wɔkase yɛ gbalɛ ni kɔɔ “tso ni etsɛ̃” ni batsɔ “tseneduru tso wulu lɛ” he lɛ mli?

Yehowa kɛɛ nɔyelɔ ni yitsoŋ wa lɛ akɛ abaajie ‘efai’ lɛ ni abaakpɔ ‘ekekere’ lɛ (nibii nɛɛ ji okadii ni tsɔɔ hewalɛ ni maŋtsɛ yɔɔ).
