5 Ombeibela i tja ovarumendu va sokutjinda ovakazendu vawo otja Jesus tje tjinda ovahongewa ve.

Ovarumendu ve sokusuvera ovakazendu vawo otja tjinga ava suvera otutu twawo oveni. Omurumendu ngwa suvera omukazendu we we risuvera omuini. Nu kapeya ninga omundu ngwa tondere orutu rwe omuini.

(Johanes 13:1; 15:13) Momuano tjingewo, ovarumendu mave tunduzwa kutja: “Suvereye ovakazendu veṋu, nu amu kara nombeze ku wo.” (Ovakolose 3:19) Otjikeṋa tji matji vatere omurumendu okuṱakamisa erakiza ndi, nu tjinene indu omukazendu we otuveze tjiva tji ma tjiti oviṋa nokuhina okuripura? Eye ma sokuzemburuka kutja eye wina u tataiza nu kutja ma isirwe ozondataiziro ze, eye ma sokuisira imba mbe mu tjiti ouvi, nu ihi matji kamburire mo omukazendu we.

Okutara kotjihorera tjimwe, indu owo tji va urirwe eye wa tja: “Ngatu yende koṋa ku matu kakara atuyerike peke, eṋe mu kasuve kaṱiṱi.” (Markus 6:30-32) Ovarumendu wina va sokuripurira kovakazendu vawo nokurikendera wo. Ombeibela i tja owo “ovandu ovingundi,” nu ovarumendu ku ve sokuyandja “ondengero.” Omena ratjike tji mave sokutjita nao? Orondu ovarumendu novakazendu mave pewa “otjiyandjewa tjomuinyo waaruhe” pu pe ṱeki. (1 Petrus 3:7) Ovarumendu mave sokutjiwa kutja ouṱakame ombu tjita kutja omundu ma rire omuingona ku Mukuru, nungwari kakongwi kutja eye omurumendu poo omukazendu.—Epsalme 101:6.

(Omiano 5:15-21; Ovaheberi 13:4)  Ihi mave tji yenenisa indu auhe wawo tje hi nakuripurira ku ye omuini nungwari tji me rikendere kozonḓero zomukwawo.

Nungwari eye u ru parura ne ru hungu.’ Ovarumendu mave sokusuvera ovakazendu vawo tjimuna tji ve ri suvera oveni, amave tjiwa kutja ve nomerizirira ku Jesus Kristus, ngu ri otjiuru tjawo.—Ovaefese 5:29; 1 Ovakorinte 11:3.

(Johanes 20:1, 11-13, 16) Nu ovakazendu ve zera orusuvero orupore okuza kovarumendu vawo.

Eye ka sokunyengurisa omurumendu we poo okuhongorera po eṱunḓu. Omukazendu ma sokutjiwa kutja ombepo ondarazu nu ndja pora ootjiṋa otjinanḓengu tjinene ku Mukuru.

Ombeibela komurungu mai tja: ‘Omukazendu auhe nga yozike omurumendu we.’ (Ovaefese 5:33) Nu indu omurumendu tje hi nakuyakura Kristus otjotjiuru  tje, omukazendu ma tjiti vi? Ombeibela mai tunduza ovakazendu kutja: ‘Mwa sokuriwisa kehi yovarumendu veṋu, kokutja tji pe na tjiva vawo mbe ha kambura membo raNdjambi, omeritjindiro weṋu ye ve kotore kongamburiro. Kamaa rire ohepero eṋe okuhungira embo, owo tjinga amave munu kutja omeritjindiro weṋu owo omakohoke nu ye nondira.’—1 Petrus 3:1, 2.

Nu nandarire kutja Abraham kena pa itavera indu omukazendu we Sara tja yandja oumune we ohunga nouzeu mbu va ri nawo meṱunḓu, Mukuru we mu raera kutja: “Tjita atjihe Sara tji me ku raere.” (Genesis 21:9-12) Indu omurumendu tja toora ondyero ndji hi nakuvetasana oviuru noveta yaMukuru, omukazendu we ma sokuriwisa kehi ye ne mu pe oruvara.—Oviungura 5:29; Ovaefese 5:24.

13 Pe novingi omukazendu mbi ma yenene okutjita okuyenenisa otjiungura tje tjokuṱakamisa eṱunḓu re. Okutara kotjihorera, Ombeibela mai raisa kutja ovakazendu mba kupwa ve ‘sokusuvera ovarumendu novanatje vawo, okukara nozondunge noukohoke, nokutja ve rire ovakazendu ovahirona mozoyawo mbu mave u kehi yovarumendu vawo.’ (Titus 2:4, 5) Omukazendu poo ina ngu tjita nai ma munu orusuvero orukarerere nondengero okuza keṱunḓu re. (Omiano 31:10, 28) Mena rokutja orukupo omawanekero wovandu vevari mbe he ri ohomonena, mape ya ape kara ovitjitwa nongaro ombi ndji mape ya ai tjiti kutja ve haṋike poo ve teye orukupo. Ombeibela i yandjera ovandu okuhaṋika kehi yozongaro tjiva. Nungwari omahaṋikiro kaye sokuvarwa otjotjiṋa tjakauriri, orondu Ombeibela mai tu rongo kutja: “Omukazendu ke nokusokuhaṋika nomurumendu  we. . . . Nomurumendu wina a ha isa omukazendu we.” (1 Ovakorinte 7:10, 11) Oruvakiro porwarwo eepu ariyerike romOmatjangwa ndi yandjera ovandu okuteya orukupo.—Mateus 19:9.

OTJIHORERA OTJISEMBA KOVANENE

14. Jesus ovanatje ee ve tjindi vi, nu ovanatje ve hepa tjike okuza kovanene vawo?

14 Jesus wa yandja otjihorera otjisemba kovanene momuano eye mbwaa tjindi ovanatje. Indu ovandu varwe tjaave kondjisa okutjaera ounatje okuya ku Jesus, eye wa tja: “U eseye ounatje u ye ku Ami, nu amu u tjaere.” Ombeibela mai tja, okuzambo eye “wa pukata imbwi ounatje, a yambeke omake ku wo nu e u sere ondaya.” (Markus 10:13-16) Ndoovazu Jesus aa twapo oruveze rwokukara pu nounatje, ihi katji sokukuhinga okutjita omuano tjingewo kovanatje voye ovazandu novakazona? Owo ve hepa oruveze rwoye oruingi tjinene. Ove mo sokutwapo oruveze rwokuvehonga, orondu imbyo Jehova ombya rakiza ovanene okutjita.—Deuteronomium 6:4-9.

Jesus kena pe ve pindikira, nungwari wa kondja okuvevyuura norusuvero, nokuvepa otjihorera.

Ouatjiri, kutja owo ve hepa okurongwa, nungwari omaronga maye sokuyandjwa “osemba” nu kaye sokuyandjwa momazenge. Ove ko nakusokuhungira omambo omatwe, nge “tuvakaṋa tjimuna engaruvyo.” (Jeremia 30:11; Omiano 12:18) Omavyuuriro maye sokuyandjwa momuano wokutja omuatje kombunda tjiri ma kamune ounahepero womaronga ngo.—Ovaefese 6:4; Ovaheberi 12:9-11.

Eye wa tja: “Mbi hungira omambo nga porwawo Tate nge Ndji honga.” Okuzambo wa weza na tja: “Tjinga aruhe ambi tjita imbi mbi tjata ku Ye.” (Johanes 8:28, 29) Jesus wa ri nonḓuviro ku Ihe womeyuru, nu Ombeibela i raera ovanatje kutja ngave zuve kovanene vawo. (Ovaefese 6:1-3) Nandarire kutja Jesus wa ri omuatje ohomonena, eye wa ri nonḓuviro kovanene ve, ooJosef na Maria, mbe ha ri ohomonena. Itjo tjiri tja eta ombwiro ku avehe meṱunḓu raJesus!—Lukas 2:4, 5, 51, 52.

Otjingaperi kutja otuveze tjiva kaupupu kovanatje okukara nonḓuviro kovanene vawo, nungwari ihi ootjiṋa Mukuru tje undjira ko ku wo. (Omiano 1:8; 6:20) Jesus aruhe wa ri nonḓuviro ku Ihe womeyuru nandarire kehi yozongaro ozonḓeu tjinene. Otjikando tjimwe, indu Mukuru tja vanga kutja Jesus ma tjite otjiṋa otjizeu tjinene, Jesus wa tja: “Isa po otjinwino tjomihihamo hi pu Ami.” Nakombanda yanao, Jesus wa tjita imbi Mukuru mbyaa undjire ko ku ye, orondu eye wa  muna kutja Ihe ma tjiwa mbi ri oviwaviwa oruveze ndwo.
