 Mbela Eendombwedi daJehova ohadi lombwele ovanhu vaha dane omafiku onhumba?

Ahowe. Oda itavela kutya omunhu keshe oku na okuninga omatokolo kuye mwene. (Josua 24:15) Eendombwedi daJehova ohadi ‘fimaneke ovanhu vomaludi aeshe,’ kashi na nee mbudi kutya ove li melongelokalunga lilipi. — 1 Petrus 2:17.
