Nale otwa li hatu ifanwa Ovakonakoni vOmbibeli, ndele mOsoondaxa mo 26 Juli 1931, ovapwilikini aveshe ovo va li poshoongalele osho ova li va dimina va kale hava ifanwa Eendombwedi daJehova. Kasha li tuu shitunhula okulukwa edina la dja mOmbibeli! (Lesha Jesaja 43:12.)

Paulus okwa li a lombwela eongalo shi na sha naasho Jesus a li e mu honga kombinga yOuvalelo wOmwene.

JEHOVA OKWA AMENA OMBIBELI

9-11. Jehova okwa li a amena ngahelipi Ombibeli iha hanaunwe po?

9 Ovanhu ova kala tava kendabala neenghono okuhanauna po Ombibeli, ndele Jehova okwe i amena.

Ongeleka yaKatolika oya ka ya olunyala moshinima osho mo 1559 eshi omupapa Paul IV a li a popya kutya hamunhu a pilinda Ombibeli ile a kale e i na melaka olo ha udu nopehe na epitikilo lOngeleka.

10 Nonande ovanhu ova kala tava kendabala okuhanauna po Ombibeli, Jehova okwe i amena. Mo 1382, John Wycliffe navakwao ova li va toloka Ombibeli oshikando shotete mOshiingilisha. William Tyndale naye okwa li a toloka Ombibeli mOshiingilisha, ndele ta dipawa mo 1536. Okwa li a mangelwa kopala, ndele ta ingida ta ti: “Omwene, pashula omesho ohamba yaEngland.” Opo nee okwa li a pondwa ndele ta xwikwa po.

Okwa li a longifa oitukulwa yOmbibeli imwe oyo ya tolokwa kuTyndale, nokwa li a toloka imwe a kufa mOshilatina nomOmbibeli yaMartin Luther yOshindowishi. Kunena, otwa hafa eshi tu na etoloko lOmbibeli yo-New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures, molwaashi ola yela nawa, oli li paushili nolipu okulongifa moilonga yokuudifa. Kape na nande oumwe a dula okuhanauna po Ombibeli, kutya nee oSatana ile ovanhu.

13. Otu shi shii ngahelipi kutya ovanhu ova kala ve shii edina laKalunga okudja nalenale?

13 Ovanhu votete, Adam naEva, ova li ve shii edina laJehova nova li have li longifa. Noa naye okwa li he li longifa. Okwa ti: “[Jehova, NW] Kalunga kaSem na nangekwe noupuna.” (Gen. 4:1; 9:26) Kalunga naye okwa li ha longifa edina laye ngeenge ta popi novanhu. Kalunga okwa ti: “Aame [Jehova, NW], olo edina lange, ihandi yandje efimano lange kuumwe.” Okwa ti yo vali: “Aame [Jehova, NW], kape na umwe, kape na kalunga pamwe naame.” (Jes. 42:8; 45:5) Jehova okwa amena edina laye liha kufwe mo filufilu mEembibeli opo ovanhu mounyuni aushe va dule oku li shiiva. Kau fi tuu oufembanghenda okulongifa edina laJehova nokukala tu li Eendombwedi daye! Kungaho, otu li metwokumwe neendjovo odo tadi ti: ‘Medina laKalunga ketu omo hatu dungaadungifa omapandela etu.’ — Eps. 20:6.

14. Kakele kOmbibeli, edina laKalunga otali hangwa vali peni?

Kemanya oko okwa shangwa ehokololo olo la tumbula ohamba Omri nosho yo osho sha li sha popiwa kohamba yOvamoab yedina Meesa shi na sha nolwoodi olo a lwa nOvaislael. (1 Eeh. 16:28; 2 Eeh. 1:1; 3:4, 5) Edina laKalunga olo la shangwa kEmanya lOvamoab ola shangwa neendada nhee dOshiheberi hadi ifanwa o-Tetragrammaton. O-Tetragrammaton oya li yo ya shangwa lwoikando meendada dOshilachish, koitandu yoiyuma yOvaisrael.

15. O-Septuagint oshike, nomolwashike ya li ya pumbiwa?

Ovajuda ova li moukwatwa waBabilon oule womido 70, naashi va mangululwa mo 537 K.O.P., vamwe ova li va tokola okukala muBabilon. Ndele mokweendela ko kwefimbo, Ovajuda vahapu ova li va tembukila kuAlexandria, muEgipti, oko haku popiwa Oshigreka. Ovajuda ovo ova li va pumbwa etoloko lOshigreka lOmishangwa dOshiheberi. Eekopi dimwe dOshigreka do-Septuagint odi na edina laKalunga li li mOshiheberi.

16. Ongahelipi embo Bay Psalm Book la longifa edina laJehova?

16 Edina laKalunga otali hangwa mo-Bay Psalm Book, embo olo la li la nyanyangidwa oshikando shotete mo 1640 moikolonyekwalongo yaAmerika. Ola li mOshiheberi ndele tali tolokwa mOshiingilisha. Edina laKalunga ola li la shangwa ngaha, Iehovah mEpisalme 1:1, 2. Etoloko olo ola ti kutya omulumenhu omunelao oyoo iha pwilikine kovahenakalunga ndele oha hokwa “omhango ya-lehovah.” Ngeenge owa hala ouyelele muhapu kombinga yedina laKalunga, tala oshiwedelwako pepandja 195-197 membo Ombibeli otai hongo lela shike?

JEHOVA OKWA AMENA OSHILI YOPAMHEPO OPO TU I SHIIVE

17, 18. (a) Oshili oshike? (b) Omahongo amwe ‘oshili yevangeli’ oelipi?

17 Ohatu longele nehafo “Jehova Kalunga  koshili.” (Eps. 31:5, NW) Ndele mbela oshili oshike? Oyo oushili woshinima shonhumba. MOmalaka omo mwa li mwa tolokwa Ombibeli pehovelo, oshitya “oshili” osha tolokwa sha yukifwa koshinima shi li paushili, sha yuka noshi shii okulineekelwa.

18 Jehova okwa amena oshili opo tu i shiive nokunena. Ohe tu kwafele yo opo tu lihonge shihapu kombinga yayo. (2 Joh. 1, 2) Naasho osho hatu lihongo mOmayeletumbulo 4:18, eshi a ti: “Elila lovayuki li li ngaashi eluwa tali tende, lo tali eta ouyelele tau hapupala fiyo omutenya tau tu.” Jesus okwa ilikana kuKalunga a ti: “Eendjovo doye odo oshili.” (Joh. 17:17) Ombibeli oi na ‘oshili yevangeli,’ oyo ya kwatela mo omahongo aeshe opaKriste. (Gal. 2:14) Omahongo amwe omuo oelipi? Ongaashi, oshili kombinga yedina laJehova, ounamapangelo waye, ekuliloyambo laJesus, enyumuko nosho yo Ouhamba. Paife natu ka kundafaneni shi na sha nanghee Kalunga a amena oshili, nonande Satana okwa kala ta kendabala oku i holeka.

JEHOVA INA EFA NANDENANDE SATANA A HOLEKE OSHILI

19, 20. Nimrod okwa li lyelye, novanhu ova li tava kendabala okuninga shike eshi a li ta pangele?

19 Konima yEyelu, okwa li ku na omukongo omunaenghono wedina Nimrod oo a li e li omhinge naJehova. (Gen. 10:9) Molwaashi Nimrod okwa li e li omhinge naJehova Kalunga, osho otashi ulike kutya okwa li ta longele Satana. Nimrod okwa li e na oikala ya fa yaavo va li omhinge nOmona waKalunga. Jesus okwa popya kombinga yavo a ti: ‘Nye omu na xo yeni, Satana, nouhalu waxo yeni mwa hala oku u wanifa, nghee a dja ina kala moshili.’ — Joh. 8:44.

20 Nimrod okwa li ha pangele Babel noilando imwe oyo i li pokati komulonga waTigris naEufrat. (Gen. 10:10) Otashi dulika oye a li a hovela okutunga Babel nosho yo oshungo yasho momudo 2269 K.O.P. lwaapo. Jehova ka li a hala ovanhu va kale ponhele imwe aike, ndele ovatungi vaBabel ova li ve lilombwela va ti: “Ileni, fye tu litungileni oshilando noshungo ile, onhele yayo i twe keulu. Ndee tu liningileni edina, tu he lihanene nounyuni aushe.” Ashike ovanhu ovo kava li va dula okumanifa oshilonga shavo shokutunga oshungo molwaashi Kalunga okwa li a ‘dongakanifa elaka ledu alishe,’ ndele te va halakanifa nounyuni aushe. (Gen. 11:1-4, 8, 9) Satana okwa li a hala okuhanauna po elongelokalunga lashili nokunwefa mo ovanhu aveshe va kale tave mu longele. Ndele Jehova okwa li a amena elongelokalunga lashili, neemhunga dovanhu ohadi mbobolokele melongelokalunga lashili efiku keshe.

21, 22. (a) Omolwashike omalongelokalunga oipupulu inaa dula okuhanauna po elongelokalunga lashili? (b) Oshike hatu ka kundafana moshitukulwa tashi landula?

21 Omalongelokalunga oipupulu kae na efiku a hanaune po elongelokalunga lashili. Omolwashike mbela? Omolwaashi Omuhongi wetu Munenenene, Jehova, okwa amena Ombibeli opo tu dule okushiiva edina laye nosho yo oshili. (Jes. 30:20, 21, NW) Ngeenge otwa kala hatu longele Kalunga monghedi omo a hokwa, ohatu ka kala twa hafa shili. Ndele otu na okukala twa lungama opo tu itavele ashike oinima oyo yoshili, nokulandula ewiliko olo hatu pewa komhepo iyapuki yaKalunga.

22 Moshitukulwa tashi landula, ohatu ka kundafana nghee eengeleka dimwe da hovela okuhonga oipupulu kombinga yaKalunga. Ohatu ke lihonga yo kutya Omishangwa itadi hongo oipupulu ya tya ngaho. Kakele kaasho, ohatu ka mona kutya Jehova okwe tu punika eshi e tu pa ouyelele washili kombinga yaye. Aishe oyo oi li eefyuululo letu lopamhepo.
