“[Zangi yinapu nge] miveso yakakahya, ukiko mulangi waYehova.”—MWASO 8:6.

1, 2. Veya vanahase kunganyala hakukekesa Mwaso waSolomone, kaha mwomwo ika? (Talenu muvwimbimbi wakulivanga.)

KALAMA umwe uze ahanjikile chihande chawenga amwene omu valizangile nakulitala vaze valimbachile. Chasolokele hatoma nge valizangile chikupu. Omu avamwene vali nakukina nakulisamba kuchihela chakuhemena, alihulishile ngwenyi, Uno ulo kana naukelila tahi? Omu namuhita myaka, kutala navakalizanga lika tahi nyi zangi yavo nayikahola? Nge navatwalaho lika kulizanga, kaha zangi kana nayikapwa yamwenemwene. Hakuwana nge malo amavulu ali nakufwa, ngocho vatu vamwe vanahase kuhulisa ngwavo uno vatu vanahase kutwalaho lika kulizanga muulo tahi?

2 Nakunyima vene mumyaka yaMwangana Solomone, vatu kavalisolwelelenga zangi yamuchanoko. Solomone ahanjikile omu chapwile mumyaka yize ngwenyi: “Ngunawane lunga umwe mulikombakaji, oloze kanda nguwane pwevo muli vosenovo. Tala, ngunawanechi kaha ngwami, Kalunga avatengele vatu vakusungama, oloze vakivo vanatondo vyuma vyakutaka vyavivulu.” (Kwambu. 7:26-29) Mumyaka yenyi, mapwevo vavavulu vakumafuchi eka vandupukilile mukulemesa Mbale, kaha vilinga vyavo vyapihile chikuma. Shikaho chapwile chachikalu kuwana lunga  chipwe pwevo wavilinga vyamwaza. * Chipwe ngocho mwaso asonekele Solomone kafwe myaka 20 kunyima, wasolwele nge lunga napwevo vanahase kupwa nazangi yakwilila. Wasolwele nawa omu yapwa zangi kana nomu vanahase kuyisolola. Ngocho, vangamba jaYehova valimbata navajike vanahase kulinangula vyazangi kana nge navakekesa mukanda kanou wamuMbimbiliya.

VATU VANAHASE KUPWA NAZANGI YAMUCHANO

3. Mwomwo ika valunga napwevo vanahase kupwa lika nazangi yamuchano?

3 Tangenu Mwaso waSolomone 8:6. Mazu akwamba ngwavo “mulangi waYehova” veji kuwazachisa hakulumbununa zangi yamuchano. Zangi yamuchano yapwa “mulangi waYehova” mwomwo ikiye ayihakileko. Atengele mutu muchifwanyisa chenyi namuchima wakusolola zangi. (Kupu. 1:26, 27) Omu Kalunga ahanyine pwevo wakulivanga Eve kuli lunga watete kutenga Alama, Alama ahanjikile mazu akusolola nge amuzangile. Chapundu vene Eve nayikiye azangile Alama mwomwo ‘vamufumishile kuli ikiye.’ (Kupu. 2:21-23) Hakuwana nge Yehova ikiye atengele vatu namuchima wakulizanga navakwavo, ngocho valunga napwevo vanahase kutwalaho lika kulizanga.

4, 5. Lumbununa mukavatu mujimbu waMwaso waSolomone.

Mujimbu watwamamo wasolola zangi yamwanapwevo wakuShuneme chipwe Shulame, nakafunga uze azangilenga. Ou mwanapwevo apwile wamwaza kaha apwile nakulama wande wamivinyo. Jino omu Solomone atungile chilombo chenyi kwakamwihi, akunyukile, kaha alwezele vatu jenyi vamunehe muchilombo chenyi. Oloze ou mwanapwevo asolwele hatoma ngwenyi azangile kafunga. Numba tuhu Solomone afwililile kwalumuna vishinganyeka vyayou pwevo, oloze ikiye akanyine, azangile uze kafunga. (Mwaso 1:4-14) Kutwala muze uze kafunga amukavile muze muchilombo, kaha valihanjikishile namazu azangi.—Mwaso 1:15-17.

5 Omu Solomone akindulukile kuYelusalema, ayile nauze mwanapwevo, kaha uze kafunga avakavangijile. (Mwaso 4:1-5, 8, 9) Numba tuhu Solomone alembejekele uze mwanapwevo mangana etave, oloze akanyine. (Mwaso 6:4-7; 7:1-10) Amulwezele akinduluke kwimbo lyenyi. Mwaso kana wakukulula namazu auze mwanapwevo akusolola zangi apwile nayo hali uze kafunga hakwamba ngwenyi “anguhwisako, upwenga nge umbwangongo” uze ali nakulaha.—Mwaso 8:14.

6. Mwomwo ika chapwila chachikalu kutachikiza vatu vahanjika mazu mumwaso?

6 Mwaso kanou asonekele Solomone uze wapwa “mwaso wamyaso” yenyi, vawimba kanawa naulumbunwiso wamwaza, kaha chapwa chachashi kwijiva vaze vapwile nakuwimba. (Mwaso 1:1) Ndikishonali yimwe yamba ngwayo, “hakusoneka mujimbu kachapwa chachilemu kusolola majina avatu navyuma vali nakuhanjikako.” (The New Interpreter’s Dictionary of the Bible) Echi chikiko chalingisa majina avatu ahone kusoloka mumwaso kana, mangana mwaso uyeme nakwivwakana kanawa chakuzeneka kuhukana-hukana. Chipwe ngocho, mazu eji kupwanga mumujimbu akiko eji kusololanga nge himutu weka nawahanjika. *

 “ZANGI YOVE YINAWAHE KUHAMBAKANA VINYO”

7, 8. Vyuma muka tunahase kuhanjika ‘hazangi yamwaza’ vasoneka muMwaso waSolomone? Hanenu chakutalilaho.

7 MuMwaso waSolomone vavulukamo chikuma ‘vyakuwaha chazangi’ yauze mwanapwevo nakafunga. Numba tuhu mazu atwamamo vawahanjikile kuvatu vaze vayoyele myaka 3,000 kunyima, kaha nawa asoloka kupwa aungeji kuvatu vamwe makumbi ano, oloze alumbununa kanawa omu veji kwivwanga vatu nomu atalikisa mukuyoya. Chakutalilaho, kafunga asangejekele meso achilembekeshi auze mwanapwevo hakuwafwanyisa ‘kumeso atumbowa.’ (Mwaso 1:15) Uze mwanapwevo nawa afwanyishile meso auze kafunga kutumbowa vavene keshi kumeso avoko. (Tangenu Mwaso waSolomone 5:12.) Kafunga evwile kuwaha chikuma hakumona liso litoma lyauze mwanapwevo kwijiva nge kambowa uze nasane mumavele.

8 Keshi nge mazu osena vasoneka muli ou mwaso waSolomone wahanjika hakuwaha chamutu kahako, nduma. Chakutalilaho, achitalenu hamazu ahanjikile uze kafunga havyuma ahanjikile uze mwanapwevo.

Mwomwo uchi wakusotoka kuchitana uyema, kaha ukwechi kalivumba kamwaza kuhambakana uze vanakamuna lyehi. Kaha nawa ngwenyi: “Mushi yalilimi lyove muli uchi namavele,” kulumbununa nge hanjikiso yenyi yamwaza ngana mwauchi namavele. Jino omu uze kafunga alwezele uze mwanapwevo ngwenyi, “unawahe mwosena, muli ove kamweshi katengako,” apwile wamwaza muvyuma vyosena kuhakilako vene namujimba.

9. (a) Zangi muka yize veji kusololanga vaze valimbata? (b) Mwomwo ika chapwila chachilemu kuli vaze valimbata kulisolwela zangi?

9 Ulo kawapwa nge chivwasano chize vanasayina hamapapilo chakuzeneka zangiko. Oloze zangi yikiko chuma chachinene chize chazamisa malo avaka-Kulishitu. Uno zangi muka vene eyi tuli nakuhanjika?

Kutala yapwa zangi yize veji kulisolwelanga vasepa namutu tahi? (Yowa. 11:3) Kutala yapwa zangi yakwivwila mutu peha tahi?

Shikaho chapwa chachilemu kuli vaze valimbata kulisolwela zangi muchishishisa chakundupukila kaha mumilimo yahakumbi hakumbi. Echi chikiko chinahase kulingisa vaze valimbata vakinge ulo wavo nakupwa vakuwahilila. Nge vatu vafuma muvisemwa muze vausoko veji kutondelanga mutu wakulimbata nenyi, kaha vatu kana kavalijiva kanawako swi nakulikumbi lyakulimbata. Vatela kuhanjikanga hatoma ngwavo valizanga. Kulinga ngocho nachivakafwa vazamise ulo wavo nakufukila.

10. Kushinganyeka hamazu azangi chinahase kutukafwa ngachilihi?

10 Kulisolwela zangi muulo cheji kunehanga nawa mihako yamwaza. Mwangana Solomone alisuwile kulingila uze mwanapwevo wakuShulame “jizeze jaulu najimota japalata.” Amwalishile chikuma hakuwaha chenyi ngwenyi, “wamwaza nge kakweji, utoma nge likumbi.” (Mwaso 1:9-11; 6:10) Oloze uze mwanapwevo azangile lika uze kafunga. Vyuma muka vyamujikijishile nakumuvendejeka omu apwile kwakusuku nauze kafunga? Atulweza  vyuma vyamukafwile. (Tangenu Mwaso waSolomone 1:2, 3.) Anukile ‘mazu azangi’ auze kafunga. Kuli yikiye mazu kana ‘awahile kuhambakana vinyo’ vize vyeji kuwahisanga muchima wamutu, kaha lijina lyenyi lyapwile nge ‘maji vanahingunwina’ mumutwe.
