Eljashib okwa li a tulile po oshigwana oshiholelwa oshiwanawa mokwaambidhidha thiluthilu Nehemia mokutungulula omadhingililokuma gaJerusalem. (Neh. 3:1) Ihe mokweendela ko kwethimbo, enwethomo ewinayi lyaTobija nosho wo lyayalwe olya li lya ningitha Eljashib a kale a talika ko kuJehova kutya ina yogoka. Ookuume aawanawa ohaye tu ladhipike tu kale hatu kutha ombinga miinima yopaKriste mbyoka yi na oshilonga, ngaashi okulesha Ombiimbeli, okukala pokugongala kehe kwopaKriste, nokukutha ombinga miilonga yomomapya.

Aalevi oya li ye etha po iinakugwanithwa yawo noya yi ya ka longe momapya gawo molwaashoka kaya li we haya mono ekwatho ndyoka. Nehemia okwa li a pe omalenga ombedhi omolwonkalo ndjoka.

Otashi vulika kaaya li haya gongele iitimulongo yaantu nenge kaaya li haye yi fala kotempeli ngaashi ya li ya pewa oshinakugwanithwa shoku shi ninga.

(Omayel. 3:9) Uuna tatu gandja omayambidhidho tu ambidhidhe iilonga ye, otatu gandja kuJehova shoka she nale. (1 Ondjal. 29:14-16) Otashi vulika tu dhiladhile kutya katu na oshindji okugandja, ihe ngele otu na ehalo, atuheni otatu ke shi ninga. — 2 Kor. 8:12.

11 Uule woomvula odhindji, uukwanegumbo wumwe uunene owa li wa hiya aaihokani aakokele aakokolindjila yi ikalekelwa ya kale haye ya ya lye nayo lumwe moshiwike. Nonando aavali megumbo moka oya li ye na aanona yahetatu, meme gwawo okwa li ha ti: “Iiyaha iyali mbi tayi gwedhwa poshitaafula shiiyaha omulongo oshike?” Okulya naaihokani mboka lumwe moshiwike otaku monika inaaku gwana, ihe oya li ya pandula molwaashoka ya li ya yakulwa kuyo! Mepingathano naashono, aaihokani mboka oyo ya ka kala elaleko nuuyamba kuukwanegumbo mboka. Oohapu niimoniwa yaaihokani mbyoka tayi tsu omukumo oya li ya kwathele aanona ya ninge ehumokomeho lyopambepo. Konima, aanona ayehe oya li ya yi miilonga yuukalele wethimbo lyu udha.

Pashiholelwa, okwa li a gandja omayele gopandunge gankene omayambidhidho ge na okugandjwa. — 1 Kor. 16:1-3; 2 Kor. 9:5-7.

Omolwoshinima shoka, mokati koshigwana shaKalunga omu na ohole, ombili nosho wo egameno. — Hes. 34:25, 28.

Mbela ngoye noyaandjeni ohamu pititha ngaa komeho moonkalamwenyo dheni elongelokalunga lyuukwanegumbo, okukala pokugongala kehe, nosho wo okuya muukalele?

Molwaashoka otwa yapulwa, oshi li nawa tu ipule kutya, ‘mbela onkalamwenyo yandje ohayi ulike ngaa kutya ondi ikalekelelwa iilonga yaJehova? — Mat. 6:33.

20 Nehemia okwa li a galikana a ti: “Kalunga kandje, dhimbulukwa ayihe mbika nokuyambeka ndje.” (Neh. 13:31) Ngaashi Nehemia, omadhina getu otaga ka kala membo lyaKalunga lyedhimbulutho ngele otwa tsikile okuyanda eendathano ewinayi; hatu ambidhidha omalongekidho giinima yopakalunga; hatu pititha komeho iinima yopambepo; nosho wo okugamena omuthika gwetu gwopaKriste. Natu tsikile ‘nokwiikonakona opo tu tale, ngele otu li tuu meitaalo.’ (2 Kor. 13:5) Ngele otwa kaleke po ekwatathano lyetu lya yapuka naJehova, ote ke tu dhimbulukwa ‘note ke tu yambeka.’
