4 Kapitulo 5 ya bukhu la Zakariya imbayamba na kufotokoza bza matsomphenya yakudabwisa. (Werengani Zakariya 5:1, 2.) Zakariya adawona mpukutu omwe ukhambuluka na mphepo m’dzaulu. Mpukutuyo ukhadatalimpha metro zipfemba ndipo khwankhwa lace likhana metro zinai na pakati. Ukhadafuthuka ndipo ukhadanembedwa mafala.

Iwo ambafuna Yahova ndipo ambadziwa kuti kuba kumbanyozesa dzina lace. (Mimwani 30:8, 9) Wanthu winango, angakumbuke kuti kuba n’kwakuphonyeka  lini akakhala kuti ana mathangwe yakubveka. Tsono, bziribe basa mathangwe yomwe yangacitise kuti munthu abe, munthu omwe ambaba ambalatiza kuti ambawona bzikhumbo bzace kukhala bzakufunika kwene-kwene kuposa Yahova, dzina lace pabodzi na malamulo yace.

Tenepo Yahova angazimbule na kupereka ciyeruzo pa cinthu ciri-cense cakuipa comwe atumiki wace angacite. Napo kuti munthu omwe ambaba angabisire wa mphanvu za umangi, patrau wace, akulu wa gwere ayai abereki, iye angabisire lini Yahova. Ndipo Mulungu an’dzazimbula kuba kwa mtundu uli-wense.

8 Mpukutuyo udanembedwambo mafala ya m’cenjezo kuna wale omwe ‘ambalumbira mwakunama’ m’dzina la Mulungu. (Zakariya 5:4) Lumbiro ni mafala yomwe munthu ambalewa yakutsimikiza kuti bzomwe walewabzo mpsacadidi, ayai ni piciro lakuti an’dzacita ayai an’dzacita lini cinthu cinango.

9 Kulumbira m’dzina la Yahova ni nkhani lini yamasenzeka. Tingapfunze na bzomwe bzidacitika na Zedekiya, omwe adakhala mambo wakumalizira kutonga ku Jeruzalemu. Zedekiya adalumbira m’dzina la Yahova kuti iye angadabzipereka na  kutumikira mambo wa ku Babulo. Koma Zedekiya alibe kuteweza lumbiro lace. Na thangwe limweri, Yahova adalewa kuti Zedekiya ‘angadakafera ku Babulo, m’dziko lomwe kumbakhala mambo ule omwe adamusankhula kukhala mambo.’—Zakiyeri 17:16.

10 Mambo Zedekiya akhadalumbira m’dzina la Mulungu ndipo Yahova akhadikhira kuti iye ateweze lumbiro lacero. (2 Nkhani 36:13) Tsono Zedekiya alibe kuteweza lumbiro lacero ndipo adakakumbira thandizo Aedjipito kuti amuthandize kumenyana na Ababulo. Koma, Edjipito angadamuthandiza lini.—Zakiyeri 17:11-15, 17, 18.

(Psalymo 76:11) Piciro la kubzipereka kwathu kuna Yahova ndiro lakufunika kwene-kwene pa mapiciro yense. Kubzipereka ni lumbiro lomwe timbacita kwa Yahova, lakupicira kuti tin’dzapitiriza kumutumikira pa moyo wathu wense, napo tigumane na mabvuto.

12 Kodi n’ciyani comwe tingacite kuti timbateweze piciro lomwe tidacita kwa Yahova? ‘Nsiku na nsiku’ timbagumana na mayezo yakusiyana-siyana pa moyo wathu. Tsono momwe timbacitira bzinthu tikagumana na mayezoyo, bzimbalatiza penu uxamwali bwathu na Yahova n’bwakulimba ayai ne. (Psalymo 61:8) Mwa ciratizo, kodi mun’dzacita ciyani penu mwanzanu wa ku basa ayai wa ku xikola wayamba kukukhumbani kuti mukhale naye pa umakhadzi? Kodi mun’dzalamba mayezoyo mucilatiza kuti mun’funa kubvera Yahova? (Mimwani 23:26) Ndipo tani penu ndimwe mwekha m’banja mwanu omwe munkutumikira Yahova? Kodi mumbakumbira thandizo la Yahova kuti mupitirize kucita bzinthu ninga mtumiki wace? Napo kuti munkugumana na mayezo, kodi mumbatenda Yahova nsiku zense thangwe ra lufoyi na citsogozo cace? Kodi mumbapambula nthawe ya kuwerenga Bibliya nsiku zense? Tin’funika lini kuyebwa kuti, pomwe tidabzipereka kwa Yahova tidalumbira kucita bzinthu bzimwebzi. Tikambabvera Yahova na kucita bzinthu bzabwino kwa iye, timbalatiza kuti timbamufuna nakuti ndife wace. Kunamata kwathu ni njira yomwe in’dzatitsogolera ku moyo. Ndipo pakuti ndife wakukhulupirika kwa Yahova, iye adatipicira tsogolo labwino kwene-kwene.—Bzakutonga 10:12, 13.

Yahova ni ciratizo cabwino ca kuteweza bzomwe ambapicira ndipo na ciratizo caceci, tin’funika kumbatewezambo bzomwe timbapicira

13. Kodi tinkupfunza ciyani na matsomphenya yacitanthatu ya Zakariya?

13 Matsomphenya yacitanthatu ya Zakariya yatithandiza kubvesesa kuti penu timbafuna Yahova, tin’dzatcenkha kuba ndipo tin’dzateweza mapiciro yathu. Tapfunzambo kuti napo Ajirayeri adaphonyera Yahova kazinji kense, iye adapitiriza kucita bzinthu mwakubverana na piciro lace ndipo alibe kuwasiya. Iye akhadziwa kuti iwo akhagumana na mabvuto mazinji kucokera kwa anyamadulanthaka omwe akhakhala nawo pafupi. Na ciratizo cimweci, Yahova ankutipfunzisa kuti tin’funika kumbateweza bzomwe tidapicira. Ndipo tingatsimikize kuti iye an’dzatithandiza kucita bzimwebzo. Njira ibodzi yomwe Yahova ambatithandizira ni kutipasa cidikhiro ca tsogolo labwino. Tsapanopapa, iye an’dzamalisa kuipa kwense pa dziko la pansi. Ndipo m’matsomphenya yankuteweraya tiniwona bza cidikhiro cimweci.

 YAHOVA AN’DZAMALISA UIPI BWENSE

14, 15. (a) Kodi n’ciyani comwe Zakariya adawona m’matsomphenya yace yacinomwe? (Onani cithunzi-thunzi caciwiri pa tsamba 15.) (b) Kodi mkazi omwe akhali mkati mwa combo ni mbani? Ndipo kugwanankhira combo komwe anjo ule adacita kunkuthandauza ciyani?

14 Pomwe Zakariya adamala kuwona mpukutu omwe ukhambuluka ule, anjo m’bodzi adamuuza kuti: ‘Djiguma.’ Tenepo Zakariya adawona combo cakupimira ca ‘efa.’ (Werengani Zakariya 5:5-8.) Comboco cikhana cigwanankhiro cakuzungulira cakukonzedwa na mtobve. Pomwe comboco cidafungulidwa, Zakariya adawona ‘mkazi munango omwe akhadakhala mkati mwace.’ Tenepo, anjoyo adauza Zakariya kuti mkazi omwe akhali mkati mwa combo ule dzina lace akhali ‘Uipi.’ Ndokumbukirani mantha yomwe Zakariya adabva pomwe adawona mkaziyo ankufuna kubula mu comboco! Koma mwakamfulumize anjoyo adamugwinyira mkaziyo mkati mwa comboco, acicigwanankhira na cigwanankhiro cace cakulemera cire. Kodi bzimwebzi bzinkuthandauza ciyani?

15 Matsomphenyaya yankutipasa citsimikizo cakuti Yahova cipo acidzalekerera uipi wa mtundu uli-wense pakati pa wanthu wace. Ndipo Yahova akawona cinthu ciri-cense cakuipa, mwakusaya kucedwa iye ambacita ciri-cense kuti acicose. (1 Wakolinto 5:13) Ndipo anjo ule adalatiza bzimwebzi pomwe adagwanankhira combo cire mwakamfulumize na cigwanankhiro cakulemera.

Yahova adakhotcerera kunamata kwace kwakucena ndipo iye an’dzapitiriza kucita bzimwebzi (Onani ndime 16-18)

16. (a) Kodi n’cinthu cinango ciponi comwe Zakariya adawona, ndipo n’ciyani comwe cidacitika na combo cire? (Onani cithunzi-thunzi cacitatu pa tsamba 15.) (b) Kodi akazi omwe akhana matenga wale adakasiya kuponi comboco?

16 Patsogolo pace, Zakariya adawona akazi awiri omwe akhana matenga ninga ya mbalame. (Werengani  Zakariya 5:9-11.) Akaziwa akhadasiyana kwene-kwene na mkazi wakuipa omwe akhali mu combo ule. Iwo adanyamula combo cire pabodzi na ‘Uipi,’ omwe ni mkazi omwe akhali mkati mwa comboco, aciyenda naye kutali. Kodi iwo adayenda naye kuponi? Iwo adakasiya comboco ku ‘Sineari,’ komwe kukhali ku Babulo. Kodi n’thangwe ranyi iwo adayenda kukamusiya kumweko?

17, 18. (a) N’thangwe ranyi Babulo ikhali mbuto ‘yakuthemera’ yakukasiya ‘Uipi?’ (b) Kodi imwepo mwatsimikiza kucita ciyani?

17 Ajirayeri omwe adakhala mu nthawe ya Zakariya, adabvesesa thangwe race Babulo ikhali mbuto yathemera kukasiya mkazi wakucemeredwa ‘Uipi’ ule. Iwo akhadziwa kuti mzindayo ukhali wakuipa ndipo ukhadadzala na unzazi pabodzi na kunamata kwakunama. Zakariya pabodzi na Ajuda winango omwe akhakhala mu mzindayo, nsiku zense akhafunika kucita nyongo kuti aleke kupumpsidwa na wanthu wakuipa. Tenepo, matsomphenyaya yadalatiza kuti Yahova angadapitiriza kukhotcerera kunamata kwace kwakucena.

18 Matsomphenyaya yadakumbusa Ajuda kuti iwo akhafunikambo kucita mbali yawo kuti akhotcerere kunamata kwawo kwakucena. Uipi bumbabvumidwa lini ndipo bumbalekereredwa lini pakati pa atumiki wa Mulungu. Nsiku zino, Yahova adatipasa mwayi wakucita mbali ya gulu lace lakucena, ndipo m’mwemo timbabzibva kukhala wakufunidwa na wakukhotcerereka na iye. Tenepo ali-wense wa ifepano ana udindo bwakuthandizira kuti gululi lipitirize kukhala lakucena. Uipi bun’funika lini kugumanika pakati pa atumiki wa Yahova.

Matsomphenyaya yankutitsimikira kuti tikambacita bzinthu bzomwe bzimbakondwesa Baba wanthu wa lufoyi, iye an’dzatitemberera lini koma an’dzatikhotcerera na kutisimba. Napo kuti bzingakhale bzakunesa kupitiriza kukhala wakucena m’dziko lakuipali, na thandizo la Yahova bzinthu bzingatifambire bwino! Kodi n’ciyani comwe cingatitsimikizire kuti kunamata kwacadidi kun’dzapitiriza mpaka muyaya? Pakuti tinkufendera ku citsautso cikulu, kodi timbadziwa tani kuti Yahova an’dzakhotcerera gulu lace? Mu nkhani yakutewerayi tin’dzacezerana mitawiro ya mibvunzoyi.
