Ndipo Aroni na Hura akhadakhala winango ku mbali iyi winango ku mbali  inangoyo, acimbaphatirira manja ya Mozeji ndipo manja yace yadapitiriza kukhala m’dzulu mpaka dzuwa kumira.’ Ndipo thangwe ra mphanvu ya boko la Mulungu, Ajirayeri adakunda nkhondoyo.—Kufuluka 17:8-13.

Pomwe m’bale munango adafedwa mkazi ndipo adapirira mabvuto manango yakuwawa, iye adalewa kuti: “Ndidawona kuti tingakwanise lini kusankhula mayezo, nthawe yomwe yangabwere ne kuwanda kwa momwe yangabwerere.
