‘Yahova Mulungu Wathu, Ni Yahova m’Bodzi Yekha Basi’

‘Tetekerani, imwe Wajirayeri! Yahova Mulungu wathu, ni Yahova m’bodzi yekha basi.’—BZAK. 6:4.

NYIMBO: 138, 112

1, 2. (a) N’thangwe ranyi mafala ya pa Bzakutonga 6:4 yambadziwika bwino? (b) N’thangwe ranyi Mozeji adalewa mafala yamweya?

KWA magole madzana mazinji yapitaya, mafala matanthatu Yacihebereu ya pa Bzakutonga 6:4 yakhaphatisidwa basa na Adjuda wakukhulupirika ninga mbali ya mpembo wawo. Iwo akhambaulewa nsiku zense, macibese na usiku. Mpemboyu umbacemeredwa kuti Shema, lomwe ni fala lakuyamba la vesi limweri. Na mpembo umweyu, Adjuda wakubzipereka akhalatiza kubzipereka kwawo kuna Mulungu.

2 Mafala yamweyale ni mbali ya mafala ya Mozeji yomwe adauza mtundu wa Jirayeri bza makonzedwe yakulewa bza Moabe mu gole la 1473 AEC. Mtunduyo ukhadasala pang’ono kuti uyambuke mkulo wa Joridano kuti ukakhale ku Dziko Lakupiciridwa. (Bzak. 6:1) Mozeji omwe adakhala mtsogoleri wawo kwa magole 40, akhafuna kuti wanthuwo akhale wakukhwimika pomwe angadagumana na mabvuto yomwe yakhabwera. Iwo akhafunika kuthemba Yahova na kukhala na cikhulupiro pa iye ninga Mulungu wawo. Pakumalizira mafala ya Mozeji yadadzabveseseka mwamphanvu kuna wanthuwo. Pambuyo pa kufotokoza Bzakutonga Khumi na mitemo minango yomwe Yahova  adaipereka kuna mtunduyo, Mozeji adalewa mafala yamphanvu yakugumanika pa Bzakutonga 6:4, 5. (Werengani.)

3. Kodi tin’cezerana mibvunzo iponi mu nkhani ino?

3 Kodi pomwe Ajirayeri akhadakonkhana na Mozeji akhadziwa lini kuti Yahova Mulungu wawo ni ‘Yahova m’bodzi yekha basi?’ Kulewa cadidi, iwo akhadziwa. Ajirayeri wakukhulupirika akhadziwa ndipo akhanamata Mulungu m’bodzi yekha—Mulungu wa abereki wawo Abalahamu, Izaki na Djakobi. Penu n’tenepo, n’thangwe ranyi Mozeji adawatsimikizira kuti Yahova Mulungu wawo ni ‘Yahova m’bodzi yekha basi?’ Kukhala kwace Yahova m’bodzi yekha basi kumbabverana na kumufuna na mtima wathu wense, moyo wathu wense na mphanvu zathu zense ninga momwe bzimbalewedwera pa vesi 5? Ndipo kodi mafala ya pa Bzakutonga 6:4, 5 yambathandauza ciyani kuna ifepano nsiku zino?

THANGWE RANYI YAHOVA NI M’BODZI YEKHA BASI?

4, 5. (a) Kodi ni thandauzo libodzi lokha liponi la mafala yakuti ‘Yahova m’bodzi yekha basi’? (b) Kodi Yahova ngwakusiyana tani na mirungu yakusiyana-siyana ya wanthu?

4 M’bodzi yekha basi. Fala lakuti “cibodzi” m’Cihebereu na m’bzirewedwe bzinango bzakusiyana-siyana limbandothandauza mulewengo ubodzi. Lingathandauze cinthu cakupambulika, cibodzi cokha. Pomwe akhalewa fala limweri, Mozeji akhalewa lini bza bzipfunziso bza bzipembedzo bzakunama bzakulewa bza mulungu utatu. Yahova ni Mulengi wa kudzulu na dziko la pansi Mtongi wa cirengedwe cense. Palibe Mulungu winango wacadidi koma iye yekha basi; palibe wakundendemerana naye. (2 Sam. 7:22) Tsono Mozeji akhakumbusa Ajirayeri kuti kunamata kwawo Yahova kukhafunika kukhala kwakupambulika. Iwo akhafunika lini kutewezera wanthu womwe akhadawazungulira, womwe akhanamata mirungu yakusiyana-siyana yacimuna na yacikazi. Inango mwa mirungu yakunamayo ikhawonedwa ninga ikhatsogolera bzinthu bzinango bzacirengedwe. Mirungu inango ikhana mawonekedwe yakusiyana-siyana yakupambulika.

5 Mwa ciratizo, a Edjipito akhanamata mulungu dzuwa wakucemeredwa Ra, mulungu wacikazi Nut, mulungu dziko Geb, mulungu Nilo Hapi na wa bzirombo bzakusiyana-siyana bzakupambulika. Izinji mwa mirungu imweyi idapfudzidwa na Yahova pomwe adacitisa Matsoka Khumi. Mulungu Wacikanani akhali Baala, mulungu wa mphanvu ya kubala, omwe akhawonedwambo ninga mulungu wa m’mulenga-lenga, wa nvula na wa conzi. Baala akhali mulungu mkulu m’deralo. (Mirew. 25:3) Ajirayeri akhafunika kukumbukira kuti Mulungu wawo, ‘Mulungu wa cadidi’ ni ‘Yahova m’bodzi yekha basi.’—Bzak. 4:35, 39.

6, 7. Kodi fala lakuti ‘m’bodzi’ lingathandauze pomwe ciyani, ndipo Yahova adalatiza tani kuti ni ‘m’bodzi’ yekhayo?

6 Wakusaya kucinja na Wakukhulupirika. Fala lakuti ‘m’bodzi’ lingathandauzembo ciphatano, cakulinga cibodzi na mabasa. Yahova Mulungu ngwakugawanika lini ayai wakusaya kudziwika. M’mbuto mwace, iye nthawe zense ngwakukhulupirika, ambacinja lini ndipo ngwa cadidi. Iye adapicira Abalahamu kuti wana wace angadadzakhala m’Dziko Lakupiciridwa ndipo Yahova adalatiza mphanvu zace kuti akwanise piciro limweri. Magole 430 yomwe yadapita yalibe kubweza citsimikizo ca Yahova ca kucita bzimwebzi.—Ciy. 12:1, 2, 7; Kuf. 12:40, 41.

7 Magole madzana mazinji patsogolo pace, pomwe adadziwikisa Ajirayeri ninga mboni zace, Yahova adawauza kuti: ‘Ine ndiribe kucinja. Pomwe ine ndikhanati kuwoneka pakhalibe Mulungu munango wakukonzedwa, ndipo pambuyo pangu palibe pomwe munango.’ Pakufuna kubvekesa cakulinga ca kusaya kucinja kwace, Yahova adathumizira pomwe kuti: ‘Nthawe zense ine ndimbacinja lini.’ (Zai. 43:10, 13; 44:6; 48:12) Ukhali mwayi wakupambulika kuna Ajirayeri—na ifembo nsiku zino—wakukhala atumiki wa Yahova, Mulungu omwe ambacinja lini na wakukhulupirika  m’njira zace zense!—Malak. 3:6; Tiy. 1:17.

8, 9. (a) Kodi n’ciyani comwe Yahova ambafuna kuna anamati wace? (b) Kodi Jezu adalatiza tani kuti akhawona mafala ya Mozeji kukhala yakufunika?

8 Mozeji adakumbusa wanthu kuti Yahova akhacinja lini pa lufoyi lace na momwe akhawasamalira. Na tenepo, bzikhali bzakuthemeradi kuti iwo akhafunika kunamata iye yekha basi, kumufuna na mtima wawo wense, moyo wawo na mphanvu zawo. Maswaka yakhafunika kutewerambo njira imweyi ya kubzipereka na mtima wense thangwe abereki akhapfunzisa wana wawo pa mpata uli-wense omwe ungadagumanikayo.—Bzak. 6:6-9.

9 Pakuti Yahova ambacinja lini bzomwe iye ambafuna na cakulinga cace, n’bzakubveka bwino kuti bzomwe iye ambafuna kuna anamati wace wacadidi n’bzibodzi-bodzi nsiku zino. Kuti kunamata kwathu kukhale kwakubvumizika kwa iye, tin’funika kunamata iye yekha basi na kumufuna iye na mtima wathu wense, nzeru zathu zense ndipo na mphanvu zathu zense. N’cadidi, ndibzo bzomwe Jezu adalewa kwa munthu omwe adamubvunza. (Werengani Marko 12:28-31.) Tsapano, mbationeni momwe tingalatizire m’bzicito bzathu kuti timbabvesesadi kuti ‘Yahova Mulungu wathu ni Yahova m’bodzi yekha.’

Kunamata kwathu iye kun’funika lini kugawanidwa na mirungu inango ne kupswipizidwa na nzeru ayai bzicito bza kunamata kwa mtundu munango. Tin’funika kukhala na makumbukidwe yakuti Yahova ni Mulungu lini omwe ali pakati pa mirungu mizinji; ndipo iye ngwapadzulu lini na wa mphanvu pakati pawo. Koma Yahova yekha ndiye an’funika kunamatidwa.—Werengani Cibvumbulutso 4:11.

Iwo adawonesa kubzipereka kwawo kwakupambulika kuna Yahova si kuti kokha mwa kulamba kudya cakudya cakupswipa koma adalambambo kugodamira cifanikiso ca oro ca Nabukadinazori. Bzomwe adaikha pa mbuto yakuyamba bzidawoneka; kunamata kwawo kukhafunika lini kusanganizidwa na bzinango.—Dan. 2:1–3:30.

12. Mwa kunamata Yahova yekha, kodi tin’funika kudikhirira kulimbana na cineso ciponi?

Kodi bzinthu bzimwebzi bzingakhale ciyani? Mu Bzakutonga Khumi, Yahova adauza padeca wanthu wace kuti an’funika lini kukhala na mirungu inango kupambula iye basi na kuti iwo akhafunika lini kunamata mitundu iri-yense ya bzifanikiso. (Bzak. 5:6-10) Nsiku zino, kunamata bzifanikiso kungacitike mu njira zizinji zomwe zinango mwa izo tingakwanise lini kuzizindikira. Koma bzomwe Yahova ambafuna bzikanati kucinja—iye akali ‘Yahova m’bodzi yekha basi.’ Bwerani tione kuti bzimwebzi bzina thandauzo liponi kuna ife.

13. N’ciyani comwe tingayambe kucifuna kwene-kwene kuposa Yahova?

13 Pa Wakoloso 3:5 (Werengani), timbagumana malango yamphanvu kuna Akristau yakulewa bza bzomwe bzingadzonge m’bverano wawo wakupambulika na Yahova.

Iwo an’dzalewa kuti: ‘[Yahova] an’dzatipfunzisa bza njira zace ndipo ife tin’dzafamba m’njira zacezo.’ (Zai. 2:2, 3) Ndife wakukondwa kuwona na maso yathu kukwanisika kwa polofesiyayi!

Onani kuti Paulo pakuyamba adafotokoza makhalidwe ninga kubzicepswa, kupfatsa, kupirira na lufoyi. Makhalidweya yangakhale ninga midjirikiro pa nyumba kuti ireke kugwa. Koma kupambula kukhala na midjirikiro yakulimba, nyumba imbafuna kusamalidwa nthawe zense; kusiya bzimwebzo, nyumbayo ingadzongeke. Paulo adacenjeza Akristau wa ku Efezo kuti akhafunika kucita nyongo kuti ‘asunge ubodzi mwa mzimu.’
