From olketa lovem God, olketa savve wei for steal bae spoelem nem bilong hem. (Prov. 30:8, 9) Samfala pipol tingse hem no rong for steal bikos olketa garem gudfala reason for duim datwan. Nomata wanem reason man wea steal hem garem, hem showimaot hem greedy and tinghae tumas long material samting, and hem nating tinghae long nem bilong Jehovah and law bilong hem.

6 Tingim hao Zechariah 5:3, 4 sei datfala judgment bae “go insaed long haos bilong man wea steal,” and bae hem “stap insaed datfala haos and finisim.” So diswan minim no eniting savve haed from Jehovah and bae hem judgem pipol bilong hem wea duim eni rong samting. Nomata sapos samwan wea steal hem savve haedem datwan from police, boss bilong hem, olketa elder, or parents, datwan hem nating haed long Jehovah.

14 Bihaen Zechariah lukim datfala scroll wea flae, wanfala angel talem hem for “luk ap.” Then Zechariah lukim tu wanfala container wea olketa kolem “ephah.” (Readim Zechariah 5:5-8.)

Why nao tufala tekem hem go long there?

17, 18. (a) Why nao hem stret for olketa tekem datfala “Nogud Samting” go long Babylon? (b) Wanem nao iumi mas disaed strong for duim?
