(1 Joh. 4:8) Milawu yoonse yakali muMulawu waMusa Jehova njaakapanga, yakayeeme mumilawu iibili mipati, wakuyanda Leza akuyanda basimayakilane. (Lev. 19:18; Dt. 6:5; bala Matayo 22:36-40.) Nkinkaako, tulangilila kuti mulawu umwi awumwi mumilawu iili 600 ayimwi iili kkumi yakali kupanga Mulawu, ituyiisya atala aluyando lwaJehova. Atulange-lange zimwi zikozyano.

5 Syomeka kumuntu ngukwetenaawe alubo usanine bana bako. Jehova uyanda kuti bantu bakwetene kabayandana akuti luyando lwabo lutamani pe. (Matl. 2:24; Mt. 19:3-6) Bumambi nchiimwi chazibi zipati loko umwi nchakonzya kubisizya ngwakwetenaawe. Nkinkaako, mulawu wachi7 muMilawu Iili Kkumi, wakali kukasya kuchita bumambi. (Dt. 5:18) Kuchita bumambi ‘nkubisizya Leza’ alubo nkutondeezya kuba aalunya mulukwatano.

6 Jehova ulaandaba ambubeendelezyania bantu bakwetene. Wakali kuyandisya kuti bakayintu bachiIsrayeli kabajatwa kabotu. Mwaalumi wakali kulemeka Mulawu, wakali kumuyanda mukayintu wakwe alubo taakali kumuleka akaambo katwaambo twabuyo. (Dt. 24:1-4; Mt. 19:3, 8) Pesi kuti kwaba mapenzi mulukwatano, mpawo mwaalumi wasala kuti balekane, mwaalumi wakeelede kupa mukayintu wakwe lugwalo lwakulekana. Lugwalo oolu lwakali kukwabilila mukayintu kuti atapegwi mulandu wakuchita bwaamu. Alubo, katanamupa lugwalo oolu, mulumi wakeelede kubona baalu bamumuunzi.

Bazyali bakeelede kubelesya chiindi chabo kuti bagwasye bana babo kuti bamvwisisisye Mulawu waJehova akuti bamuyande. (Dt. 6:6-9; 7:13) Kamwi kaambo kakali kupa kuti Jehova abape mulandu maIsrayeli nkakuti, bakali kubajata munzila yalunya bana babo. (Jer. 7:31, 33) Bazyali teebakeelede kubona bana babo mbuuli chintu nchibakonzya kubelesya kufumbwa mbubayanda pesi bakeelede kubabona mbuuli lukono, kachili chipo chiyandikana chizwa kuli Jehova.—Int. 127:3.

9-11. Nkamboonzi Jehova naakapa mulawu uukasya kweemuzya?

9 Uteemuzyi. Mulawu wamamanino muMilawu Iili Kkumi, wakali kukasya kweemuzya naakuti kuyanda chintu chawumwi. (Dt. 5:21; Rom. 7:7) Jehova wakapa mulawu ooyu kuti ayiisye bantu bakwe chiiyo chiyandikana chakuti, bakwabilile myoyo yabo, chaamba nzibayeeya ambubalimvwa. Jehova ulizi kuti michito mibi isaanguna kayili mizeezo mibi akulimvwa munzila iitali kabotu. (Tus. 4:23) MuIsrayeli wakali kuzumizya kuti mizeezo mibi ikomene mumoyo wakwe, wakali kupa kuti atabajati munzila yaluyando bamwi. Muchikozyano, Mwaami Davida wakawida mukakole aaka. Kumatalikilo, wakali muntu uuli kabotu. Pesi aali chimwi chiindi, wakeemuzya mukayintu wamuntu. Kuchita oobo kwakapa kuti achite chibi. ( Jak. 1:14, 15) Davida wakachita bumambi, wakeezya kweena mulumi wamuntu akupa kuti ajayigwe.—2 Sam. 11:2-4; 12:7-11.

10 Jehova wakali kuziziba kuti muIsrayeli watyola mulawu wakweemuzya nkaambo ulazibona zili mumoyo. (1 Mak. 28:9) Mulawu wakali atala akweemuzya, wakali kugwasya bantu baLeza kuti batantamuke mizeezo yakali kupa kuti bachite zintu zibi. Zilaantanganana kuti Jehova nguTaateesu uuli aluyando alubo musongo!

11 Zyiiyo: Jehova ubona zyiingi kumuntu kutali mbaboneka aanze luzutu. Ulatubona mbutubede choonzyo mumoyo. (1 Sam. 16:7) Taakwe mizeezo, mbutulimvwa naakuti michito njatakonzyi kubona. Ulazibona zibotu nzituchita alubo utusungwaazya kuti katuzichita chiindi choonse. Pesi uyanda kuti tubone akutantamuka mizeezo mibi kayitanaba michito mibi.—2 Mak. 16:9; Mt. 5:27-30.

12. Mulawu waMusa utuyiisyaanzi?

12 Kuyungizya waawo, Mulawu waMusa utuyiisya kuti Jehova uyandisya bululami. (Int. 37:28; Is. 61:8) Leza utubikkila chikozyano chitondeezya mbutweelede kubeendelezya bamwi. Jehova wakali kubalongezya maIsrayeli chiindi nibakali kuswiilila milawu njaakabapede. Pesi bakali kunjila mumapenzi chiindi nibakali kuleka kuswiilila milawu yakwe iiluleme.

13-14. Milawu iibili yakusaanguna iili muMilawu Iili Kkumi yakali kusungwaazyaanzi alubo kuswiilila milawu eeyo kwakali kubagwasya biyeni maIsrayeli?

13 Komba Jehova alikke. Milawu yakusaanguna iibili iili muMilawu Iili Kkumi, yakali kutondeezya kuti maIsrayeli bakeelede kukomba Jehova alikke alubo yakali kubachenjezya kuti batakombi zifanikisyo.

Pesi nibakali kukomba baleza bazimwi zisi, bakali kunjila mumapenzi.

14 Yeeya atala abantu bakuKkenani. Bakali kukomba zifanikisyo zitaponi kutali Leza wakasimpe, muumi. Eezi zyakapa kuti batabi aabulemu. (Int. 115:4-8) Mubukombi bwabo, bakali kulijata munzila iisesemya mumakani aakoonana akupayizya bana babo munzila iiyoosya. Munzila iikozyenie, chiindi maIsrayeli nibakali kuleka kuswiilila milawu yaJehova akusala kukomba zifanikisyo, zyakali kupa kuti babule bulemu alubo mpuli zyabo zyakali kunjila mumapenzi. (2 Mak. 28:1-4) Bantu bakali kuzulwida teebakachili kwaatobelezya pe malayilile aaJehova aali atala abululami. Teebakali kwaabelesya kabotu manguzu aabo alubo bakali kubadyaaminina bantu bakatalikwe manguzu abakatakwabilidwe.  (Ezk. 34:1-4) Jehova wakabuzya maIsrayeli kuti wakali kuyoobabeteka bantu bakali kubajata munzila iitali kabotu banakazi abana bakatakwabilidwe. (Dt. 10:17, 18; 27:19) Kubbazu limwi, Jehova wakali kubalongezya bantu bakwe chiindi nibakali kusyomeka kulinguwe anibakali kuchitilana munzila yabululami.—1 Bam. 10:4-9, NW.

Jehova ulatuyanda alubo ulabona chiindi nituba mumapenzi akaambo kakujatwa munzila iitaluleme (Langa fuka 15)

Nga wamvwa kuchisa zyiindilide nituswaana machise kwiinda mbalimvwa mukayintu chiindi mwanaakwe natamvwide kabotu.

MULAWU WAMUSA WAKEELEDE KUBELESEGWA BIYENI?

16-18. Mulawu waMusa wakali kubeleka muzyiimo zili zyabuumi alubo nziizili zyiiyo nzitwiiya?

16 Mulawu waMusa wakali kubeleka muzyiimo zyiingi zyamaIsrayeli, nkinkaako kwakali kuyandikana kuti baalumi bakasalidwe, kababeteka bantu baJehova munzila iiluleme. Bakali amulimu wakulanga-langa makani aali atala abukombi, kutamvwanana ayimwi milandu. Atubone zikozyano zitobela.

17 MuIsrayeli wakali wajaya umwi, teezyakali kwaamba kuti anguwe wakeelede kujayigwa. Baalu bamumuunzi wakulimbabo, bakeelede kulanga-langa zyachitika kuti babone kuti weelede kujayigwa na. (Dt. 19:2-7, 11-13) Alubo, baalu bakali kubeteka makani aasiyene-siyene azintu zichitika mubuumi, ziswaanizya kutamvwanana akaambo kalubono amulukwatano. (Kul. 21:35; Dt. 22:13-19) Chiindi baalu nibakali kutondeezya bululami achiindi maIsrayeli nibakali kuswiilila Mulawu, boonse bakali kugwasigwa alubo chisi chabo chakali kupa kuti Jehova alemekwe.—Lev. 20:7, 8; Is. 48:17, 18.

Pesi bakeelede kuyanda bululami.—Dt. 1:13-17; 16:18-20.

20 Jehova uli aluzyalo kubantu bakwe, nkinkaako wakabikka milawu iibakwabilila kuti  batajatwi munzila iitaluleme. Muchikozyano, muMulawu, kwakali malayilile aatondeezya kuti muntu taakeelede kutamikizya mweenzinyina. Sikutamikizigwa, wakali acheelelo chakuziba uumutamikizya. (Dt. 19:16-19; 25:1) Alubo katanajanwa kuti uli amulandu, bakamboni babili bakeelede kupa bumboni. (Dt. 17:6; 19:15) Pesi kutegwani amuIsrayeli wachita mulandu mpawo wabonwa amuntu uumwi luzutu? Taakeelede kuyeeya kuti takajanwi kali amulandu. Jehova wakali kuzibona nzyachita muntu ooyo. Mumpuli, mawisi akapedwe bweendelezi pesi bwakali aampubugolela. Kuti kwaba kumwi kutamvwanana mumpuli, baalu bamumuunzi bakali amulimu wakulanga-langa makani aayo akumaninsya kaambo aako.—Dt. 21:18-21.

21 Zyiiyo: Jehova nchikozyano chibotu nkaambo zintu zyoonse uzichita munzila yabululami. (Int. 9:7) Ulabalongezya bantu batobela zyeelelo zyakwe pesi ubapa mulandu bantu bataabelesyi kabotu manguzu ngibapedwe.

(Tus. 28:13, NW) Kuti teebachincha, bayooziba mbaawamba majwi aakuti “cilayoosya kuwida mumaanza aa-Leza muumi.”—Heb. 10:30, 31.

MBAANI KAPATI BAKALI KUKWABILILWA AMULAWU?

Babetesi bamaIsrayeli bakabuzigwa kuti: “Mutapilinganyi kubetekwa kweelede mweenzu naba mucaala, azyakusama zyamukamufu mutazitoli cakusyomezyanya.” (Dt. 24:17) Jehova wakali kubatondeezya luyando lupati, bantu bakatali kukonzya kulikwabilila muchilawu.

Nikuba boobo, Mulawu teewakachili kubeleka pe Jesu naakazuzikizya Mulawu alubo mubusena bwawo, kwakaba chimwi chintu chisumpukide.
