Mawu a Mulungu mu Chichewa Chalero

2 Mafumu 1:1-18

Yehova Alanga Ahaziya

1Atamwalira Ahabu, Mowabu anawukira Israeli. 2Ndipo Ahaziya anagwa kuchokera pa khonde la chipinda chake chammwamba ku Samariya, ndipo anavulala kwambiri. Choncho iye anatuma amithenga nawawuza kuti, “Pitani mukafunse kwa Baala-zebubu, mulungu wa ku Ekroni, ngati ndichire matendawa.”

3Koma mngelo wa Yehova anawuza Eliya wa ku Tisibe kuti, “Nyamuka, pita ukakumane ndi amithenga a mfumu ya ku Samariya ndipo ukawafunse kuti, ‘Kodi popeza kulibe Mulungu ku Israeli, nʼchifukwa chake inu mukupita kukafunsa nzeru kwa Baala-zebubu, mulungu wa ku Ekroni?’ 4Tsono Yehova akuti, ‘Iweyo sudzadzuka pa bedi wagonapo. Udzafa ndithu!’ ” Ndipo Eliya ananyamuka.

5Amithenga aja atabwerera kwa mfumu, mfumuyo inawafunsa kuti, “Chifukwa chiyani mwabwerera?”

6Iwo anayankha kuti, “Munthu wina anabwera kudzakumana nafe, ndipo anatiwuza kuti, bwererani kwa mfumu imene inakutumani ndipo mukayiwuze kuti, ‘Yehova akuti, kodi popeza kulibe Mulungu ku Israeli, nʼchifukwa chake mukupita kukafunsa nzeru kwa Baala-zebubu, mulungu wa ku Ekroni? Tsono sudzadzuka pa bedi wagonapo. Udzafa ndithu!’ ”

7Mfumu inafunsa amithengawo kuti, “Kodi munthu amene anabwera kudzakumana nanuyo ndi kukuwuzani zimenezi amaoneka bwanji?”

8Iwo anayankha kuti, “Munthuyo anavala zovala zaubweya ndi lamba wachikopa mʼchiwuno mwake.”

Mfumu inati, “Munthu ameneyo ndi Eliya wa ku Tisibe.”

9Pamenepo mfumu inatuma mtsogoleri wa ankhondo ndi anthu ake makumi asanu kwa Eliya. Mtsogoleriyo anapita kwa Eliya, amene anali atakhala pamwamba pa phiri, ndipo anati, “Munthu wa Mulungu, mfumu ikuti, ‘Tsikani!’ ”

10Eliya anayankha mtsogoleriyo kuti, “Ngati ndine munthu wa Mulungu, moto utsike kuchokera kumwamba, ukupsereze iwe pamodzi ndi anthu makumi asanu akowo!” Pomwepo moto unatsikadi kuchokera kumwamba ndipo unapsereza mtsogoleriyo pamodzi ndi anthu akewo.

11Zitachitika izi, mfumu inatumanso mtsogoleri wina pamodzi ndi asilikali ake makumi asanu. Mtsogoleriyo anati kwa Eliya, “Munthu wa Mulungu, zimene mfumu ikunena ndi izi, ‘Tsikani msangamsanga!’ ”

12Eliya anayankha kuti, “Ngati ndine munthu wa Mulungu, moto utsike kuchokera kumwamba, ukupsereze iwe pamodzi ndi anthu ako makumi asanuwo!” Pomwepo moto unatsikadi kuchokera kumwamba ndipo unapsereza mtsogoleriyo pamodzi ndi anthu akewo.

13Ndipo mfumu inatumanso mtsogoleri wachitatu pamodzi ndi asilikali ake makumi asanu. Mtsogoleri wachitatuyu anakwera pa phiripo ndi kugwada pamaso pa Eliya. Iye anayankhula mopemba kuti, “Munthu wa Mulungu, chonde musandiwononge ineyo pamodzi ndi atumiki makumi asanu anuwa! 14Taonani, moto unatsika kuchokera kumwamba ndi kupsereza atsogoleri awiri pamodzi ndi anthu awo onse. Koma tsopano musawononge moyo wanga!”

15Mngelo wa Yehova anati kwa Eliya, “Pita naye, usamuope.” Choncho Eliya ananyamuka natsika naye limodzi kupita kwa mfumu.

16Eliya anawuza mfumu kuti, “Yehova akuti, ‘Chifukwa chiyani munatumiza amithenga kwa Baala-zebubu, mulungu wa ku Ekroni, kukafunsa ngati muti muchire? Kodi mu Israeli mulibe Mulungu woti nʼkukuyankhani funso lanu? Choncho, popeza mwachita izi, simudzadzuka pamene mwagonapo; mudzafa ndithu.’ ” 17Motero Ahaziya anafadi, monga mwa mawu a Yehova amene Eliya anayankhula.

Tsono popeza Ahaziya analibe mwana, Yoramu analowa ufumu mʼmalo mwake mʼchaka chachiwiri cha Yehoramu mwana wa Yehosafati mfumu ya ku Yuda. 18Ntchito zina zonse zimene Ahaziya anachita, kodi sizinalembedwe mʼbuku la mbiri ya mafumu a ku Israeli?
