“Nazaalibwa sirina kantu

era bwe ntyo bwe ndiddayo.

Mukama ye yawa era Mukama y’aggyeewo,

erinnya lya Mukama Katonda lyebazibwe.”

Mawu a Mulungu mu Chichewa Chalero

Yobu 1:1-22

Mawu Oyamba

1Mʼdziko la Uzi munali munthu wina, dzina lake Yobu. Munthu ameneyu anali wosalakwa ndi wolungama mtima, ankaopa Mulungu ndi kupewa zoyipa. 2Anali ndi ana aamuna asanu ndi awiri ndi ana aakazi atatu, 3ndipo anali ndi nkhosa 7,000, ngamira 3,000, ngʼombe zantchito 1,000 ndi abulu aakazi 500, ndiponso anali ndi antchito ambiri. Iye anali munthu wotchuka kwambiri pakati pa anthu onse a mʼmayiko a kummawa.

4Ana ake aamuna ankachita phwando mosinthanasinthana mʼnyumba zawo, ndipo ankayitana alongo awo atatu aja kudzadya ndi kumwa nawo. 5Masiku aphwandowo atatha, Yobu ankawayitana kuti adzawayeretse. Mmamawa iye ankapereka nsembe yopsereza kuperekera mwana aliyense, poganiza kuti, “Mwina ana anga achimwa ndi kutukwana Mulungu mʼmitima yawo.” Umu ndi mmene Yobu ankachitira nthawi zonse.

Yobu Ayesedwa Koyamba

6Ana a Mulungu atabwera kudzadzionetsa pamaso pa Yehova, nayenso Satana anafika nawo limodzi. 7Yehova anati kwa Satanayo, “Kodi iwe ukuchokera kuti?”

Satana anayankha Yehova kuti, “Ndakhala ndikungoyendayenda ndi kumangozungulira mʼdzikoli.”

8Pamenepo Yehova anati kwa Satana, “Kodi unalingalirapo za mtumiki wanga Yobu? Palibe wina pa dziko lapansi wofanana naye; ndi munthu wosalakwa ndi wolungama mtima, munthu amene amaopa Mulungu ndi kupewa zoyipa.”

9Satana anayankha kuti, “Kodi Yobu amaopa Mulungu popanda chifukwa?” 10“Kodi Inu simumamuteteza iyeyo, nyumba yake ndi zonse zimene ali nazo? Mwadalitsa ntchito ya manja ake, kotero kuti nkhosa ndi ngʼombe zake zili ponseponse mʼdzikomo. 11Koma tatambasulani dzanja lanu ndi kukantha zonse ali nazo ndipo iyeyo adzakutukwanani ndithu pamaso panu.”

12Yehova anati kwa Satana, “Chabwino, tsono zonse zimene ali nazo ndaziyika mʼmanja mwako, koma iye yekhayo usamukhudze.”

Pamenepo Satana anachoka pamaso pa Yehova.

13Tsiku lina pamene ana aamuna ndi ana aakazi a Yobu ankachita phwando ndi kumwa vinyo mʼnyumba mwa mkulu wawo, 14wamthenga anabwera kwa Yobu ndipo anati, “Ngʼombe zanu zotipula ndipo abulu anu amadya chapafupi pomwepo, 15tsono panabwera Aseba kudzatithira nkhondo ndi kutenga zonse. Apha antchito ndi lupanga, ndipo ine ndekha ndiye ndapulumuka kuti ndidzakuwuzeni!”

16Iyeyo akuyankhulabe, wamthenga wina anabwera nati, “Kunagwa mphenzi ndipo yapsereza nkhosa ndi antchito anu onse, ndipo ine ndekha ndiye ndapulumuka kuti ndidzakuwuzeni!”

17Iyeyo akuyankhulabe, wamthenga wina anabwera nati, “Akasidi anadzigawa mʼmagulu atatu ankhondo ndipo anafika pa ngamira zanu ndi kuzitenga. Apha antchito anu onse ndi lupanga, ndipo ine ndekha ndiye ndapulumuka kuti ndidzakuwuzeni!”

18Iyeyo akuyankhulabe, panafikanso wamthenga wina nati, “Ana anu aamuna ndi aakazi amachita phwando ndi kumwa vinyo mʼnyumba ya mkulu wawo, 19mwadzidzidzi chinayamba chimphepo champhamvu chochokera ku chipululu, nʼkudzawomba nyumba mbali zonse zinayi. Nyumbayo yawagwera ndipo afa, ndipo ine ndekha ndiye ndapulumuka kuti ndidzakuwuzeni!”

20Atamva zimenezi, Yobu anayimirira nangʼamba mkanjo wake, ndi kumeta tsitsi lake. Kenaka anadzigwetsa pansi napembedza Mulungu, 21nati,

“Ndinatuluka maliseche mʼmimba mwa amayi anga,

namonso mʼmanda ndidzalowa wamaliseche.

Yehova ndiye anapereka ndipo Yehova watenga;

litamandike dzina la Yehova.”

22Mu zonsezi, Yobu sanachimwe kapena kunena kuti, “Mulungu walakwa.”
