(src)="6"> Describe Jesus ’ illustration of the owner of the vineyard .
(trg)="6"> 1 , 2 . ( a ) Mutaluse nguli ya Jesu ya muñaa simu ya veine . ( b ) Likande le , libonisa cwañi kalemeno ka bufani ni sishemo ?

(src)="7"> A WINEGROWER went to the marketplace early one morning to hire men to work in his vineyard .
(trg)="8"> Abasepisa kubaholisa masheleñi a palo yeñwi , mi balumela kumubelekela .

(src)="8"> The men he found agreed to the wage he offered and went to work .
(trg)="10"> Asepisa baana bao kaufela kuli naaka bafa tuwelo yende .

(src)="9"> The owner needed more workers , however , and returned to the marketplace throughout the day to hire more and more men , offering a fair wage even to those whom he hired at the end of the afternoon .
(trg)="11"> Ka nako ya manzibwana , muñaa simu akopanya babeleki kaufela kuli abalife masheleñi abona .

(src)="10"> When evening came , he gathered the workers together to give them their wages , and he gave the same amount to each of them , whether they had labored many hours or just one .
(trg)="12"> Mi kusina taba ni kuli nebabelekile lizazi kaufela kamba nebabelekile feela ka hora iliñwi , muuna yo naanani sishemo , afa mañi ni mañi wa babeleki bao pene yelikanelela .

(trg)="13"> Niteñi , baana bane bakalile kubeleka kakusasana bakala kubilaela , kono muñaa simu ali ku yomuñwi wabona : ‘ Kana ne lu si ka lumelelana dinari i liñwi ?

(src)="12"> The winegrower replied : ‘ Did you not agree to the wage I offered ?
(trg)="14"> Kana ha ni na swanelo ya ku itusisa za ka mo ni latela ?

(src)="13"> Do I not have the right to give all my workers whatever I want ?
(trg)="15"> Kamba u shwa muna kabakala bunde bwa ka ? ’ — Mat .

(src)="14"> Are you envious because I am generous ? ’ ​ — Matt . 20 : 1 - 15 , ftn .
(trg)="16"> 20 : 1 - 15 .

(src)="16"> Jesus ’ parable reminds us of one of Jehovah’s qualities that is often mentioned in the Bible ​ — his “ undeserved kindness . ”
(trg)="17"> Nguli ya Jesu ye , iluhupulisa kalemeno kakañwi ka Jehova kakabulezwi hañata mwa Bibele , sona ‘ sishemo sahae . ’

(src)="17"> ( Read 2 Corinthians 6 : 1 . )
(trg)="18"> ( Mubale 2 Makorinte 6 : 1 . )

(src)="18"> The workers who had labored only one hour did not seem to merit receiving the full wage , but the owner of the vineyard showed them extraordinary kindness .
(trg)="19"> Babeleki bane basebelize hora iliñwi feela nebasa swaneli kuamuhela tuwelo yetezi , kono muñaa simu ya veine naababonisize sishemo sesituna hahulu .

(src)="19"> Regarding the word for “ undeserved kindness , ” which is translated “ grace ” in many Bible versions , one scholar wrote : “ The whole basic idea of the word is that of a free and undeserved gift , of something given to a man unearned and unmerited . ”
(trg)="20"> Ka za linzwi la ‘ sishemo sesituna , ” lelitolokiwanga kuli “ musa ” mwa litoloko zeñata za Bibele , caziba yomuñwi naañozi kuli : “ Muhupulo o mwa linzwi leo ki wa mpo yefiwa feela kamba yesika libelelwa , ili nto yefiwa mutu asika ibelekela kamba yesaswaneli kufiwa ku yena . ”

(src)="20"> 3 , 4 .
(trg)="21"> 3 , 4 .

(src)="21"> Why and how has Jehovah shown undeserved kindness toward all mankind ?
(src)="22"> The Scriptures speak of “ the free gift of God’s undeserved kindness . ”
(trg)="22"> Ki kabakalañi Jehova hanaabonisize sishemo sesituna kwa batu kaufela , mi naaezize cwalo ka mukwa ufi ?

(src)="23"> Why and how does Jehovah bestow this “ free gift ” ?
(trg)="23"> Bibele ibulela kuli sishemo sesituna sa Mulimu ki “ mpo ya feela . ”

(src)="24"> If we met all of Jehovah’s requirements perfectly , his kindness toward us would be deserved .
(trg)="24"> Bakeñisa kuli halukoni kuutwa Mulimu ka nzila yepetehile , haluna tukelo ya kushemubiwa ki Mulimu .

(src)="25"> As it is , we fail to do so .
(trg)="25"> Kono mane sesiluswanela ki lifu .

(src)="26"> Thus , wise King Solomon wrote : “ There is no righteous man on earth who always does good and never sins . ”
(trg)="26"> Mulena Salumoni naañozi kuli : “ Ha ku na mutu ya lukile mwa lifasi , ya nzaa eza hande feela a sa fosi . ”

(src)="27"> The apostle Paul likewise stated : “ All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God , ” and “ the wages sin pays is death . ”
(trg)="27"> Hamulaho , muapositola Paulusi naabulezi kuli : “ Kakuli kaufelaa bona ba ezize sibi mi ha ba fiti fa sipimo sa kanya ya Mulimu , ” mi “ mupuzo wa sibi ki lifu . ”

(src)="28"> That is what we deserve .
(trg)="28"> Zeo ki zona zeluswanela .

(src)="29"> Jehovah , however , expressed his love toward fallen mankind in an incomparable act of undeserved kindness .
(trg)="29"> Kono bakeñisa kuli Jehova ulatile hahulu batu , naalumile “ Mwanaa hae wa libanda ” kuli ato lushwela .

(src)="30"> He sent his greatest gift of all , “ his only - begotten Son , ” to earth to die in our behalf .
(trg)="30"> Yeo ki kezo yebonisize hahulu kuli Mulimu unani sishemo sesituna kwa batu .

(src)="31"> So Paul wrote concerning Jesus that he is “ now crowned with glory and honor for having suffered death , so that by God’s undeserved kindness he might taste death for everyone . ”
(trg)="31"> Kacwalo , Paulusi naañozi ka za Jesu kuli : “ Cwale sa apesizwe kanya ni likute kabakala ku nyanda ku isa lifu , kuli ka sishemo sa Mulimu a kone ku lupa lifu kabakala batu kaufela . ”

(src)="32"> Yes , “ the gift God gives is everlasting life by Christ Jesus our Lord . ” ​ — Rom . 6 : 23b .
(trg)="32"> Ka niti , “ mpo ya fa Mulimu ki bupilo bo bu sa feli ka Kreste Jesu Mulenaa luna . ” — Maro . 6 : 23b .

(src)="33"> 5 , 6 .
(trg)="33"> 5 , 6 .

(src)="34"> What are the results when we are ruled ( a ) by sin ?
(trg)="34"> Ki lika mañi zezwa mwa kubusiwa ki ( a ) sibi ?

(src)="35"> ( b ) by undeserved kindness ?
(trg)="35"> ( b ) sishemo sesituna sa Mulimu ?

(src)="36"> How did humans inherit the sinful , dying condition that plagues us all ?
(trg)="36"> Batu nebahozize cwañi sibi , ili muinelo otahisa lifu lelilukataza hahulu kaufelaa luna ?

(src)="37"> The Bible explains : “ By the trespass of the one man [ Adam ] death ruled as king ” over Adam’s descendants .
(trg)="37"> Bibele italusa kuli : “ Ka foso ya mutu a li muñwi [ Adama ] lifu li busize sina mulena ” fahalimu a bana ba Adama .

(src)="38"> Happily , though , we can choose no longer to be ruled , or dominated , by sin .
(trg)="38"> Kono nto yetabisa kikuli ka nako yacwale lwakona kuiketela kusabusiwa ki sibi , kamba kuzamaiswa ki sona .

(src)="39"> By exercising faith in Christ’s ransom sacrifice , we place ourselves under the rule of Jehovah’s undeserved kindness .
(trg)="39"> Ka kubonisa tumelo mwa sitabelo sa tiululo sa Kreste , luiketela kuzamaiswa ki puso ya Jehova ya sishemo sesituna .

(src)="40"> How so ?
(trg)="40"> Ka mukwa ufi ?

(src)="41"> “ Where sin abounded , undeserved kindness abounded still more .
(trg)="41"> Bibele ili : “ Mo ne ku atile sibi , ni sishemo sa Mulimu ni sona sa ata hahulu ni ku fita .

(src)="42"> To what end ?
(trg)="42"> Ka mulelo ufi ?

(src)="43"> So that just as sin ruled as king with death , so also undeserved kindness might rule as king through righteousness leading to everlasting life through Jesus Christ . ” ​ — Rom .
(trg)="43"> Kuli sina sibi ha si busize sina mulena hamoho ni lifu , kamukwaoswana ni sishemo sa Mulimu si buse sina mulena ka ku luka ili ku isa kwa bupilo bo bu sa feli ka Jesu Kreste . ” — Maro .

(src)="44"> 5 : 20 , 21 .
(trg)="44"> 5 : 20 , 21 .

(src)="45"> Even though we remain sinners , we need not resign ourselves to having sin dominate our lives .
(trg)="45"> Nihaike kuli lusali baeza libi haluswaneli kutuhelela sibi kuluzamaisa .

(src)="46"> When we do give in to sin , we will ask Jehovah for his forgiveness .
(trg)="46"> Haiba lueza sibi , lukakupa Jehova kuli aluswalele .

(src)="47"> Paul warned Christians : “ Sin must not be master over you , seeing that you are not under law but under undeserved kindness . ”
(trg)="47"> Paulusi naalemusize Bakreste kuli : “ Sibi ha si lukeli ku mi busa , kakuli ha mu yo mwatasaa mulao kono mu mwatasaa sishemo sa Mulimu . ”

(src)="48"> Therefore , we come under the rule of undeserved kindness .
(trg)="48"> Kacwalo , lu mwatasaa puso ya sishemo sesituna sa Mulimu .

(src)="49"> With what result ?
(trg)="49"> Mi ki lika mañi zezwa mwa kueza cwalo ?

(src)="50"> Paul explained : “ The undeserved kindness of God . . . trains us to reject ungodliness and worldly desires and to live with soundness of mind and righteousness and godly devotion amid this present system of things . ” ​ — Titus 2 : 11 , 12 .
(trg)="50"> Paulusi naatalusize kuli : “ Sishemo sa Mulimu . . . si lu luta ku hana muzamao o maswe ni litakazo za lifasi ni ku lu luta ku pila ka munahano o munde ni ka ku luka ni ka ku sepahala ku Mulimu mwa muinelo wa lifasi wa cwale . ” — Tite 2 : 11 , 12 .

(src)="51"> 7 , 8 .
(trg)="51"> 7 , 8 .

(src)="52"> What does it mean that Jehovah’s undeserved kindness is “ expressed in various ways ” ?
(trg)="52"> Kutalusañi kubulela kuli sishemo sa Jehova “ si boniswa mwa linzila ze fitana - fitana ” ?

(src)="53"> ( See opening pictures . )
(trg)="53"> ( Mubone siswaniso sesi fa likepe 21 . )

(src)="54"> The apostle Peter wrote : “ To the extent that each one has received a gift , use it in ministering to one another as fine stewards of God’s undeserved kindness that is expressed in various ways . ”
(trg)="54"> Muapositola Pitrosi naañozi kuli : “ Ku likana ni mo mu fezwi mpo yo muñwi ni yo muñwi , mu itusise yona ku sebelezana sina likombwa za sishemo sa Mulimu , se si boniswa mwa linzila ze fitana - fitana . ”

(src)="55"> What does that mean ?
(trg)="55"> Taba yeo italusañi ?

(src)="56"> That whatever the nature of the trials we may face in life , Jehovah can enable us to cope with them .
(trg)="56"> Italusa kuli muliko ufi kamba ufi olukona kutalimana ni ona mwa bupilo , Jehova wakona kulutusa kuutiyela .

(src)="57"> There will always be an expression of God’s kindness that will match each trial .
(trg)="57"> Kamita kukaba ni kezo ya sishemo sa Mulimu yeka likanelela ni muliko ufi kamba ufi olutalimana ni ona .

(src)="58"> Indeed , Jehovah’s undeserved kindness is expressed in various ways .
(trg)="58"> Ka niti , sishemo sa Jehova siboniswa mwa linzila zefitana - fitana .

(src)="59"> The apostle John wrote : “ We all received from his fullness , even undeserved kindness upon undeserved kindness . ”
(trg)="59"> Muapositola Joani naañozi kuli : “ Luna kaufela lu amuhezi kwa bufumu bwa hae , mane lu amuhezi sishemo se situna fahalimwaa sishemo se siñwi se situna . ”

(src)="60"> The various expressions of Jehovah’s kindness result in our receiving many blessings .
(trg)="60"> Linzila zefitana - fitana zalubonisa ka zona Jehova sishemo sahae sesituna , lilutahiseza limbuyoti zeñata .

(src)="61"> What are some of them ?
(trg)="61"> Ki lifi zeñwi zazona limbuyoti zeo ?

(src)="62"> How do we benefit from Jehovah’s undeserved kindness , and how can we show our gratitude for it ?
(trg)="62"> Lutusiwa cwañi ki sishemo sa Jehova , mi lukona kubonisa cwañi kuli lwaitebuha sona ?

(src)="63"> Being forgiven of our sins .
(trg)="63"> Kuswalelwa libi zaluna .

(src)="64"> Because of Jehovah’s undeserved kindness , we have our sins forgiven , provided we repent and continue to put up a hard fight against our sinful inclinations .
(trg)="64"> Bakeñisa sishemo sa Jehova , libi zaluna zaswalelwanga ibile feela lwabaka ni kuzwelapili kueza molukonela kaufela kuli lusike lwakutela kueza sibi seo .
(trg)="65"> ( Mubale 1 Joani 1 : 8 , 9 . )

(src)="65"> God’s mercy should fill us with gratitude and move us to glorify him .
(trg)="66"> Sishemo sa Mulimu siswanela kulutusa kuitebuha ni kulususueza kumulumbeka .

(src)="66"> Writing to fellow anointed Christians , Paul stated : “ [ Jehovah ] rescued us from the authority of the darkness and transferred us into the kingdom of his beloved Son , by means of whom we have our release by ransom , the forgiveness of our sins . ”
(trg)="67"> Hanaañolela Bakreste babatozizwe sina yena , Paulusi naabulezi kuli : “ [ Jehova ] naa lu lamulezi kwa maata a lififi ni ku lu shimbululela mwa mubuso wa Mwanaa hae ya latwa , yo ka yena lu fumani tukuluho ya luna ka tiululo , yona swalelo ya libi za luna . ”

(src)="67"> Being forgiven of our sins opens the door to many other wonderful blessings .
(trg)="68"> Kuswalelwa libi zaluna kulutahiseza limbuyoti zeñwi zende zeñata .

(src)="68"> What do we enjoy because of God’s undeserved kindness ?
(trg)="69"> Ki lika mañi zeluikola bakeñisa sishemo sesituna sa Mulimu ?

(src)="69"> Having a peaceful relationship with God .
(trg)="70"> Kuba ni silikani sesinde ni Mulimu .

(src)="70"> In our sinful state , from birth we were enemies of God .
(trg)="71"> Bakeñisa kuli lupepilwe inze lunani sibi , lubile lila za Mulimu kuzwa ka nako yeo .

(src)="71"> Paul acknowledged this : “ When we were enemies we became reconciled to God through the death of his Son . ”
(trg)="72"> Paulusi naaziba taba yeo , mi naabulezi kuli : “ Ha ne lu li lila , ne lu kutiselizwe ku Mulimu ka lifu la Mwanaa hae . ”

(src)="72"> This reconciliation enables us to be at peace with Jehovah .
(trg)="73"> Kukutisezwa ku Mulimu kwa , kulutahiseza kuba mwa kozo ni Jehova .

(src)="73"> Paul links this privilege to Jehovah’s undeserved kindness , stating : “ Now that we [ Christ’s anointed brothers ] have been declared righteous as a result of faith , let us enjoy peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ , through whom we also have obtained access by faith into this undeserved kindness in which we now stand . ”
(trg)="74"> Paulusi uswalisanisa tohonolo ye kwa sishemo sesituna sa Jehova , ka kubulela kuli : “ Ha u bona cwale [ luna banyani ba Kreste babatozizwe ] lu beilwe ba ba lukile kabakala tumelo , lu zweleñipili ku ba mwa kozo ni Mulimu ka Mulenaa luna Jesu Kreste , yo ka yena hape lu konile ku sutelela , kabakala tumelo , kwa sishemo sa Mulimu ko lu yemi ka nako ye . ”
