1 Samuel 7

Ipapo varume veKiriatijearimi vakauya, vakatora areka yaJehovha, vakaiisa kumba kwaAbhinadhabhu pagomo; vakatsaura Ereazari mwanakomana wake, kuti achengete areka yaJehovha.

VaFirisitia vanokundwa paMizipa

Kubva pamusi wokusvika kweareka paKiriatijearimi, yakagarapo nguva refu, nokuti akanga ari makore makumi maviri; imba yose yaIsiraeri ikachema kuna Jehovha.

Samueri akataura neimba yose yaIsiraeri, akati, "Kana muchida kudzokera kuna Jehovha nomoyo wenyu wose, bvisai vamwari vatorwa neAshitaroti pakati penyu, mugadzirire Jehovha moyo yenyu, mumushumire iye oga; ipapo iye uchakusunungurai pamaoko avaFirisitia." Vana vaIsiraeri vakabvisa vaBhaari neAshitaroti, vakashumira Jehovha oga.

Zvino Samueri akati, "Unganidzai vaIsiraeri vose paMizipa, ini ndikunyengetererei kuna Jehovha." Vakaunganidzana paMizipa, vakachera mvura, vakaidururira pamberi paJehovha, vakazvinyima zvokudya nomusi iwoyo, vakati ipapo, "Takatadzira Jehovha." Samueri akatonga vana vaIsiraeri paMizipa.

Zvino vaFirisitia vakati vachinzwa kuti vana vaIsiraeri vakanga vaungana paMizipa, madzishe avaFirisitia akakwira kundorwa navaIsiraeri. Vana vaIsiraeri vachinzwa vakatya vaFirisitia. Zvino vana vaIsiraeri vakati kuna Samueri, "Musarega henyu kuramba muchichema kuna Jehovha Mwari wedu nokuda kwedu, kuti atirwire pamaoko avaFirisitia."

Samueri akatora gwayana rinomwa, akagadzirira Jehovha naro chipiriso chinopiswa chose. Samueri akachema kuna Jehovha nokuda kwavaIsiraeri; Jehovha akamunzwa. 10 Samueri wakati achapisira Jehovha chipiriso chinopiswa, vaFirisitia vakaswedera kuzorwa navaIsiraeri; asi Jehovha akatinhira nokutinhira kukuru pamusoro pavaFirisitia nomusi iwoyo, akavavhundusa, vakakundwa navaIsiraeri. 11 Varume vaIsiraeri vakabuda Mizipa, vakatevera vaFirisitia, vakavaparadza kusvikira panyasi peBhetikari.

12 Zvino Samueri akatora ibwe, akarimisa pakati peMizipa neSheni, akaritumidza zita raro Ebheniezeri, achiti, "Jehovha wakatibatsira kusvikira pano." 13 VaFirisitia vakakundwa saizvozvo; havana kuzouyazve munyika yavalsiraeri; ruoko rwaJehovha rukarwa navaFirisitia mazuva ose aSamueri.

14 Namaguta akanga atorerwa vaIsiraeri navaFirisitia akadzoserwazve kuvaIsiraeri, kubva paEkironi kusvikira paGati, nenyika yavo yakasunungurwa navalsiraeri pamaoko avaFirisitia; rugare rukavapo pakati pavalsiraeri navaAmori.

15 Samueri akatonga vaIsiraeri mazuva ose oupenyu hwake. 16 Waipota gore rimwe nerimwe napaBhetieri, neGirigari, neMizipa, akatonga vaIsiraeri panzvimbo idzo dzose. 17 Akasidzokera Rama, nokuti ndipo paakanga agere; akatonga vaIsiraeri ipapo, akavakira Jehovha aritari ipapo.
