Nyika yose yakanga ino rurimi rumwe nokutaura kumwe. Zvino vakati vachitamira mabvazuva, vakawana bani munyika yeShinari, vakagarako. Vakataurirana, vachiti, "Uyai, ngatiite zvidhina, tizvipise kwazvo." Zvidhina zvakava mabwe avo, nebitumini rakava dope ravo. Vakati, "Uyai, ngatizviva­kire guta, norusvingo, runomusoro uno­svikira kudenga; tizvimutsire mukuru­mbira, kuti tirege kupararira panyika yose."

Ipapo Jehovha wakaburuka kuzota­rira guta norusvingo, rwakanga ruchiva­kwa navanakomana vavanhu. Jehovha akati, "Tarirai, vanhu ava ndivamwe, vanorurimi rumwe vose; zvino ndizvo zvavanotanga kuita; zvino hakuchina chi­nhu chavangada kuita chavangadziviswa. Hendei, tiburuke, tinopesanisa rurimi rwavo ipapo, kuti varege kunzwana kana votaurirana." Jehovha akavaparadzira ipapo, vakapararira panyika yose, vaka­rega kuvaka guta ravo. Naizvozvo va­karitumidza Bhabheri, nokuti ipapo Jeho­vha wakapesanisa rurimi rwenyika yose; Jehovha akavaparadzira ipapo, vakaenda kunyika dzose.
