Ayubu 2:9-10.

KISWAHILI: MTU ASIYE NA ROHO

Chanzo cha methali hiyo chaangalia mtu ambaye hukasirika upesi moyoni mwake akikosewa. Mtu huyo ni mwepezi sana wa hukasirika akikosewa hata kidogo tu na wenzake. Huwa hawezi kuvumilia kwa sababu ya roho yake kukosa ukomavu, wa kuishi kwa kupatana vizuri na wenzake. Ndiyo maana watu humwita mtu hiyo,  kwamba ni ‘mtu asiye na roho.’

Methali hiyo hulinganishwa kwa mtu asiyekuwa na uvumilivu wa kumwezesha kuishi kwa furaha na amani na wenzake. Mtu huyo huwa amekasirika moyoni mwake kwa sababu ya kuwakasirikia wenzake waliomkosea, hata kama amekosewa kwa kiwango kidogo kiasi gani.

Mtu huyo akikosewa na wenzake, huwa hasahau upesi kwa sababu ya roho yake hiyo kukosa ukomavu wa kuwasamehe wenzake waliomkosea moyoni mwake. Mtu huyo hupenda kuishi peke yake nyumbani kwake, kwa sababu ya kukosa roho ya kuishi kwa amani na wenzake.

Methali hiyo hufundisha watu juu ya kuwa na uvumilivu wa kuwawezesha kuishi na watu kwa furaha na amani. Uvumilivu huo huwajengea watu hao upendo mioyoni mwao wa kuwawezesha kuwasamehe wenzao waliowakosea. Kwa kufanya hivyo, wataweza kuishi na watu kwa amani iwezayo kuziendeleza vizuri familia zao.

Ayubu 2:9-10.

ENGLISH: ONE WITHOUT A SOUL

The above proverb talks about people who get annoyed quickly whenever they are offended. They are intolerant and they get infuriated easily by their peers. A person who possesses such a character is usually referred to as “one without a soul.”

The proverb is comparable to a person who lacks enough patience to enable him/her live happily with other people. When such a person is upset by others, even if just a little bit, he normally gets filled with so much resentment against them.

When the person is offended by his/her colleagues, he/she does not quickly forget it because of his/her weak soul that lacks the spirit of forgiveness. A person of that nature prefers to live in solitude because he/she is deficient of the spirit of peace to live with other people.

Such proverb teaches people about the importance of having patience because it enables them to relate happily and peacefully with others. The spirit of patience builds in people’s hearts the ability to forgive their trespassers, which results in peaceful co-existence among them as well as in the improvement of their families.

Job 2: 9-10.
