Yohana 8:7.

KISWAHILI: KUMHUKUMU NDUGU YAKO KUJISHIKA TUMBONI.

Chanzo cha msemo huo chaangalia hukumu ya watu ambao ni ndugu. Huwa kuna kazi ngumu ya kuvumilia kwa sababu mwamuzi au hakimu huyo humwangalia ndugu yake na kumuonea aibu.

Kwa hiyo basi, mtu huyo hujishika tumboni katika kuusema wazi ukweli. Ndiyo maana watu husema kwamba, ‘kumhukumu ndugu yako, kujishika tumboni,’ kwa sababu ya ugumu wa kazi hiyo.

Msemo huo hulinganishwa kwa mtu ambaye huusema wazi ukweli ahukumupo watu wakiwemo ndugu zake. Mtu huyo huvumilia kwa kufanya utafiti wa maneno hayo vizuri, kabla hajatoa hukumu yake.

Akiupata ukweli huo huusema wasi. Haoni aibu katika kuusema ukweli huo ahukumupo ndugu zake. Kwa hiyo basi, mtu huyo afahamu kutoa hukumu ya haki kwa ndugu zake, kwa sababu aelewa kuwa, ‘kumhukumu ndugu yako kujishika tumboni.’

Msemo huo hufundisha watu juu ya kuelewa vizuri juu ya kutoa hukumu za haki kwa watu kwa kuusema ukweli wasi wasi. Yafaa watu hao wafanye utafiti wa kuwawezesha kuuelewa ukweli wa maneno ili wautumie ukweli huo katika kutoa hukumu iliyo ya haki kwa watu wawamuao kwa kuusema wasi ukweli huo.

ENGLISH: JUDGING YOUR RELATIVE IS LIKE HOLDING STOMACH

The source of the saying is the difficulty in judging the people who are one’s relatives. There is a hard time because one is likely to favour the relative.

The person finds it to be difficult to tell the truth. That is why people say that, to judge your relative is like touching your own stomach because of of the close attachment with relatives.

The proverb can be applied to someone who clearly tells the truth and does justice to people including his/her relatives. Such a person is consonance with the words in the proverb.

The saying teaches people about a better understanding of the proper way of judging fellows by following justice and truth. Truth and justice should be the basis of the right judgement.

Luke 23: 14-55.

John 8: 7.
