Waroma 9:2.

KISWAHILI: WEMBE TUMBONI

Chanzo cha methali hiyo chaangalia wembe ulioko tumboni mwa mtu. Wembe huo humkata mwenye tumbo hilo. Kumbe huwa unamuumiza sana mtu huyo. Ndiyo maana yeye hulalamika kwa husema kwamba,  ‘wembe tumboni.’

Methali hiyo hulinganishwa kwa mtu yule aliyepata matatizo yaliyomhudhunisha moyoni mwake. Matatizo au maneno hayo, humpatia maumivu kama wembe unaomkatakata tumboni mwake mtu huyo. Maumivu hayo husababisha kwa mtu huyo kushindwa kula mpaka kutosheka. Ndiyo maana mtu huyo huhaangaika akisema hivi, ‘wembe tumboni.’

Methali hiyo hufundisha watu juu ya kuacha kuwatendea maovu wenzao, kwa sababu matendo hayo kuwaumiza wenzao, maishani mwao.

ENGLISH: A RAZOR IN THE STOMACH

This saying originated from a story of a person with a razor in his stomach. Such a razor cuts the person in the stomach and causes pain to him/her. That is why he/she complains, “a razor in the stomach.”

The saying is likened to a person who went through problems that caused grief to him/her. Such problems, or words, give him/her pains like a razor that cuts his/her stomach. The pains make the person not to eat well. That is why the person in such situation remarks, “a razor in the stomach.”

The proverb teaches people to stop doing bad things to others because bad things hurt others in their lives.

Romans 9: 2.
