The One who reigns above all else.
2. Shimukokota nsono
Insono (sometimes means iron& steel) are extremely hard stones or pebbles. tough, durable and strong as Iron). He chews these stones like you would with a sugar cane or something soft.

(LUKE 1:37)

8. Shimwitwa Pakalala, Shimukunta petabwa
The one to call upon for intervention in the midst of the hardest of situations, amidst the most difficult of struggle, or battles,
The One gives beyond measure.

10. Umwine nkuni na menshi- owner of all flaura, fauna and water
11. Imfumu pasha mfumu shonse, Kana besa mulopwe- King of kings and his majesty be to Him
12- Shichaibumba- self created, all knowing God
Some words are so rich, so simple but so descriptive that there might no equivalent English word to convey the deep meaning
