Mawu a Mulungu mu Chichewa Chalero

Masalimo 1


Masalimo 1–41

1Wodala munthu
    amene satsatira uphungu wa anthu ochimwa,
kapena kuyima mʼnjira ya anthu oyipa,
    kapena kukhala mʼmagulu a anthu onyoza.
Koma chikondwerero chake chili mʼmalamulo a Yehova
    ndipo mʼmalamulo akewo amalingaliramo usana ndi usiku.
Iye ali ngati mtengo wodzalidwa mʼmbali mwa mitsinje ya madzi,
    umene umabereka zipatso zake pa nyengo yake
ndipo masamba ake safota.
    Chilichonse chimene amachita amapindula nacho.
Sizitero ndi anthu oyipa!
    Iwo ali ngati mungu
    umene umawuluzidwa ndi mphepo.
Kotero anthu oyipa sadzatha kuyima pa chiweruzo,
    kapena anthu ochimwa mu msonkhano wa anthu olungama.

Pakuti Yehova amayangʼanira mayendedwe a anthu olungama,
    koma mayendedwe a anthu oyipa adzawonongeka.

Amplified Bible

Psalm 1

Book One

The Righteous and the Wicked Contrasted.

1[a]Blessed [fortunate, prosperous, and favored by God] is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked [following their advice and example],
Nor stand in the path of sinners,
Nor sit [down to rest] in the seat of [b]scoffers (ridiculers).

But his delight is in the law of the Lord,
And on His law [His precepts and teachings] he [habitually] meditates day and night.

And he will be like a tree firmly planted [and fed] by streams of water,
Which yields its fruit in its season;
Its leaf does not wither;
And in whatever he does, he prospers [and comes to maturity].

The wicked [those who live in disobedience to God’s law] are not so,
But they are like the chaff [worthless and without substance] which the wind blows away.

Therefore the wicked will not stand [unpunished] in the judgment,
Nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.

For the Lord knows and fully approves the way of the righteous,
But the way of the wicked shall perish.

Notas al pie

  1. Psalm 1:1 This has been called “The Preface Psalm” because in some respects it introduces the complete book of Psalms as a godly message. It opens with a benediction, “Blessed,” as does the Sermon on the Mount (Matt 5:3).
  2. Psalm 1:1 I.e. shallow thinkers who are quick to mock or disdain.
