Mawu a Mulungu mu Chichewa Chalero

Masalimo 123

Nyimbo yoyimba pokwera ku Yerusalemu.

1Ndikweza maso anga kwa Inu,
    kwa Inu amene mumakhala kumwamba.
Taonani, monga momwe maso a akapolo amayangʼana mʼdzanja la mbuye wawo,
    monga momwenso maso a mdzakazi amayangʼana mʼdzanja la dona wake,
choncho maso athu ali kwa Yehova Mulungu wathu,
    mpaka atichitire chifundo.

Mutichitire chifundo, Inu Yehova mutichitire chifundo,
    pakuti tapirira chitonzo chachikulu.
Ife tapirira mnyozo wambiri kuchokera kwa anthu odzikuza,
    chitonzo chachikulu kuchokera kwa anthu onyada.

Amplified Bible

Psalm 123

Prayer for the Lord’s Help.

A Song of [a]Ascents.

1Unto you I lift up my eyes,
O You who are enthroned in the heavens!

Behold, as the eyes of servants look to the hand of their master,
And as the eyes of a maid to the hand of her mistress,
So our eyes look to the Lord our God,
Until He is gracious and favorable toward us.


Be gracious to us, O Lord, be gracious and favorable toward us,
For we are greatly filled with contempt.

Our soul is greatly filled
With the scoffing of those who are at ease,
And with the contempt of the proud [who disregard God’s law].
