Mawu a Mulungu mu Chichewa Chalero

Masalimo 131

Nyimbo yoyimba pokwera ku Yerusalemu. Salimo la Davide.

1Inu Yehova, mtima wanga siwodzikuza,
    maso anga siwonyada;
sinditengeteka mtima
    ndi zinthu zapamwamba ndi zodabwitsa.
Koma moyo wanga ndawutontholetsa
    ndi kuwukhalitsa chete ngati mwana amene amayi ake amuletsa kuyamwa,
    moyo wanga mʼkati mwanga uli ngati mwana amene amuletsa kuyamwa.

Yembekeza Yehova, iwe Israeli,
    kuyambira tsopano mpaka muyaya.

New International Reader's Version

Psalm 131

Psalm 131

A song for those who go up to Jerusalem to worship the Lord. A psalm of David.

Lord, my heart isn’t proud.
    My eyes aren’t proud either.
I don’t concern myself with important matters.
    I don’t concern myself with things that are too wonderful for me.
I have made myself calm and content
    like a young child in its mother’s arms.
    Deep down inside me, I am as content as a young child.

Israel, put your hope in the Lord
    both now and forever.
