Mawu a Mulungu mu Chichewa Chalero

Masalimo 2

1Nʼchifukwa chiyani anthu a mitundu ina akufuna kuchita chiwembu?
    Akonzekeranji zopanda pake anthu?
Mafumu a dziko lapansi akugwirizana nazo;
    ndipo olamulira asonkhana pamodzi
kulimbana ndi Ambuye
    ndi wodzozedwa wakeyo.
Iwo akunena kuti, “Tiyeni timasule magoli awo
    ndipo titaye zingwe zawo.”

Wokhala mmwamba akuseka;
    Ambuye akuwanyoza iwowo.
Ndipo iye awadzudzula mu mkwiyo wake
    ndi kuwaopseza mu ukali wake, kunena kuti,
“Ine ndakhazikitsa mfumu yanga
    pa Ziyoni, phiri langa loyera.”

Ine ndidzalengeza zimene Yehova walamula:

Iye anati kwa Ine, “Iwe ndiwe mwana wanga;
    lero Ine ndakhala Atate ako.
Tandipempha,
    ndipo ndidzachititsa kuti mitundu ya anthu ikhale cholowa chako;
    malekezero a dziko lapansi kuti akhale chuma chako.
Iweyo udzawalamulira ndi ndodo yaufumu yachitsulo;
    udzawaphwanya zidutswazidutswa ngati zowumba zadothi.”

10 Kotero, inu mafumu, chenjerani;
    chenjezedwani, inu olamulira a dziko lapansi.
11 Tumikirani Yehova mwa mantha
    ndi kukondwerera ulamuliro wake monjenjemera.
12 Mpsopsoneni mwanayo kuti angakwiye;
    kuti mungawonongedwe mʼnjira zanu,
pakuti ukali wake utha kuuka mʼkanthawi kochepa.
    Odala ndi onse amene amathawira kwa Iye.

Amplified Bible

Psalm 2

The Reign of the Lord’s Anointed.

1Why are the [a]nations in an [b]uproar [in turmoil against God],
And why do the people devise a vain and hopeless plot?

The kings of the earth take their stand;
And the rulers take counsel together
Against the Lord and His Anointed (the Davidic King, the Messiah, the Christ), saying,

“Let us break apart their [divine] bands [of restraint]
And cast away their cords [of control] from us.”


He who sits [enthroned] in the heavens laughs [at their rebellion];
The [Sovereign] [c]Lord scoffs at them [and in supreme contempt He mocks them].

Then He will speak to them in His [profound] anger
And terrify them with His displeasure, saying,

“Yet as for Me, I have anointed and firmly installed My King
Upon Zion, My holy mountain.”


“I will declare the decree of the Lord:
He said to Me, ‘You are My Son;
This day [I proclaim] I have begotten You.

‘Ask of Me, and I will assuredly give [You] the nations as Your inheritance,
And the ends of the earth as Your possession.

‘You shall break them with a rod of iron;
You shall shatter them [in pieces] like earthenware.’”

10 
Now therefore, O kings, act wisely;
Be instructed and take warning, O leaders (judges, rulers) of the earth.
11 
Worship the Lord and serve Him with reverence [with awe-inspired fear and submissive wonder];
Rejoice [yet do so] with trembling.
12 
Kiss (pay respect to) the [d]Son, so that He does not become angry, and you perish in the way,
For His wrath may soon be kindled and set aflame.
How blessed [fortunate, prosperous, and favored by God] are all those who take refuge in Him!

  1. Psalm 2:1 Or Gentiles.
  2. Psalm 2:1 I.e. a confusion of voices.
  3. Psalm 2:4 Heb Adonai.
  4. Psalm 2:12 The word in the original is bar, taken to be the Aramaic for “son.” But it is surprising that an Aramaic word would be used here. The ancient rabbis maintained that a different word with the same spelling in Hebrew was intended, whose meaning is “pure.” They claimed that it is a reference to the Torah, on the ground that all the words in the Torah are pure.
