Mawu a Mulungu mu Chichewa Chalero

Masalimo 20

Kwa mtsogoleri wa mayimbidwe. Salimo la Davide.

1Yehova akuyankhe pamene uli pa msautso;
    dzina la Mulungu wa Yakobo likuteteze.
Iye atumize thandizo kuchokera ku malo ake opatulika;
    akugwirizize kuchokera ku Ziyoni.
Iye akumbukire nsembe zako zonse
    ndipo alandire nsembe zako zopsereza.
            Sela
Akupatse chokhumba cha mtima wako
    ndipo akuthandize kuti zonse wakonza zichitike.
Ife tidzafuwula ndi chimwemwe pamene iwe wapambana
    ndipo tidzanyamula mbendera zathu mʼdzina la Mulungu wathu,
Yehova ayankhe zopempha zako zonse.

Tsopano ndadziwa kuti Yehova amapulumutsa wodzozedwa wake;
    Iye amamuyankha kuchokera kumwamba ku malo ake opatulika
    ndi mphamvu yopulumutsa ya dzanja lake lamanja.
Ena amadalira magaleta ndipo ena akavalo
    koma ife tidzadalira dzina la Yehova Mulungu wathu.
Iwo amagonjetsedwa ndi kugwa,
    koma ife timadzuka ndi kuyima chilili.

Inu Yehova, pulumutsani mfumu!
    Tiyankheni pamene tikuyitanani!

Amplified Bible

Psalm 20

Prayer for Victory over Enemies.

To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David.

1[a]May the Lord answer you (David) in the day of trouble!
May the name of the God of Jacob set you securely on high [and defend you in battle]!

May He send you help from the sanctuary (His dwelling place)
And support and strengthen you from Zion!

May He remember all your meal offerings
And accept your burnt offering. Selah.


May He grant you your heart’s desire
And fulfill all your plans.

We will sing joyously over your victory,
And in the name of our God we will set up our banners.
May the Lord fulfill all your petitions.


Now I know that the Lord saves His anointed;
He will answer him from His holy heaven
With the saving strength of His right hand.

Some trust in chariots and some in horses,
But we will remember and trust in the name of the Lord our God.

They have bowed down and fallen,
But we have risen and stood upright.

O Lord, save [the [b]king];
May the [c]King answer us in the day we call.
