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!

Psalm 20

Psalm 20[a]

For the director of music. A psalm of David.

May the Lord answer you when you are in distress;
    may the name of the God of Jacob protect you.
May he send you help from the sanctuary
    and grant you support from Zion.
May he remember all your sacrifices
    and accept your burnt offerings.[b]
May he give you the desire of your heart
    and make all your plans succeed.
May we shout for joy over your victory
    and lift up our banners in the name of our God.

May the Lord grant all your requests.

Now this I know:
    the Lord gives victory to his anointed.
He answers him from his heavenly sanctuary
    with the victorious power of his right hand.
Some trust in chariots and some in horses,
    but we trust in the name of the Lord our God.
They are brought to their knees and fall,
    but we rise up and stand firm.
Lord, give victory to the king!
    Answer us when we call!
