Mawu a Mulungu mu Chichewa Chalero

Masalimo 52

Kwa mtsogoleri wa mayimbidwe, ndakatulo ya Davide; pamene Doegi Mwedomu anapita kwa Sauli ndi kunena kuti “Davide wapita ku nyumba ya Ahimeleki.”

1Nʼchifukwa chiyani ukudzitamandira ndi zoyipa, iwe munthu wamphamvu?
    Nʼchifukwa chiyani ukudzitamandira tsiku lonse,
    iwe munthu wochititsa manyazi pamaso pa Mulungu?
Tsiku lonse umakhalira kuganizira za kuwononga ena;
    lilime lako lili ngati lumo lakuthwa,
    ntchito yako nʼkunyenga.
Iwe umakonda choyipa mʼmalo mwa kuyankhula choonadi.
    Umakonda kunama kupambana kuyankhula zoona.
            Sela
Umakonda mawu onse opweteka,
    iwe lilime lachinyengo!

Zoonadi Mulungu adzakutsitsa kupita ku chiwonongeko chamuyaya:
    iye adzakukwatula ndi kukuchotsa mʼtenti yako;
    iye adzakuzula kuchoka mʼdziko la amoyo.
Olungama adzaona zimenezi ndi kuchita mantha;
    adzamuseka nʼkumanena kuti,
“Pano tsopano pali munthu
    amene sanayese Mulungu linga lake,
koma anakhulupirira chuma chake chambiri
    nalimbika kuchita zoyipa!”

Koma ine ndili ngati mtengo wa olivi
    wobiriwira bwino mʼnyumba ya Mulungu;
ndimadalira chikondi chosatha cha Mulungu
    kwa nthawi za nthawi.
Ine ndidzakutamandani kwamuyaya chifukwa cha zimene mwachita;
    chifukwa cha zimene mwachita; mʼdzina lanu ndidzayembekezera
    pakuti dzina lanulo ndi labwino. Ndidzakutamandani pamaso pa oyera mtima anu.

King James Version

Psalm 52

1Why boastest thou thyself in mischief, O mighty man? the goodness of God endureth continually.

The tongue deviseth mischiefs; like a sharp razor, working deceitfully.

Thou lovest evil more than good; and lying rather than to speak righteousness. Selah.

Thou lovest all devouring words, O thou deceitful tongue.

God shall likewise destroy thee for ever, he shall take thee away, and pluck thee out of thy dwelling place, and root thee out of the land of the living. Selah.

The righteous also shall see, and fear, and shall laugh at him:

Lo, this is the man that made not God his strength; but trusted in the abundance of his riches, and strengthened himself in his wickedness.

But I am like a green olive tree in the house of God: I trust in the mercy of God for ever and ever.

I will praise thee for ever, because thou hast done it: and I will wait on thy name; for it is good before thy saints.
