King James Version

Nahum 1

1The burden of Nineveh. The book of the vision of Nahum the Elkoshite.

God is jealous, and the Lord revengeth; the Lord revengeth, and is furious; the Lord will take vengeance on his adversaries, and he reserveth wrath for his enemies.

The Lord is slow to anger, and great in power, and will not at all acquit the wicked: the Lord hath his way in the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds are the dust of his feet.

He rebuketh the sea, and maketh it dry, and drieth up all the rivers: Bashan languisheth, and Carmel, and the flower of Lebanon languisheth.

The mountains quake at him, and the hills melt, and the earth is burned at his presence, yea, the world, and all that dwell therein.

Who can stand before his indignation? and who can abide in the fierceness of his anger? his fury is poured out like fire, and the rocks are thrown down by him.

The Lord is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him.

But with an overrunning flood he will make an utter end of the place thereof, and darkness shall pursue his enemies.

What do ye imagine against the Lord? he will make an utter end: affliction shall not rise up the second time.

10 For while they be folden together as thorns, and while they are drunken as drunkards, they shall be devoured as stubble fully dry.

11 There is one come out of thee, that imagineth evil against the Lord, a wicked counsellor.

12 Thus saith the Lord; Though they be quiet, and likewise many, yet thus shall they be cut down, when he shall pass through. Though I have afflicted thee, I will afflict thee no more.

13 For now will I break his yoke from off thee, and will burst thy bonds in sunder.

14 And the Lord hath given a commandment concerning thee, that no more of thy name be sown: out of the house of thy gods will I cut off the graven image and the molten image: I will make thy grave; for thou art vile.

15 Behold upon the mountains the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace! O Judah, keep thy solemn feasts, perform thy vows: for the wicked shall no more pass through thee; he is utterly cut off.

Mawu a Mulungu mu Chichewa Chalero

Nahumu 1

1Uthenga wonena za Ninive. Buku la masomphenya a Nahumu wa ku Elikosi.

Mkwiyo wa Yehova pa Ninive

Yehova ndi Mulungu wansanje
ndiponso wobwezera;
    Yehova amabwezera ndipo ndi waukali.
Yehova amabwezera adani ake
    ndipo ukali wake umakhala nthawi zonse pa adani akewo.
Yehova sakwiya msanga koma ndi wa mphamvu yayikulu;
    ndipo sadzalola kuti munthu
    wolakwa asalangidwe.
Iye amayenda mʼkamvuluvulu ndi mʼnamondwe,
    ndipo mitambo ndi fumbi la ku mapazi ake.
Amalamulira nyanja ndipo imawuma;
amawumitsa mitsinje yonse.
Zomera za ku Basani ndi Karimeli zimawuma
    ndipo maluwa a ku Lebanoni amafota.
Mapiri amagwedera pamaso pake
ndipo zitunda zimasungunuka.
Dziko lapansi limanjenjemera pamaso pake,
    dziko lonse ndi zonse zokhala mʼmenemo.
Ndani angathe kuyima pamaso pake Iye akalusa?
    Ndani angapirire mkwiyo wake woopsa?
Ukali wake ukuyaka ngati moto;
    matanthwe akunyeka pamaso pake.

Yehova ndi wabwino,
    ndiye kothawirako nthawi ya masautso.
Amasamalira amene amamudalira,
koma ndi madzi achigumula choopsa
Iye adzawononga adani ake (Ninive);
    adzapirikitsira adani ake ku malo a mdima.

Chiwembu chilichonse chimene akukonzekera kumuchitira Yehova
    adzachiwononga kotheratu;
    msautso sudzabweranso kachiwiri.
10 Iwo adzakodwa mu ziyangoyango za minga
    ndipo adzaledzera ndi vinyo wawo;
    adzatenthedwa ngati ziputu zowuma.
11 Kwa iwe, Ninive, kunachokera munthu wa cholinga choyipa,
    wofuna kuchitira Yehova chiwembu,
    amene amapereka uphungu woyipa.
12 Yehova akuti,
“Ngakhale Asiriyawo ali ndi abwenzi,
    kaya iwowo ndi ambiri,
    koma adzawonongedwa ndi kutheratu.
Ngakhale ndinakuzunza iwe Yuda,
    sindidzakuzunzanso.
13 Tsopano ndidzathyola goli lake pa khosi lako
    ndipo ndidzadula maunyolo ako.”

14 Yehova walamulira za iwe, Ninive kuti,
    “Sudzakhala ndi zidzukulu
    zimene zidzadziwike ndi dzina lako.
Ndidzawononga zifanizo zosema ndi mafano owumba
    amene ali mʼnyumba ya milungu yako.
Ine ndidzakukumbira manda
    chifukwa ndiwe woyipitsitsa.”
15 Taonani, pa phiripo,
    mapazi a munthu amene akubweretsa nkhani yabwino,
    amene akulengeza za mtendere!
Inu anthu a ku Yuda, chitani madyerero anu
    ndipo kwaniritsani malumbiro anu.
Anthu oyipa sadzakuthiraninso nkhondo;
    iwo adzawonongedwa kotheratu.
