The Message

Psalm 15

A David Psalm

1God, who gets invited
    to dinner at your place?
How do we get on your guest list?

“Walk straight,
    act right,
        tell the truth.

3-4 “Don’t hurt your friend,
    don’t blame your neighbor;
        despise the despicable.

“Keep your word even when it costs you,
    make an honest living,
        never take a bribe.

“You’ll never get
blacklisted
if you live like this.”

Masalimo 15

Salimo la Davide.

1Yehova, ndani angathe kukhala mʼmalo anu opatulika?
    Kodi ndani angathe kukhala mʼphiri lanu loyera?

Munthu wa makhalidwe abwino,
    amene amachita zolungama,
woyankhula choonadi chochokera mu mtima mwake,
    ndipo mʼkamwa mwake simutuluka mawu osinjirira,
amene sachitira choyipa mnansi wake
    kapena kufalitsa mbiri yoyipa ya munthu mnzake,
amene sapereka ulemu kwa munthu woyipa.
    Koma amalemekeza amene amaopa Yehova,
amene amakwaniritsa zomwe walonjeza
    ngakhale pamene zikumupweteka,
amene amakongoletsa ndalama zake popanda chiwongoladzanja
    ndipo salandira chiphuphu pofuna kutsutsa anthu osalakwa.

Iye amene amachita zinthu zimenezi
    sadzagwedezeka konse.
