Ogye mpaebɔ

1O Awurade, tie me mpaebɔ ne m’ahomegu. Me Nyankopɔn ne me Hene, tie me sufrɛ na boa me. O, Awurade, wote me nne anɔpa. Owia pue a, mebɔ mpae na metwɛn wo mmuae.

Wonyɛ Onyankopɔn a adebɔne sɔ w’ani, na womma bɔne ho kwan wɔ w’anim. Wokyi ahantanfo na wukyi nnebɔneyɛfo nso. Wosɛe atorofo na wubu basabasayɛfo ne asisifo animtia.

Nanso esiane wo dɔ bebrebe nti, mitumi ba wo fi. Mitumi som wo wɔ w’asɔredan kronkron no mu, na mekotow wo wɔ nidi mu.

Awurade, mewɔ atamfo bebree. Kyerɛ me kwan na menyɛ w’apɛde; kyerɛ me. Kyerɛ me kwan na memfa so. Nea m’atamfo ka no nnim. Ɔpɛ ara na wɔpɛ sɛ wɔsɛe me. Nnaadaa ne adɛfɛdɛfɛ wɔ wɔn nsɛm mu, nanso ne nyinaa yɛ awudisɛm. 10 O Onyankopɔn, bu wɔn fɔ, na twe wɔn aso. Na ma wɔn adwemmɔne mfa wɔn nkɔ ɔsɛe mu. Esiane wɔn bɔne dodow ne tia a wɔsɔre tia wo no nti, pam wɔn fi w’anim.

11 Nanso wɔn a wonya wo nkyɛn guankɔbea no ani gye; na daa wobetumi ato dwom anigye so. Bɔ wɔn a wɔdɔ wo no ho ban. Esiane wo nti, wɔwɔ anigye. 12 Awurade, wuhyira wɔn a wotie w’asɛm. Wo dɔ bɔ wɔn ho ban sɛ kyɛm.

King James Version

Psalm 5

1Give ear to my words, O Lord, consider my meditation.

Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God: for unto thee will I pray.

My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O Lord; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up.

For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness: neither shall evil dwell with thee.

The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all workers of iniquity.

Thou shalt destroy them that speak leasing: the Lord will abhor the bloody and deceitful man.

But as for me, I will come into thy house in the multitude of thy mercy: and in thy fear will I worship toward thy holy temple.

Lead me, O Lord, in thy righteousness because of mine enemies; make thy way straight before my face.

For there is no faithfulness in their mouth; their inward part is very wickedness; their throat is an open sepulchre; they flatter with their tongue.

10 Destroy thou them, O God; let them fall by their own counsels; cast them out in the multitude of their transgressions; for they have rebelled against thee.

11 But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee.

12 For thou, Lord, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield.
