Psalm 13

Prayer for Help in Trouble.

For the choir director. A Psalm of David.

1How long, O Lord? Will You forget me forever?
How long will You hide Your face from me?
How long shall I take counsel in my soul,
Having sorrow in my heart all the day?
How long will my enemy be exalted over me?

Consider and answer me, O Lord my God;
Enlighten my eyes, or I will sleep the sleep of death,
And my enemy will say, “I have overcome him,”
And my adversaries will rejoice when I am shaken.

But I have trusted in Your lovingkindness;
My heart shall rejoice in Your salvation.
I will sing to the Lord,
Because He has dealt bountifully with me.

Mawu a Mulungu mu Chichewa Chalero

Masalimo 13

Kwa mtsogoleri wa mayimbidwe. Salimo la Davide.

1Mpaka liti Yehova? Kodi mudzandiyiwala mpaka kalekale?
    Mpaka liti mudzandibisira nkhope yanu?
Ndidzalimbana ndi maganizo anga
    ndi kukhala ndi chisoni mu mtima mwanga tsiku lililonse mpaka liti?
    Mpaka liti adani anga adzandipambana?

Ndiyangʼaneni ndi kundiyankha, Inu Yehova Mulungu wanga.
    Walitsani maso anga kuti ndingafe;
mdani wanga adzati, “Ndamugonjetsa,”
    ndipo adani anga adzakondwera pamene ine ndagwa.

Koma ndikudalira chikondi chanu chosasinthika;
    mtima wanga umakondwera ndi chipulumutso chanu.
Ine ndidzayimbira Yehova
    pakuti wandichitira zokoma.
