New International Reader's Version

Psalm 23

Psalm 23

A psalm of David.

The Lord is my shepherd. He gives me everything I need.
    He lets me lie down in fields of green grass.
He leads me beside quiet waters.
    He gives me new strength.
He guides me in the right paths
    for the honor of his name.
Even though I walk
    through the darkest valley,
I will not be afraid.
    You are with me.
Your shepherd’s rod and staff
    comfort me.

You prepare a feast for me
    right in front of my enemies.
You pour oil on my head.
    My cup runs over.
I am sure that your goodness and love will follow me
    all the days of my life.
And I will live in the house of the Lord
    forever.

Masalimo 23

Salimo la Davide.

1Yehova ndiye mʼbusa wanga, sindidzasowa kanthu.
    Amandigoneka pa msipu wobiriwira,
amanditsogolera ku madzi akumwa abwino,
    amatsitsimutsa moyo wanga.
Amanditsogolera mʼnjira zachilungamo
    chifukwa cha dzina lake.
Ngakhale ndiyende
    mʼchigwa cha mdima wakuda bii,
sindidzaopa choyipa,
    pakuti Inu muli ndi ine;
chibonga chanu ndi ndodo yanu
    zimanditonthoza.

Mumandikonzera chakudya
    adani anga akuona.
Mumadzoza mutu wanga ndi mafuta;
    chikho changa chimasefukira.
Zoonadi, zokoma ndi chikondi chosasinthika zidzanditsata
    masiku onse a moyo wanga,
ndipo ndidzakhala mʼNyumba ya Yehova
    kwamuyaya.
