For the choir director: A psalm of David.
1 O Lord, how long will you forget me? Forever?
How long will you look the other way?
2 How long must I struggle with anguish in my soul,
with sorrow in my heart every day?
How long will my enemy have the upper hand?
3 Turn and answer me, O Lord my God!
Restore the sparkle to my eyes, or I will die.
4 Don’t let my enemies gloat, saying, “We have defeated him!”
Don’t let them rejoice at my downfall.
5 But I trust in your unfailing love.
I will rejoice because you have rescued me.
6 I will sing to the Lord
because he is good to me.
Kwa mtsogoleri wa mayimbidwe. Salimo la Davide.
1Mpaka liti Yehova? Kodi mudzandiyiwala mpaka kalekale?
Mpaka liti mudzandibisira nkhope yanu?
2 Ndidzalimbana ndi maganizo anga
ndi kukhala ndi chisoni mu mtima mwanga tsiku lililonse mpaka liti?
Mpaka liti adani anga adzandipambana?
3 Ndiyangʼaneni ndi kundiyankha, Inu Yehova Mulungu wanga.
Walitsani maso anga kuti ndingafe;
4 mdani wanga adzati, “Ndamugonjetsa,”
ndipo adani anga adzakondwera pamene ine ndagwa.
5 Koma ndikudalira chikondi chanu chosasinthika;
mtima wanga umakondwera ndi chipulumutso chanu.
6 Ine ndidzayimbira Yehova
pakuti wandichitira zokoma.
