1 The Lord is king!
Let the nations tremble!
He sits on his throne between the cherubim.
Let the whole earth quake!
2 The Lord sits in majesty in Jerusalem,[a]
exalted above all the nations.
3 Let them praise your great and awesome name.
Your name is holy!
4 Mighty King, lover of justice,
you have established fairness.
You have acted with justice
and righteousness throughout Israel.[b]
5 Exalt the Lord our God!
Bow low before his feet, for he is holy!
6 Moses and Aaron were among his priests;
Samuel also called on his name.
They cried to the Lord for help,
and he answered them.
7 He spoke to Israel from the pillar of cloud,
and they followed the laws and decrees he gave them.
8 O Lord our God, you answered them.
You were a forgiving God to them,
but you punished them when they went wrong.
9 Exalt the Lord our God,
and worship at his holy mountain in Jerusalem,
for the Lord our God is holy!
mitundu ya anthu injenjemere;
Iye wakhala pa mpando wake waufumu, pakati pa akerubi,
dziko lapansi ligwedezeke.
2 Mʼziyoni wamkulu ndi Yehova;
Iye ndi wokwezeka pamwamba pa mitundu yonse ya anthu.
3 Anthu atamande dzina lanu lalikulu ndi loopsa kwambiri,
Iye ndi woyera.
4 Mfumu yamphamvu, iyo imakonda chilungamo
Inu mwakhazikitsa khalidwe losakondera;
mwachita zolungama ndi zoyenera mwa Yakobo.
5 Kwezani Yehova Mulungu wathu
ndipo mulambireni pa mapazi ake;
Iye ndi woyera.
6 Mose ndi Aaroni anali ena mwa ansembe ake,
Samueli anali pamodzi ndi iwo amene anayitana pa dzina lake;
iwo anayitana Yehova
ndipo Iyeyo anawayankha.
7 Iye anayankhula nawo kuchokera mʼchipilala cha mtambo;
iwo anasunga malamulo ake ndi zophunzitsa zomwe anawapatsa.
8 Inu Yehova Mulungu wathu,
Inu kwa Israeli munali Mulungu wokhululuka,
ngakhale munawalanga pa zochita zawo zoyipa.
9 Kwezani Yehova Mulungu wathu
ndipo mumulambire pa phiri lake loyera,
pakuti Yehova Mulungu wathu ndi woyera.
