Mawu a Mulungu mu Chichewa Chalero

Mlaliki 1:1-18

Zapansipano Nʼzopandapake

1Mawu a Mlaliki, mwana wa Davide, mfumu ya ku Yerusalemu:

2“Zopandapake! Zopandapake!”

atero Mlaliki.

“Zopandapake kotheratu!

Zopandapake.”

3Kodi munthu amapindulanji pa ntchito zake zonse

zimene amasautsidwa nazo pansi pano?

4Mibado imabwera ndipo mibado imapita,

koma dziko lapansi limakhalapobe nthawi zonse.

5Dzuwa limatuluka ndipo dzuwa limalowa

ndipo limapita mwamsanga kumene limatulukira.

6Mphepo imawombera cha kummwera

ndi kukhotera cha kumpoto;

imawomba mozungulirazungulira,

kumangobwererabwerera komwe yachokera.

7Mitsinje yonse imakathira ku nyanja,

koma nyanjayo sidzaza;

kumene madziwo amachokera,

amabwereranso komweko.

8Zinthu zonse ndi zotopetsa,

kutopetsa kwake ndi kosaneneka.

Maso satopa ndi kuona

kapena khutu kukwaniritsidwa ndi kumva.

9Zomwe zinalipo kale zidzakhalaponso,

zomwe zinachitika kale zidzachitikanso.

Ndiye kuti chatsopano palibiretu pansi pano.

10Kodi chilipo chinthu chimene wina anganene kuti,

“Taona! Ichi ndiye chatsopano?”

Chinalipo kale, kalekale;

chinalipo ife kulibe.

11Anthu akale sakumbukiridwa,

ngakhale amene adzabwera mʼtsogolomu

sadzakumbukiridwa ndi iwo

amene adzabwere pambuyo pawo.

Nzeru Nʼzopandapake

12Ine, Mlalikine, ndinali mfumu ya Israeli mu Yerusalemu. 13Ndinayika mtima wanga pophunzira ndi kufunafuna mwa nzeru zinthu zonse zimene zimachitika pansi pa thambo. Ndi ntchito yolemetsa ndithu imene Mulungu anayipereka kwa anthu! 14Ine ndaona zinthu zonse zochitika pansi pano; zinthu zonsezo ndi zopandapake, nʼkungodzivuta chabe.

15Chinthu chokhota sichingathe kuwongoledwa;

chimene palibe sichingathe kuwerengedwa.

16Ine ndinaganiza mu mtima mwanga, “Taona, ine ndakula ndi kukhala wa nzeru zochuluka kupambana aliyense amene analamulirapo Yerusalemu ndisanabadwe; ndaphunzira nzeru zochuluka ndi luntha.” 17Ndipo ndinadzipereka kuti ndithe kumvetsa kuti nzeru nʼchiyani, misala nʼchiyani, uchitsiru nʼchiyani, koma ndinazindikira ichi, kuti kuteronso nʼkungodzivuta chabe.

18Pakuti nzeru zochuluka zimabweretsa chisoni chochulukanso:

chidziwitso chochuluka, zowawa zochulukanso.

Kiswahili Contemporary Version (Neno: Bibilia Takatifu)

Mhubiri 1:1-18

Kila Kitu Ni Ubatili Mtupu

11:1 Mhu 7:27; 12:10Maneno ya Mhubiri, mwana wa Daudi, mfalme huko Yerusalemu:

21:2 Za 39:5-6; 62:9; Rum 8:20-21; Mhu 4:4-6; 12:8“Ubatili mtupu! Ubatili mtupu!”

Mhubiri anasema.

“Ubatili mtupu!

Kila kitu ni ubatili.”

31:3 Mhu 3:9; 5:15-16; 2:11-22Mwanadamu anafaidi nini kutokana na kazi yake yote

anayotaabikia chini ya jua?

41:4 2Pet 3:10; Za 104:5; Ay 8:19Vizazi huja na vizazi hupita,

lakini dunia inadumu milele.

51:5 Za 19:5-6Jua huchomoza na jua huzama,

nalo huharakisha kurudi mawioni.

6Upepo huvuma kuelekea kusini

na kugeukia kaskazini,

hurudia mzunguko huo huo,

daima ukirudia njia yake.

71:7 Ay 36:28; 38:10Mito yote hutiririka baharini,

hata hivyo bahari kamwe haijai.

Mahali mito inapotoka,

huko hurudi tena.

81:8 Mhu 3:1; Mit 27:20Vitu vyote vinachosha,

zaidi kuliko mtu anavyoweza kusema.

Jicho kamwe halitosheki kutazama,

wala sikio halishibi kusikia.

91:9 Mwa 8:22; Mhu 3:15; 2:12Kile kilichokuwepo kitakuwepo tena,

kile kilichofanyika kitafanyika tena,

hakuna kilicho kipya chini ya jua.

10Kuna kitu chochote ambacho mtu anaweza kusema,

“Tazama! Kitu hiki ni kipya”?

Kilikuwepo tangu zamani za kale,

kilikuwepo kabla ya wakati wetu.

111:11 Mhu 8:10; 9:5, 15; 2:16; Za 88:12; Mwa 40:23Hakuna kumbukumbu ya watu wa zamani,

hata na wale ambao hawajaja bado

hawatakumbukwa

na wale watakaofuata baadaye.

Hekima Ni Ubatili

12Mimi, Mhubiri, nilikuwa mfalme wa Israeli katika Yerusalemu. 131:13 Mwa 3:17-19; Mhu 3:10; Ay 28:3Nilitumia muda wangu wote kujifunza na kuvumbua kwa hekima yote yanayofanyika chini ya mbingu. Jinsi gani Mungu ameweka mzigo mzito juu ya wanadamu! 141:14 Mhu 2:11; 4:4; 6:9Nimeshaona mambo yote yanayotendeka chini ya jua, hayo yote ni ubatili, hii ni kukimbiza upepo.

151:15 Mhu 7:13Kilichopindika hakiwezi kunyooshwa,

kile ambacho hakipo haiwezekani kukihesabu.

161:16 1Fal 3:12; 4:30; Mhu 2:9Niliwaza mwenyewe, “Tazama, nimekua na kuongezeka katika hekima kuliko yeyote aliyewahi kutawala Yerusalemu kabla yangu. Nimekuwa na uzoefu mkubwa wa hekima na maarifa.” 171:17 1The 5:21; Mhu 7:23, 25; 2:3, 12; 8:16Ndipo nilipojitahidi kufahamu kutofautisha hekima, wazimu na upumbavu, lakini nikatambua hata hili nalo ni kukimbiza upepo.

181:18 Mhu 2:23; 12:12; 7:16; Ay 28:28; Yer 45:3Kwa kuwa hekima nyingi huleta huzuni kubwa;

maarifa yanapoongezeka, masikitiko yanaongezeka.
