9Pa tsiku limenelo ndidzalanga

onse amene safuna kuponda pa chiwundo,

10“Pa tsiku limenelo,” akutero Yehova,

“Kufuwula kwakukulu kudzamveka pa Chipata cha Nsomba,

kulira kwa chisoni kuchokera mʼChigawo Chatsopano,

ndi phokoso la kugumuka kochokera ku mapiri.

11Lirani mwachisoni, inu amene mumakhala kumene kuli msika;

12Pa nthawi imeneyo ndidzafufuzafufuza mu Yerusalemu ndi nyale

13Chuma chawo chidzafunkhidwa,

Adzamanga nyumba,

koma osakhalamo;

adzadzala minda ya mpesa

koma sadzamwako vinyo wake.”

Tsiku Lalikulu la Yehova

14Tsiku lalikulu la Yehova layandikira,

layandikira ndipo lifika msanga.

Tamverani! Kulira kwa pa tsiku la Yehova kudzakhala kowawa,

ngakhale munthu wolimba mtima adzalira kwambiri.

15Tsiku limenelo lidzakhala la ukali,

tsiku losautsa ndi lomvetsa chisoni,

tsiku la mavuto ndi la chiwonongeko,

tsiku la mdima ndi lachisoni,

tsiku la mitambo ndi la mdima wandiweyani.

16Tsiku loliza lipenga ndi la mfuwu wankhondo,

tsiku la kugwa kwa mizinda yotetezedwa

ndi nsanja za pa ngodya.

17Ndidzabweretsa msautso pa anthu

ndipo adzayenda ngati anthu osaona,

chifukwa achimwira Yehova,

magazi awo adzamwazika ngati fumbi

ndi mnofu wawo ngati ndowe.

18Ngakhale siliva wawo kapena golide wawo

sadzatha kuwapulumutsa

pa tsiku la ukali wa Yehova.

Dziko lonse lapansi lidzanyeka

mʼmoto wa nsanje yake

chifukwa adzakantha modzidzimutsa

onse okhala pa dziko lapansi.
