1Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.1.1 ungodly: or, wicked
2But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
3And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.1.3 wither: Heb. fade
4The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.
5Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
6For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.
amene satsatira uphungu wa anthu ochimwa,
kapena kuyima mʼnjira ya anthu oyipa,
kapena kukhala mʼmagulu a anthu onyoza.
2Koma chikondwerero chake chili mʼmalamulo a Yehova
ndipo mʼmalamulo akewo amalingaliramo usana ndi usiku.
3Iye ali ngati mtengo wodzalidwa mʼmbali mwa mitsinje ya madzi,
umene umabereka zipatso zake pa nyengo yake
ndipo masamba ake safota.
Chilichonse chimene amachita amapindula nacho.
4Sizitero ndi anthu oyipa!
Iwo ali ngati mungu
umene umawuluzidwa ndi mphepo.
5Kotero anthu oyipa sadzatha kuyima pa chiweruzo,
kapena anthu ochimwa mu msonkhano wa anthu olungama.
6Pakuti Yehova amayangʼanira mayendedwe a anthu olungama,
koma mayendedwe a anthu oyipa adzawonongeka.
