1 Hayi, uyolo lomntu ongahambiyo ngecebo labangendawo, Ongemiyo endleleni yaboni, Ongahlaliyo embuthweni yabagxeki!
2 Yena unonelela umyalelo kaYehova; Ucamanga ngomyalelo wakhe imini nobusuku:

4 Abanjalo abangendawo; Bona banjengomququ ophetshethwa ngumoya.

40 Wandinika ikhosi leentshaba zam, Abandithiyayo ndababhangisa.
41 Bazibika, akwabakho msindisi; Bazibika kuYehova, akabaphendula.
42 Ndabacola, banjengothuli phambi komoya, Ndabaphalaza njengodaka lwezitrato.
43 Wandisiza ekubambaneni kwabantu, Wandimisa ndayintloko yeentlanga; Abantu ebe ndingabazi bandikhonza.
44 Besave ngeendlebe, bandithobela, Oonyana bolunye uhlanga bahanahanisa kum;
45 Oonyana bolunye uhlanga bantshwenya, Baphuma bengcangcazela ekuvingcelweni kwabo.
46 UYehova uhleli; lelokubongwa iliwa lam, Aphakanyiswe uThixo ondisindisayo.
47 UloThixo wandinika impindezelo, Uzikhandaniselayo izizwe phantsi kwam;
48 Undisiza ezintshabeni zam; Ewe, wena undiphakamisayo kwabasukela phezulu kum, Undihlangule kumfo ogonyamelayo.
49 Ngenxa yoko ndiya kubulela kuwe, Yehova, phakathi kweentlanga, Ndivume kwigama lakho.
50 Ulokhulisa iintsindiso zokumkani wakhe: Wenzayo inceba kumthanjiswa wakhe, KuDavide, nakwimbewu yakhe kude kuse ephakadeni.

16 Uyasivula isandla sakho, Uzihluthise iinto zonke eziphilileyo ngeento ezikholekileyo.
17 Ulilungisa uYehova ngeendlela zakhe zonke, Unenceba ngezenzo zakhe zonke.
18 Usondele uYehova kubo bonke abamnqulayo, Kubo bonke abamnqulayo ngenyaniso.
19 Uyayenza into ekholekileyo kwabamoyikayo, Akuve ukuzibika kwabo, abasindise.
20 UYehova ungumgcini wabo bonke abamthandayo, Abatshabalalise bonke abangendawo.
21 Umlomo wam mawuthethe indumiso kaYehova, Inyama yonke ilibonge igama lakhe elingcwele ngonaphakade kanaphakade.
