Psalms 143

He himene na Rawiri. E Ihowa, whakarongo ki taku inoi, kia titaha mai tou taringa ki aku inoi: whakahokia mai he kupu ki ahau i runga i tou pono, i runga i tou tika. A kaua e anga e whakawa ki tau pononga: ki tau titiro hoki kahore tetahi mea ora e tika. Kua tukinotia hoki toku wairua e te hoariri; patua iho e ia toku ora ki raro ki te whenua: meinga ana ahau e ia kia noho i nga wahi pouri, kia rite ki nga tupapaku onamata. Na reira i ngaro ai toku wairua i roto i ahau: moti rawa toku ngakau i roto i ahau. E mahara ana ahau ki nga ra onamata; e whakaaro ana ki au mahi katoa: e whakaaroaro ana ahau ki nga meatanga a ou ringa. Totoro tonu atu oku ringa ki a koe: e hiainu ana toku wairua ki a koe, ano he whenua mauiui. (Hera.

Hohoro te whakahoki kupu mai ki ahau, e Ihowa; ka hemo toku wairua: kei huna tou mata ki ahau; kei rite ahau ki te hunga e heke ana ki te poka. Meinga kia rongo ahau ki tou aroha i te ata; e whakawhirinaki ana hoki ahau ki a koe: meinga kia matau ahau ki te ara e haere ai ahau; kua ara nei hoki toku wairua ki a koe. Whakaorangia ahau, e Ihowa, i oku hoariri: ka kuhu nei ahau ki roto ki a koe. 10 Whakaakona ahau ki te mea i tau e pai ai; ko koe hoki toku Atua: he pai tou wairua; arahina ahau ki te whenua o te tika. 11 Whakahauorangia ahau, e Ihowa, he whakaaro ki tou ingoa; whakaarohia tou tika, ka whakaputa ake i toku wairua i roto i te pouri. 12 Aroha mai hoki, a huna oku hoariri: whakangaromia katoatia ano nga kaitukino o toku wairua: he pononga hoki ahau nau.
