Amplified Bible

Psalm 101

The Psalmist’s Profession of Uprightness.

A Psalm of David.

1I will sing of [steadfast] lovingkindness and justice;
To You, O Lord, I will sing praises.

I will behave wisely and follow the way of integrity.
When will You come to me?
I will walk in my house in integrity and with a blameless heart.

I will set no worthless or wicked thing before my eyes.
I hate the practice of those who fall away [from the right path];
It will not grasp hold of me.

A perverse heart shall depart from me;
I will not tolerate evil.

Whoever secretly slanders his neighbor, him I will silence;
The one who has a haughty look and a proud (arrogant) heart I will not tolerate.


My eyes will be on the faithful (honorable) of the land, that they may dwell with me;
He who walks blamelessly is the one who will minister to and serve me.

He who practices deceit will not dwell in my house;
He who tells lies and half-truths will not continue [to remain] in my presence.

Morning after morning I will destroy all the wicked in the land,
That I may cut off from the city of the Lord all those who do evil.

Zabbuli 101

Zabbuli ya Dawudi.

1Nnaayimbanga ku kwagala kwo n’obutuukirivu bwo;
    nnaayimbiranga ggwe, Ayi Mukama.
Nneegenderezanga, mu bulamu bwange ne nkola eby’obutuukirivu,
    naye olijja ddi gye ndi?

Nnaabeeranga mu nnyumba yange
    nga siriiko kya kunenyezebwa.
Sijjanga kwereetereza kintu
    kyonna ekibi.

Nkyayira ddala ebikolwa by’abo abava mu kkubo lyo;
    sijjanga kubyeteekako.
Sijjanga kuba mukuusa;
    ekibi nnaakyewaliranga ddala.

Oyo alyolyoma muliraanwa we mu kyama,
    nnaamuzikiririzanga ddala; amaaso ag’amalala n’omutima ogw’amalala
    sijja kubigumiikirizanga.

Abeesigwa abali mu nsi yaffe nnaabasanyukiranga,
    balyoke babeerenga nange;
akola eby’obutuukirivu
    y’anamperezanga.

Atayogera mazima
    taabeerenga mu nnyumba yange.
Omuntu alimba
    sirimuganya kwongera kubeera nange.

Buli nkya nnaazikirizanga
    abakola ebibi bonna mu nsi,
bwe ntyo abakozi b’ebibi ne mbamalirawo ddala
    mu kibuga kya Mukama.
