Amplified Bible

Psalm 15

Description of a Citizen of Zion.

A Psalm of David.

1O Lord, who may lodge [as a guest] in Your tent?
Who may dwell [continually] on Your holy hill?

He who walks with integrity and strength of character, and works righteousness,
And speaks and holds truth in his heart.

He does not slander with his tongue,
Nor does evil to his neighbor,
Nor takes up a reproach against his friend;

In his eyes an evil person is despised,
But he honors those who fear the Lord [and obediently worship Him with awe-inspired reverence and submissive wonder].
He keeps his word even to his own disadvantage and does not change it [for his own benefit];

He does not put out his money at interest [to a fellow Israelite],
And does not take a bribe against the innocent.
He who does these things will never be shaken.

Zabbuli 15

Zabbuli ya Dawudi.

1Ayi Mukama, ani anaabeeranga mu nnyumba yo?
    Ani anaatuulanga ku lusozi lwo olutukuvu?

Oyo ataliiko kya kunenyezebwa,
    akola eby’obutuukirivu,
era ayogera eby’amazima nga biviira ddala mu mutima gwe.
    Olulimi lwe talwogeza bya bulimba,
era mikwano gye tagiyisa bubi,
    so tasaasaanya ŋŋambo ku baliraanwa be.
Anyooma ababi,
    naye abatya Mukama abassaamu ekitiibwa.
Atuukiriza ky’asuubiza
    ne bwe kiba nga kimulumya.
Bw’awola tasaba magoba;
    so takkiriza kulya nguzi ku muntu yenna.

Oyo akola ebyo
    aliba munywevu emirembe gyonna.
