King James Version

Psalm 73

1Truly God is good to Israel, even to such as are of a clean heart.

But as for me, my feet were almost gone; my steps had well nigh slipped.

For I was envious at the foolish, when I saw the prosperity of the wicked.

For there are no bands in their death: but their strength is firm.

They are not in trouble as other men; neither are they plagued like other men.

Therefore pride compasseth them about as a chain; violence covereth them as a garment.

Their eyes stand out with fatness: they have more than heart could wish.

They are corrupt, and speak wickedly concerning oppression: they speak loftily.

They set their mouth against the heavens, and their tongue walketh through the earth.

10 Therefore his people return hither: and waters of a full cup are wrung out to them.

11 And they say, How doth God know? and is there knowledge in the most High?

12 Behold, these are the ungodly, who prosper in the world; they increase in riches.

13 Verily I have cleansed my heart in vain, and washed my hands in innocency.

14 For all the day long have I been plagued, and chastened every morning.

15 If I say, I will speak thus; behold, I should offend against the generation of thy children.

16 When I thought to know this, it was too painful for me;

17 Until I went into the sanctuary of God; then understood I their end.

18 Surely thou didst set them in slippery places: thou castedst them down into destruction.

19 How are they brought into desolation, as in a moment! they are utterly consumed with terrors.

20 As a dream when one awaketh; so, O Lord, when thou awakest, thou shalt despise their image.

21 Thus my heart was grieved, and I was pricked in my reins.

22 So foolish was I, and ignorant: I was as a beast before thee.

23 Nevertheless I am continually with thee: thou hast holden me by my right hand.

24 Thou shalt guide me with thy counsel, and afterward receive me to glory.

25 Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee.

26 My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever.

27 For, lo, they that are far from thee shall perish: thou hast destroyed all them that go a whoring from thee.

28 But it is good for me to draw near to God: I have put my trust in the Lord God, that I may declare all thy works.

EKITABO III

Zabbuli 73–89

Zabbuli ya Asafu.

1Ddala Katonda mulungi eri Isirayiri
    n’eri abo abalina omutima omulongoofu.

Naye nze amagulu gange gaali kumpi okutagala
    era n’ebigere byange okuseerera.
Kubanga nakwatirwa ab’amalala obuggya;
    bwe nalaba ababi nga bagaggawala nnyo.

Kubanga tebalina kibaluma;
    emibiri gyabwe miramu era minyirivu.
Tebeeraliikirira kabi konna ng’abalala.
    So tebalina kibabonyaabonya.
Amalala kyegavudde gabafuukira ng’omukuufu ogw’omu bulago,
    n’obukambwe ne bubafuukira ekyambalo.
Bagezze n’amaaso gaabwe ne gazimbagatana;
    balina bingi okusinga bye beetaaga.
Baduula era emboozi zaabwe zijjudde eby’okujooga.
    Batiisatiisa abalala n’okubeeragirako.
Emimwa gyabwe gyolekedde eggulu;
    n’ennimi zaabwe zoogera eby’okwewaanawaana buli wantu.
10 Abantu ba Katonda kyebava babakyukira
    ne banywa amazzi mangi.
11 Era ne beebuuza nti, “Katonda bino abimanyi atya?
    Ali Waggulu Ennyo abitegeera?”

12 Aboonoonyi bwe bafaanana bwe batyo;
    bulijjo babeera mu ddembe, nga beeyongera kugaggawala.

13 Ddala omutima gwange ngukuumidde bwereere obutayonoona,
    n’engalo zange ne nzinaaba obutaba na musango.
14 Naye mbonaabona obudde okuziba,
    era buli nkya mbonerezebwa.

15 Singa ŋŋamba nti njogere bwe nti,
    nandibadde mukuusa eri omulembe guno ogw’abaana bo.
16 Bwe nafumiitiriza ntegeere ensonga eyo;
    nakisanga nga kizibu nnyo,
17 okutuusa lwe nalaga mu watukuvu wa Katonda,
    ne ntegeera enkomerero y’ababi.

18 Ddala obatadde mu bifo ebiseerera;
    obasudde n’obafaafaaganya.
19 Nga bazikirizibwa mangu nga kutemya kikowe!
    Entiisa n’ebamalirawo ddala!
20 Bali ng’omuntu azuukuse n’ategeera nti yaloose buloosi;
    era naawe bw’otyo, Ayi Mukama,
    bw’oligolokoka olinyooma embeera yaabwe omutali nsa.

21 Omutima gwange bwe gwanyiikaala,
    n’omwoyo gwange ne gujjula obubalagaze,
22 n’aggwaamu okutegeera ne nfuuka ataliiko kye mmanyi,
    ne mba ng’ensolo obusolo mu maaso go.

23 Newaakubadde ebyo biri bwe bityo naye ndi naawe bulijjo;
    gw’onkwata ku mukono gwange ogwa ddyo.
24 Mu kuteesa kwo onkulembera,
    era olintuusa mu kitiibwa.
25 Ani gwe nnina mu ggulu, wabula ggwe?
    Era tewali na kimu ku nsi kye neetaaga bwe mba naawe.
26 Omubiri gwange n’omutima gwange biyinza okulemwa;
    naye Katonda ge maanyi g’omutima gwange,
    era ye wange ennaku zonna.

27 Kale laba, abo bonna abatakussaako mwoyo balizikirira;
    kubanga bonna abatakwesiga obamalirawo ddala.
28 Naye nze kye nsinga okwetaaga kwe kubeera okumpi ne Katonda wange.
    Ayi Mukama Katonda, nkufudde ekiddukiro kyange;
    ndyoke ntegeezenga abantu bonna ebikolwa byo eby’ekyewuunyo.
