Endagaano Enkadde nʼEndagaano Empya

Yoweeri 1

1Buno bwe bubaka bwa Mukama obwajjira Yoweeri mutabani wa Pesweri.

Muwulirize mmwe abakadde ba Isirayiri,
    buli ali mu nsi naye awulirize.
Kino kyali kibaddewo mu biseera byammwe,
    oba mu biseera bya bakitammwe?
Mukibuulire abaana bammwe,
    nabo balikibuulira abaana baabwe,
    nabo balikibuulira ab’emirembe egiriddawo.
Ebibinja by’enzige ebisooka bye zitalidde,
    enzige eziddirira zibirumbye,
ate ezo bye zireseewo,
    enzige ento bye ziridde,
ate zino bye zireseewo,
    enzige endala ne zibizikiririza ddala byonna!

Muzuukuke, mmwe abatamiivu, mwekaabire amaziga;
    mukube ebiwoobe mmwe mwenna abanywi b’omwenge,
mukube ebiwoobe kubanga akamwa kammwe
    katuuse okwerabira omwenge omusu.
Eggwanga lirumbye ensi yange,
    ery’amaanyi ennyo era ery’abantu abatabalika.
Amannyo gaalyo gali ng’ag’empologoma,
    n’amasongezo gaalyo ng’ag’empologoma enkazi.
Eggwanga eryo lizikirizza emizabbibu gyange,
    ne limalawo emitiini gyange.
Lisusumbudde ebikuta byagyo,
    byonna biri ku ttaka,
    amatabi gaagyo gasigadde gatukuuliridde.

Mukungubage nga nnamwandu omuto afiiriddwa bba,
    ng’ayambadde ebibukutu olw’ennaku.
Ebiweebwayo eby’emmere ey’empeke n’ebiweebwayo eby’okunywa
    tewakyali kirabikako mu nnyumba ya Mukama.
Bakabona abaweerereza mu maaso ga Katonda
    bakungubaga.
10 Ennimiro ziweddemu ebirime;
    ettaka likaze,
Emmere ey’empeke eweddewo,
    omwenge omusu n’amafuta g’emizeeyituuni ne bibulira ddala.

11 Mmwe abalimi mukwatibwe entiisa,
    mmwe abalima emizabbibu mukaabe.
Mukaabire eŋŋaano ne sayiri,
    kubanga ebyandikunguddwa byonna biweddewo.
12 Omuzabbibu gukaze
    n’omutiini guyongobedde.
Omukomamawanga, n’olukindu ne apo
    n’emiti gyonna egy’omu nnimiro giwotose.
Abantu tebakyalina ssanyu.

Abantu bayitibwa Okwenenya

13 Mmwe bakabona, mwesibe mwambale ebibukutu mukungubage.
    Mmwe abaweereza ba Katonda wange ab’oku kyoto,
mweyale wansi awali ekyoto,
    musule awo ekiro kyonna nga mukuba ebiwoobe,
kubanga mu nnyumba ya Katonda wammwe temukyali kiweebwayo kyonna,
    eky’emmere ey’empeke oba eky’envinnyo.
14 Mulangirire okusiiba okutukuvu
    n’okukuŋŋaana mu maaso ga Katonda.
Muyite abakulu abakulembeze
    n’abantu bonna ababeera mu nsi,
bajje mu nnyumba ya Mukama Katonda waabwe
    bamukaabirire.

15 Zitusanze olw’olunaku luli!
    Kubanga olunaku lwa Mukama olw’entiisa lusembedde.
Lulijja, ng’okuzikiriza
    okuva eri Ayinzabyonna.

16 Emmere tetuweddeeko
    nga tulaba?
Essanyu n’okujaguza
    mu nnyumba ya Katonda waffe tebikomye?
17 Ensigo ziwotokedde
    mu ttaka,
amawanika makalu
    n’ebyagi by’emmere bikaze,
    kubanga emmere ey’empeke eweddewo.
18 Ensolo nga zisinda!
    Amagana gabuliddwa amagezi;
kubanga tewali muddo,
    n’endiga nazo zidooba.

19 Ayi Mukama, Ggwe gwe nkaabirira,
    kubanga omuddo gwonna gumaliddwawo empiira,
n’emiti gyonna egy’omu nnimiro
    nagyo giyidde.
20 Ensolo ez’omu nsiko nazo zikukaabira okuziyamba,
    emigga gikalidde,
    ne gye ziriira, omuddo gwonna guyidde.

King James Version

Joel 1

1The word of the Lord that came to Joel the son of Pethuel.

Hear this, ye old men, and give ear, all ye inhabitants of the land. Hath this been in your days, or even in the days of your fathers?

Tell ye your children of it, and let your children tell their children, and their children another generation.

That which the palmerworm hath left hath the locust eaten; and that which the locust hath left hath the cankerworm eaten; and that which the cankerworm hath left hath the caterpiller eaten.

Awake, ye drunkards, and weep; and howl, all ye drinkers of wine, because of the new wine; for it is cut off from your mouth.

For a nation is come up upon my land, strong, and without number, whose teeth are the teeth of a lion, and he hath the cheek teeth of a great lion.

He hath laid my vine waste, and barked my fig tree: he hath made it clean bare, and cast it away; the branches thereof are made white.

Lament like a virgin girded with sackcloth for the husband of her youth.

The meat offering and the drink offering is cut off from the house of the Lord; the priests, the Lord's ministers, mourn.

10 The field is wasted, the land mourneth; for the corn is wasted: the new wine is dried up, the oil languisheth.

11 Be ye ashamed, O ye husbandmen; howl, O ye vinedressers, for the wheat and for the barley; because the harvest of the field is perished.

12 The vine is dried up, and the fig tree languisheth; the pomegranate tree, the palm tree also, and the apple tree, even all the trees of the field, are withered: because joy is withered away from the sons of men.

13 Gird yourselves, and lament, ye priests: howl, ye ministers of the altar: come, lie all night in sackcloth, ye ministers of my God: for the meat offering and the drink offering is withholden from the house of your God.

14 Sanctify ye a fast, call a solemn assembly, gather the elders and all the inhabitants of the land into the house of the Lord your God, and cry unto the Lord,

15 Alas for the day! for the day of the Lord is at hand, and as a destruction from the Almighty shall it come.

16 Is not the meat cut off before our eyes, yea, joy and gladness from the house of our God?

17 The seed is rotten under their clods, the garners are laid desolate, the barns are broken down; for the corn is withered.

18 How do the beasts groan! the herds of cattle are perplexed, because they have no pasture; yea, the flocks of sheep are made desolate.

19 O Lord, to thee will I cry: for the fire hath devoured the pastures of the wilderness, and the flame hath burned all the trees of the field.

20 The beasts of the field cry also unto thee: for the rivers of waters are dried up, and the fire hath devoured the pastures of the wilderness.
