Zabbuli 12

Ya Mukulu wa Bayimbi. Zabbuli ya Dawudi.

1Tuyambe, Ayi Mukama, kubanga tewakyali n’omu amanyi Katonda;
    abantu abeesigwa bonna baweddewo.
Buli muntu alimba munne;
    akamwa kaabwe akawaana koogera bya bulimba.

Mukama, osirise akamwa k’abo bonna abeewaanawaana,
    na buli lulimi olwenyumiriza;
nga boogera nti, “Tujja kuwangula n’olulimi lwaffe, era tufune byonna bye twetaaga n’akamwa kaffe,
    kubanga ani alitukuba ku mukono.”

Mukama ayogera nti, “Olw’okujoogebwa kw’abanafu,
    n’olw’okusinda kw’abali mu bwetaavu,
nnaasituka kaakano
    ne nnwanirira abo abalumbibwa.”
Ebigambo bya Mukama bya bwesigwa era bya mazima.
    Bigeraageranyizibwa n’effeeza
    erongoosebbwa obulungi emirundi musanvu mu kyoto eky’ebbumba.

Ayi Mukama, tukwesiga ng’onootukuumanga,
    n’otuwonya abantu abali ng’abo emirembe gyonna.
Ababi beeyisaayisa
    nga bagulumiza ebitaliimu nsa.

Amplified Bible

Psalm 12

God, a Helper against the Treacherous.

To the Chief Musician; [a]set an octave below. A Psalm of David.

1Save and help and rescue, Lord, for godly people cease to be,
For the faithful vanish from among the sons of men.

They speak deceitful and worthless words to one another;
With flattering lips and a double heart they speak.

May the Lord cut off all flattering lips,
The tongue that speaks great things [in boasting];

Who have said, “With our tongue we will prevail;
Our lips are our own; who is lord and master over us?”

“Because of the devastation of the afflicted, because of the groaning of the needy,
Now I will arise,” says the Lord; “I will place him in the safety for which he longs.”


The words and promises of the Lord are pure words,
Like silver refined in an earthen furnace, purified seven times.

You, O Lord, will preserve and keep them;
You will protect him from this [evil] generation forever.

The wicked strut about [in pompous self-importance] on every side,
As vileness is exalted and baseness is prized among the sons of men.
