Endagaano Enkadde nʼEndagaano Empya

Zabbuli 122

Oluyimba nga balinnya amadaala. Lwa Dawudi.

1Nasanyuka bwe baŋŋamba nti,
    “Tugende mu nnyumba ya Mukama!”
Ebigere byaffe biyimiridde
    mu miryango gyo, Ayi Yerusaalemi.

Yerusaalemi yazimbibwa okuba
    ekibuga ekinywevu ekiyimiridde awamu.
Eyo ebika byonna gye biraga,
    ebika bya Mukama,
okutendereza erinnya lya Mukama
    ng’ebiragiro ebyaweebwa Isirayiri bwe biri.
Eyo entebe ez’okusalirako emisango gye zaateekebwa;
    z’entebe ez’obwakabaka ez’ennyumba ya Dawudi.

Musabirenga Yerusaalemi emirembe:
    “Abo abakwagala bafune ebirungi.
Emirembe gibeerenga munda w’ebisenge byo;
    n’amayumba go amanene gabeerenga n’omukisa era nga manywevu.”
Olwa baganda bange ne mikwano gyange
    nnaayogeranga nti, “Emirembe gibeerenga mu ggwe.”
Olw’obulungi bw’ennyumba ya Mukama Katonda waffe, nnaanoonyanga okukulaakulana kwa Yerusaalemi.

Psalm 122

Psalm 122

A song for those who go up to Jerusalem to worship the Lord. A psalm of David.

I was very glad when they said to me,
    “Let us go up to the house of the Lord.”
Jerusalem, our feet are standing
    inside your gates.

Jerusalem is built like a city
    where everything is close together.
The tribes of the Lord go there to praise his name.
    They do it in keeping with the law he gave to Israel.
The thrones of the family line of David are there.
    That’s where the people are judged.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem. Say,
    “May those who love you be secure.
May there be peace inside your walls.
    May your people be kept safe.”
I’m concerned for my family and friends.
    So I say to Jerusalem, “May you enjoy peace.”
I’m concerned about the house of the Lord our God.
    So I pray that things will go well with Jerusalem.
