Endagaano Enkadde nʼEndagaano Empya

Zabbuli 132

Oluyimba nga balinnya amadaala.

1Ayi Mukama jjukira Dawudi
    n’okubonaabona kwe yagumiikiriza kwonna.

Nga bwe yalayirira Mukama,
    ne yeeyama eri Katonda Ayinzabyonna, Katonda wa Yakobo,
ng’agamba nti, “Siriyingira mu nnyumba yange,
    wadde okulinnya ku kitanda kyange.
Sirikkiriza tulo kunkwata
    newaakubadde okuzibiriza amaaso gange,
okutuusa lwe ndimala okufunira Mukama ekifo;
    ekifo eky’okubeeramu ekya Katonda Ayinzabyonna, Katonda wa Yakobo.”

Laba, twakiwulirako mu Efulasa,
    ne tukizuula mu nnimiro ya Jaali.
Kale tugende mu kifo kye mw’abeera,
    tumusinzirize awali entebe y’ebigere bye.
Golokoka, Ayi Mukama, ogende mu kifo kyo mw’owummulira;
    ggwe n’Essanduuko yo ey’Endagaano, eraga obuyinza bwo.
Bakabona bo bambazibwe obutuukirivu,
    n’abatukuvu bo bayimbe n’essanyu.

10 Ku lulwe Dawudi omuddu wo,
    tomugaana oyo gwe wafukako amafuta.

11 Mukama Katonda yalayirira Dawudi
    ekirayiro ekitaliggwaawo, era talikivaako.
Kubanga yamugamba nti, “Omu ku batabani bo
    gwe ndituuza ku ntebe yo ey’obwakabaka.
12 Batabani bo bwe banaakuumanga Endagaano yange
    n’ebiragiro byange bye nnaabayigirizanga,
ne batabani baabwe nabo banaatuulanga
    ku ntebe yo ey’obwakabaka emirembe gyonna.”

13 Kubanga Mukama yalonda Sayuuni,
    nga kye yasiima okutuulangamu, n’agamba nti:
14 “Kino kye kifo mwe nnaawummuliranga emirembe gyonna;
    omwo mwe nnaatuulanga nga ndi ku ntebe ey’obwakabaka kubanga nkisiimye.
15 Nnaakiwanga omukisa ne nkiwa n’ebirungi,
    era n’abaavu baamu nnaabakkusanga ebyokulya.
16 Bakabona baakyo, obulokozi bunaabanga kyambalo kyabwe;
    n’abatukuvu baakyo banaayimbanga ennyimba ez’essanyu n’essanyu.

17 “Eyo gye ndyaliza batabani ba Dawudi obuyinza;
    ne muteekerawo ettabaaza olw’oyo gwe nayiwako amafuta.
18 Abalabe be ndibajjuza ensonyi,
    naye ye ndimwambaza engule ey’ekitiibwa ekingi.”

The Message

Psalm 132

A Pilgrim Song

11-5 O God, remember David,
    remember all his troubles!
And remember how he promised God,
    made a vow to the Strong God of Jacob,
“I’m not going home,
    and I’m not going to bed,
I’m not going to sleep,
    not even take time to rest,
Until I find a home for God,
    a house for the Strong God of Jacob.”

6-7 Remember how we got the news in Ephrathah,
    learned all about it at Jaar Meadows?
We shouted, “Let’s go to the shrine dedication!
    Let’s worship at God’s own footstool!”

8-10 Up, God, enjoy your new place of quiet repose,
    you and your mighty covenant ark;
Get your priests all dressed up in justice;
    prompt your worshipers to sing this prayer:
“Honor your servant David;
    don’t disdain your anointed one.”

11-18 God gave David his word,
    he won’t back out on this promise:
“One of your sons
    I will set on your throne;
If your sons stay true to my Covenant
    and learn to live the way I teach them,
Their sons will continue the line—
    always a son to sit on your throne.
Yes—I, God, chose Zion,
    the place I wanted for my shrine;
This will always be my home;
    this is what I want, and I’m here for good.
I’ll shower blessings on the pilgrims who come here,
    and give supper to those who arrive hungry;
I’ll dress my priests in salvation clothes;
    the holy people will sing their hearts out!
Oh, I’ll make the place radiant for David!
    I’ll fill it with light for my anointed!
I’ll dress his enemies in dirty rags,
    but I’ll make his crown sparkle with splendor.”
