Zabbuli 138

Zabbuli Ya Dawudi.

1Nnaakutenderezanga Ayi Mukama, n’omutima gwange gwonna;
    ne mu maaso ga bakatonda abalala nnaayimbanga okukutendereza.
Nvuunama nga njolekedde Yeekaalu yo Entukuvu,
    ne ntendereza erinnya lyo
    olw’okwagala kwo n’olw’obwesigwa bwo;
kubanga wagulumiza ekigambo kyo
    n’erinnya lyo okusinga ebintu byonna.
Olunaku lwe nakukoowoolerako wannyanukula;
    n’onnyongeramu amaanyi mu mwoyo gwange.

Bakabaka bonna ab’omu nsi banaakutenderezanga, Ayi Mukama,
    nga bawulidde ebigambo ebiva mu kamwa ko.
Banaatenderezanga ebikolwa byo Ayi Mukama;
    kubanga ekitiibwa kya Mukama kinene.

Newaakubadde nga Mukama asukkulumye,
    naye afaayo eri abo abeetoowaza; naye abeegulumiza ababeera wala.
Newaakubadde nga neetooloddwa ebizibu,
    naye ggwe okuuma obulamu bwange;
ogolola omukono gwo eri abalabe bange abakambwe,
    era omukono gwo ogwa ddyo ne gumponya.
Mukama alituukiriza ebyo by’anteekeddeteekedde;
    kubanga okwagala kwo, Ayi Mukama, kubeerera emirembe gyonna.
    Tolekulira ebyo bye watonda.

The Message

Psalm 138

A David Psalm

11-3 Thank you! Everything in me says “Thank you!”
    Angels listen as I sing my thanks.
I kneel in worship facing your holy temple
    and say it again: “Thank you!”
Thank you for your love,
    thank you for your faithfulness;
Most holy is your name,
    most holy is your Word.
The moment I called out, you stepped in;
    you made my life large with strength.

4-6 When they hear what you have to say, God,
    all earth’s kings will say “Thank you.”
They’ll sing of what you’ve done:
    “How great the glory of God!”
And here’s why: God, high above, sees far below;
    no matter the distance, he knows everything about us.

7-8 When I walk into the thick of trouble,
    keep me alive in the angry turmoil.
With one hand
    strike my foes,
With your other hand
    save me.
Finish what you started in me, God.
    Your love is eternal—don’t quit on me now.
