Zabbuli 139

Ya Mukulu wa Bayimbi. Zabbuli ya Dawudi.

1Ayi Mukama, okebedde omutima gwange,
    n’otegeera byonna ebiri munda yange.
Bwe ntuula omanya, ne bwe ngolokoka omanya;
    era otegeera byonna bye ndowooza, ne bwe mbeera ewala ennyo.
Otegeera okutambula kwange kwonna n’okuwummula kwange.
    Omanyi amakubo gange gonna.
Ekigambo kye nnaayogera, Ayi Mukama,
    okimanya nga sinnaba na kukyogera.
Ondi mu maaso n’emabega,
    era ontaddeko omukono gwo.
Okumanya okw’engeri eyo kunsukkiridde,
    era nkwewuunya nnyo, kunnema okutegeera.

Nnaagenda wa Omwoyo wo gy’atali?
    Oba nnaagenda wa ggwe gy’otoli?
Bwe nnaalinya mu ggulu, nga gy’oli;
    bwe nnakka emagombe, nayo nga gy’oli.
Bwe nneebagala empewo ez’oku makya ne zintwala
    ne mbeera mu bitundu by’ennyanja ebisinga okuba ewala;
10 era n’eyo omukono gwo gunannuŋŋamya,
    omukono gwo ogwa ddyo gunannywezanga.
11 Bwe nnaagamba nti, “Ekizikiza kimbuutikire,
    n’obudde obw’emisana bwe ndimu bufuuke ekiro.”
12 Naye era ekizikiza gy’oli tekiba kizikiza,
    ekiro kyakaayakana ng’emisana;
    kubanga gy’oli ekizikiza n’omusana bifaanana.

13 Ggwe watonda byonna ebiri munda mu nze;
    ggwe wammumbira mu lubuto lwa mmange.
14 Nkutendereza, kubanga wankola mu ngeri ey’entiisa era ey’ekitalo;
    emirimu gyo gya kyewuunyo;
    era ekyo nkimanyidde ddala bulungi.
15 Wammanya nga ntondebwa,
    bwe nakolerwa mu kyama;
bwe natondebwa mu buziba bw’ensi n’amagezi go amangi.
16     Wandaba nga si natondebwa.
Ennaku zange zonna ze wanteekerateekera
    zawandiikibwa mu kitabo kyo.
17 By’ondowooleza nga bya muwendo munene, Ayi Katonda!
    Omuwendo gwabyo munene!
18 Singa ngezaako okubibala
    bisinga omusenyu obungi.
Ne bwe ngolokoka mu makya
    oba okyandowoozaako.

19 Abakola ebibi batte, Ayi Katonda;
    abasajja abassi b’abantu banveeko.
20 Abantu abo bakwogerako bibi;
    bakwegulumiririzaako mu butategeera bwabwe.
21 Abakukyawa, Ayi Mukama, nange mbakyawa;
    abo abakwegulumiririzaako bansunguwaza.
22 Mbakyayira ddala nnyo,
    era mbayita balabe bange.
23 Nkebera, Ayi Katonda, otegeere omutima gwange.
    Ngezesa omanye ebirowoozo byange.
24 Olabe obanga mu nze mulimu engeri yonna enkyamu;
    era onkulembere mu kkubo erintuusa mu bulamu obutaggwaawo.

Psalm 139

Psalm 139

For the director of music. A psalm of David.

Lord, you have seen what is in my heart.
    You know all about me.
You know when I sit down and when I get up.
    You know what I’m thinking even though you are far away.
You know when I go out to work and when I come back home.
    You know exactly how I live.
Lord, even before I speak a word,
    you know all about it.

You are all around me, behind me and in front of me.
    You hold me safe in your hand.
I’m amazed at how well you know me.
    It’s more than I can understand.

How can I get away from your Spirit?
    Where can I go to escape from you?
If I go up to the heavens, you are there.
    If I lie down in the deepest parts of the earth, you are also there.
Suppose I were to rise with the sun in the east.
    Suppose I travel to the west where it sinks into the ocean.
10 Your hand would always be there to guide me.
    Your right hand would still be holding me close.

11 Suppose I were to say, “I’m sure the darkness will hide me.
    The light around me will become as dark as night.”
12 Even that darkness would not be dark to you.
    The night would shine like the day,
    because darkness is like light to you.

13 You created the deepest parts of my being.
    You put me together inside my mother’s body.
14 How you made me is amazing and wonderful.
    I praise you for that.
What you have done is wonderful.
    I know that very well.
15 None of my bones was hidden from you
    when you made me inside my mother’s body.
    That place was as dark as the deepest parts of the earth.
When you were putting me together there,
16     your eyes saw my body even before it was formed.
You planned how many days I would live.
    You wrote down the number of them in your book
    before I had lived through even one of them.

17 God, your thoughts about me are priceless.
    No one can possibly add them all up.
18 If I could count them,
    they would be more than the grains of sand.
If I were to fall asleep counting and then wake up,
    you would still be there with me.

19 God, I wish you would kill the people who are evil!
    I wish those murderers would get away from me!
20 They are your enemies. They misuse your name.
    They misuse it for their own evil purposes.
21 Lord, I really hate those who hate you!
    I really hate those who rise up against you!
22 I have nothing but hatred for them.
    I consider them to be my enemies.

23 God, see what is in my heart.
    Know what is there.
Test me.
    Know what I’m thinking.
24 See if there’s anything in my life you don’t like.
    Help me live in the way that is always right.
