Zabbuli 14

Ya Mukulu wa Bayimbi. Zabbuli ya Dawudi.

1Omusirusiru ayogera mu mutima gwe nti,
    “Tewali Katonda.”
Aboogera bwe batyo boonoonefu,
    bakola ebitasaana tekuli n’omu ku bo akola kirungi.

Mukama atunuulira abantu bonna mu nsi
    ng’asinziira mu ggulu,
okulaba obanga mulimu mu bo ategeera,
    era abanoonya Katonda.
Naye bonna bakyamye
    boonoonese;
teri akola kirungi,
    era teri n’omu.

Abo bonna abakola ebibi tebaliyiga?
    Kubanga basaanyaawo abantu bange ng’abalya emmere;
    so tebakoowoola Mukama.
Balitya nnyo!
    Kubanga Katonda abeera wamu n’abatuukirivu.
Mulemesa entegeka z’omwavu,
    songa Mukama kye kiddukiro kye.

Singa obulokozi bwa Isirayiri butuuse mu kiseera kino nga buva mu Sayuuni!
    Mukama bw’alirokola abantu be,
    Yakobo alijaguza ne Isirayiri alisanyuka.

Psalm 14

Psalm 14

For the director of music. A psalm of David.

Foolish people say in their hearts,
    “There is no God.”
They do all kinds of horrible and evil things.
    No one does anything good.

The Lord looks down from heaven
    on all people.
He wants to see if there are any who understand.
    He wants to see if there are any who trust in God.
All of them have turned away.
    They have all become evil.
No one does anything good,
    no one at all.

Do all these people who do evil know nothing?
    They eat up my people as if they were eating bread.
    They never call out to the Lord.
But just look at them! They are filled with terror
    because God is among those who do right.
You who do evil keep poor people from succeeding.
    But the Lord is their place of safety.

How I pray that the God who saves Israel will come out of Zion!
    Then the Lord will bless his people with great success again.
    So let the people of Jacob be filled with joy! Let Israel be glad!
