Endagaano Enkadde nʼEndagaano Empya

Zabbuli 144

Zabbuli ya Dawudi.

1Atenderezebwe Mukama, olwazi lwange,
    atendeka emikono gyange okulwana,
    era ateekerateekera engalo zange olutalo.
Mukama anjagala ye Katonda wange era kye kiddukiro kyange,
    ge maanyi gange amangi era ye mulokozi wange.
Ye ngabo yange mwe neekweka.
    Awangula amawanga n’agassa wansi w’ebigere byange.

Ayi Mukama, omuntu kye ki ggwe okumufaako,
    oba omwana w’omuntu, ggwe okumulowoozaako?
Omuntu ali nga mukka.
    Ennaku ze ziri ng’ekisiikirize ekiyita obuyisi.

Yawula mu ggulu lyo, Ayi Mukama, okke!
    Kwata ku nsozi zinyooke omukka!
Myansa abalabe basaasaane,
    era lasa obusaale bwo obazikirize.
Ogolole omukono gwo ng’osinziira waggulu ennyo,
    omponye,
onzigye mu mazzi amangi,
    era onzigye mu mikono gya bannamawanga;
ab’emimwa egyogera eby’obulimba,
    abalayira nti kya mazima, so nga bulimba bwereere.

Ayi Mukama, nnaakuyimbiranga oluyimba oluggya;
    nnaakukubiranga ennanga ey’enkoba ekkumi,
10 ggwe awa bakabaka obuwanguzi;
    amponya, nze omuddu wo Dawudi, ekitala ekyogi.

11 Ndokola, omponye onzigye
    mu mukono gwa bannamawanga bano
ab’emimwa egyogera eby’obulimba,
    era omukono gwabwe ogwa ddyo gwa bulimba.

12 Batabani baffe mu buvubuka bwabwe, Ayi Mukama,
    babeere ng’ebisimbe ebikulidde ddala obulungi,
ne bawala baffe babe ng’empagi ennungi ez’oku nsonda
    okuzimbirwa ennyumba ya kabaka mu lubiri.
13 Amawanika gaffe gajjule ebibala
    ebya buli ngeri.
Endiga zaffe zizaale
    enkumi n’obukumi zijjule amalundiro gaffe.
14     Ente zaffe ziwalule ebizito.
Ebisenge by’ekibuga bireme kumenyebwa.
    Waleme kubaawo kukaaba
    n’okwaziirana kwonna mu nguudo ez’omu bibuga byaffe.
15 Abantu abaweereddwa emikisa egyo beesiimye!
    Balina omukisa abantu abo abalina Katonda waabwe nga ye Mukama.

King James Version

Psalm 144

1Blessed be the Lord my strength which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight:

My goodness, and my fortress; my high tower, and my deliverer; my shield, and he in whom I trust; who subdueth my people under me.

Lord, what is man, that thou takest knowledge of him! or the son of man, that thou makest account of him!

Man is like to vanity: his days are as a shadow that passeth away.

Bow thy heavens, O Lord, and come down: touch the mountains, and they shall smoke.

Cast forth lightning, and scatter them: shoot out thine arrows, and destroy them.

Send thine hand from above; rid me, and deliver me out of great waters, from the hand of strange children;

Whose mouth speaketh vanity, and their right hand is a right hand of falsehood.

I will sing a new song unto thee, O God: upon a psaltery and an instrument of ten strings will I sing praises unto thee.

10 It is he that giveth salvation unto kings: who delivereth David his servant from the hurtful sword.

11 Rid me, and deliver me from the hand of strange children, whose mouth speaketh vanity, and their right hand is a right hand of falsehood:

12 That our sons may be as plants grown up in their youth; that our daughters may be as corner stones, polished after the similitude of a palace:

13 That our garners may be full, affording all manner of store: that our sheep may bring forth thousands and ten thousands in our streets:

14 That our oxen may be strong to labour; that there be no breaking in, nor going out; that there be no complaining in our streets.

15 Happy is that people, that is in such a case: yea, happy is that people, whose God is the Lord.
