Endagaano Enkadde nʼEndagaano Empya

Zabbuli 149

1Mutendereze Mukama!

Muyimbire Mukama oluyimba oluggya,
    mumutenderereze wamu n’ekibiina ky’abatukuvu.

Isirayiri asanyukirenga eyamutonda;
    n’abantu ba Sayuuni bajagulize Kabaka waabwe!
Batenderezenga erinnya lye nga bwe bazina,
    bamutenderezenga nga bwe bakuba ennanga n’ebitaasa.
Kubanga Mukama asanyukira abantu be,
    n’abawombeefu abawa engule ey’obulokozi.
Abatuukirivu bajagulizenga mu kitiibwa kino;
    bayimbire ku bitanda byabwe olw’essanyu.

Batenderezenga Katonda waabwe,
    bakwate ekitala eky’obwogi obubiri,
bawoolere eggwanga,
    babonereze n’amawanga,
bateeke bakabaka baago mu njegere,
    n’abakungu baago babasibe amagulu n’ebyuma,
babasalire omusango ogwabawandiikirwa.
    Kino kye kitiibwa ky’abatukuvu be bonna.

Mutendereze Mukama.

The Message

Psalm 149

11-4 Hallelujah!
Sing to God a brand-new song,
    praise him in the company of all who love him.
Let all Israel celebrate their Sovereign Creator,
    Zion’s children exult in their King.
Let them praise his name in dance;
    strike up the band and make great music!
And why? Because God delights in his people,
    festoons plain folk with salvation garlands!

5-9 Let true lovers break out in praise,
    sing out from wherever they’re sitting,
Shout the high praises of God,
    brandish their swords in the wild sword-dance—
A portent of vengeance on the God-defying nations,
    a signal that punishment’s coming,
Their kings chained and hauled off to jail,
    their leaders behind bars for good,
The judgment on them carried out to the letter
    —and all who love God in the seat of honor!
Hallelujah!
