Zabbuli 16

Ya Dawudi.

1Onkuume, Ayi Katonda,
    kubanga ggwe buddukiro bwange.

Nagamba Mukama nti, “Ggwe Mukama wange,
    ebirungi byonna bye nnina biva gy’oli.”
Abatukuvu abali mu nsi be njagala
    era mu bo mwe nsanyukira.
Ennaku y’abo abagoberera bakatonda abalala
    yeeyongera.
Siriwaayo ssaddaaka zaabwe ez’omusaayi,[a]
    wadde okusinza bakatonda baabwe.

Mukama, ggwe mugabo gwange,
    era ggw’oliisa obulamu bwange; era ggw’olabirira ebyange.
Ensalo zange ziri mu bifo ebisanyusa,
    ddala ddala omugabo omulungi.

Nnaatenderezanga Mukama kubanga annuŋŋamya
    ne mu kiro ayigiriza omutima gwange.
Nkulembeza Mukama buli kiseera,
    era ali ku mukono gwange ogwa ddyo,
    siinyeenyezebwenga.

Noolwekyo omutima gwange gusanyuka, n’akamwa kange ne kajaguza;
    era n’omubiri gwange gunaabeeranga mu mirembe.
10 Kubanga omwoyo gwange toliguleka magombe,
    wadde okukkiriza Omutukuvu wo okuvunda.
11 Olindaga ekkubo ery’obulamu;
    w’oli we wanaabanga essanyu erijjuvu,
    era mu mukono gwo ogwa ddyo nga mwe muli ebisanyusa emirembe gyonna.

The Message

Psalm 16

A David Song

11-2 Keep me safe, O God,
    I’ve run for dear life to you.
I say to God, “Be my Lord!”
    Without you, nothing makes sense.

And these God-chosen lives all around—
    what splendid friends they make!

Don’t just go shopping for a god.
    Gods are not for sale.
I swear I’ll never treat god-names
    like brand-names.

5-6 My choice is you, God, first and only.
    And now I find I’m your choice!
You set me up with a house and yard.
    And then you made me your heir!

7-8 The wise counsel God gives when I’m awake
    is confirmed by my sleeping heart.
Day and night I’ll stick with God;
    I’ve got a good thing going and I’m not letting go.

9-10 I’m happy from the inside out,
    and from the outside in, I’m firmly formed.
You canceled my ticket to hell—
    that’s not my destination!

11 Now you’ve got my feet on the life path,
    all radiant from the shining of your face.
Ever since you took my hand,
    I’m on the right way.
