Endagaano Enkadde nʼEndagaano Empya

Zabbuli 21

Ya Mukulu wa Bayimbi. Zabbuli ya Dawudi.

1Ayi Mukama, kabaka ajaguliza mu maanyi go.
    Obuwanguzi bw’omuwadde nga bumuleetedde essanyu lingi!

Omuwadde omutima gwe bye gwetaaga,
    era buli ky’asabye n’akamwa ke tokimummye.
Ddala ddala wamwaniriza n’emikisa gyo egijjudde ebirungi,
    n’omutikkira engule eya zaabu omuka ennyo ku mutwe gwe.
Yakusaba obulamu, era n’obumuwa,
    ennaku ennyingi ez’emirembe n’emirembe.
Obuwanguzi bwe wamuwa bumuleetedde ekitiibwa kinene.
    Omuwadde ekitiibwa n’oyatiikirira.
Ddala omuwadde emikisa gyo egy’olubeerera,
    n’omujjuza essanyu ng’oli naye buli kiseera.
Kubanga kabaka yeesiga Mukama,
    era olw’okwagala okutaggwaawo okw’oyo Ali Waggulu Ennyo,
    kabaka tagenda kunyeenyezebwa.

Omukono gwo guliwamba abalabe bo bonna;
    omukono gwo ogwa ddyo gulikwata abo abakukyawa.
Bw’olirabika, Ayi Mukama,
    olibasiriiza n’omuliro ng’ogw’omu kyoto ekyengeredde.
Mukama, ng’ajjudde obusungu, alibamira bonna,
    era alibamalirawo ddala.
10 Olizikiriza ezzadde lyabwe ku nsi,
    n’abaana baabwe bonna n’obamalawo mu baana b’abantu.
11 Newaakubadde nga bakusalira enkwe,
    ne bateekateeka ebikolwa ebibi, kyokka tewali kye basobola kutuukiriza.
12 Balikyuka ne bakudduka bwe baliraba
    ng’obaleezeemu omutego gwo ogw’obusaale.

13 Ogulumizibwenga, Ayi Mukama, mu maanyi go.
    Tunaayimbanga nga tutendereza obuyinza bwo.

The Message

Psalm 21

A David Psalm

11-7 Your strength, God, is the king’s strength.
    Helped, he’s hollering Hosannas.
You gave him exactly what he wanted;
    you didn’t hold back.
You filled his arms with gifts;
    you gave him a right royal welcome.
He wanted a good life; you gave it to him,
    and then made it a long life as a bonus.
You lifted him high and bright as a cumulus cloud,
    then dressed him in rainbow colors.
You pile blessings on him;
    you make him glad when you smile.
Is it any wonder the king loves God?
    that he’s sticking with the Best?

8-12 With a fistful of enemies in one hand
    and a fistful of haters in the other,
You radiate with such brilliance
    that they cringe as before a furnace.
Now the furnace swallows them whole,
    the fire eats them alive!
You purge the earth of their progeny,
    you wipe the slate clean.
All their evil schemes, the plots they cook up,
    have fizzled—every one.
You sent them packing;
    they couldn’t face you.

13 Show your strength, God, so no one can miss it.
    We are out singing the good news!
