Zabbuli 35

Zabbuli ya Dawudi.

1Ayi Mukama, wakanya abo abampakanya,
    lwanyisa abo abannwanyisa.
Golokoka okwate engabo,
    n’akagabo onziruukirire.
Galula effumu,
    abangigganya obazibire ekkubo;
otegeeze omwoyo gwange nti,
    “Nze bulokozi bwo.”

Abo bonna abannoonya okunzita bajolongebwe
    era baswazibwe;
abo abateesa okunsanyaawo
    bazzibweyo ennyuma babune emiwabo.
Babe ng’ebisusunku ebifuumuulibwa empewo,
    malayika wa Mukama ng’abagoba.
Ekkubo lyabwe libe lya kizikiza era lijjule obuseerezi, ne malayika wa Mukama ng’abagoba.

Nga bwe bantega omutego nga siriiko kye mbakoze,
    ne bansimira n’ekinnya mu kkubo lyange awatali nsonga,
bazikirizibwe nga tebategedde,
    n’omutego gwe banteze be baba bagugwamu,
    era bagwe ne mu kinnya kiri bazikirire.
Omwoyo gwange ne gulyoka gujaguliza mu Mukama,
    ne gusanyukira mu bulokozi bwe.
10 Amagumba gange galyogera nti,
    “Ani afaanana nga ggwe, Ayi Mukama?
Kubanga abaavu obadduukirira n’obawonya ababasinza amaanyi,
    n’abali mu kwetaaga n’obawonya abanyazi.”

11 Abajulizi abakambwe bagolokoka
    ne bambuuza ebintu bye sirinaako kye mmanyi.
12 Bwe mbayisa obulungi bo bampisa bubi,
    ne banakuwaza omwoyo gwange.
13 So nga bwe baalwala nanakuwala ne nnyambala ebibukutu,
    ne neerumya nga nsiiba, ne nsaba Mukama nga nkotese omutwe,
naye okusaba kwange bwe kutaddibwamu,
14     ne mbeera mu nnaku
    ng’ankungubagira ow’omukwano
oba owooluganda nkoteka omutwe gwange mu buyinike
    ng’akaabira nnyina.
15 Naye bwe nagwa mu kabi ne beekuŋŋaanya nga basanyuse;
    ne bannumba nga simanyi,
    ne bampayiriza obutata.
16 Banduulidde n’ettima ng’abatamanyi Katonda bwe bakola,
    ne bannumira obujiji.
17 Ayi Mukama, olituusa ddi ng’otunula butunuzi?
    Nziruukirira nga bannumba, obulamu bwange obuwonye okutaagulwataagulwa,
    obulamu bwange obw’omuwendo eri empologoma zino.
18 Nnaakwebalizanga mu lukuŋŋaana olukulu,
    ne nkutenderezanga mu kibiina ky’abantu abangi ennyo.
19 Tokkiriza balabe bange kunneeyagalirako,
    abankyawa awatali nsonga;
abankyayira obwereere
    tobakkiriza kunziimuula.
20 Teboogera bya mirembe,
    wabula okuwaayiriza abantu abeetuulidde emirembe mu nsi.
21 Banjasamiza akamwa kaabwe ne boogera nti,
    “Leero luno, ky’okoze tukirabye n’amaaso gaffe.”

22 Bino byonna obirabye, Ayi Mukama.
    Noolwekyo tosirika. Tonsuulirira, Ayi Mukama.
23 Golokoka ojje onnyambe;
    nnwanirira Ayi Katonda wange era Mukama wange.
24 Mu butuukirivu bwo nnejjeereza, Ayi Mukama Katonda wange,
    tobaganya kunneeyagalirako.
25 Tobaleka kulowooza nti, “Leero luno! Kino kye twali twagala!”
    Oba nti, “Tumusaanyizzaawo!”

26 Abo bonna abanneeyagalirako olw’ennaku yange ne beesanyusa,
    batabulwetabulwe era baswazibwe;
abo bonna abanneegulumirizaako
    baswazibwe era banyoomebwe.
27 Abo abasanyuka ng’annejjeereza,
    baleekaanire waggulu olw’essanyu n’okujaganya;
era boogerenga nti, “Mukama agulumizibwe,
    asanyuka omuweereza we ng’atebenkedde.”

28 Olulimi lwange lunaayogeranga ku butuukirivu bwo,
    era nnaakutenderezanga olunaku lwonna.

New International Reader's Version

Psalm 35

Psalm 35

A psalm of David.

Lord, stand up against those who stand up against me.
    Fight against those who fight against me.
Pick up your shield and your armor.
    Rise up and help me.
Get your spear and javelin ready to fight
    against those who are chasing me.
    Say to me, “I will save you.”

Let those who are trying to kill me
    be brought down in dishonor.
Let those who plan to destroy me
    be turned back in terror.
Let them be like straw blowing in the wind,
    while the angel of the Lord drives them away.
Let their path be dark and slippery,
    while the angel of the Lord chases them.
They set a trap for me without any reason.
    Without any reason they dug a pit to catch me.
So let them be destroyed without warning.
    Let the trap they set for me catch them.
    Let them fall into the pit and be destroyed.
Then I will be full of joy because of what the Lord has done.
    I will be glad because he has saved me.
10 My whole being will cry out,
    “Who is like you, Lord?
You save poor people from those who are too strong for them.
    You save poor and needy people from those who rob them.”

11 Mean people come forward to speak against me.
    They ask me things I don’t know anything about.
12 They pay me back with evil, even though I was good to them.
    They leave me like someone who has lost a family member.
13 But when they were sick, I put on the clothing of sadness.
    I made myself humble by going without food.
My prayers for them weren’t always answered.
14     So I went around crying
    as if I were mourning over my friend or relative.
I bowed my head in sadness
    as if I were weeping over my mother.
15 But when I tripped and fell, they were all very happy.
    Attackers gathered against me when I didn’t even know it.
    They kept on telling lies about me.
16 Like ungodly people, they were mean and made fun of me.
    They ground their teeth at me in hate.
17 Lord, how much longer will you just look on?
    Save me from their deadly attacks.
Save the only life I have.
    Save me from these lions.
18 I will give you thanks in the whole community.
    Among all your people I will praise you.

19 Don’t let those who are my enemies without any reason
    laugh at me and make fun of me.
Don’t let those who hate me without any reason
    wink at me with an evil purpose.
20 They don’t speak words of peace.
    They make up false charges
    against those who live quietly in the land.
21 They make fun of me.
    They say, “With our own eyes we have seen what you did.”

22 Lord, you have seen this. Don’t be silent.
    Lord, don’t be far away from me.
23 Wake up! Rise up to help me!
    My God and Lord, stand up for me.
24 Lord my God, when you hand down your sentence, let it be in my favor.
    You always do what is right.
    Don’t let my enemies have the joy of seeing me fall.
25 Don’t let them think, “That’s exactly what we wanted!”
    Don’t let them say, “We have swallowed him up.”

26 Let all those who laugh at me because I’m in trouble
    be ashamed and bewildered.
Let all who think they are better than I am
    put on shame and dishonor as if they were clothes.
27 Let those who are happy when my name is cleared
    shout with joy and gladness.
Let them always say, “May the Lord be honored.
    He is pleased when everything goes well with the one who serves him.”
28 You always do what is right. My tongue will speak about it
    and praise you all day long.
