Zabbuli 4

Ya mukulu wa Bayimbi. Eyimbibwa n’ebivuga eby’enkoba. Zabbuli ya Dawudi.

1Bwe nkukoowoola onnyanukule,
    Ayi Katonda wange omutuukirivu.
Bwe mba mu nnaku, onnyambe.
    Onkwatirwe ekisa owulire okusaba kwange.

Mmwe abaana b’abantu, mulituusa wa okuswazanga ekitiibwa kyange?
    Mulituusa ddi okugoberera okwagala ebitaliimu, n’okunoonya eby’obulimba?
Naye mutegeere nga Mukama yeerondeddemu abo abamugondera.
    Bwe nnaamukoowoolanga anampuliranga era anannyanukulanga.

Ne bwe munyiiga ennyo, temusaana kwonoona; musiriikirire,
    mwekebere era mufumiitirize mu mitima gyammwe nga mugalamidde ku bitanda byammwe.
Muweeyo ebiweebwayo ebisaanidde;
    era mwesigenga Mukama.

Waliwo bangi abasaba nti, “Oyongere okutulaga ebirungi, Ayi Mukama,
    otumulisize omusana gw’amaaso go.”
Ondeetedde essanyu lingi mu mutima gwange
    erisinga ne lye bafuna mu makungula nga batunuulira ku bibala byabwe ebingi.

Nnaagalamira ne nneebaka mirembe;
    kubanga ggwe wekka, Ayi Mukama,
    ggwe ondabirira akabi ne katantuukako.

Psalm 4

Psalm 4

For the choir director: A psalm of David, to be accompanied by stringed instruments.

Answer me when I call to you,
    O God who declares me innocent.
Free me from my troubles.
    Have mercy on me and hear my prayer.

How long will you people ruin my reputation?
    How long will you make groundless accusations?
    How long will you continue your lies? Interlude
You can be sure of this:
    The Lord set apart the godly for himself.
    The Lord will answer when I call to him.

Don’t sin by letting anger control you.
    Think about it overnight and remain silent. Interlude
Offer sacrifices in the right spirit,
    and trust the Lord.

Many people say, “Who will show us better times?”
    Let your face smile on us, Lord.
You have given me greater joy
    than those who have abundant harvests of grain and new wine.
In peace I will lie down and sleep,
    for you alone, O Lord, will keep me safe.
