Endagaano Enkadde nʼEndagaano Empya

Zabbuli 52

Ya Mukulu wa Bayimbi. Zabbuli ya Dawudi Dowegi Omwedomu bwe yagenda n’abuulira Sawulo nti, “Dawudi alaze mu nnyumba ya Akimereki.”

1Lwaki weenyumiririza mu kibi ggwe omusajja ow’amaanyi?
    Endagaano ya Katonda ey’obwesigwa ebeerera emirembe n’emirembe.
Oteekateeka enkwe ez’okuzikiriza.
    Olulimi lwo lwogi nga kkirita
    era buli kiseera lwogera bya bulimba.
Oyagala okukola ebibi okusinga okukola ebirungi,
    n’okulimba okusinga okwogera amazima.
Osanyukira nnyo okwogera ebirumya.
    Ggwe olulimi kalimbira!

Kyokka Katonda alikuzikiriza emirembe gyonna;
    alikusikula, akuggye mu maka go;
    alikugoba mu nsi y’abalamu.
Bino abatuukirivu balibiraba, ne babitunuulira nga batidde.
    Naye balikusekerera, nga bwe bagamba nti,
“Mumulabe omusajja
    ateesiga Katonda okuba ekiddukiro kye,
naye ne yeesiganga obugagga bwe obungi,
    ne yeeyongera n’amaanyi ng’azikiriza abalala.”

Naye nze nfaanana ng’omuti omuzeyituuni
    ogukulira mu nnyumba ya Katonda.
Neesiga okwagala kwa Katonda okutaggwaawo
    emirembe n’emirembe.
Nnaakwebazanga emirembe gyonna olw’ekyo ky’okoze.
    Nneesiganga erinnya lyo kubanga erinnya lyo ddungi;
    era nnaakutendererezanga awali abatuukirivu bo.

Psalm 52

Psalm 52[a]

For the director of music. A maskil[b] of David. When Doeg the Edomite had gone to Saul and told him: ‘David has gone to the house of Ahimelek.’

Why do you boast of evil, you mighty hero?
    Why do you boast all day long,
    you who are a disgrace in the eyes of God?
You who practise deceit,
    your tongue plots destruction;
    it is like a sharpened razor.
You love evil rather than good,
    falsehood rather than speaking the truth.[c]
You love every harmful word,
    you deceitful tongue!

Surely God will bring you down to everlasting ruin:
    he will snatch you up and pluck you from your tent;
    he will uproot you from the land of the living.
The righteous will see and fear;
    they will laugh at you, saying,
‘Here now is the man
    who did not make God his stronghold
but trusted in his great wealth
    and grew strong by destroying others!’

But I am like an olive tree
    flourishing in the house of God;
I trust in God’s unfailing love
    for ever and ever.
For what you have done I will always praise you
    in the presence of your faithful people.
And I will hope in your name,
    for your name is good.
