Ya Mukulu wa Bayimbi. Ku ddoboozi, “Tozikiriza.” Zabbuli ya Dawudi, Sawulo bwe yatuma bakuume enju ya Dawudi bamutte.

1Ayi Katonda wange, mponya abalabe bange;
    onnwanirire, abantu bwe bangolokokerako.
Omponye abakola ebitali bya butuukirivu,
    era ondokole mu batemu.

Laba banneekwekeredde nga banteega okunzita.
    Abasajja ab’amaanyi abakambwe banneekobera, Ayi Mukama,
    so nga soonoonye wadde okubaako ne kye nsobezza.
Sirina kye nsobezza, naye bateekateeka okunnumba.
    Tunuulira obuzibu bwange, osituke, onnyambe.
Ayi Mukama Katonda ow’Eggye, Katonda wa Isirayiri,
    golokoka obonereze amawanga gonna;
    abo bonna abasala enkwe tobasaasira.

Bakomawo buli kiro,
    nga babolooga ng’embwa,
    ne batambulatambula mu kibuga.
Laba, bwe bavuma!
    Ebigambo biwamatuka mu kamwa kaabwe ng’ebitala,
    nga boogera nti, “Ani atuwulira?”
Naye ggwe, Ayi Mukama, obasekerera,
    era amawanga ago gonna oganyooma.

Ayi Katonda, Amaanyi gange, nnaakwesiganga
era nnaakutenderezanga, kubanga ggwe kigo kyange ekinywevu. 10     Katonda wange anjagala
anankulemberanga,
    ne ndyoka neeyagalira ku balabe bange.
11 Tobatta, Ayi Mukama, engabo yaffe,
    abantu bange baleme kwerabira;
mu buyinza bwo obungi, baleke batangetange;
    n’oluvannyuma obakkakkanyize ddala.
12 Amalala gaabwe n’ebyonoono ebiva mu kamwa kaabwe,
    n’ebigambo by’oku mimwa gyabwe
    leka byonna bibatege ng’omutego.
Kubanga bakolima era ne boogera eby’obulimba.
13     Bamaleewo n’ekiruyi kyo,
    bamalirewo ddala;
amawanga gonna galyoke gategeere
    nga Katonda wa Yakobo y’afuga ensi yonna.

14 Bakomawo nga buwungedde
    nga babolooga ng’embwa,
    ne batambulatambula mu kibuga.
15 Banoonya emmere buli wantu mu kibuga,
    ne bawowoggana bwe batakkuta.
16 Naye nze nnaayimbanga nga ntendereza amaanyi go;
    mu makya nnaayimbanga ku kwagala kwo;
kubanga ggwe kigo kyange,
    era ggwe kiddukiro kyange mu buzibu bwange.

17 Ggwe, Ayi Katonda, Amaanyi gange, nnaakuyimbiranga nga nkutendereza;
    kubanga ggwe kigo kyange, era ggwe Katonda wange, anjagala.

Psalm 59

Psalm 59

For the choir director: A psalm[a] of David, regarding the time Saul sent soldiers to watch David’s house in order to kill him. To be sung to the tune “Do Not Destroy!”

Rescue me from my enemies, O God.
    Protect me from those who have come to destroy me.
Rescue me from these criminals;
    save me from these murderers.
They have set an ambush for me.
    Fierce enemies are out there waiting, Lord,
    though I have not sinned or offended them.
I have done nothing wrong,
    yet they prepare to attack me.
    Wake up! See what is happening and help me!
O Lord God of Heaven’s Armies, the God of Israel,
    wake up and punish those hostile nations.
    Show no mercy to wicked traitors. Interlude

They come out at night,
    snarling like vicious dogs
    as they prowl the streets.
Listen to the filth that comes from their mouths;
    their words cut like swords.
    “After all, who can hear us?” they sneer.
But Lord, you laugh at them.
    You scoff at all the hostile nations.
You are my strength; I wait for you to rescue me,
    for you, O God, are my fortress.
10 In his unfailing love, my God will stand with me.
    He will let me look down in triumph on all my enemies.

11 Don’t kill them, for my people soon forget such lessons;
    stagger them with your power, and bring them to their knees,
    O Lord our shield.
12 Because of the sinful things they say,
    because of the evil that is on their lips,
let them be captured by their pride,
    their curses, and their lies.
13 Destroy them in your anger!
    Wipe them out completely!
Then the whole world will know
    that God reigns in Israel.[b] Interlude

14 My enemies come out at night,
    snarling like vicious dogs
    as they prowl the streets.
15 They scavenge for food
    but go to sleep unsatisfied.[c]

16 But as for me, I will sing about your power.
    Each morning I will sing with joy about your unfailing love.
For you have been my refuge,
    a place of safety when I am in distress.
17 O my Strength, to you I sing praises,
    for you, O God, are my refuge,
    the God who shows me unfailing love.
