Zabbuli 84

Ya Mukulu wa Bayimbi. Zabbuli ya Batabani ba Koola.

1Eweema zo nga nnungi,
    Ayi Mukama ow’Eggye!
Omwoyo gwange guyaayaana,
    gwagala na kuzirika,
olw’empya za Mukama,
    omutima gwange n’omubiri gwange bikoowoola Katonda omulamu.
Weewaawo,
    ne nkazaluggya yeekoledde ekisu,
    n’akataayi ennyumba mwe binaakulizanga abaana baabyo
awo okumpi n’Ebyoto byo,
    Ayi Mukama Ayinzabyonna, Kabaka wange, era Katonda wange.
Balina omukisa ababeera mu nnyumba yo,
    banaakutenderezanga.

Alina omukisa omuntu eyeesiga amaanyi go,
    era assaayo omwoyo okutambulira mu makubo go.
Bayita mu kiwonvu Baka,
    ne bakifuula ekifo ky’ensulo;
    n’enkuba ya ddumbi n’ejjuza ebidiba byakyo.
Bagenda beeyongera amaanyi,
    okutuusa lwe batuuka mu maaso ga Katonda mu Sayuuni.

Wulira okusaba kwange, Ayi Mukama Katonda ow’Eggye;
    mpuliriza, Ayi Katonda wa Yakobo.
Ayi Katonda, Engabo yaffe,
    tunuulira kabaka wo n’okusaasira oyo gwe wafukako amafuta.

10 Okumala olunaku olumu mu mpya zo,
    kisinga okubeera emyaka olukumi mu bifo ebirala.
Njagala okuba omuggazi mu nnyumba ya Katonda wange,
    okusinga okubeeranga mu weema z’abakola ebibi.
11 Kubanga Mukama Katonda ye njuba yaffe era ye ngabo yaffe;
    atuwa emikisa gye awamu n’ekitiibwa;
tewaliiwo kirungi na kimu ky’ataawa
    abo abatambulira mu makubo ge nga tebaliiko kyakunenyezebwa.

12 Ayi Mukama ow’Eggye
    alina omukisa omuntu akwesiga.

Psalm 84

Psalm 84

For the director of music. According to gittith. A psalm of the Sons of Korah.

Lord who rules over all,
    how lovely is the place where you live!
I can’t wait to be in the courtyards of the Lord’s temple.
    I really want to be there.
My whole being cries out
    for the living God.

Lord who rules over all,
    even the sparrow has found a home near your altar.
My King and my God,
    the swallow also has a nest there,
    where she may have her young.
Blessed are those who live in your house.
    They are always praising you.

Blessed are those whose strength comes from you.
    They have firmly decided to travel to your temple.
As they pass through the dry Valley of Baka,
    they make it a place where water flows.
    The rain in the fall covers it with pools.
Those people get stronger as they go along,
    until each of them appears in Zion, where God lives.

Lord God who rules over all, hear my prayer.
    God of the people of Jacob, listen to me.
God, may you be pleased with your anointed king.
    You appointed him to be like a shield that keeps us safe.

10 A single day in your courtyards is better
    than a thousand anywhere else.
I would rather guard the door of the house of my God
    than live in the tents of sinful people.
11 The Lord God is like the sun that gives us light.
    He is like a shield that keeps us safe.
    The Lord blesses us with favor and honor.
He doesn’t hold back anything good
    from those whose lives are without blame.

12 Lord who rules over all,
    blessed is the person who trusts in you.
