Endagaano Enkadde nʼEndagaano Empya

Zabbuli 85

Ya Mukulu wa Bayimbi. Zabbuli ya Batabani ba Koola.

1Ensi yo ogikoledde ebyekisa Ayi Mukama;
    Yakobo omuddizza ebibye.
Abantu bo obasonyiye ebyonoono byabwe,
    n’ebibi byabwe byonna n’obibikkako.
Ekiruyi kyo kyonna okirese,
    n’oleka n’obusungu bwo obubuubuuka.

Tukomyewo gy’oli, Ayi Katonda w’obulokozi bwaffe,
    oleke okutusunguwalira.
Onootusunguwaliranga emirembe gyonna?
    Onootunyiigiranga emirembe n’emirembe?
Tolituzaamu ndasi,
    abantu bo basanyukirenga mu ggwe?
Tulage okwagala kwo okutaggwaawo Ayi Katonda,
    era otuwe obulokozi bwo.

Nnaawulirizanga Mukama Katonda by’agamba;
    asuubiza abantu be, be batukuvu be, okubawa emirembe;
    naye tebaddayo mu byonoono byabwe.
Ddala ddala obulokozi bwe busemberera abo abamutya,
    ensi yaffe n’eryoka ejjula ekitiibwa kye.

10 Okwagala n’obwesigwa bisisinkanye;
    obutuukirivu n’emirembe binywegeraganye.
11 Obwesigwa bulose mu nsi,
    n’obutukuvu ne butunuulira ensi nga businzira mu ggulu.
12 Ddala ddala Katonda anaatuwanga ebirungi,
    n’ensi yaffe eneebalanga ebibala bingi.
13 Obutuukirivu bunaamukulemberanga,
    era bunaateekateekanga ekkubo mw’anaayitanga.

The Message

Psalm 85

A Korah Psalm

11-3 God, you smiled on your good earth!
    You brought good times back to Jacob!
You lifted the cloud of guilt from your people,
    you put their sins far out of sight.
You took back your sin-provoked threats,
    you cooled your hot, righteous anger.

4-7 Help us again, God of our help;
    don’t hold a grudge against us forever.
You aren’t going to keep this up, are you?
    scowling and angry, year after year?
Why not help us make a fresh start—a resurrection life?
    Then your people will laugh and sing!
Show us how much you love us, God!
    Give us the salvation we need!

8-9 I can’t wait to hear what he’ll say.
    God’s about to pronounce his people well,
The holy people he loves so much,
    so they’ll never again live like fools.
See how close his salvation is to those who fear him?
    Our country is home base for Glory!

10-13 Love and Truth meet in the street,
    Right Living and Whole Living embrace and kiss!
Truth sprouts green from the ground,
    Right Living pours down from the skies!
Oh yes! God gives Goodness and Beauty;
    our land responds with Bounty and Blessing.
Right Living strides out before him,
    and clears a path for his passage.
