The Message

Psalm 32

A David Psalm

1Count yourself lucky, how happy you must be—
    you get a fresh start,
    your slate’s wiped clean.

Count yourself lucky—
    God holds nothing against you
    and you’re holding nothing back from him.

When I kept it all inside,
    my bones turned to powder,
    my words became daylong groans.

The pressure never let up;
    all the juices of my life dried up.

Then I let it all out;
    I said, “I’ll make a clean breast of my failures to God.”

Suddenly the pressure was gone—
    my guilt dissolved,
    my sin disappeared.

These things add up. Every one of us needs to pray;
    when all hell breaks loose and the dam bursts
    we’ll be on high ground, untouched.

God’s my island hideaway,
    keeps danger far from the shore,
    throws garlands of hosannas around my neck.

Let me give you some good advice;
    I’m looking you in the eye
    and giving it to you straight:

“Don’t be ornery like a horse or mule
    that needs bit and bridle
    to stay on track.”

10 God-defiers are always in trouble;
    God-affirmers find themselves loved
    every time they turn around.

11 Celebrate God.
    Sing together—everyone!
    All you honest hearts, raise the roof!

Zabbuli 32

Zabbuli ya Dawudi.

1Alina omukisa oyo
    asonyiyiddwa ebyonoono bye
    ekibi ne kiggyibwawo.
Alina omukisa omuntu oyo
    Mukama gw’atakyabalira kibi kye,
    ne mu mutima gwe nga temuli bukuusa.

Bwe nasirikiranga ekibi kyange,
    ne nkogga,
    kubanga nasindanga olunaku lwonna.
Wambonerezanga
    emisana n’ekiro,
amaanyi ne ganzigwamu
    ng’amazzi bwe gakalira mu kyeya.

Awo ne nkwatulira ekibi kyange,
    ne sibikkirira kwonoona kwange.
Ne njogera nti,
    “Leka neenenyeze Mukama ebibi byange.”
Bw’otyo n’onsonyiwa,
    n’onziggyako omusango gw’ebibi byange.

Noolwekyo abaweereza bo bonna abeesigwa
    bakwegayirire ng’okyalabika;
oluvannyuma ebizibu bwe birijja,
    ng’amazzi ag’amaanyi amangi tebiribatuukako.
Oli kifo kyange mwe nneekweka,
    ononkuumanga ne situukwako kabi
    era ononneetooloozanga ennyimba ez’obulokozi.

Nnaakulagiranga era ne nkuyigiriza ekkubo mw’onootambuliranga;
    nnaakuwanga amagezi nga bwe nkulabirira.
Temubeeranga ng’embalaasi
    oba ennyumbu ezitategeera,
ze bateekwa okussa ekyuma mu kamwa ekisibwa ku lukoba,
    ziryoke zifugibwe zijje gy’oli.
10 Ababi balaba ennaku nnyingi;
    naye abeesiga Mukama bakuumirwa
    mu kwagala kwe okutaggwaawo.

11 Musanyukire mu Mukama era mujaguze mmwe abatuukirivu,
    era muyimbire waggulu n’essanyu mmwe abalina omutima omulongoofu.
