The Message

Psalm 52

A David Psalm, When Doeg the Edomite Reported to Saul, “David’s at Ahimelech’s House”

11-4 Why do you brag of evil, “Big Man”?
    God’s mercy carries the day.
You scheme catastrophe;
    your tongue cuts razor-sharp,
    artisan in lies.
You love evil more than good,
    you call black white.
You love malicious gossip,
    you foul-mouth.

God will tear you limb from limb,
    sweep you up and throw you out,
Pull you up by the roots
    from the land of life.

6-7 Good people will watch and
    worship. They’ll laugh in relief:
“Big Man bet on the wrong horse,
    trusted in big money,
    made his living from catastrophe.”

And I’m an olive tree,
    growing green in God’s house.
I trusted in the generous mercy
    of God then and now.

I thank you always
    that you went into action.
And I’ll stay right here,
    your good name my hope,
    in company with your faithful friends.

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.
