The Message

Psalm 75

An Asaph Psalm

1We thank you, God, we thank you—
    your Name is our favorite word;
    your mighty works are all we talk about.

2-4 You say, “I’m calling this meeting to order,
    I’m ready to set things right.
When the earth goes topsy-turvy
    And nobody knows which end is up,
I nail it all down,
    I put everything in place again.
I say to the smart alecks, ‘That’s enough,’
    to the bullies, ‘Not so fast.’”

5-6 Don’t raise your fist against High God.
    Don’t raise your voice against Rock of Ages.
He’s the One from east to west;
    from desert to mountains, he’s the One.

7-8 God rules: he brings this one down to his knees,
    pulls that one up on her feet.
God has a cup in his hand,
    a bowl of wine, full to the brim.
He draws from it and pours;
    it’s drained to the dregs.
Earth’s wicked ones drink it all,
    drink it down to the last bitter drop!

9-10 And I’m telling the story of God Eternal,
    singing the praises of Jacob’s God.
The fists of the wicked
    are bloody stumps,
The arms of the righteous
    are lofty green branches.

Zabbuli 75

Ya Mukulu wa Bayimbi. Ku ddoboozi, “Tozikiriza.” Zabbuli ya Asafu. Oluyimba.

1Tukwebaza, Ayi Katonda.
    Tukwebaza, kubanga Erinnya lyo liri kumpi.
    Abantu boogera ku bikolwa byo eby’ekyewuunyo.

Mukama Katonda oyogera nti, “Neerondera ekiseera kye neetegekera
    era nsala omusango gwa bwenkanya.
Kyokka newaakubadde ng’ensi eyuuguuma abantu ne beeraliikirira,
    naye nze nywezezza empagi zaayo.”
Nalabula ab’amalala bagaleke,
    n’ababi bakomye okuyimusa ejjembe lyabwe ng’ery’embogo.
Mukomye okuyimusa ejjembe lyammwe eri eggulu
    n’okwogera nga muduula.

Kubanga okugulumizibwa tekuva mu ddungu
    era n’obuyinza tebuva buvanjuba wadde obugwanjuba bw’ensi,
wabula biva eri Katonda;
    era ye y’agulumiza omu ate n’atoowaza omulala.
Mukama akutte mu mukono gwe ekikompe eky’obusungu bwe
    ekijjudde omwenge ogutabuddwamu ebirungo era kijjudde ejjovu;
akifuka, aboonoonyi bonna ku nsi
    ne bakinywa ne bakimaliramu ddala.

Naye nze nnaatendanga obulungi bwa Mukama;
    nnaatenderezanga Katonda wa Yakobo ennaku zonna.
10 Mukama ayogera nti, Ababi ndibamalamu amaanyi,
    naye abatuukirivu nnaabongeranga amaanyi.
