The Message

Psalm 95

11-2 Come, let’s shout praises to God,
    raise the roof for the Rock who saved us!
Let’s march into his presence singing praises,
    lifting the rafters with our hymns!

3-5 And why? Because God is the best,
    High King over all the gods.
In one hand he holds deep caves and caverns,
    in the other hand grasps the high mountains.
He made Ocean—he owns it!
    His hands sculpted Earth!

6-7 So come, let us worship: bow before him,
    on your knees before God, who made us!
Oh yes, he’s our God,
    and we’re the people he pastures, the flock he feeds.

7-11 Drop everything and listen, listen as he speaks:
    “Don’t turn a deaf ear as in the Bitter Uprising,
As on the day of the Wilderness Test,
    when your ancestors turned and put me to the test.
For forty years they watched me at work among them,
    as over and over they tried my patience.
And I was provoked—oh, was I provoked!
    ‘Can’t they keep their minds on God for five minutes?
    Do they simply refuse to walk down my road?’
Exasperated, I exploded,
    ‘They’ll never get where they’re headed,
    never be able to sit down and rest.’”

Zabbuli 95

1Mujje tuyimbire Mukama;
    tuyimbire waggulu n’essanyu nga tutendereza Mukama Olwazi olw’obulokozi bwaffe.
Tujje mu maaso ge n’okwebaza;
    tumuyimbire ennyimba ez’okumutendereza.

Kubanga Mukama ye Katonda Omukulu;
    era Kabaka Omukulu asinga bakatonda bonna.
Enkonko ez’ensi ziri mu mukono gwe;
    n’entikko z’ensozi nazo zize.
Ennyanja yiye, kubanga ye yagikola;
    n’emikono gye, gye gyabumba olukalu.

Mujje tusinze tuvuuname mu maaso ge;
    tufukamire mu maaso ga Mukama, Omutonzi waffe.
Kubanga ye Katonda waffe,
    naffe tuli bantu ab’omu ddundiro lye,
    era tuli ndiga ze z’alabirira.

Olwa leero bwe muwulira eddoboozi lye,
    “Temukakanyaza mitima gyammwe nga bwe kyali e Meriba[a],
    ne ku lunaku luli e Maasa[b] mu ddungu;
bajjajjammwe gye bangezesa;
    newaakubadde baali baalaba dda ebyamagero bye nakola.
10 Abantu b’omulembe ogwo ne mbasunguwalira okumala emyaka amakumi ana;
    ne ŋŋamba nti, ‘Be bantu abakyama mu mutima gwabwe,
    era tebamanyi makubo gange.’
11 Kyennava ndayira nga nsunguwadde nti,
    ‘Tebaliyingira mu kiwummulo kyange.’ ”
