Nahum 1

God Is Awesome

1The [a]oracle of Nineveh. The book of the vision of Nahum the Elkoshite.

A jealous and avenging God is the Lord;
The Lord is avenging and [b]wrathful.
The Lord takes vengeance on His adversaries,
And He reserves wrath for His enemies.
The Lord is slow to anger and great in power,
And the Lord will by no means leave the guilty unpunished.
In whirlwind and storm is His way,
And clouds are the dust beneath His feet.
He rebukes the sea and makes it dry;
He dries up all the rivers.
Bashan and Carmel wither;
The blossoms of Lebanon wither.
Mountains quake because of Him
And the hills dissolve;
Indeed the earth is upheaved by His presence,
The world and all the inhabitants in it.
Who can stand before His indignation?
Who can endure the burning of His anger?
His wrath is poured out like fire
And the rocks are broken up by Him.
The Lord is good,
A stronghold in the day of trouble,
And He knows those who take refuge in Him.
But with an overflowing flood
He will make a complete end of [c]its site,
And will pursue His enemies into darkness.

Whatever you devise against the Lord,
He will make a complete end of it.
Distress will not rise up twice.
10 Like tangled thorns,
And like those who are drunken with their drink,
They are consumed
As stubble completely withered.
11 From you has gone forth
One who plotted evil against the Lord,
A [d]wicked counselor.

12 Thus says the Lord,

“Though they are at full strength and likewise many,
Even so, they will be cut off and pass away.
Though I have afflicted you,
I will afflict you no longer.
13 “So now, I will break his yoke bar from upon you,
And I will tear off your shackles.”

14 The Lord has issued a command concerning [e]you:
[f]Your name will no longer be perpetuated.
I will cut off [g]idol and [h]image
From the house of your gods.
I will prepare your grave,
For you are contemptible.”

15 [i]Behold, on the mountains the feet of him who brings good news,
Who announces peace!
Celebrate your feasts, O Judah;
Pay your vows.
For never again will the [j]wicked one pass through you;
He is cut off completely.

Nakkumu 1

1Kuno kwe kwolesebwa Katonda kwe yalaga Nakkumu, Omwerukoosi okukwata ku bibambulira ebyali bijjira Nineeve.

Obusungu bwa Mukama ku Nineeve

Katonda wa buggya era Mukama awalana eggwanga.
    Mukama awalana eggwanga era ajudde ekiruyi.
Mukama yeesasuza ku balabe be
    era aterekera abamuwakanya obusungu bwe.
Mukama tatera kusunguwala, ate nga wa maanyi mangi
    era tayinza n’akatono butabonereza oyo gwe gusinze.
Ekkubo lye liri mu mpewo ey’akazimu ne mu kibuyaga,
    n’ebire ye nfuufu y’ebigere bye.
Akangavvula ennyanja n’agikaza
    era akaza emigga gyonna,
ennimiro ez’omu Basani zikala, olusozi Kalumeeri lwonna lukayuse,
    n’ebimuli bya Lebanooni biwotose.
Ensozi zikankanira mu maaso ga Katonda,
    obusozi ne busaanuuka,
ettaka ne lyatikayatika mu maaso ge,
    ensi n’ekankana n’abantu bonna abagirimu.
Ani ayinza okuyimirira mu maaso ge ng’asunguwadde?
    Ani ayinza okugumira obusungu bwe obw’amaanyi?
Ekiruyi kye kibuubuuka ng’omuliro,
    n’enjazi n’eziyatikayatika.

Mukama mulungi,
    kiddukiro mu kiseera eky’okulabiramu ennaku,
era alabirira abo bonna abamwesiga.
    Naye alisaanyaawo abalabe be mu mataba amazibu,
ekizikiza kiribawondera.

Buli kye mwekobaana okukola Mukama,
    alikikomya.
    Akabi tekalijja mulundi gwakubiri.
10 Kubanga baliba ng’amaggwa agakwataganye,
    era nga batamidde,
    balyoke bookebwe omuliro ng’ekisambu ekikalu.
11 Mu ggwe Nineeve muvuddemu omuntu
    alowooza akabi
    era ateesa ebibi ku Mukama.

12 Bw’ati bw’ayogera Mukama nti,

“Newaakubadde nga balina be bakolagana nabo bangi, ate nga bangi,
    balizikirizibwa ne baggwaawo.
Newaakubadde nga mbabonereza mmwe abantu bange,
    siriddayo kukikola nate.
13 Kaakano nzija kumenya ekikoligo kyabwe nkibaggyeko
    era n’ebibasibye nnaabikutulakutula.”

14 Kino Mukama ky’alagidde ekikwata ku Nineeve:
    “Erinnya lyo terikyayala nate.
Ndizikiriza ekifaananyi ekyole n’ekifaananyi ekisaanuuse
    ebiri mu masabo g’abakatonda bo;
ndisima entaana yo
    kubanga oyinze obugwagwa.”

15 Yimusa amaaso, tunula ku nsozi, laba,
    ebigere ebirungi eby’oyo aleese amawulire amalungi,
    alangirira emirembe.
Ggwe Yuda kwata embaga zo entukuvu,
    era otuukirize obweyamo bwo;
omubi kaakano takyakulumba,
    azikiririzibbwa ddala, tolimulaba nate.
