New International Reader's Version

Psalm 108

Psalm 108

A song. A psalm of David.

God, my heart feels secure.
    I will sing and make music to you with all my heart.
Harp and lyre, wake up!
    I want to sing and make music before the sun rises.
Lord, I will praise you among the nations.
    I will sing about you among the people of the earth.
Great is your love. It is higher than the heavens.
    Your truth reaches to the skies.
God, may you be honored above the heavens.
    Let your glory be over the whole earth.

Save us. Help us with your powerful right hand,
    so that those you love may be saved.
God has spoken from his temple.
    He has said, “I will win the battle.
Then I will divide up the land around Shechem.
    I will divide up the Valley of Sukkoth.
Gilead belongs to me, and so does the land of Manasseh.
    Ephraim is the strongest tribe. It is like a helmet for my head.
    Judah is the royal tribe. It is like a ruler’s scepter.
Moab serves me like one who washes my feet.
    I toss my sandal on Edom to show that I own it.
    I shout to Philistia that I have won the battle.”

10 Who will bring me to the city that has high walls around it?
    Who will lead me to the land of Edom?
11 God, isn’t it you, even though you have now turned away from us?
    Isn’t it you, even though you don’t lead our armies into battle anymore?
12 Help us against our enemies.
    The help people give doesn’t amount to anything.
13 With your help we will win the battle.
    You will walk all over our enemies.

Zabbuli 108

Oluyimba. Zabbuli ya Dawudi.

1Omutima gwange munywevu, Ayi Katonda;
    nnaayimbanga ne nkutendereza n’omwoyo gwange gwonna.
Muzuukuke, mmwe entongooli n’ennanga ey’enkoba,
    nzija kuyimba okukeesa obudde.
Nnaakutenderezanga, Ayi Mukama, mu bantu bonna,
    nnaakuyimbiranga mu mawanga gonna.
Okwagala kwo kunene, kutumbiira okutuuka ku ggulu;
    n’obwesigwa bwo butuuka ku bire.
Ogulumizibwenga, Ayi Katonda, okuyisa eggulu;
    n’ekitiibwa kyo kibune ensi yonna.

Tulokole otuyambe n’omukono gwo ogwa ddyo,
    abo booyagala banunulibwe.
Katonda ayogedde ng’asinziira mu kifo kye ekitukuvu n’agamba nti,
    “Nga nzijudde essanyu, ndisala mu Sekemu,
    era n’Ekiwonvu kya Sukkosi ndikigabanyagabanyaamu.
Ensi ya Gireyaadi yange, n’eya Manase nayo yange.
    Efulayimu mwe muli abalwanyi bange abazira;
    ate mu Yuda mwe munaavanga bakabaka.
Mowaabu be baweereza bange abawulize;
    ate Edomu be baddu bange;
    Abafirisuuti ndibaleekaanira mu ddoboozi ery’omwanguka ery’obuwanguzi.”

10 Ani anantuusa ku kibuga ekigumu ekinywevu?
    Ani anankulembera okunnyingiza mu Edomu?
11 Si ggwe, ayi Katonda, atusudde,
    atakyatabaala n’amaggye gaffe?
12 Tudduukirire nga tulwanyisa abalabe baffe,
    kubanga obuyambi bw’abantu temuli nsa.
13 Bwe tunaabeeranga ne Katonda tunaabanga bawanguzi;
    kubanga y’anaalinnyiriranga abalabe baffe wansi w’ebigere bye.
