Psalm 112

Psalm 112

Praise the Lord.

Blessed are those who have respect for the Lord.
    They find great delight when they obey God’s commands.

Their children will be powerful in the land.
    Because they are honest, their children will be blessed.
Their family will have wealth and riches.
    They will always be blessed for doing what is right.
Even in the darkness light shines on honest people.
    It shines on those who are kind and tender and godly.
Good things will come to those who are willing to lend freely.
    Good things will come to those who are fair in everything they do.
Those who do what is right will always be secure.
    They will be remembered forever.
They aren’t afraid when bad news comes.
    They stand firm because they trust in the Lord.
Their hearts are secure. They aren’t afraid.
    In the end they will see their enemies destroyed.
They have spread their gifts around to poor people.
    Their good works continue forever.
    They will be powerful and honored.

10 Evil people will see it and be upset.
    They will grind their teeth and become weaker and weaker.
    What evil people long to do can’t succeed.

Zabbuli 112

1Mutendereze Mukama![a]

Alina omukisa omuntu atya Katonda,
    era asanyukira ennyo mu mateeka ge.

Abaana be baliba ba kitiibwa mu nsi;
    omulembe gw’abalongoofu guliweebwa omukisa.
Ennyumba ye enejjulanga ebintu n’obugagga obungi;
    era anaabanga mutuukirivu ennaku zonna.
Ne mu kizikiza, ekitangaala kyakira omulongoofu,
    alina ekisa, n’oyo alina okusaasira, era omutuukirivu.
Omuntu oyo agabira abeetaaga, era tawolera magoba,
    era akola emirimu gye gyonna n’obwenkanya, alifuna ebirungi.
Omutuukirivu talinyeenyezebwa,
    era anajjukirwanga ennaku zonna.
Amawulire amabi tegaamutiisenga,
    kubanga omutima gwe munywevu gwesiga Mukama.
Omutima gwe guteredde, tewali ky’anaatyanga,
    era oluvannyuma alitunuulira abalabe be n’amaaso ag’obuwanguzi.
Agabidde abaavu bye beetaaga;
    mutuukirivu ebbanga lyonna;
    era bonna banaamussangamu ekitiibwa.

10 Omubi anaabirabanga ebyo, n’asunguwala,
    n’aluma abugigi, naye nga talina kya kukola.
    Okwegomba kw’ababi tekuubengako kye kubagasa.
