Psalm 28

Psalm 28

A psalm of David.

Lord, my Rock, I call out to you.
    Pay attention to me.
If you remain silent, I will die.
    I will be like those who go down into the grave.
Hear my cry for your favor
    when I call out to you for help.
Hear me when I lift up my hands in prayer
    toward your Most Holy Room.

Don’t drag me away with sinners.
    Don’t drag me away with those who do evil.
They speak in a friendly way to their neighbors.
    But their hearts are full of hate.
Pay them back for their evil actions.
    Pay them back for what their hands have done.
    Give them exactly what they should get.
They don’t care about the Lord’s mighty acts.
    They don’t care about what his hands have done.
So he will tear them down.
    He will never build them up again.

Give praise to the Lord.
    He has heard my cry for his favor.
The Lord gives me strength. He is like a shield that keeps me safe.
    My heart trusts in him, and he helps me.
My heart jumps for joy.
    With my song I praise him.

The Lord gives strength to his people.
    He guards and saves his anointed king.
Save your people. Bless those who belong to you.
    Be their shepherd. Take care of them forever.

Zabbuli 28

Zabbuli ya Dawudi.

1Nkukoowoola ggwe, Ayi Mukama, Olwazi lwange,
    tolema kumpuliriza;
kubanga bw’onoonsiriikirira
    nzija kuba nga bali abakkirira mu kinnya.
Owulire eddoboozi ery’okwegayirira kwange,
    nga mpanise emikono gyange
okwolekera ekifo kyo ekisinga byonna obutukuvu,
    nga nkukaabirira okunnyamba.

Tontwalira mu boonoonyi,
    abakola ebibi;
abanyumya obulungi ne bannaabwe,
    so ng’emitima gyabwe gijjudde bukyayi bwerere.
Basasule ng’ebikolwa byabwe bwe biri,
    n’olw’ebyambyone bye bakoze.
Basasule olwa byonna emikono gyabwe gye bisobezza,
    obabonereze nga bwe basaanidde.

Olwokubanga tebafaayo ku mirimu gya Mukama,
    oba ku ebyo bye yakola n’emikono gye,
alibazikiririza ddala,
    era talibaddiramu.

Atenderezebwe Mukama,
    kubanga awulidde eddoboozi ly’okwegayirira kwange.
Mukama ge maanyi gange,
    era ye ngabo yange, ye gwe neesiga.
Bwe ntyo ne nyambibwa.
    Omutima gwange gunaajaguzanga, ne mmuyimbira ennyimba ez’okumwebazanga.

Mukama y’awa abantu be amaanyi,
    era kye kiddukiro eky’obulokozi bw’oyo gwe yafukako amafuta.
Olokole abantu bo, obawe omukisa abalonde bo.
    Obakulemberenga ng’omusumba, era obawanirirenga emirembe gyonna.
