Psalm 4

Psalm 4

For the director of music. A psalm of David to be played on stringed instruments.

My faithful God,
    answer me when I call out to you.
Give me rest from my trouble.
    Have mercy on me. Hear my prayer.

How long will you people turn my glory into shame?
    How long will you love what will certainly fail you?
    How long will you pray to statues of gods?
Remember that the Lord has set apart his faithful servant for himself.
    The Lord hears me when I call out to him.

Tremble and do not sin.
    When you are in bed,
    look deep down inside yourself and be silent.
Offer to the Lord the sacrifices that godly people offer.
    Trust in him.

Lord, many are asking, “Who will make us successful?”
    Lord, may you do good things for us.
Fill my heart with joy
    when the people have lots of grain and fresh wine.
In peace I will lie down and sleep.
    Lord, you alone keep me safe.

Zabbuli 4

Ya mukulu wa Bayimbi. Eyimbibwa n’ebivuga eby’enkoba. Zabbuli ya Dawudi.

1Bwe nkukoowoola onnyanukule,
    Ayi Katonda wange omutuukirivu.
Bwe mba mu nnaku, onnyambe.
    Onkwatirwe ekisa owulire okusaba kwange.

Mmwe abaana b’abantu, mulituusa wa okuswazanga ekitiibwa kyange?
    Mulituusa ddi okugoberera okwagala ebitaliimu, n’okunoonya eby’obulimba?
Naye mutegeere nga Mukama yeerondeddemu abo abamugondera.
    Bwe nnaamukoowoolanga anampuliranga era anannyanukulanga.

Ne bwe munyiiga ennyo, temusaana kwonoona; musiriikirire,
    mwekebere era mufumiitirize mu mitima gyammwe nga mugalamidde ku bitanda byammwe.
Muweeyo ebiweebwayo ebisaanidde;
    era mwesigenga Mukama.

Waliwo bangi abasaba nti, “Oyongere okutulaga ebirungi, Ayi Mukama,
    otumulisize omusana gw’amaaso go.”
Ondeetedde essanyu lingi mu mutima gwange
    erisinga ne lye bafuna mu makungula nga batunuulira ku bibala byabwe ebingi.

Nnaagalamira ne nneebaka mirembe;
    kubanga ggwe wekka, Ayi Mukama,
    ggwe ondabirira akabi ne katantuukako.
