For the director of music. A psalm of David.
1 Blessed are those who care about weak people.
When they are in trouble, the Lord saves them.
2 The Lord guards them and keeps them alive.
They are counted among those who are blessed in the land.
The Lord won’t hand them over to the wishes of their enemies.
3 The Lord will take care of them when they are lying sick in bed.
He will make them well again.
4 I said, “Lord, have mercy on me.
Heal me, because I have sinned against you.”
5 My enemies are saying bad things about me.
They say, “When will he die and his name be forgotten?”
6 When one of them comes to see me,
he says things that aren’t true.
At the same time, he thinks up lies to tell against me.
Then he goes out and spreads those lies around.
7 All my enemies whisper to each other about me.
They want something terrible to happen to me.
8 They say, “He is sick and will die very soon.
He will never get up from his bed again.”
9 Even my close friend, someone I trusted, has failed me.
I even shared my bread with him.
10 But Lord, may you have mercy on me.
Make me well, so I can pay them back.
11 Then I will know that you are pleased with me,
because my enemies haven’t won the battle over me.
12 You will take good care of me because I’ve been honest.
You will let me be with you forever.
13 Give praise to the Lord, the God of Israel,
for ever and ever.
Amen and Amen.
Ya Mukulu wa Bayimbi. Zabbuli ya Dawudi.
1Alina omukisa asaasira omunaku;
Mukama amulokola ku lunaku olw’akabi.
2 Mukama anaamukuumanga anaawonyanga obulamu bwe,
era anaamuwanga omukisa mu nsi;
n’atamuwaayo eri okwegomba kw’abalabe be.
3 Mukama anaamujjanjabanga nga mulwadde;
n’amuwonya mu bulumi.
4 Nayogera nti, “Ayi Mukama onsaasire omponye; kubanga nnyonoonye mu maaso go.”
5 Abalabe bange boogeza obukyayi nti,
“Alifa ddi n’okwerabirwa ne yeerabirwa?”
6 Bwe bajja okundaba beefuula mikwano gyange;
naye munda yaabwe bankyawa era basanyuka okulaba nga ngalamidde awo nnumwa.
Bwe bansiibula bagenda beesekera nga bwe baduula.
7 Abalabe bange bonna abo bateesa mu kaama;
nga banjogerako ebitali birungi.
8 Boogera nti, “Endwadde emukutte mbi nnyo,
emukubye wansi tayinza kuwona.”
9 Era ne mukwano gwange gwe neesiganga
10 Naye ggwe, Ayi Mukama, onsaasire,
onzizeemu amaanyi ndyoke nneesasuze.
11 Mmanyi ng’onsanyukira,
kubanga omulabe wange tampangudde.
12 Onnywezezza mu bwesimbu bwange,
ne mbeera mu maaso go ennaku zonna.
13 Atenderezebwenga Mukama Katonda wa Isirayiri,
oyo eyabaawo okuva edda n’edda lyonna n’okutuusa emirembe gyonna.
Amiina era Amiina.
