Psalm 6

Psalm 6

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

Lord, don’t correct me when you are angry.
    Don’t punish me when you are very angry.
Lord, have mercy on me. I’m so weak.
    Lord, heal me. My body is full of pain.
My soul is very troubled.
    Lord, how long will it be until you save me?

Lord, turn to me and help me.
    Save me. Your love never fails.
Dead people can’t call out your name.
    How can they praise you when they are in the grave?

My groaning has worn me out.
    All night long my tears flood my bed.
    My bed is wet because of my crying.
I’m so sad I can’t see very well.
    My eyesight gets worse because of all my enemies.

Get away from me, all you who do evil.
    The Lord has heard my weeping.
The Lord has heard my cry for his mercy.
    The Lord accepts my prayer.
10 All my enemies will be covered with shame and trouble.
    They will turn back in shame. It will happen suddenly.

Zabbuli 6

Eri Omukulu wa Bayimbi. Eyimbibwa n’ebivuga eby’enkoba. Zabbuli ya Dawudi.

1Ayi Mukama, tonnenya ng’ojjudde obusungu;
    so tombonereza mu kiruyi kyo.
Onsaasire, Ayi Mukama, kubanga ndi munafu.
    Omponye, Ayi Mukama, kubanga amagumba gange gali mu bulumi.
Emmeeme yange ejjudde ennaku.
    Olirindirira kutuusa ddi olyoke onnyambe?

Onkyukire, Ayi Mukama, olokole omwoyo gwange;
    omponye okufa olw’okwagala kwo okungi.
Kubanga tewali ayinza kukujjukira ng’amaze okufa.
    Ani alikutendereza ng’asinziira emagombe?

Mpweddemu amaanyi olw’okusinda.

Buli kiro obuliri bwange bujjula amaziga gange
    n’omutto ne gutoba.
Amaaso gange ganafuye olw’okunyolwa,
    tegakyalaba bulungi olw’abalabe bange.

Muve we ndi mmwe mwenna abakola ebibi;
    kubanga Mukama awulidde okukaaba kwange.
Mukama awulidde okwegayirira kwange,
    n’okusaba kwange akukkirizza.
10 Abalabe bange bonna baliswazibwa era balitya nnyo;
    bazzibwe emabega nga bajjudde obuswavu mangu ago.
