Psalm 75

Psalm 75

For the director of music. A psalm of Asaph. A song to the tune of “Do Not Destroy.”

God, we praise you.
    We praise you because you are near to us.
    People talk about the wonderful things you have done.

You say, “I choose the appointed time to judge people.
    And I judge them fairly.
When the earth and all its people tremble,
    I keep everything from falling to pieces.
To the proud I say, ‘Don’t brag anymore.’
    To sinners I say, ‘Don’t show off your power.
Don’t show it off against me.
    Don’t talk back to me.’ ”

No one from east or west or north or south
    can judge themselves.
God is the one who judges.
    He says to one person, “You are guilty.”
    To another he says, “You are not guilty.”
In the hand of the Lord is a cup.
    It is full of wine mixed with spices.
    It is the wine of his anger.
He pours it out. All the evil people on earth
    drink it down to the very last drop.

I will speak about this forever.
    I will sing praise to the God of Jacob.
10 God says, “I will destroy the power of all sinful people.
    But I will make godly people more powerful.”

Zabbuli 75

Ya Mukulu wa Bayimbi. Ku ddoboozi, “Tozikiriza.” Zabbuli ya Asafu. Oluyimba.

1Tukwebaza, Ayi Katonda.
    Tukwebaza, kubanga Erinnya lyo liri kumpi.
    Abantu boogera ku bikolwa byo eby’ekyewuunyo.

Mukama Katonda oyogera nti, “Neerondera ekiseera kye neetegekera
    era nsala omusango gwa bwenkanya.
Kyokka newaakubadde ng’ensi eyuuguuma abantu ne beeraliikirira,
    naye nze nywezezza empagi zaayo.”
Nalabula ab’amalala bagaleke,
    n’ababi bakomye okuyimusa ejjembe lyabwe ng’ery’embogo.
Mukomye okuyimusa ejjembe lyammwe eri eggulu
    n’okwogera nga muduula.

Kubanga okugulumizibwa tekuva mu ddungu
    era n’obuyinza tebuva buvanjuba wadde obugwanjuba bw’ensi,
wabula biva eri Katonda;
    era ye y’agulumiza omu ate n’atoowaza omulala.
Mukama akutte mu mukono gwe ekikompe eky’obusungu bwe
    ekijjudde omwenge ogutabuddwamu ebirungo era kijjudde ejjovu;
akifuka, aboonoonyi bonna ku nsi
    ne bakinywa ne bakimaliramu ddala.

Naye nze nnaatendanga obulungi bwa Mukama;
    nnaatenderezanga Katonda wa Yakobo ennaku zonna.
10 Mukama ayogera nti, Ababi ndibamalamu amaanyi,
    naye abatuukirivu nnaabongeranga amaanyi.
