Psalm 141

Psalm 141

A psalm of David.

I call to you, Lord, come quickly to me;
    hear me when I call to you.
May my prayer be set before you like incense;
    may the lifting up of my hands be like the evening sacrifice.

Set a guard over my mouth, Lord;
    keep watch over the door of my lips.
Do not let my heart be drawn to what is evil
    so that I take part in wicked deeds
along with those who are evildoers;
    do not let me eat their delicacies.

Let a righteous man strike me—that is a kindness;
    let him rebuke me—that is oil on my head.
My head will not refuse it,
    for my prayer will still be against the deeds of evildoers.

Their rulers will be thrown down from the cliffs,
    and the wicked will learn that my words were well spoken.
They will say, “As one plows and breaks up the earth,
    so our bones have been scattered at the mouth of the grave.”

But my eyes are fixed on you, Sovereign Lord;
    in you I take refuge—do not give me over to death.
Keep me safe from the traps set by evildoers,
    from the snares they have laid for me.
10 Let the wicked fall into their own nets,
    while I pass by in safety.

Zabbuli 141

Zabbuli Ya Dawudi.

1Ayi Mukama nkukaabira; oyanguwe okujja gye ndi!
    Owulire eddoboozi lyange, nga nkukoowoola.
Okusaba kwange kubeere ng’ebyakaloosa mu maaso go,
    n’okugolola emikono gyange gy’oli kubeere nga ssaddaaka ey’akawungeezi.

Onkuume, Ayi Mukama, nneme okwasamya akamwa kange,
    era bwe njogera onkomeko.
Okyuse omutima gwange guleme kugoberera kibi,
    n’okwemalira mu bikolwa ebibi;
nneme okwetaba n’abantu abakola ebitali bya butuukirivu,
    wadde okulya ku mmere yaabwe.

Leka omuntu omutuukirivu ankube, kubanga anaaba ankwatiddwa ekisa;
    muleke annenye, ekyo kinaaba ng’amafuta amalungi agafukiddwa ku mutwe gwange;
    sijja kugagaana.
Naye nnaasabanga bulijjo nga sikkiriziganya na babi wadde n’ebikolwa byabwe.
    Abakola ebibi bwe baliweebwayo eri ab’okubasalira omusango,
    olwo ne balyoka bayiga nti ebigambo byange bya mazima.
Balyogera nti, “Ng’omuntu bw’akabala n’akuba amavuunike,
    n’amagumba gaffe bwe galisaasaanyizibwa bwe gatyo mu kamwa k’emagombe.”

Naye nze amaaso ngatadde ku ggwe, Ayi Mukama Katonda;
    mu ggwe mwe neekwese, tondeka nga sirina anambeera!
Nkuuma omponye omutego gwe banteze,
    n’ebitimba by’abo abakola ebitali bya butuukirivu.
10 Ebitimba bye banteze abakola ebibi abo bonna, baleke babigwemu, kyokka nze mpone.
