Psalm 50

Psalm 50

A psalm of Asaph.

The Mighty One, God, the Lord,
    speaks and summons the earth
    from the rising of the sun to where it sets.
From Zion, perfect in beauty,
    God shines forth.
Our God comes
    and will not be silent;
a fire devours before him,
    and around him a tempest rages.
He summons the heavens above,
    and the earth, that he may judge his people:
“Gather to me this consecrated people,
    who made a covenant with me by sacrifice.”
And the heavens proclaim his righteousness,
    for he is a God of justice.[a][b]

“Listen, my people, and I will speak;
    I will testify against you, Israel:
    I am God, your God.
I bring no charges against you concerning your sacrifices
    or concerning your burnt offerings, which are ever before me.
I have no need of a bull from your stall
    or of goats from your pens,
10 for every animal of the forest is mine,
    and the cattle on a thousand hills.
11 I know every bird in the mountains,
    and the insects in the fields are mine.
12 If I were hungry I would not tell you,
    for the world is mine, and all that is in it.
13 Do I eat the flesh of bulls
    or drink the blood of goats?

14 “Sacrifice thank offerings to God,
    fulfill your vows to the Most High,
15 and call on me in the day of trouble;
    I will deliver you, and you will honor me.”

16 But to the wicked person, God says:

“What right have you to recite my laws
    or take my covenant on your lips?
17 You hate my instruction
    and cast my words behind you.
18 When you see a thief, you join with him;
    you throw in your lot with adulterers.
19 You use your mouth for evil
    and harness your tongue to deceit.
20 You sit and testify against your brother
    and slander your own mother’s son.
21 When you did these things and I kept silent,
    you thought I was exactly[c] like you.
But I now arraign you
    and set my accusations before you.

22 “Consider this, you who forget God,
    or I will tear you to pieces, with no one to rescue you:
23 Those who sacrifice thank offerings honor me,
    and to the blameless[d] I will show my salvation.”

Zabbuli 50

Zabbuli ya Asafu.

1Oyo Owaamaanyi, Mukama Katonda,
    akoowoola ensi
    okuva enjuba gy’eva okutuuka gy’egwa.
Katonda ayakaayakana
    ng’ava mu Sayuuni n’obulungi bw’ekitiibwa kye ekituukiridde.
Katonda waffe ajja, naye tajja kasirise,
    omuliro ogusaanyaawo buli kintu gwe gumukulembera,
    n’omuyaga ogw’amaanyi ne gumwetooloola.
Akoowoola abali mu ggulu ne ku nsi,
    azze okusalira abantu be omusango.
Agamba nti, “Munkuŋŋaanyize abantu bange abaayawulibwa,
    abaakola nange endagaano nga bawaayo ssaddaaka.”
Eggulu litegeeza obutuukirivu bwa Katonda
    kubanga Katonda yennyini ye mulamuzi.

“Muwulirize, mmwe abantu bange, nange nnaayogera.
    Ggwe Isirayiri bino bye nkuvunaana:
    Nze Katonda, Katonda wo.
Sikunenya lwa ssaddaaka zo,
    oba ebiweebwayo ebyokebwa by’ossa mu maaso gange bulijjo.
Sikyakkiriza nte nnume n’emu evudde mu kiralo kyo,
    wadde embuzi ennume ezivudde mu bisibo byo.
10 Kubanga buli nsolo ey’omu kibira yange,
    awamu n’ente eziri ku nsozi olukumi.
11 Ennyonyi zonna ez’oku nsozi nzimanyi,
    n’ebiramu byonna eby’omu nsiko byange.
12 Singa nnumwa enjala sandikubuulidde:
    kubanga ensi n’ebigirimu byonna byange.
13 Ndya ennyama y’ente ennume,
    wadde okunywa omusaayi gw’embuzi?

14 “Owangayo ssaddaaka ey’okwebaza eri Katonda;
    era otuukirizanga obweyamo bwo eri oyo Ali Waggulu Ennyo.
15 Bw’obanga mu buzibu,
    nnaakuwonyanga, naawe onongulumizanga.”

16 Naye omubi Katonda amugamba nti,

“Lekeraawo okwatulanga amateeka gange,
    n’endagaano yange togyogerangako.
17 Kubanga okyawa okuluŋŋamizibwa,
    n’ebigambo byange tobissaako mwoyo.
18 Bw’olaba omubbi, ng’omukwana;
    era weetaba n’abenzi.
19 Okolima era olimba;
    olulimi lwo lwogera ebitali bya butuukirivu.
20 Muganda wo omwogerako bibi byereere buli kiseera,
    era owayiriza omwana wa nnyoko yennyini.
21 Ebyo byonna obikoze, ne nsirika,
    n’olowooza nti twenkanankana.
Naye kaakano ka nkunenye,
    ebisobyo byonna mbikulage.

22 “Ggwe eyeerabira Katonda, ebyo bisseeko omwoyo,
    nneme kukuyuzaayuza nga tewali na wa kukuwonya.
23 Oyo awaayo ssaddaaka ey’okwebaza angulumiza,
    era ateekateeka ekkubo
    ndyoke mulage obulokozi bwa Katonda.”
