Psalm 21

Psalm 21[a]

For the director of music. A psalm of David.

The king rejoices in your strength, Lord.
    How great is his joy in the victories you give!

You have granted him his heart’s desire
    and have not withheld the request of his lips.[b]
You came to greet him with rich blessings
    and placed a crown of pure gold on his head.
He asked you for life, and you gave it to him –
    length of days, for ever and ever.
Through the victories you gave, his glory is great;
    you have bestowed on him splendour and majesty.
Surely you have granted him unending blessings
    and made him glad with the joy of your presence.
For the king trusts in the Lord;
    through the unfailing love of the Most High
    he will not be shaken.

Your hand will lay hold on all your enemies;
    your right hand will seize your foes.
When you appear for battle,
    you will burn them up as in a blazing furnace.
The Lord will swallow them up in his wrath,
    and his fire will consume them.
10 You will destroy their descendants from the earth,
    their posterity from mankind.
11 Though they plot evil against you
    and devise wicked schemes, they cannot succeed.
12 You will make them turn their backs
    when you aim at them with drawn bow.

13 Be exalted in your strength, Lord;
    we will sing and praise your might.

Zabbuli 21

Ya Mukulu wa Bayimbi. Zabbuli ya Dawudi.

1Ayi Mukama, kabaka ajaguliza mu maanyi go.
    Obuwanguzi bw’omuwadde nga bumuleetedde essanyu lingi!

Omuwadde omutima gwe bye gwetaaga,
    era buli ky’asabye n’akamwa ke tokimummye.
Ddala ddala wamwaniriza n’emikisa gyo egijjudde ebirungi,
    n’omutikkira engule eya zaabu omuka ennyo ku mutwe gwe.
Yakusaba obulamu, era n’obumuwa,
    ennaku ennyingi ez’emirembe n’emirembe.
Obuwanguzi bwe wamuwa bumuleetedde ekitiibwa kinene.
    Omuwadde ekitiibwa n’oyatiikirira.
Ddala omuwadde emikisa gyo egy’olubeerera,
    n’omujjuza essanyu ng’oli naye buli kiseera.
Kubanga kabaka yeesiga Mukama,
    era olw’okwagala okutaggwaawo okw’oyo Ali Waggulu Ennyo,
    kabaka tagenda kunyeenyezebwa.

Omukono gwo guliwamba abalabe bo bonna;
    omukono gwo ogwa ddyo gulikwata abo abakukyawa.
Bw’olirabika, Ayi Mukama,
    olibasiriiza n’omuliro ng’ogw’omu kyoto ekyengeredde.
Mukama, ng’ajjudde obusungu, alibamira bonna,
    era alibamalirawo ddala.
10 Olizikiriza ezzadde lyabwe ku nsi,
    n’abaana baabwe bonna n’obamalawo mu baana b’abantu.
11 Newaakubadde nga bakusalira enkwe,
    ne bateekateeka ebikolwa ebibi, kyokka tewali kye basobola kutuukiriza.
12 Balikyuka ne bakudduka bwe baliraba
    ng’obaleezeemu omutego gwo ogw’obusaale.

13 Ogulumizibwenga, Ayi Mukama, mu maanyi go.
    Tunaayimbanga nga tutendereza obuyinza bwo.
