Psalm 138

Psalm 138

A psalm of David.

I give you thanks, O Lord, with all my heart;
    I will sing your praises before the gods.
I bow before your holy Temple as I worship.
    I praise your name for your unfailing love and faithfulness;
for your promises are backed
    by all the honor of your name.
As soon as I pray, you answer me;
    you encourage me by giving me strength.

Every king in all the earth will thank you, Lord,
    for all of them will hear your words.
Yes, they will sing about the Lord’s ways,
    for the glory of the Lord is very great.
Though the Lord is great, he cares for the humble,
    but he keeps his distance from the proud.

Though I am surrounded by troubles,
    you will protect me from the anger of my enemies.
You reach out your hand,
    and the power of your right hand saves me.
The Lord will work out his plans for my life—
    for your faithful love, O Lord, endures forever.
    Don’t abandon me, for you made me.

Zabbuli 138

Zabbuli Ya Dawudi.

1Nnaakutenderezanga Ayi Mukama, n’omutima gwange gwonna;
    ne mu maaso ga bakatonda abalala nnaayimbanga okukutendereza.
Nvuunama nga njolekedde Yeekaalu yo Entukuvu,
    ne ntendereza erinnya lyo
    olw’okwagala kwo n’olw’obwesigwa bwo;
kubanga wagulumiza ekigambo kyo
    n’erinnya lyo okusinga ebintu byonna.
Olunaku lwe nakukoowoolerako wannyanukula;
    n’onnyongeramu amaanyi mu mwoyo gwange.

Bakabaka bonna ab’omu nsi banaakutenderezanga, Ayi Mukama,
    nga bawulidde ebigambo ebiva mu kamwa ko.
Banaatenderezanga ebikolwa byo Ayi Mukama;
    kubanga ekitiibwa kya Mukama kinene.

Newaakubadde nga Mukama asukkulumye,
    naye afaayo eri abo abeetoowaza; naye abeegulumiza ababeera wala.
Newaakubadde nga neetooloddwa ebizibu,
    naye ggwe okuuma obulamu bwange;
ogolola omukono gwo eri abalabe bange abakambwe,
    era omukono gwo ogwa ddyo ne gumponya.
Mukama alituukiriza ebyo by’anteekeddeteekedde;
    kubanga okwagala kwo, Ayi Mukama, kubeerera emirembe gyonna.
    Tolekulira ebyo bye watonda.
