Psalm 7

Psalm 7

A psalm[a] of David, which he sang to the Lord concerning Cush of the tribe of Benjamin.

I come to you for protection, O Lord my God.
    Save me from my persecutors—rescue me!
If you don’t, they will maul me like a lion,
    tearing me to pieces with no one to rescue me.
O Lord my God, if I have done wrong
    or am guilty of injustice,
if I have betrayed a friend
    or plundered my enemy without cause,
then let my enemies capture me.
    Let them trample me into the ground
    and drag my honor in the dust. Interlude

Arise, O Lord, in anger!
    Stand up against the fury of my enemies!
    Wake up, my God, and bring justice!
Gather the nations before you.
    Rule over them from on high.
    The Lord judges the nations.
Declare me righteous, O Lord,
    for I am innocent, O Most High!
End the evil of those who are wicked,
    and defend the righteous.
For you look deep within the mind and heart,
    O righteous God.

10 God is my shield,
    saving those whose hearts are true and right.
11 God is an honest judge.
    He is angry with the wicked every day.

12 If a person does not repent,
    God[b] will sharpen his sword;
    he will bend and string his bow.
13 He will prepare his deadly weapons
    and shoot his flaming arrows.

14 The wicked conceive evil;
    they are pregnant with trouble
    and give birth to lies.
15 They dig a deep pit to trap others,
    then fall into it themselves.
16 The trouble they make for others backfires on them.
    The violence they plan falls on their own heads.

17 I will thank the Lord because he is just;
    I will sing praise to the name of the Lord Most High.

Zabbuli 7

Zabbuli ya Dawudi gye yayimbira Mukama ng’efa ku Kuusi Omubenyamini.

1Ayi Mukama, Katonda wange, neesiga ggwe:
    ngobaako bonna abangigganya era omponye,
si kulwa nga bantagulataagula ng’empologoma
    ne bankutulakutula obufiififi ne watabaawo amponya.

Ayi Mukama, Katonda wange, obanga nkoze kino,
    era ng’engalo zange ziriko omusango,
obanga waliwo andaze ebirungi nze ne si muyisa bulungi,
    oba nzibye omulabe wange awatali nsonga:
Kale, abalabe bange baleke bangoberere bankwate,
    bankube wansi banninnyirire,
    banzitire mu nfuufu.

Golokoka, Ayi Mukama, mu busungu bwo oziyize abalabe bange abajjudde obukambwe.
    Golokoka, Ayi Katonda wange,
    onnyambe ggwe asala omusango mu bwenkanya.
Kuŋŋaanya bannaggwanga bonna okukwetooloola;
    obafuge ng’oli waggulu ennyo.
    Ggwe, Ayi Mukama, Ali Waggulu Ennyo,
    asalira amawanga gonna emisango,
osale omusango gwange Ayi Mukama Ali Waggulu Ennyo ng’obutuukirivu bwange bwe buli,
    era n’amazima agali mu nze bwe gali.
Ayi Katonda omutukuvu,
    akebera emitima n’emmeeme;
okomye ebikolwa by’abakola ebibi:
    era onyweze abatuukirivu.

10 Katonda Ali Waggulu Ennyo ye ngabo yange;
    alokola abo abalina omutima omulongoofu.
11 Katonda mulamuzi wa mazima;
    era alaga ekiruyi kye buli lunaku.
12 Mukama awagala ekitala kye
    n’aleega omutego gwe
    ogw’obusaale.
13 Era ategese ebyokulwanyisa ebissi;
    era akozesa obusaale obw’omuliro.

14 Omuntu ajjudde ebibi afuna emitawaana,
    n’azaala obulimba.
15 Asima ekinnya, n’akiwanvuya nnyo;
    ate n’akigwamu ye kye yasimye.
16 Emitawaana gye gimwebunguludde;
    n’obukambwe bwe bumuddire.

17 Nneebazanga Mukama olw’obutuukirivu bwe;
    nnaayimbanga nga ntendereza erinnya lya Mukama Ali Waggulu Ennyo.
