eddoboozi ery’okukaaba liriwulikika ku Mulyango ogw’Ebyennyanja,

okukaaba okuva ku luuyi olwokubiri,

n’okubwatuka okunene okuva ku nsozi.

111:11 a Yak 5:1 b Kos 9:6Mwekaabireko, mmwe abali mu matwale g’akatale;

abasuubuzi bammwe bonna zibasanze,

n’abo abeebinika ffeeza balizikirizibwa.

abali ng’omwenge ogutanasengejjebwa,

abalowooza nti Mukama

talibaako ne ky’akolawo.

131:13 a Yer 15:13 b Ma 28:30, 39; Am 5:11; Mi 6:15Obugagga bwabwe bulinyagibwa,

n’ennyumba zaabwe zimenyebwemenyebwe.

Ne bwe balizimba ennyumba

tebalizituulamu,

era balisimba ennimiro ez’emizabbibu nazo

tebalinywa wayini wamu.

Olunaku lwa Mukama Olukulu

141:14 a nny 7; Yo 1:15 b Ez 7:7Olunaku lwa Mukama olukulu luli kumpi;

ddala lunaatera okutuuka.

Wuliriza! Omulwanyi alikaabira eyo ng’aliko obuyinike bungi,

n’okukaaba ku lunaku lwa Mukama kujja kuba kungi nnyo.

151:15 Is 22:5; Yo 2:2Olunaku olwo lunaku lwa busungu,

lunaku lwa buyinike n’okulaba ennaku,

lunaku lwa mutawaana n’okuzikirira,

olunaku olw’ekikome n’ekizikiza,

olunaku lw’ebire n’ekizikiza ekikutte ennyo;

161:16 a Yer 4:19 b Is 2:15olunaku olw’okufuuwa ekkondeere n’okulangirira olutalo

ku bibuga ebiriko ebigo

n’eri eminaala emigulumivu.

171:17 a Is 59:10 b Zab 79:3 c Yer 9:22Ndireeta, obuyinike ku bantu,

batambule ng’abazibe b’amaaso,

kubanga bakoze ebibi mu maaso ga Mukama,

omusaayi gwabwe guliyiyibwa ng’enfuufu,

n’ebyenda byabwe bivundire kungulu.

181:18 a Ez 7:19 b nny 2-3; Zef 3:8 c Lub 6:7Effeeza yaabwe ne zaabu yaabwe

tebiriyinza kubataasa

ku lunaku olw’obusungu bwa Mukama.

Ensi yonna erizikirizibwa

omuliro gw’obuggya bwe,

era alimalirawo ddala

abo bonna abali mu nsi.
