Zabbuli 44 Endagaano Enkadde nʼEndagaano Empya (LCB)

Ya mukulu wa bayimbi. Zabbuli ya Batabani ba Koola.

44 Ayi Katonda, twawulira n’amatu gaffe,
    bajjajjaffe baatubuulira,
ebyo bye wakola mu biro byabwe,
    mu nnaku ez’edda ezaayita.
Nga bwe wagoba amawanga mu nsi
    n’ogiwa bajjajjaffe,
wasaanyaawo amawanga
    n’okulaakulanya bajjajjaffe.
Ekitala kyabwe si kye kyabaleetera okuwangula ensi,
    n’omukono gwabwe si gwe gwabalokola;
wabula baawangula n’omukono gwo ogwa ddyo
    awamu n’obulungi bwo, kubanga wabaagala.

Ggwe oli Kabaka wange, era Katonda wange;
    awa Yakobo obuwanguzi.
Ku lulwo tunaawangulanga abalabe baffe;
    ku lw’erinnya lyo tunaalinnyiriranga abalabe baffe.
Ddala ddala omutego gwange ogw’obusaale si gwe neesiga,
    n’ekitala kyange si kye kimpa obuwanguzi.
Wabula ggwe otulokola mu balabe baffe,
    n’oswaza abo abatuyigganya.
Twenyumiririza mu Katonda olunaku lwonna.
    Era tunaatenderezanga erinnya lyo emirembe gyonna.

Naye kaakano otusudde ne tuswala;
    era tokyatabaala na magye gaffe.
10 Watuzza emabega okuva mu bifo mwe twali ng’abalabe baffe balaba,
    abatuyigganya ne batunyaga.
11 Watuwaayo okuliibwa ng’endiga;
    n’otusaasaanya mu mawanga.
12 Watunda abantu bo omuwendo mutono nnyo,
    n’otobaako ky’oganyulwa.

13 Watufuula ekivume eri baliraanwa baffe,
    ekinyoomebwa era ekisekererwa abo abatwetoolodde.
14 Otufudde ekinyoomebwa mu mawanga gonna;
    era abantu banyeenya emitwe gyabwe.
15 Nswazibwa obudde okuziba,
    amaaso gange ne gajjula ensonyi,
16 olw’abo abangigganya, abanvuma nga tebandabamu ka buntu,
    olw’omulabe amaliridde okuwoolera eggwanga.

17 Ebyo byonna bitutuseeko,
    newaakubadde nga tetukwerabidde,
    wadde obutagondera ndagaano yo.
18 Omutima gwaffe tegukuvuddeeko,
    so tetugaanyi kutambulira mu kkubo lyo.
19 Naye ggwe otubonerezza n’otulekera emisege,
    n’otuleka mu kizikiza ekikutte.

20 Ddala singa twerabira erinnya lya Katonda waffe,
    ne tusinza katonda omulala,
21 ekyo Katonda waffe teyandikizudde?
    Kubanga ye amanyi n’ebikisibwa mu mutima.
22 Katonda waffe, tetukuvuddeeko, kubanga ku lulwo tuttibwa obudde okuziba,
    era tuli ng’endiga ez’okusalibwa.

23 Golokoka Ayi Mukama, lwaki weebase?
    Zuukuka! Totusuula Ayi Mukama!
24 Lwaki otwekwese?
    Lwaki tofaayo ku kulumwa kwaffe n’okujoogebwa?

25 Ddala ddala tusuuliddwa mu nfuufu;
    tuli ku ttaka.
26 Golokoka otuyambe;
    tulokole olw’okwagala kwo okutaggwaawo.

Psalm 44 New International Version (NIV)

Psalm 44[a]

For the director of music. Of the Sons of Korah. A maskil.[b]

We have heard it with our ears, O God;
    our ancestors have told us
what you did in their days,
    in days long ago.
With your hand you drove out the nations
    and planted our ancestors;
you crushed the peoples
    and made our ancestors flourish.
It was not by their sword that they won the land,
    nor did their arm bring them victory;
it was your right hand, your arm,
    and the light of your face, for you loved them.

You are my King and my God,
    who decrees[c] victories for Jacob.
Through you we push back our enemies;
    through your name we trample our foes.
I put no trust in my bow,
    my sword does not bring me victory;
but you give us victory over our enemies,
    you put our adversaries to shame.
In God we make our boast all day long,
    and we will praise your name forever.[d]

But now you have rejected and humbled us;
    you no longer go out with our armies.
10 You made us retreat before the enemy,
    and our adversaries have plundered us.
11 You gave us up to be devoured like sheep
    and have scattered us among the nations.
12 You sold your people for a pittance,
    gaining nothing from their sale.

13 You have made us a reproach to our neighbors,
    the scorn and derision of those around us.
14 You have made us a byword among the nations;
    the peoples shake their heads at us.
15 I live in disgrace all day long,
    and my face is covered with shame
16 at the taunts of those who reproach and revile me,
    because of the enemy, who is bent on revenge.

17 All this came upon us,
    though we had not forgotten you;
    we had not been false to your covenant.
18 Our hearts had not turned back;
    our feet had not strayed from your path.
19 But you crushed us and made us a haunt for jackals;
    you covered us over with deep darkness.

20 If we had forgotten the name of our God
    or spread out our hands to a foreign god,
21 would not God have discovered it,
    since he knows the secrets of the heart?
22 Yet for your sake we face death all day long;
    we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.

23 Awake, Lord! Why do you sleep?
    Rouse yourself! Do not reject us forever.
24 Why do you hide your face
    and forget our misery and oppression?

25 We are brought down to the dust;
    our bodies cling to the ground.
26 Rise up and help us;
    rescue us because of your unfailing love.
