Amplified Bible

Psalm 124

Praise for Rescue from Enemies.

A Song of [a]Ascents. Of David.

1“If it had not been the Lord who was on our side,”
Let Israel now say,

“If it had not been the Lord who was on our side
When men rose up against us,

Then they would have [quickly] swallowed us alive,
When their wrath was kindled against us;

Then the waters would have engulfed us,
The torrent would have swept over our soul;

Then the [b]raging waters would have swept over our soul.”


Blessed be the Lord,
Who has not given us as prey to be torn by their teeth.

We have escaped like a bird from the snare of the fowlers;
The trap is broken and we have escaped.

Our help is in the name of the Lord,
Who made heaven and earth.

Salme 124

Herren hjælper sit folk

1En valfartssang af David.

„Hvad hvis Herren ikke havde hjulpet os?
    Lad hele Israel svare.”

Hvis Herren ikke havde hjulpet os,
    da fjenderne gik til angreb,
havde de slugt os med hud og hår,
    for de nærede et bundløst had.
De ville have skyllet os fuldstændigt væk,
    som en flodbølge kom de imod os.
Det brusende vand
    ville have revet os bort fra de levendes land.
Men lovet være Herren,
    han lod dem ikke udslette os.
Vi var fanget som en fugl i en fælde,
    men Herren slap os fri.
Han åbnede fælden for os
    og reddede os fra den visse død.
Det var Herren, der kom os til hjælp,
    himlens og jordens Skaber.
