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.

Zabbuli 124

Oluyimba nga balinnya amadaala. Lwa Dawudi.

1Isirayiri agamba nti,
    singa Katonda teyali ku ludda lwaffe,
singa Katonda teyali ku ludda lwaffe
    abalabe baffe bwe baatulumba,
banditusaanyizzaawo mu kaseera buseera,
    obusungu bwabwe bwe bwatubuubuukirako.
Amataba g’obusungu bwabwe ganditusaanyizzaawo,
    ne mukoka n’atukulukutirako;
amazzi ag’obusungu bwabwe agayira
    ganditukuluggusizza.

Mukama atenderezebwe
    atatugabuddeeyo ne tutaagulwataagulwa amannyo gaabwe.
Tuwonye ng’ekinyonyi bwe kiva
    ku mutego gw’abatezi;
omutego gukutuse,
    naffe tuwonye!
Okubeerwa kwaffe kuli mu linnya lya Mukama,
    eyakola eggulu n’ensi.
