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.

O Livro

Salmos 124

1Se o Senhor não tivesse estado ao nosso lado, —
e Israel deve confessar isto!—
sim, se o Senhor não tivesse estado connosco,
quando os nossos adversários se lançaram contra nós,
ter-nos-iam engolido vivos
    quando o seu ódio desabou sobre nós.
4/5 Teríamos ficado submersos
    sob essa avalanche,
    sob esse dilúvio em cima de nós.

Senhor, aceita o nosso reconhecimento
    por não teres permitido que nos devorassem.
A nossa alma escapou-se-lhes como um pássaro
    que foge de uma armadilha;
a armadilha partiu-se e ficámos livres!

É bem verdade que o nosso socorro está na força do nome do Senhor
    que fez o céu e a Terra.
