King James Version

Psalm 124

1If it had not been the Lord who was on our side, now may Israel say;

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

Then they had swallowed us up quick, when their wrath was kindled against us:

Then the waters had overwhelmed us, the stream had gone over our soul:

Then the proud waters had gone over our soul.

Blessed be the Lord, who hath not given us as a prey to their teeth.

Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers: the snare is broken, and we are escaped.

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

诗篇 124

上帝保护祂的子民

大卫上圣殿朝圣之诗。

1以色列人要说:
若不是耶和华帮助我们,
若不是耶和华帮助我们,
仇敌起来攻击我们、
向我们发怒的时候,
我们早已被他们生吞,
被狂涛淹没,被洪流卷走,
被怒海吞噬。
耶和华当受称颂!
祂没有让我们像猎物一样被敌人撕咬。
我们像鸟一样逃出了猎人的网罗。
网罗破裂,我们逃了出去。
我们的帮助来自创造天地的耶和华。
