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.

詩篇 124

上帝保護祂的子民

大衛上聖殿朝聖之詩。

1以色列人要說:
若不是耶和華幫助我們,
若不是耶和華幫助我們,
仇敵起來攻擊我們、
向我們發怒的時候,
我們早已被他們生吞,
被狂濤淹沒,被洪流捲走,
被怒海吞噬。
耶和華當受稱頌!
祂沒有讓我們像獵物一樣被敵人撕咬。
我們像鳥一樣逃出了獵人的網羅。
網羅破裂,我們逃了出去。
我們的幫助來自創造天地的耶和華。
