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.

New Russian Translation

Psalms 124

Псалом 124

1Песнь восхождения.

Те, кто надеется на Господа, – как гора Сион:

не поколеблются, пребудут вовеки.

2Как горы окружают Иерусалим,

так Господь окружает Свой народ

отныне и вовеки.

3Жезл нечестивых не останется

над землей праведных,

чтобы праведные не протянули

свои руки к беззаконию.

4Будь добр, Господи, к добрым

и к правым в сердцах своих.

5Но тех, кто следует кривыми путями,

да отвергнет Господь вместе со злодеями.

Мир Израилю!
