Psalm 124

A Pilgrim Song of David

11-5 If God hadn’t been for us
    —all together now, Israel, sing out!—
If God hadn’t been for us
    when everyone went against us,
We would have been swallowed alive
    by their violent anger,
Swept away by the flood of rage,
    drowned in the torrent;
We would have lost our lives
    in the wild, raging water.

Oh, blessed be God!
    He didn’t go off and leave us.
He didn’t abandon us defenseless,
    helpless as a rabbit in a pack of snarling dogs.

We’ve flown free from their fangs,
    free of their traps, free as a bird.
Their grip is broken;
    we’re free as a bird in flight.

God’s strong name is our help,
    the same God 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.
