New International Reader's Version

Psalm 124

Psalm 124

A song for those who go up to Jerusalem to worship the Lord. A psalm of David.

Here is what Israel should say.
    Suppose the Lord had not been on our side.
Suppose the Lord had not been on our side
    when our enemies attacked us.
Suppose he had not been on our side
    when their burning anger blazed out against us.
    Then they would have swallowed us alive.
They would have been like a flood that drowned us.
    They would have swept over us like a rushing river.
They would have washed us away
    like a swollen stream.

Give praise to the Lord.
    He has not let our enemies chew us up.
We have escaped like a bird
    from a hunter’s trap.
The trap has been broken,
    and we have escaped.
Our help comes from the Lord.
    He is the Maker of 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。
