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.

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。
