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.

Endagaano Enkadde nʼEndagaano Empya

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.
