Psalm 124

Psalm 124

A song of ascents. Of David.

If the Lord had not been on our side—
    let Israel say—
if the Lord had not been on our side
    when people attacked us,
they would have swallowed us alive
    when their anger flared against us;
the flood would have engulfed us,
    the torrent would have swept over us,
the raging waters
    would have swept us away.

Praise be to the Lord,
    who has not let us be torn by their teeth.
We have escaped like a bird
    from the fowler’s snare;
the snare has been broken,
    and we have escaped.
Our help is in the name of the Lord,
    the Maker of 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.
