Psalms 124

Псалом 124

1Песнь восхождения.

Те, кто надеется на Господа, – как гора Сион:

не поколеблются, пребудут вовеки.

2Как горы окружают Иерусалим,

так Господь окружает Свой народ

отныне и вовеки.

3Жезл нечестивых не останется

над землей праведных,

чтобы праведные не протянули

свои руки к беззаконию.

4Будь добр, Господи, к добрым

и к правым в сердцах своих.

5Но тех, кто следует кривыми путями,

да отвергнет Господь вместе со злодеями.

Мир Израилю!

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.
