圣咏集 Psalms
1登圣殿歌,达味作。若不是上主保佑我们唯愿以色列子民再说:1Had not the Lord been on our side - let Israel say -
2若不是上主保佑我们,当世人起来攻击我们,2had not the Lord been on our side, when people rose up against us,
3并向我们发泄怒火时,必会活活将我们吞食。3then they would have swallowed us alive. such was their anger against us.
4就像淹没我们的水祸,流过我们颈项的洪波。4A bit more and the flood would have engulfed us, the torrent would have swept over us,
5又像汹涌澎湃的狂浪,早已将我们淹没灭亡。5the raging waters would have swept us away.
6赞美上主,他没有将我们抛出,使我们做成他爪牙的猎物;6Blessed be the Lord, who did not let us be devoured.
7我们像挣脱猎人罗网的小鸟,罗网被扯破了,我们自然逃掉。7Like a bird our soul escaped from the snare of the fowler; the snare was broken and we were freed.
8我们的救助是仰赖上主的名,上天和下地都是由他所造成。8Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth.
