The Book of Psalms

  Psalm 123  

123:1 If it had not been that the Lord was with us, let Israel now say:

123:1 Nisi quia Dominus erat in nobis dicat nunc Israhel

123:2 If it had not been that the Lord was with us, When men rose up against us

123:2 Nisi quia Dominus erat in nobis cum exsurgerent in nos homines

123:3 perhaps they had swallowed us up alive. When their fury was enkindled against us,

123:3 Forte vivos degluttissent nos cum irasceretur furor eorum in nos

123:4 perhaps the waters had swallowed us up.

123:4 Forsitan aqua absorbuisset nos

123:5 Our soul hath passed through a torrent: perhaps our soul had passed through a water insupportable.

123:5 Torrentem pertransivit anima nostra forsitan pertransisset anima nostra aquam intolerabilem

123:6 Blessed be the Lord, who hath not given us to be a prey to their teeth.

123:6 Benedictus Dominus qui non dedit nos in captionem dentibus eorum

123:7 Our soul hath been delivered as a sparrow out of the snare of the followers. The snare is broken, and we are delivered.

123:7 Anima nostra sicut passer erepta est de laqueo venantium laqueus contritus est et nos liberati sumus

123:8 Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth.

123:8 Adiutorium nostrum in nomine Domini qui fecit caelum et terram
