Psalm 133 [134] is one of the shortest Psalms in the Bible. Here are three versions of this Psalm, the first newly translated from the Ancient Greek text; the second and third translated from the Medieval Masoretic Hebrew. Of course it's not possible to judge how faithful each version is without reference to the original texts on which the translations are based. However, you can take my word for it that all texts are faithful to their sources, although some readers may think that Dr Moffatt's use of the word, the Eternal (instead of the Lord or Yahweh) somewhat odd. However, Dr Moffat offers a number of convincing reasons for translating the Hebrew in this manner.

 

PSALM 133 [134]

Translation 1, from Bible Wisdom: PSALMS of Praise and Power newly translated from the Greek Old Testament:

BLESSINGS FROM ZION

Praise the name of the Lord, all you, His servants

who minister in the temple and its courts day and night!

Come, stretch out your hands in prayer towards His sanctuary

and praise the Lord God!

May He, the Lord God, who made heaven and earth,

bless you most abundantly from Zion!

 

Translation 2, from the King James Bible:

PSALM 134

A SONG OF DEGREES

Behold, bless ye the Lord, all ye servants of the Lord, which by night stand in the house of the Lord. 2 Lift up your hands in the sanctuary and bless the Lord. 3 The Lord that made heaven and earth bless thee out of Zi'-on.

 

Translation 3, from The Moffatt Bible:

A PILGRIM SONG

134

1 Come, all ye servants of the Eternal, bless the Eternal,

ye who stand by night in the Eternal's house,

2 lift hands of prayer to the shrine, bless the Eternal!

 

3 "And may the Eternal, who made heaven and earth,

bless you from Sion!"
