Psalms 124:1

If it had not been the LORD who was on our side, let Israel now say,

Psalms 124:2

if it had not been the LORD who was on our side, when men rose up against us;

then they would have swallowed us up alive, when their wrath was kindled against us;

Psalms 124:4

then the waters would have overwhelmed us, the stream would have gone over our soul;

Psalms 124:5

then the proud waters would have gone over our soul.

Blessed be the LORD, who has not given us as a prey to their teeth.

Psalms 124:7

Our soul has escaped like a bird out of the fowler's snare. The snare is broken, and we have escaped.

Our help is in the name of the LORD, who made heaven and earth. A Song of Ascents.
