Psalms Chapter 124 |
1A song of ascents. Of David.
Were it not for the Lord, who was on our side,
let Israel now declare,
2were it not for the Lord, who was on our side
when men assailed us,
3they would have swallowed us alive
in their burning rage against us;
4the waters would have carried us off,
the torrent would have swept over us;
5over us would have swept
the seething waters.
6Blessed is the Lord, who did not let us
be ripped apart by their teeth.
7We are like a bird escaped from the fowler’s trap;
the trap broke and we escaped.
8Our help is the name of the Lord,
maker of heaven and earth.
