Psalms - Chapter 124

1

A song of ascents. Of David. If the LORD had not been on our side-- let Israel say--


2

if the LORD had not been on our side when men attacked us,


3

when their anger flared against us, they would have swallowed us alive;


4

the flood would have engulfed us, the torrent would have swept over us,


5

the raging waters would have swept us away.


6

Praise be to the LORD, who has not let us be torn by their teeth.


7

We have escaped like a bird out of the fowler's snare; the snare has been broken, and we have escaped.


8

Our help is in the name of the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.
