Psalm 124

Psalm 124

A Song of [a]Ascents. Of David.

1 If it had not been the Lord Who was on our side—now may Israel say—

2 If it had not been the Lord Who was on our side when men rose up against us,

3 Then they would have quickly swallowed us up alive when their wrath was kindled against us;

4 Then the waters would have overwhelmed us and swept us away, the torrent would have gone over us;

5 Then the proud waters would have gone over us.

6 Blessed be the Lord, Who has not given us as prey to their teeth!

7 We are like a bird escaped from the snare of the fowlers; the snare is broken, and we have escaped!

8 Our help is in the name of the Lord, Who made heaven and earth.
