Psalms 124

Our Help Is in the Name of the  Lord

A Song of a  Ascents. Of David.

1 b  If it had not been the  Lord who was on our side—
c  let Israel now say
2if it had not been the  Lord who was on our side
when people rose up against us,
3then they would have d  swallowed us up alive,
when their anger was kindled against us;
4then e  the flood would have f  swept us away,
the torrent would have gone g  over us;
5then over us would have gone
the raging waters.
6 Blessed be the  Lord,
who has not given us
as prey to their teeth!
7We have escaped like a bird
from h  the snare of the fowlers;
the snare is broken,
and we have escaped!
8 i  Our help is in the name of the  Lord,
who made heaven and earth.
