Psalms 124

Praise for Rescue from Enemies.

A Song of Ascents, of David.

a Had it not been the  Lord who was on our side,”
b Let Israel now say,
Had it not been the  Lord who was on our side
When men rose up against us,
Then they would have c swallowed us alive,
When their d anger was kindled against us;
Then the e waters would have engulfed us,
The stream would have
Or passed over
swept over our soul;
Then the g raging waters would have
Or passed over
swept over our soul.”

Blessed be the  Lord,
Who has not given us
Lit as a prey to
to be j torn by their teeth.
Our soul has k escaped l as a bird out of the m snare of the trapper;
The snare is broken and we have escaped.
Our n help is in the name of the  Lord,
Who o made heaven and earth.
