Psalms 124

Praise for Rescue from Enemies.

A Song of Ascents, of David.

1 a  Had it not been the  Lord who was on our side,”
b  Let Israel now say,
2Had it not been the  Lord who was on our side
When men rose up against us,
3Then they would have c  swallowed us alive,
When their d  anger was kindled against us;
4Then the e  waters would have engulfed us,
The stream would have
Or passed over
swept over our soul;
5Then the g  raging waters would have
Or passed over
swept over our soul.”

6Blessed be the  Lord,
Who has not given us
Lit as a prey to
to be j  torn by their teeth.
7Our soul has k  escaped l  as a bird out of the m  snare of the trapper;
The snare is broken and we have escaped.
8Our n  help is in the name of the  Lord,
Who o  made heaven and earth.
