Psalms 1241 “If the Lord had not been on our side” –
let Israel say this! –
2 if the Lord had not been on our side,
when men attacked us, ▼
▼ Heb “rose up against us.”
3 they would have swallowed us alive,
when their anger raged against us.
4 The water would have overpowered us;
the current ▼
▼ Or “stream.”would have overwhelmed ▼
▼ Heb “would have passed over.”us. ▼
▼ Heb “our being.” The Hebrew term נֶפֶשׁ (nefesh) with a pronominal suffix is often equivalent to a pronoun, especially in poetry (see BDB 660 s.v. נֶפֶשׁ 4.a).
5 The raging water
would have overwhelmed us. ▼
▼ Heb “then they would have passed over our being, the raging waters.”
6 The Lord deserves praise, ▼
▼ Heb “blessed [be] the Lord.”
▼ Heb “[the one] who.”he did not hand us over as prey to their teeth.
7 We escaped with our lives, ▼
▼ Heb “our life escaped.”like a bird from a hunter’s snare.
The snare broke, and we escaped.
Our deliverer is the Lord ▼
▼ Heb “our help [is] in the name of the Lord.”
the Creator ▼
▼ Or “Maker.”of heaven and earth.
▼ Psalm 125. The psalmist affirms his confidence in the Lord’s protection and justice.
A song of ascents.8 ▼
