Psalm 124


Our Help Is in the Name of the Lord



 A SONG OF ASCENTS. OF DAVID. 


      1 If it had not been the LORD who was on our side— 

      let Israel now say— 

      2 if it had not been the LORD who was on our side 

      when people rose up against us, 

      3 then they would have swallowed us up alive, 

      when their anger was kindled against us; 

      4 then the flood would have swept us away, 

      the torrent would have gone over us; 

      5 then over us would have gone 

      the raging waters. 


      6 Blessed be the LORD, 

      who has not given us 

      as prey to their teeth! 

      7 We have escaped like a bird 

      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.
