Psalm 124 A Song of [C]Ascents. Of David. 124 1IF IT had not been the Lord Who was on our side--now may Israel say-- 2If it had not been the Lord Who was on our side when men rose up against us, 3Then they would have quickly swallowed us up alive when their wrath was kindled against us; 4Then the waters would have overwhelmed us and swept us away, the torrent would have gone over us; 5Then the proud waters would have gone over us. 6Blessed be the Lord, Who has not given us as prey to their teeth! 7We are like a bird escaped from the snare of the fowlers; the snare is broken, and we have escaped! 8Our help is in the name of the Lord, Who made heaven and earth.
