PSALM 124[G] God, the Rescuer of the People 124 1A song of ascents. Of David. Had not the LORD been with us, let Israel say, 2Had not the LORD been with us, when people rose against us, 3Then they would have swallowed us alive, for their fury blazed against us. 4Then the waters would have engulfed us, the torrent overwhelmed us; 5then seething water would have drowned us. 6Blessed is the LORD, who did not leave us to be torn by their teeth. 7We escaped with our lives like a bird from the fowler’s snare; the snare was broken, and we escaped. 8[H]Our help is in the name of the LORD, the maker of heaven and earth.
