Psalms Chapter 124
From The Open Bible Project
A Song of Ascents. By David.
124:1 If it had not been Yahweh who was on our side, let Israel now say,
124:2 if it had not been Yahweh who was on our side, when men rose up against us;
124:3 then they would have swallowed us up alive, when their wrath was kindled against us;
124:4 then the waters would have overwhelmed us, the stream would have gone over our soul;
124:5 then the proud waters would have gone over our soul.
124:6 Blessed be Yahweh, who has not given us as a prey to their teeth.
124:7 Our soul has escaped like a bird out of the fowler's snare. The snare is broken, and we have escaped.
124:8 Our help is in the name of Yahweh, who made heaven and earth.
