Bible: Psalm 124

Psalm 124 1 

124:1 A song of ascents, 2  by David.

If the Lord had not been on our side” –

let Israel say this! –

124:2 if the Lord had not been on our side,

when men attacked us, 3 

124:3 they would have swallowed us alive,

when their anger raged against us.

124:4 The water would have overpowered us;

the current 4  would have overwhelmed 5  us. 6 

124:5 The raging water

would have overwhelmed us. 7 

124:6 The Lord deserves praise, 8 

for 9  he did not hand us over as prey to their teeth.

124:7 We escaped with our lives, 10  like a bird from a hunter’s snare.

The snare broke, and we escaped.

124:8 Our deliverer is the Lord, 11 

the Creator 12  of heaven and earth.
