Psalms 124

The Lord Is on Our Side
A song of ascents. Of David.
1If the Lord had not been on our side —
let Israel say —
2If the Lord had not been on our side#Ps 94:17
when people attacked us,#Ps 129:1
3then they would have swallowed us alive
in their burning anger against us.#Ps 35:25; 56:1; Pr 1:12
4Then the water would have engulfed us;
the torrent would have swept over us;
5the raging water would have swept over us.#Jb 22:11; Ps 32:6; 69:2
6Blessed be the Lord,
who has not let us be ripped apart by their teeth.#Ps 27:2; Pr 30:14
7We have escaped like a bird from the hunter’s net;
the net is torn, and we have escaped.#Ps 91:3
8Our help is in the name of the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.#Ps 115:15; 121:2
