Psalm 124
Praise for Deliverance from Enemies
A Song of degrees of David.
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 had swallowed us up quick,
when their wrath was kindled against us:
4then the waters had overwhelmed us,
the stream had gone over our soul:
5then the proud waters had gone over our soul.
6Blessed be the Lord,
who hath not given us as a prey to their teeth.
7Our soul is escaped as a bird
out of the snare of the fowlers:
the snare is broken, and we are escaped.
8Our help is in the name of the Lord,
who made heaven and earth.
