Psalm 124

Psalm 124

Our Help Is in the Name of the Lord
A Song of #[See Ps. 120, title]Ascents. Of David.
1 # Ps. 94:17 If it had not been the Lord who was on our side—
# Ps. 129:1 let Israel now say—
2if it had not been the Lord who was on our side
when people rose up against us,
3then they would have #See Ps. 56:1swallowed us up alive,
when their anger was kindled against us;
4then #See Ps. 32:6; Job 22:11 the flood would have #Ps. 69:2; Isa. 8:8 swept us away,
the torrent would have gone #Ps. 69:1over us;
5then over us would have gone
the raging waters.
6Blessed be the Lord,
who has not given us
as prey to their teeth!
7We have escaped like a bird
from #See Ps. 91:3the snare of the fowlers;
the snare is broken,
and we have escaped!
8 # Ps. 121:2 Our help is in the name of the Lord,
who made heaven and earth.
