A song of ascents. Of David. If the LORD had not been on our side - let Israel say - (Psalm 124:1)

if the LORD had not been on our side when men attacked us, (Psalm 124:2)

when their anger flared against us, they would have swallowed us alive; (Psalm 124:3)

the flood would have engulfed us, the torrent would have swept over us, (Psalm 124:4)

the raging waters would have swept us away. (Psalm 124:5)

Praise be to the LORD, who has not let us be torn by their teeth. (Psalm 124:6)

We have escaped like a bird out of the fowler's snare; the snare has been broken, and we have escaped. (Psalm 124:7)

Our help is in the name of the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth. (Psalm 124:8)
