Psalm 124

Thanksgiving for Israel’s Deliverance

A Song of Ascents. Of David.

1

If it had not been the Lord who was on our side

—let Israel now say—

2

if it had not been the Lord who was on our side,

when our enemies attacked us,

3

then they would have swallowed us up alive,

when their anger was kindled against us;

4

then the flood would have swept us away,

the torrent would have gone over us;

5

then over us would have gone

the raging waters.

 

6

Blessed be the Lord,

who has not given us

as prey to their teeth.

7

We have escaped like a bird

from the snare of the fowlers;

the snare is broken,

and we have escaped.

 

8

Our help is in the name of the Lord,

who made heaven and earth.
