Psalm 124

A Song of Ascents of David
1 Unless it had been Jehovah who was for us, let Israel now say:
2 Unless it had been Jehovah who was for us, when men rose up against us,
3 then they would have swallowed us alive, when their wrath was kindled against us.
4 Then the waters would have overwhelmed us, the stream would have gone over our soul;
5 then the churning waters would have gone over our soul.
6 Blessed is Jehovah, who has not given us as prey to their teeth.
7 Our soul has escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers; the snare is broken, and we have escaped.
8 Our help is in the name of Jehovah, who made the heavens and the earth.
