Psalm 124

Our Help Is in the Name of the Lord

1 "IF it had not been the LORD who was on our a side,"
b Let Israel now say -
2 "If it had not been the LORD who was on our side,
When men rose up against us,
3 Then they would have c swallowed us alive,
When their wrath was kindled against us;
4 Then the waters would have overwhelmed us,
The stream would have 1 gone over our soul;
5 Then the swollen waters
Would have 2 gone over our soul."

6 Blessed be the LORD,
Who has not given us as prey to their teeth.
7 d Our soul has escaped e as a bird from the snare of the 3 fowlers;
The snare is broken, and we have escaped.

8 f Our help is in the name of the LORD,
g Who made heaven and earth.
