Psalm 124

A Song of degrees. Of David. 1If it had not been Jehovah who was for us — oh let Israel say —

2If it had not been Jehovah who was for us, when men rose up against us,

3Then they had swallowed us up alive, when their anger was kindled against us;

4Then the waters had overwhelmed us, a torrent had gone over our soul;

5Then the proud waters had gone over our soul.

6Blessed be Jehovah, who gave us not up a prey to their teeth!

7Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers: the snare is broken, and we have escaped.

8Our help is in the name of Jehovah, the maker of heavens and earth.
