Psalm 124


A Song of degrees of David

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

now may Israel say;


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

when men rose up against us:


3. then they had swallowed us up quick,

when their wrath was kindled against us:


4. then the waters had overwhelmed us,

the stream had gone over our soul:


5. then the proud waters had gone over our soul.


6. Blessed be the Lord,

who hath not given us as a prey to their teeth.


7. Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers:

the snare is broken, and we are escaped.


8 Our help is in the name of the Lord,

who made heaven and earth.
