Psalm 124:1-8

A Song of the Ascents. Of David. 124  “Had it not been that Jehovah proved to be for us,”+ Let Israel now say,+   “Had it not been that Jehovah proved to be for us+ When men* rose up against us,+   Then they would have swallowed us up even alive,+ When their anger was burning against us.+   Then the very waters would have washed us away,+ The torrent itself would have passed over our soul.+   Then there would have passed over our soul The waters of presumptuousness.+   Blessed be Jehovah, who has not given us+ As a prey to their teeth.+   Our soul is like a bird that is escaped+ From the trap of baiters.+ The trap is broken,+ And we ourselves have escaped.+   Our help is in the name of Jehovah,+ The Maker of heaven and earth.”+
