A Song of the Ascents. Of David. 124  “If Jehovah had not been with us”+ —Let Israel now say—   “If Jehovah had not been with us+ When men rose up to attack us,+   Then they would have swallowed us up alive+ When their anger was burning against us.+   Then the waters would have washed us away, The torrent would have swept over us.*+   The raging waters would have overwhelmed us.*   May Jehovah be praised, For he has not given us as prey to their teeth.   We are* like a bird that escaped From the hunter’s trap;+ The trap was broken, And we escaped.+   Our help is in the name of Jehovah,+ The Maker of heaven and earth.”
