Psalms 124:1-8

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 escapedFrom 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.”
