Psalm 124 English Standard Version

Praise for Deliverance from Enemies

124 1  If it had not been the Lord who was on our side-- let Israel now say-- 2  if it had not been the Lord who was on our side when people rose up against us, 3  then they would have swallowed us up alive, when their anger was kindled against us; 4  then the flood would have swept us away, the torrent would have gone over us; 5  then over us would have gone the raging waters.

6  Blessed be the Lord, who has not given us as prey to their teeth! 7  We have escaped like a bird from the snare of the fowlers; the snare is broken, and we have escaped! 8  Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth.
