Psalm 124 The Message Bible

Praise for Deliverance from Enemies

124 1  If God hadn't been for us - all together now, Israel, sing out! - 2  If God hadn't been for us when everyone went against us, 3  We would have been swallowed alive by their violent anger, 4  Swept away by the flood of rage, drowned in the torrent; 5  We would have lost our lives in the wild, raging water.

6  Oh, blessed be God! He didn't go off and leave us. He didn't abandon us defenseless, helpless as a rabbit in a pack of snarling dogs. 7  We've flown free from their fangs, free of their traps, free as a bird. Their grip is broken; we're free as a bird in flight. 8  God's strong name is our help, the same God who made heaven and earth.
