Praise for Deliverance from Enemies
124 1 " Had it not been the Lord who was on our side," Let Israel now say , 2 "Had it not been the Lord who was on our side When men rose up against us, 3 Then they would have swallowed us alive , When their anger was kindled against us; 4 Then the waters would have engulfed us, The stream would have swept over our soul ; 5 Then the raging waters would have swept over our soul ."
6 Blessed be the Lord , Who has not given us to be torn by their teeth . 7 Our soul has escaped as a bird out of the snare of the trapper ; The snare is broken and we have escaped . 8 Our help is in the name of the Lord , Who made heaven and earth .
