Praise for Deliverance from Enemies
124 1 If it had not been Yahweh who was on our side,
let Israel now say, 2 if it had not been Yahweh who was on our side,
when men rose up against us; 3 then they would have swallowed us up alive,
when their wrath was kindled against us; 4 then the waters would have overwhelmed us,
the stream would have gone over our soul; 5 then the proud waters would have gone over our soul.
6 Blessed be Yahweh,
who has not given us as a prey to their teeth. 7 Our soul has escaped like a bird out of the fowler’s snare.
The snare is broken, and we have escaped. 8 Our help is in the name of Yahweh,
who made heaven and earth.
