The Psalms

Psalm 124

The church blesses God for a miraculous deliverance, 1-8.

1 [A Song of Degrees of David.] If it had not been the LORD who was on our side—now may Israel say—

2 If it had not been the LORD who was on our side when men rose up against us,

3 Then they would have swallowed us up quick 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 the LORD who has not given us as a prey to their teeth.

7 Our soul has escaped as a bird out of 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.
