Psalms 124 (ISV)
A Davidic Song of Ascents
God is for Us
1 If the LORD had not been on our side— let Israel now say—
2 if the LORD had not been on our side, when men came against us,
3 then they would have devoured us alive, when their anger burned against us.
4 Then the flood waters would have overwhelmed us, the torrent would have flooded over us;
5 the swollen waters would have swept us away.
6 Blessed be the LORD, who did not give us as prey to their teeth.
7 We have escaped like a bird from the hunter’s trap. The trap has been broken, and we have escaped.
8 Our help is in the name of the LORD, the maker of heaven and earth.
