Chapter 124

1

 

 A Song of the going up. Of David.
If it had not been the Lord who was on our side (let Israel now say); 

 

 


2

 

 If it had not been the Lord who was on our side, when men came up against us; 

 

 


3

 

 They would have made a meal of us while still living, in the heat of their wrath against us: 

 

 


4

 

 We would have been covered by the waters; the streams would have gone over our soul; 

 

 


5

 

 Yes, the waters of pride would have gone over our soul. 

 

 


6

 

 Praise be to the Lord, who has not let us be wounded by their teeth. 

 

 


7

 

 Our soul has gone free like a bird out of the net of those who would take her: the net is broken, and we are free. 

 

 


8

 

 Our help is in the name of the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth.
