PSALM 124

« Psalm 123 | Psalm 124 | Psalm 125 »

Our Help Is in the Name of the Lord
A Song of Ascents. Of David.
124:1
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 people rose up against us,
3
then they would have swallowed us up alive,
when their anger was kindled against us;
4
then the flood would have swept us away,
the torrent would have gone over us;
5
then over us would have gone
the raging waters.

6
Blessed be the Lord,
who has not given us
as prey to their teeth!
7
We have escaped like a bird
from 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.
