|[A Song of Ascents. Of David.]|
|If it had not been the LORD who was on our side, |
let Israel now say -
|Song of the Returning Exiles. Psalm 124(v123)|
|if it had not been the LORD who was on our side, |
when men rose up against us,
|then they would have swallowed us up alive, |
when their anger was kindled against us;
|then the flood would have swept us away, |
the torrent would have gone over us;
|then over us would have gone the raging waters.|
|Blessed be the LORD, |
who has not given us as prey to their teeth!
|We have escaped as a bird from the snare of the fowlers; |
the snare is broken, and we have escaped!
|Our help is in the name of the LORD, |
who made heaven and earth.
|<< | Psalms: 124 | >>|
