|A Song of Ascents. Of David.|
|1||If it had not been the LORD who was on our side, |
let Israel now say -
|The Lord is on Our Side.|
|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 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 as 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.
|<< | Ps:124 | >>|
