124 1 If it had not been the LORD who was on our side,
let Israel now say -
124 2 if it had not been the LORD who was on our side,
when men rose up against us,
124 3 then they would have swallowed us up alive,
when their anger was kindled against us;
124 4 then the flood would have swept us away,
the torrent would have gone over us;
124 5 then over us would have gone the raging waters.
124 6 Blessed be the LORD,
who has not given us as prey to their teeth!
124 7 We have escaped as a bird from the snare of the fowlers;
the snare is broken, and we have escaped!
124 8 Our help is in the name of the LORD,
who made heaven and earth.
