Psalm 124

David says, Israel’s help is in the name of the Lord.

A Song of degrees of David.

1 If it had not been the Lord who was on our side, now may Israel say;

2 If it had not been the Lord who was on our side, when men rose up against us:

3 Then they had aswallowed us up quick, when their wrath was kindled against us:

4 Then the waters had overwhelmed us, the stream had gone over our soul:

5 Then the proud waters had gone over our soul.

6 Blessed be the Lord, who hath not given us as a prey to their teeth.

7 Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the asnare of the fowlers: the snare is broken, and we are escaped.

8 Our ahelp is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth.
