Chapter 124

1


 

  A Song of the going up. Of David.
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 men came up against us;  

 

 


3


 

  They would have made a meal of us while still living, in the heat of their wrath against us:  

 

 


4


 

  We would have been covered by the waters; the streams would have gone over our soul;  

 

 


5


 

  Yes, the waters of pride would have gone over our soul.  

 

 


6


 

  Praise be to the Lord, who has not let us be wounded by their teeth.  

 

 


7


 

  Our soul has gone free like a bird out of the net of those who would take her: the net is broken, and we are free.  

 

 


8


 

  Our help is in the name of the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth.
