Psalm 124

The Lord Is on Our Side

A song of ascents. Of David.

If the Lord had not been on our side —

let Israel say —

2if the Lord had not been on our sidea

when people attacked us,b

3then they would have swallowed us alive

in their burning anger against us.a

4Then the water would have engulfed us;

the torrent would have swept over us;

5the raging water would have swept over us.a

6Blessed be the Lord,

who has not let us be ripped apart by their teeth.a

7We have escaped like a bird from the hunter’s net;

the net is torn, and we have escaped.a

8Our help is in the name of the Lord,

the Maker of heaven and earth.a
