Psalm 124

Thanksgiving for Israel’s Deliverance

A Song of Ascents. Of David.

1If it had not been the Lord who was on our side
    —let Israel now say—
2if it had not been the Lord who was on our side,
    when our enemies attacked us,
3then they would have swallowed us up alive,
    when their anger was kindled against us;
4then the flood would have swept us away,
    the torrent would have gone over us;
5then over us would have gone
    the raging waters.

6Blessed be the Lord,
    who has not given us
    as prey to their teeth.
7We have escaped like a bird
    from the snare of the fowlers;
the snare is broken,
    and we have escaped.

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