Psalm 124
World English Bible [Par] 

Our Help is in the Name of the Lord

1A Song of Ascents. By David. If it had not been Yahweh who was on our side, let Israel now say,

2if it had not been Yahweh who was on our side, when men rose up against us,

3then they would have swallowed us up alive, when their wrath was kindled against us,

4then the waters would have overwhelmed us, the stream would have gone over our soul.

5Then the proud waters would have gone over our soul.

6Blessed be Yahweh, who has not given us as a prey to their teeth.

7Our soul has escaped like a bird out of the fowler’s snare. The snare is broken, and we have escaped.

8Our help is in Yahweh’s name, who made heaven and earth.
