Ps.124:1 If it had not been the Lord who was on our side, now may Israel say;
Ps.124:2 If it had not been the Lord who was on our side, when men rose up against us:
Ps.124:3 Then they had swallowed us up quick, when their wrath was kindled against us:
Ps.124:4 Then the waters had overwhelmed us, the stream had gone over our soul:
Ps.124:5 Then the proud waters had gone over our soul.
Ps.124:6 Blessed be the Lord, who hath not given us as a prey to their teeth.
Ps.124:7 Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers: the snare is broken, and we are escaped.
Ps.124:8 Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth.
