Psalm 124

1 “If the LORD had not been on our side,”

 let Israel say—

 2 “If the LORD had not been on our side

 when people rose against us,

 3 then would they have swallowed us alive

 when their anger was kindled.

4 Then would the waters have engulfed us,

 the torrent gone over us;

 5 over our head would have swept

 the raging waters.”

6 Blest be the LORD who did not give us

 a prey to their teeth!

 7 Our life, like a bird, has escaped

 from the snare of the fowler.

Indeed, the snare has been broken,

 and we have escaped.

 8 Our help is in the name of the LORD,

 who made heaven and earth.
