Tehillim - Psalms 124


1A Song of Ascents; of David.

‘If it had not been the Lord who was for us’,Let Israel now say;

2‘If it had not been the Lord who was for us,When men rose up against us,
3Then they had swallowed us up alive,When their wrath was kindled against us;
4Then the waters had overwhelmed us,The stream had gone over our soul;
5Then the proud watersHad gone over our soul.’
6Blessed be the Lord,Who hath not given us as a prey to their teeth.
7Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers;The snare is broken, and we are escaped.
8Our help is in the name of the Lord,Who made heaven and earth.
