Psalm 124

Psalm 124

1: If it had not been the LORD who was on our side, now may Israel say;

2: If it had not been the LORD who was on our side, when men rose up against us:

3: Then they had swallowed us up quick, when their wrath was kindled against us:

4: Then the waters had overwhelmed us, the stream had gone over our soul:

5: Then the proud waters had gone over our soul.

6: Blessed be the LORD, who hath not given us as a prey to their teeth.

7: Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers: the snare is broken, and we are escaped.

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


blessing the LORD: the LORD is on my side

recognizing that my help is in the name of the LORD
