Psalm 124

1 If the Lord had not been on our side, now may Israel say:
    if the Lord had not been on our side, when our enemies rose against us,
2 Then they would have swallowed us alive:
    when their anger was kindled against us.
3 Then the waters would have overwhelmed us, and the torrent gone over us:
    the raging waters would have gone clean over us.
4 But praised be the Lord:
    who has not given us as a prey to their teeth.
5 We have escaped like a bird from the snare of the fowler:
    the snare is broken, and we have gone free.
6 Our help is in the name of the Lord:
    who has made heaven and earth.
