Psalms 124 (asv)

Psalms 124 (asv)

A Song of Ascents; of David.

124:1If it had not been Jehovah who was on our side,

Let Israel now say,

124:2If it had not been Jehovah who was on our side,

When men rose up against us;

124:3Then they had swallowed us up alive,

When their wrath was kindled against us;

124:4Then the waters had overwhelmed us,

The stream had gone over our soul;

124:5Then the proud waters had gone over our soul.

124:6Blessed be Jehovah,

Who hath not given us as a prey to their teeth.

124:7Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers:

The snare is broken, and we are escaped.

124:8Our help is in the name of Jehovah,

Who made heaven and earth.
