The Bible – Psalms 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.
