Psalms 124 (asv)
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.
