Praise for Rescue from Enemies.
A Song of Ascents, of David.
124 “Had it not been the Lord who was on our side,”
Let Israel say,
2 “Had it not been the Lord who was on our side
When people rose up against us,
3 Then they would have swallowed us alive,
When their anger was kindled against us;
4 Then the waters would have flooded over us,
The stream would have [a]swept over our souls;
5 Then the raging waters would have [b]swept over our souls.”
6 Blessed be the Lord,
Who has not given us [c]to be torn by their teeth.
7 Our souls have escaped like a bird from the trapper’s snare;
The snare is broken and we have escaped.
8 Our help is in the name of the Lord,
Who made heaven and earth.
