Psalms 124

Psalms 124:1  
A Song of the going up. Of David. If it had not been the Lord who was on our side (let Israel now say);

Psalms 124:2  
If it had not been the Lord who was on our side, when men came up against us;

Psalms 124:3  
They would have made a meal of us while still living, in the heat of their wrath against us:

Psalms 124:4  
We would have been covered by the waters; the streams would have gone over our soul;

Psalms 124:5  
Yes, the waters of pride would have gone over our soul.

Psalms 124:6  
Praise be to the Lord, who has not let us be wounded by their teeth.

Psalms 124:7  
Our soul has gone free like a bird out of the net of those who would take her: the net is broken, and we are free.

Psalms 124:8  
Our help is in the name of the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth.
