Psalms 124

Psalms 124:1  
If it had not been Yahweh who was on our side, let Israel now say,

Psalms 124:2  
if it had not been Yahweh who was on our side, when men rose up against us,

Psalms 124:3  
then they would have swallowed us up alive, when their wrath was kindled against us,

Psalms 124:4  
then the waters would have overwhelmed us, the stream would have gone over our soul.

Psalms 124:5  
Then the proud waters would have gone over our soul.

Psalms 124:6  
Blessed be Yahweh, who has not given us as a prey to their teeth.

Psalms 124:7  
Our soul has escaped like a bird out of the fowler’s snare. The snare is broken, and we have escaped.

Our help is in Yahweh’s name, who made heaven and earth.
