THE *BOOK OF
Psalm 124 ©
The prophet praises the great mercy of God shown unto His church, by delivering of the same out of the apparent danger from her powerful enemies.
A1 Song of degrees of David.
IF it had not been2 the LORD who was on our side, now may Israel say;
If it had not been the LORD who was on our side, when men rose up against us:
Then they had swallowed us up quick, when their wrath was kindled against us:
Then 3the waters had overwhelmed us, the stream 4had gone 5over our soul:
Then 6the proud waters had gone over our soul.
Blessed be the LORD, who hath not given us as a prey to their teeth.
Oura soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers:b7the snare is broken, and we are escaped.
Ourc help 8is 9in the name of the LORD, who made heaven and earth.
