A Song of Ascents. Of David.
Psalm 124:1 “If it had not been the Lord (Yᵊhōvâ) who was on our side,”
Let Israel now say—
Psalm 124:2 “If it had not been the Lord (Yᵊhōvâ) who was on our side,
When men rose up against us,
Psalm 124:3 Then they would have swallowed us alive,
When their wrath was kindled against us;
Psalm 124:4 Then the waters (of people: armies: an invasive flood) would have overwhelmed us,
The stream would have gone over (swept over) our soul;
Psalm 124:5 Then the swollen waters
Would have gone over (swept over) our soul.”
Psalm 124:6 Blessed be the Lord (Yᵊhōvâ),
Who has not given us as prey to their teeth.
Psalm 124:7 Our soul has escaped as a bird from the snare of the fowlers (those who catch birds in a trap or snare);
The snare is broken, and we have escaped.
Psalm 124:8 Our help is in the name of the Lord (Yᵊhōvâ),
Who made heaven and earth.
