Psalm 124Darby Translation (DARBY)

A Song of degrees. Of David.

124 If it had not been Jehovah who was for us—oh let Israel say—

If it had not been Jehovah who was for us, when men rose up against us,

Then they had swallowed us up alive, when their anger was kindled against us;

Then the waters had overwhelmed us, a torrent had gone over our soul;

Then the proud waters had gone over our soul.

Blessed be Jehovah, who gave us not up a prey to their teeth!

Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers: the snare is broken, and we have escaped.

Our help is in the name of Jehovah, the maker of heavens and earth.

Psalm 124New International Version (NIV)

Psalm 124

A song of ascents. Of David.

If the Lord had not been on our side—
    let Israel say
if the Lord had not been on our side
    when people attacked us,
they would have swallowed us alive
    when their anger flared against us;
the flood would have engulfed us,
    the torrent would have swept over us,
the raging waters
    would have swept us away.

Praise be to the Lord,
    who has not let us be torn by their teeth.
We have escaped like a bird
    from the fowler’s snare;
the snare has been broken,
    and we have escaped.
Our help is in the name of the Lord,
    the Maker of heaven and earth.
