124 (0) A song of ascents. By David:

(1) If Adonai hadn’t been for us —
let Isra’el repeat it —
If Adonai hadn’t been for us
when people rose to attack us,
then, when their anger blazed against us,
they would have swallowed us alive!
Then the water would have engulfed us,
the torrent would have swept over us.
Yes, the raging water
would have swept right over us.

Blessed be Adonai, who did not leave us
to be a prey for their teeth!
We escaped like a bird from the hunter’s trap;
the trap is broken, and we have escaped.

Our help is in the name of Adonai,
the maker of heaven and earth.
