Psalm 124Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

A song of David for going up to the Temple.

124 What would have happened to us if the Lord had not been on our side?
    Tell us about it, Israel.
What would have happened to us if the Lord had not been on our side
    when people attacked us?
They would have swallowed us alive
    when they became angry with us.
Their armies would have been
    like a flood washing over us,
    like a river drowning us.
Those proud people would have been
    like water rising up to our mouth and drowning us.

Praise the Lord!
    He did not let our enemies tear us apart.

We escaped like a bird from the net of a hunter.
    The net broke, and we escaped!
Our help came from the Lord,
    the one who made heaven and earth!
