A song ·for going up to worship [of ascents; C perhaps sung while traveling to Jerusalem to celebrate an annual religious festival like Passover]. Of David.
124 What if the Lord had not been on our side? (Let Israel ·repeat this [L say].) 2 What if the Lord had not been on our side when ·we were attacked [L people rose against us]? 3 When they were angry with us, they would have swallowed us alive. 4 They would have been like ·a flood [L water] ·drowning [overflowing] us; they would have ·poured [passed] over us like a ·river [torrent]. 5 They would have ·swept us away [passed over us] like ·a mighty stream [raging waters].
6 ·Praise [Blessed be] the Lord, who did not ·let them chew us up [L give us as prey to their teeth]. 7 We escaped like a bird from the ·hunter’s [fowler’s] trap. The trap broke, and we escaped. 8 Our help ·comes from [L is in the name of] the Lord, who made heaven and earth [Gen. 1].
