Psalm 124New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
God, the Rescuer of the People
1 A song of ascents. Of David.
Had not the Lord been with us,
let Israel say,
2 Had not the Lord been with us,
when people rose against us,
3 Then they would have swallowed us alive,
for their fury blazed against us.
4 Then the waters would have engulfed us,
the torrent overwhelmed us;
5 then seething water would have drowned us.
6 Blessed is the Lord, who did not leave us
to be torn by their teeth.
7 We escaped with our lives like a bird
from the fowler’s snare;
the snare was broken,
and we escaped.
8 Our help is in the name of the Lord,
the maker of heaven and earth.
