Psalm 124New International Reader's Version (NIRV)
A song for those who go up to Jerusalem to worship the Lord. A psalm of David.
1 Here is what Israel should say. Suppose the Lord had not been on our side. 2 Suppose the Lord had not been on our side when our enemies attacked us. 3 Suppose he had not been on our side when their burning anger blazed out against us. Then they would have swallowed us alive. 4 They would have been like a flood that drowned us. They would have swept over us like a rushing river. 5 They would have washed us away like a swollen stream.
6 Give praise to the Lord. He has not let our enemies chew us up. 7 We have escaped like a bird from a hunter’s trap. The trap has been broken, and we have escaped. 8 Our help comes from the Lord. He is the Maker of heaven and earth.
