Psalm 124

A song by David for going up to worship.

“If Yahweh had not been on our side . . .”
    (Israel should repeat this.)
“If Yahweh had not been on our side when people attacked us,
then they would have swallowed us alive
    when their anger exploded against us.
Then the floodwaters would have swept us away.
    An overflowing stream would have washed us away.
Then raging water would have washed us away.”

Thank Yahweh, who did not let them sink their teeth into us.
We escaped like a bird caught in a hunter’s trap.
    The trap was broken, and we escaped.
Our help is in the name of Yahweh, the maker of heaven and earth.
