Psalms - Chapter 124 | Good News Translation

  • 1. What if the LORD had not been on our side? Answer, O Israel!
  • 2. "If the LORD had not been on our side when our enemies attacked us,
  • 3. then they would have swallowed us alive in their furious anger against us;
  • 4. then the flood would have carried us away, the water would have covered us,
  • 5. the raging torrent would have drowned us."
  • 6. Let us thank the LORD, who has not let our enemies destroy us.
  • 7. We have escaped like a bird from a hunter's trap; the trap is broken, and we are free!
  • 8. Our help comes from the LORD, who made heaven and earth.
