Our Help Is in the Name of the Lord

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 124:1 - A Song of Ascents. Of David.
If it had not been the LORD who was on our side—
let Israel now say—
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 124:2 - if it had not been the LORD who was on our side
when people rose up against us,
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 124:3 - then they would have swallowed us up alive,
when their anger was kindled against us;
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 124:4 - then the flood would have swept us away,
the torrent would have gone over us;
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 124:5 - then over us would have gone
the raging waters.
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 124:6 - Blessed be the LORD,
who has not given us
as prey to their teeth!
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 124:7 - We have escaped like a bird
from the snare of the fowlers;
the snare is broken,
and we have escaped!
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 124:8 - Our help is in the name of the LORD,
who made heaven and earth.
