New Living Translation


Psalms 124

A song for pilgrims ascending to Jerusalem. A psalm of David.
 1  What if the LORD had not been on our side?
  Let all Israel repeat:
 2  What if the LORD had not been on our side
  when people attacked us?
 3  They would have swallowed us alive
  in their burning anger.
 4  The waters would have engulfed us;
  a torrent would have overwhelmed us.
 5  Yes, the raging waters of their fury
  would have overwhelmed our very lives.

 6  Praise the LORD,
  who did not let their teeth tear us apart!
 7  We escaped like a bird from a hunter's trap.
  The trap is broken, and we are free!
 8  Our help is from the LORD,
  who made heaven and earth.
