A Song of Ascents. David’s.
124 If it had not been Yahweh who was on our side Oh might Israel say:
2 If it had not been Yahweh who was on our side, When men rose up against us
3 Then alive had they swallowed us up, In the glow of their anger against us;
4 Then the waters had whelmed us, The torrent gone over our soul;
5 Then had gone over our soul The waters so proud!
6 Blessed be Yahweh, Who gave us not as prey to their teeth.
7 Our soul as a bird hath escaped from the snare of the fowlers, The snare is broken and we are escaped:
8 Our help is in the Name of Yahweh, Who made heaven and earth.
