Without You, O Lord …

downloadPsalm 124:1-8: A song of David for those journeying to worship.

If the Eternal had not been with us— sing, Israel, sing—
If He had not been with us when the villains came for us, When their anger flamed around us, they would have swallowed us up alive!

Their hatred was like a flood: the waters were rising and would have engulfed us; the streams were rushing past and would have overcome us. The furious waters would have broken over us. Battered and overwhelmed, we surely would have drowned!

Blessed be the Eternal who did not leave us to be torn by their fangs! Our souls cry out: “We escaped with our lives like a bird from the fowler’s snare! The snare was broken, and we escaped with our lives!” Our help has come in the name of the Eternal,  the Maker of heaven and earth (The Voice)!
