Psalm 124:1-8: A song of David for those journeying to worship.
1 If the Eternal had not been with us— sing, Israel, sing—
2 If He had not been with us when the villains came for us, 3 When their anger flamed around us, they would have swallowed us up alive!
4 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. 5 The furious waters would have broken over us. Battered and overwhelmed, we surely would have drowned!
6 Blessed be the Eternal who did not leave us to be torn by their fangs! 7 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!” 8 Our help has come in the name of the Eternal, the Maker of heaven and earth (The Voice)!
