Psalm 124



The Lord Is On Our Side

1 "Had it not been the LORD who was on our side," Let Israel now say,

1 {A Song of degrees of David.} If it had not been the LORD who was on our side, now may Israel say;

1 If the Lord had not been on our side- let Israel say-

1 If the LORD had not been on our side let Israel now say

1 If it had not been the Lord Who was on our side -- "now may Israel say -- "

2 "Had it not been the LORD who was on our side When men rose up against us,

2 If it had not been the LORD who was on our side, when men rose up against us:

2 If the Lord had not been on our side when men attacked us,

2 if the LORD had not been on our side, when men came against us,

2 If it had not been the Lord Who was on our side when men rose up against us,

3 Then they would have swallowed us alive, When their anger was kindled against us;

3 Then they had swallowed us up quick, when their wrath was kindled against us:

3 then they would have swallowed us alive in their burning anger against us.

3 then they would have devoured us alive, when their anger burned against us.

3 Then they would have quickly swallowed us up alive when their wrath was kindled against us;

4 Then the waters would have engulfed us, The stream would have swept over our soul;

4 Then the waters had overwhelmed us, the stream had gone over our soul:

4 Then the waters would have engulfed us; the torrent would have swept over us;

4 Then the flood waters would have overwhelmed us, the torrent would have flooded over us;

4 Then the waters would have overwhelmed us and swept us away, the torrent would have gone over us;

5 Then the raging waters would have swept over our soul."

5 Then the proud waters had gone over our soul.

5 the raging waters would have swept over us.

5 the swollen waters would have swept us away.

5 Then the proud waters would have gone over us.

6 Blessed be the LORD, Who has not given us to be torn by their teeth.

6 Blessed be the LORD, who hath not given us as a prey to their teeth.

6 Praise the Lord, who has not let us be ripped apart by their teeth.

6 Blessed be the LORD, who did not give us as prey to their teeth.

6 Blessed be the Lord, Who has not given us as prey to their teeth!

7 Our soul has escaped as a bird out of the snare of the trapper; The snare is broken and we have escaped.

7 Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers: the snare is broken, and we are escaped.

7 We have escaped like a bird from the hunter's net; the net is torn, and we have escaped.

7 We have escaped like a bird from the hunter's trap. The trap has been broken, and we have escaped.

7 We are like a bird escaped from the snare of the fowlers; the snare is broken, and we have escaped!

8 Our help is in the name of the LORD, Who made heaven and earth.

8 Our help is in the name of the LORD, who made heaven and earth.

8 Our help is in the name of the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.

8 Our help is in the name of the LORD, the maker of heaven and earth. A Song of Ascents

8 Our help is in the name of the Lord, Who made heaven and earth.
