Psalm 124:1-Psalm 125:1 - The Lord Is On Our Side

1 {A Song of degrees. Of David.} If it had not been Jehovah who was for us oh let Israel say -- 2 If it had not been Jehovah who was for us, when men rose up against us, 3 Then they had swallowed us up alive, when their anger was kindled against us; 4 Then the waters had overwhelmed us, a torrent had gone over our soul; 5 Then the proud waters had gone over our soul.

6 Blessed be Jehovah, who gave us not up a prey to their teeth! 7 Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers: the snare is broken, and we have escaped. 8 Our help is in the name of Jehovah, the maker of heavens and earth.

1 {A Song of degrees.} They that confide in Jehovah are as mount Zion, which cannot be moved; it abideth for ever.
