Psalms



The fifth book of Psalms, song 124, New English Translation and King James Version

Psalm 124

New English Translation


   A song of ascents, by David.
   1 "If the LORD had not been on our side" - let Israel say this! -
   2 if the LORD had not been on our side, when men attacked us,
   3 they would have swallowed us alive, when their anger raged against us.
   4 The water would have overpowered us; the current would have overwhelmed us.
   5 The raging water would have overwhelmed us.
   6 The LORD deserves praise, for he did not hand us over as prey to their teeth.
   7 We escaped with our lives, like a bird from a hunter's snare. The snare broke, and we escaped.
   8 Our deliverer is the LORD, the Creator of heaven and earth.

King James Version


   A Song of degrees of David.
   1 If it had not been the LORD who was on our side, now may Israel say;
   2 If it had not been the LORD who was on our side, when men rose up against us:
   3 Then they had swallowed us up quick, when their wrath was kindled against us:
   4 Then the waters had overwhelmed us, the stream had gone over our soul:
   5 Then the proud waters had gone over our soul.
   6 Blessed be the LORD, who hath not given us as 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 are escaped.
   8 Our help is in the name of the LORD, who made heaven and earth.
