Psalm 124

11QPSa-col-IVA song of the assent for David


If the Lord had not been for us ….

Let Israel say, if the Lord had had not been for us when men rose up against us

our lives would have been swallowed in their burning anger for us.

the flood waters would have overtaken us,

torrents of water would have passed over us.

raging waters would have passed over us

Bless the Lord who did not make us prey for their teeth.

Our souls were like a bird that escaped from the hunters net

The trap was broken and we escaped.

Our help is in the name of the Lord

Maker of heaven and earth
