Psalm 124 GW

1 "If the LORD had not been on our side..." (Israel should repeat this.)
2 "If the LORD had not been on our side when people attacked us,
3 then they would have swallowed us alive when their anger exploded against us.
4 Then the floodwaters would have swept us away. An [overflowing] stream would have washed us away.
5 Then raging water would have washed us away."
6 Thank the LORD, who did not let them sink their teeth into us.
7 We escaped like a bird caught in a hunter's trap. The trap was broken, and we escaped.
8 Our help is in the name of the LORD, the maker of heaven and earth.
