Psalm 124

CEB 1 If the LORD hadn't been for us— let Israel now repeat!— NRS 1 If it had not been the Lord who was on our side —let Israel now say— CEB 2 if the LORD hadn't been for us, when those people attacked us NRS 2 if it had not been the Lord who was on our side, when our enemies attacked us, CEB 3 then they would have swallowed us up whole with their rage burning against us! NRS 3 then they would have swallowed us up alive, when their anger was kindled against us; CEB 4 Then the waters would have drowned us; the torrent would have come over our necks; NRS 4 then the flood would have swept us away, the torrent would have gone over us; CEB 5 then the raging waters would have come over our necks! NRS 5 then over us would have gone the raging waters. CEB 6 Bless the LORD because he didn't hand us over like food for our enemies' teeth! NRS 6 Blessed be the Lord, who has not given us as prey to their teeth. CEB 7 We escaped like a bird from the hunters' trap; the trap was broken so we escaped! NRS 7 We have escaped like a bird from the snare of the fowlers; the snare is broken, and we have escaped. CEB 8 Our help is in the name of the LORD, the maker of heaven and earth. NRS 8 Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth.
