Psalm 124

MSG 1 If God hadn't been for us - all together now, Israel, sing out! - NIV 1 If the LORD had not been on our side-- let Israel say-- MSG 2 If God hadn't been for us when everyone went against us, NIV 2 if the LORD had not been on our side when men attacked us, MSG 3 We would have been swallowed alive by their violent anger, NIV 3 when their anger flared against us, they would have swallowed us alive; MSG 4 Swept away by the flood of rage, drowned in the torrent; NIV 4 the flood would have engulfed us, the torrent would have swept over us, MSG 5 We would have lost our lives in the wild, raging water. NIV 5 the raging waters would have swept us away. MSG 6 Oh, blessed be God! He didn't go off and leave us. He didn't abandon us defenseless, helpless as a rabbit in a pack of snarling dogs. NIV 6 Praise be to the LORD, who has not let us be torn by their teeth. MSG 7 We've flown free from their fangs, free of their traps, free as a bird. Their grip is broken; we're free as a bird in flight. NIV 7 We have escaped like a bird out of the fowler's snare; the snare has been broken, and we have escaped. MSG 8 God's strong name is our help, the same God who made heaven and earth. NIV 8 Our help is in the name of the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.
