Psalm 124

NIRV 1 Here is what Israel should say. Suppose the LORD had not been on our side. NIV 1 If the LORD had not been on our side-- let Israel say-- NIRV 2 Suppose the LORD had not been on our side when our enemies attacked us. NIV 2 if the LORD had not been on our side when men attacked us, NIRV 3 Suppose he had not been on our side when their anger blazed out against us. Then they would have swallowed us alive. NIV 3 when their anger flared against us, they would have swallowed us alive; NIRV 4 They would have been like a flood that drowned us. They would have swept over us like a rushing river. NIV 4 the flood would have engulfed us, the torrent would have swept over us, NIRV 5 They would have washed us away like a swollen stream. NIV 5 the raging waters would have swept us away. NIRV 6 Give praise to the Lord. He has not let our enemies chew us up. NIV 6 Praise be to the LORD, who has not let us be torn by their teeth. NIRV 7 We have escaped like a bird from a hunter's trap. The trap has been broken, and we have escaped. NIV 7 We have escaped like a bird out of the fowler's snare; the snare has been broken, and we have escaped. NIRV 8 Our help comes from the Lord. He is the Maker of heaven and earth. NIV 8 Our help is in the name of the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.
