Psalm 124 Monday Evening 3
Had it not been Yahweh who was for us, * let Israel firmly say,
had it not been Yahweh who was for us, * when men rose up against us,
then they would have swallowed us live, * when their anger blazed against us,
then the waters would have engulfed us * like a torrent * sweeping over our neck,
then would have swept over our neck * the raging waters.
Blessed be Yahweh, * who did not give us * like prey to their teeth.
Our neck has escaped like a bird * from the hunter's trap.
The trap is broken, * and we have escaped.
Our help is in the name of Yahweh, * who made heaven and earth.
