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.
