Psalm 124

A song of the steps
of David
Unless יְהוָה had been for us
let it be said Israel
Unless יְהוָה had been for us
when humanity rose against us
then they had swallowed us alive

when their their anger kindled against us
then the waters had overflowed us
a torrent passed over our life
then the proud waters passed over our life

Blessed is יְהוָה who has not given us as prey to their teeth
our life as a bird escaped from snare of trappers
the snare is broken and we have escaped
our help is in the name of יְהוָה who makes heaven and earth
