Psalm of the Day – May 4, 2020 (Psalm 124)

1   If it had not been the LORD who was on our side 
          — let Israel now say — 
2   if it had not been the LORD who was on our side, 
          when our enemies attacked us, 
3   then they would have swallowed us up alive, 
          when their anger was kindled against us; 
4   then the flood would have swept us away, 
          the torrent would have gone over us; 
5   then over us would have gone 
          the raging waters.

6   Blessed be the LORD, 
          who has not given us 
          as prey to their teeth. 
7   We have escaped like a bird 
          from the snare of the fowlers; 
     the snare is broken, 
          and we have escaped.

8   Our help is in the name of the LORD, 
          who made heaven and earth.
