Day 27 — Psalm 124

The Savior of Israel

Song of Ascents, David.

If Yahweh had not been on our side
—let Israel repeat it—
if Yahweh had not been on our side
when they attacked us,
they would have swallowed us alive
and burned us to death in their rage.

The waters would have closed over us,
the torrent have swept us away,
either would have drowned us
in their turbulent waves.

Blessed be Yahweh who did not let us fall
a victim to those teeth,
who let us escape like birds
from the fowler's net.

He tore the net
and we escaped;
our help is in the name of Yahweh,
who made heaven and earth.

Next… Psalm 125
