Psalm 124
Contemporary English Version

(A song by David for worship.)

Thanking the Lord for Victory

1The Lord was on our side!

Let everyone in Israel say:

2“The Lord was on our side!

Otherwise, the enemy attack

3would have killed us all,

because it was furious.

4We would have been swept away

in a violent flood

5of high and roaring waves.”

6Let's praise the Lord!

He protected us from enemies

who were like wild animals,

7and we escaped like birds

from a hunter's torn net.

8The Lord made heaven and earth,

and he is the one

who sends us help.
