Tehillim 124/Psalm 124

Psalm 124

A Song of Ascents. Of David.
“Had Adonai not been on our side”
—let Israel now say—
“Had Adonai not been on our side,
when men rose up against us,
then they would have swallowed us alive,
when their wrath was kindled against us.
Then the waters would have overwhelmed us,
the torrent would have swept over our soul,
then the raging waters would have swept over our soul.”
Blessed be Adonai,
who has not given us as prey for their teeth.
Our soul has escaped like a bird out of the snare of the trappers
—the snare is broken, and we escaped!
Our help is in the Name of Adonai,
Maker of heaven and earth.

נַפְשֵׁ֗נוּ כְּצִפּ֥וֹר נִמְלְטָה֮ מִפַּ֪ח י֫וֹקְשִׁ֥ים הַפַּ֥ח נִשְׁבָּ֗ר וַאֲנַ֥חְנוּ נִמְלָֽטְנוּ׃
עֶ֭זְרֵנוּ בְּשֵׁ֣ם יְהוָ֑ה עֹ֝שֵׂ֗ה שָׁמַ֥יִם וָאָֽרֶץ׃
