Psalms Chapter 124 תְּהִלִּים

א  שִׁיר הַמַּעֲלוֹת, לְדָוִד:
לוּלֵי יְהוָה, שֶׁהָיָה לָנוּ--    יֹאמַר-נָא, יִשְׂרָאֵל.
1 A Song of Ascents; of David. {N}
'If it had not been the LORD who was for us', let Israel now say;
ב  לוּלֵי יְהוָה, שֶׁהָיָה לָנוּ--    בְּקוּם עָלֵינוּ אָדָם. 2 'If it had not been the LORD who was for us, when men rose up against us,
ג  אֲזַי, חַיִּים בְּלָעוּנוּ--    בַּחֲרוֹת אַפָּם בָּנוּ. 3 Then they had swallowed us up alive, when their wrath was kindled against us;
ד  אֲזַי, הַמַּיִם שְׁטָפוּנוּ--    נַחְלָה, עָבַר עַל-נַפְשֵׁנוּ. 4 Then the waters had overwhelmed us, the stream had gone over our soul;
ה  אֲזַי, עָבַר עַל-נַפְשֵׁנוּ--    הַמַּיִם, הַזֵּידוֹנִים. 5 Then the proud waters had gone over our soul.'
ו  בָּרוּךְ יְהוָה--    שֶׁלֹּא נְתָנָנוּ טֶרֶף, לְשִׁנֵּיהֶם. 6 Blessed be the LORD, who hath not given us as a prey to their teeth.
ז  נַפְשֵׁנוּ--    כְּצִפּוֹר נִמְלְטָה, מִפַּח יוֹקְשִׁים:
הַפַּח נִשְׁבָּר,    וַאֲנַחְנוּ נִמְלָטְנוּ.
7 Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers; {N}
the snare is broken, and we are escaped.
ח  עֶזְרֵנוּ, בְּשֵׁם יְהוָה--    עֹשֵׂה, שָׁמַיִם וָאָרֶץ. 8 Our help is in the name of the LORD, who made heaven and earth. {P}
