Psalm 124

If the Lord had not been on our side, now may Israel say :
 if the Lord had not been on our side, when men rose up against us,
Then they would have swallowed us alive :
 when their anger was kindled against us.
Then the waters would have overwhelmed us,
   and the torrent gone over us :
 the raging waters would have gone clean over us.
But praised be the Lord :
 who has not given us as a prey to their teeth.
We have escaped like a bird from the snare of the fowler :
 the snare is broken, and we have gone free.
Our help is in the name of the Lord :
 who has made heaven and earth.

Psalm 125

Those who put their trust in the Lord shall be as Mount Zion :
 which cannot be shaken, but endures for ever.
As the mountains stand about Jerusalem,
   so stands the Lord about his people :
 from this time forward for evermore.
For the sceptre of wickedness shall have no sway
   over the land apportioned to the righteous :
 lest the righteous set their hands to do evil.
Do good, O Lord, to those who are good :
 to those that are upright in heart.
As for those who turn aside to crooked ways,
   let the Lord lead them away with the evildoers :
 and in Israel let there be peace.

Psalm 126

When the Lord turned again the fortunes of Zion :
   then were we like men restored to life.
Then was our mouth filled with laughter :
 and our tongue with singing.
Then said they among the heathen :
 ‘The Lord has done great things for them.’
Truly the Lord has done great things for us :
 and therefore we rejoiced.
Turn again our fortunes, O Lord :
 as the streams return to the dry south.
Those that sow in tears :
 shall reap with songs of joy.
He who goes out weeping, bearing the seed :
 shall come again in gladness, bringing his sheaves with him.
