Psalm 124

1  If the Lord himself had not been on our side, 
   now may Israel say;
2  If the Lord had not been on our side, 
   when enemies rose up against us;
3  Then would they have swallowed us alive 
   when their anger burned against us;
4  Then would the waters have overwhelmed us
      and the torrent gone over our soul; 
   over our soul would have swept the raging waters.
5  But blessed be the Lord 
   who has not given us over to be a prey for their teeth.
6  Our soul has escaped
      as a bird from the snare of the fowler; 
   the snare is broken and we are delivered.
7  Our help is in the name of the Lord, 
   who has made heaven and earth.

Psalm 125

1  Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion, 
   which cannot be moved, but stands fast for ever.
2  As the hills stand about Jerusalem, 
   so the Lord stands round about his people,
      from this time forth for evermore.
3  The sceptre of wickedness shall not hold sway
      over the land allotted to the righteous, 
   lest the righteous turn their hands to evil.
4  Do good, O Lord, to those who are good, 
   and to those who are true of heart.
5  Those who turn aside to crooked ways
      the Lord shall take away with the evildoers; 
   but let there be peace upon Israel.
