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.

7 The law of the Lord is perfect,
   reviving the soul;
the decrees of the Lord are sure,
   making wise the simple;
8 the precepts of the Lord are right,
   rejoicing the heart;
the commandment of the Lord is clear,
   enlightening the eyes;
9 the fear of the Lord is pure,
   enduring for ever;
the ordinances of the Lord are true
   and righteous altogether.
10 More to be desired are they than gold,
   even much fine gold;
sweeter also than honey,
   and drippings of the honeycomb.


11 Moreover by them is your servant warned;
   in keeping them there is great reward.
12 But who can detect their errors?
   Clear me from hidden faults.
13 Keep back your servant also from the insolent;*
   do not let them have dominion over me.
Then I shall be blameless,
   and innocent of great transgression.


14 Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart
   be acceptable to you,
   O Lord, my rock and my redeemer.
