The Book of Psalms

Psalm 123

Nisi quia Domini.

The church giveth glory to God for her deliverance, from the hands of her enemies.


1
A gradual canticle. If it had not been that the Lord was with us, let Israel now say:

2
If it had not been that the Lord was with us, When men rose up against us,

3
Perhaps they had swallowed us up alive. When their fury was enkindled against us,

4
Perhaps the waters had swallowed us up.

5
Our soul hath passed through a torrent: perhaps our soul had passed through a water insupportable.

6
Blessed be the Lord, who hath not given us to be a prey to their teeth.

7
Our soul hath been delivered as a sparrow out of the snare of the fowlers. The snare is broken, and we are delivered.

8
Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth.
