PSALM 124

3 Outlines

 

Psalm 124

WITHOUT THE LORD

 

If it had not been the Lord who was on our side, now may Israel say; [2] If it had not been the Lord who was on our side, when men rose up against us:

 

WITHOUT THE LORD WE WOULD BE SWALLOWED Vs.3

Then they had swallowed us up quick, when their wrath was kindled against us:

 

WITHOUT THE LORD WE WOULD DROWN Vss. 4-5

Then the waters had overwhelmed us, the stream had gone over our soul: [5] Then the proud waters had gone over our soul.

 

WITHOUT THE LORD WE WOULD BE PREY Vs. 6

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

 

WITHOUT THE LORD WE WOULD NOT ESCAPE Vs. 7

Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers: the snare is broken, and we are escaped.

 

WITHOUT THE LORD WE WOULD HAVE NO HELP Vs. 8

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