Psalm 124 *Our Help Is the Name of Jehovah*

Chapter 124 *Our Help Is the Name of Jehovah*

א שִׁיר הַמַּעֲלוֹת, לְדָוִד:

לוּלֵי יְהוָה, שֶׁהָיָה לָנוּ– יֹאמַר-נָא, יִשְׂרָאֵל. 1

A Song of Ascents; of David. {N}

‘If it had not been jehovah who was for us’,

let Israel now say;

*Our Help Is the Name of Jehovah*

ב לוּלֵי יְהוָה, שֶׁהָיָה לָנוּ– בְּקוּם עָלֵינוּ אָדָם. 2

‘If it had not been jehovah who was for us, when men rose up against us,

*Our Help Is the Name of Jehovah*

ג אֲזַי, חַיִּים בְּלָעוּנוּ– בַּחֲרוֹת אַפָּם בָּנוּ. 3

Then they had swallowed us up alive, when their wrath was kindled against us;

*Our Help Is the Name of Jehovah*

ד אֲזַי, הַמַּיִם שְׁטָפוּנוּ– נַחְלָה, עָבַר עַל-נַפְשֵׁנוּ. 4

Then the waters had overwhelmed us, the stream had gone over our soul;

*Our Help Is the Name of Jehovah*

ה אֲזַי, עָבַר עַל-נַפְשֵׁנוּ– הַמַּיִם, הַזֵּידוֹנִים. 5

Then the proud waters had gone over our soul.’

*Our Help Is the Name of Jehovah*

ו בָּרוּךְ יְהוָה– שֶׁלֹּא נְתָנָנוּ טֶרֶף, לְשִׁנֵּיהֶם. 6

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

*Our Help Is the Name of Jehovah*

ז נַפְשֵׁנוּ– כְּצִפּוֹר נִמְלְטָה, מִפַּח יוֹקְשִׁים:

הַפַּח נִשְׁבָּר, וַאֲנַחְנוּ נִמְלָטְנוּ. 7

Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers; {N}

the snare is broken, and we are escaped.

*Our Help Is the Name of Jehovah*

ח עֶזְרֵנוּ, בְּשֵׁם יְהוָה– עֹשֵׂה, שָׁמַיִם וָאָרֶץ. 8

Our help is in the name of jehovah, who made heaven and earth. {P}

*Our Help Is the Name of Jehovah*
