Book of Psalms (Author Moses, David, Solomon, Asaph, Eman, Ethan, sons of Core, compiled by Esdras)

124:1¤ If it had not been that the Lord was with us, let Israel now say:

124:2If it had not been that the Lord was with us, When men rose up against us,

124:3Perhaps they had swallowed us up alive. When their fury was enkindled against us,

124:4Perhaps the waters had swallowed us up.

124:5Our soul hath passed through a torrent: perhaps our soul had passed through a water insupportable.

124:6Blessed be the Lord, who hath not given us to be a prey to their teeth.

124:7Our soul hath been delivered as a sparrow out of the snare of the fowlers. The snare is broken, and we are delivered.

124:8Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth.

125:1¤ They that trust in the Lord shall be as mount Sion: he shall not be moved for ever that dwelleth

125:2In Jerusalem. Mountains are round about it: so the Lord is round about his people from henceforth now and for ever.

125:3For the Lord will not leave the rod of sinners upon the lot of the just: that the just may not stretch forth their hands to iniquity.

125:4Do good, O Lord, to those that are good, and to the upright of heart.

125:5But such as turn aside into bonds, the Lord shall lead out with the workers of iniquity: peace upon Israel.

126:1¤ When the Lord brought back the captivity of Sion, we became like men comforted.

126:2Then was our mouth filled with gladness; and our tongue with joy. Then shall they say among the Gentiles: The Lord hath done great things for them.

126:3The Lord hath done great things for us: we are become joyful.

126:4Turn again our captivity, O Lord, as a stream in the south.

126:5They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.

126:6Going they went and wept, casting their seeds. But coming they shall come with joyfulness, carrying their sheaves.
