Psalms 124:1

Context
Psalm 124 1 

A song of ascents, 2  by David.

124:1 “If the Lord had not been on our side” –

let Israel say this! –

1 sn Psalm 124. Israel acknowledges that the Lord delivered them from certain disaster.

2 sn The precise significance of this title, which appears in Pss 120-134, is unclear. Perhaps worshipers recited these psalms when they ascended the road to Jerusalem to celebrate annual religious festivals. For a discussion of their background see L. C. Allen, Psalms 101-150 (WBC), 219-21.
