2 if it had not been the Lord who was on our side,
when our enemies attacked us,
3 then they would have swallowed us up alive,
when their anger was kindled against us;
4 then the flood would have swept us away,
the torrent would have gone over us;
5 then over us would have gone
the raging waters.
(Full text of Psalm 124)
Psalm 124 is reminiscent of watery chaos. I thought this clip from the movie “The Perfect Storm” might have conveyed the imagery … okay maybe it’s a little (a lot?) over the top. But, here it is anyway. I think it’s the made for TV version so I believe the language is edited. At least, it sounds like it to me.
