Psalm 124 – Video Illustration for Verses 4-5

Psalm 124.2-5

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.

  • The storm video clip though an imagery of Psalm 124 but conclusively on the clip, does show little of …..’the snare is broken and we are escaped’. However, ‘our help (always) is in the name of the LORD, who made the heaven and earth’

    • Yes, I agree. I was only trying for an illustration of those middle verses.
