Psalms 124:6

Blessed be the LORD, who has not given us as a prey to their teeth.
Read Chapter 124

Augustine of Hippo

AD 430
8. Let them escape the water without substance, and say, "Blessed be the Lord, who hath not given us over for a prey unto their teeth" (ver. 6). For the hunters were following, and had placed a bait in their trap. What bait? The sweetness of this life, so that each man for the sake of the sweetness of this life may thrust his head into iniquity, and be caught in the trap. Not they, in whom the Lord was, they who say, "If the Lord Himself had not been in us;" they have not been taken in the trap. Let the Lord be in thee, and thou wilt not be taken in the trap.

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. - 2 Peter 1:20
