Psalms 124


I am now restored to life. Here is a Psalm that was not yet reproduced.

I looked at the draft from 2010 and compared with what is in the most recent English extraction. A few little differences. Hopefully no difference from the restored database.
Psalms 124 Fn Min Max Syll
שִׁ֥יר הַֽמַּעֲל֗וֹת לְדָ֫וִ֥ד
