1 If it had not been LORD who was on our side, let Israel now say,
2 if it had not been LORD who was on our side when men rose up against us,
3 then they would have swallowed us up alive when their wrath was kindled against us,
4 then the waters would have overwhelmed us, the stream would have gone over our soul,
5 then the proud waters would have gone over our soul.
6 Blessed be LORD, who has not given us as a prey to their teeth.
7 Our soul has escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers. The snare is broken, and we have escaped.
8 Our help is in the name of LORD, who made heaven and earth.
