A Song of degrees of Dawid.
1 “If it had not been יהוה who was on our side, now may Yisrael say;
2 If it had not been יהוה who was on our side, when men rose up against us;
3 Then they had swallowed us up quick, when their wrath was kindled against us;
4 Then the waters had overwhelmed us, the stream had gone over our soul:
5 Then the proud waters had gone over our soul.”
6 Blessed be יהוה, who hath not given us as a prey to their teeth.
7 Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers; the snare is broken, and we are escaped.
8 Our help is in the name of יהוה, who made heaven and earth.
