|Praise for Rescue from Enemies|
|A Song of Ascents; of David.|
| ||IF it had not been Jehovah who was on our side,|
Let Israel now say,
| ||If it had not been Jehovah who was on our side,|
When men rose up against us;
| ||Then they had swallowed us up alive,|
When their wrath was kindled against us:
| ||Then the waters had overwhelmed us,|
The stream had gone over our soul;
| ||Then the proud waters had gone over our soul.|
| ||Blessed be Jehovah,|
Who hath not given us as a prey to their teeth.
| ||Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers:|
The snare is broken, and we are escaped.
| ||Our help is in the name of Jehovah,|
Who made heaven and earth.
