A Song of Ascents. By David.
1 If it had not been Yahweh who was on our side,
Let Israel now say,
2 If it had not been Yahweh 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 Yahweh,
Who has not given us as a prey to their teeth.
7 Our soul has escaped like a bird out of the fowler’s snare.
The snare is broken, and we have escaped.
8 Our help is in the name of Yahweh,
Who made heaven and earth.
