If it had not been for the Lord who was on our side, now may Israel say:
If it had not been the Lord who was on our side, when men rose up against
Then they had swallowed us up quick, when their wrath was kindled against us:
Then the proud waters would have overwhelmed
us, the streams the streams gone over our soul.
Blessed be the Lord, who hath not given us as prey to their teeth.
Our soul 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 the Lord, who made heaven and earth.
