Praise for Rescue from Enemies.
1“If it had not been the Lord who was on our side,”
Let Israel now say,
2“If it had not been the Lord who was on our side
When men rose up against us,
3Then they would have [quickly] swallowed us alive,
When their wrath was kindled against us;
4Then the waters would have engulfed us,
The torrent would have swept over our soul;
5Then the raging waters would have swept over our soul.”
6Blessed be the Lord,
Who has not given us as prey to be torn by their teeth.
7We have escaped like a bird from the snare of the fowlers;
The trap is broken and we have escaped.
8Our help is in the name of the Lord,
Who made heaven and earth.
