1If it had not been the LORD who was on our side, now may Israelsay ;
2If it had not been the LORD who was on our side, when men rose up against us:
3Then they had swallowed us upquick, when their wrath was kindled against us:
4Then the waters had overwhelmed us, the stream had gone over our soul:5Then the proudwaters had gone over our soul.6Blessed be the LORD, 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 .
Our help is in the name of the LORD, who madeheaven and earth.
