Bible in Basic English (BBE) New International Version (NIV)
1 If it had not been the Lord who was on our side (let Israel now say); 1 If the LORD had not been on our side-- let Israel say--
2 If it had not been the Lord who was on our side, when men came up against us; 2 if the LORD had not been on our side when men attacked us,
3 They would have made a meal of us while still living, in the heat of their wrath against us: 3 when their anger flared against us, they would have swallowed us alive;
4 We would have been covered by the waters; the streams would have gone over our soul; 4 the flood would have engulfed us, the torrent would have swept over us,
5 Yes, the waters of pride would have gone over our soul. 5 the raging waters would have swept us away.
6 Praise be to the Lord, who has not let us be wounded by their teeth. 6 Praise be to the LORD, who has not let us be torn by their teeth.
7 Our soul has gone free like a bird out of the net of those who would take her: the net is broken, and we are free. 7 We have escaped like a bird out of the fowler's snare; the snare has been broken, and we have escaped.
8 Our help is in the name of the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth. 8 Our help is in the name of the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.
