Complete Jewish Bible (CJB) New International Version (NIV)
1 A song of ascents. By David: If ADONAI hadn't been for us -let Isra'el repeat it - 1 If the LORD had not been on our side-- let Israel say--
2 If ADONAI hadn't been for us when people rose to attack us, 2 if the LORD had not been on our side when men attacked us,
3 then, when their anger blazed against us, they would have swallowed us alive! 3 when their anger flared against us, they would have swallowed us alive;
4 Then the water would have engulfed us, the torrent would have swept over us. 4 the flood would have engulfed us, the torrent would have swept over us,
5 Yes, the raging water would have swept right over us. 5 the raging waters would have swept us away.
6 Blessed be ADONAI, who did not leave us to be a prey for their teeth! 6 Praise be to the LORD, who has not let us be torn by their teeth.
7 We escaped like a bird from the hunter's trap; the trap is broken, and we have escaped. 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 ADONAI, the maker of heaven and earth. 8 Our help is in the name of the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.
