GOD'S WORD Translation (GW) New International Version (NIV)
1 "If the LORD had not been on our side..." (Israel should repeat this.) 1 If the LORD had not been on our side-- let Israel say--
2 "If the LORD had not been on our side when people attacked us, 2 if the LORD had not been on our side when men attacked us,
3 then they would have swallowed us alive when their anger exploded against us. 3 when their anger flared against us, they would have swallowed us alive;
4 Then the floodwaters would have swept us away. An [overflowing] stream would have washed us away. 4 the flood would have engulfed us, the torrent would have swept over us,
5 Then raging water would have washed us away." 5 the raging waters would have swept us away.
6 Thank the LORD, who did not let them sink their teeth into us. 6 Praise be to the LORD, who has not let us be torn by their teeth.
7 We escaped like a bird caught in a hunter's trap. The trap was broken, and we 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 the LORD, the maker of heaven and earth. 8 Our help is in the name of the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.
