Third Millennium Bible (TMB) New International Version (NIV)
1 <> "If it had not been the LORD who was on our side"--now may Israel 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 rose up against us, 2 if the LORD had not been on our side when men attacked us,
3 then would they have swallowed us up alive when their wrath was kindled against us; 3 when their anger flared against us, they would have swallowed us alive;
4 then would the waters have overwhelmed us, the stream would have gone over our soul; 4 the flood would have engulfed us, the torrent would have swept over us,
5 then the proud waters would have gone over our soul." 5 the raging waters would have swept us away.
6 Blessed be the LORD, who hath not given us as a prey to their teeth. 6 Praise be to the LORD, who has not let us be torn by their teeth.
7 Our soul has escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers; the snare 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 the LORD, who made heaven and earth. 8 Our help is in the name of the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.
