The Darby Translation (DBY) New International Version (NIV)
1 {A Song of degrees. Of David.} If it had not been Jehovah who was for us -- oh let Israel say -- 1 If the LORD had not been on our side-- let Israel say--
2 If it had not been Jehovah who was for us, when men rose up against us, 2 if the LORD had not been on our side when men attacked us,
3 Then they had swallowed us up alive, when their anger was kindled against us; 3 when their anger flared against us, they would have swallowed us alive;
4 Then the waters had overwhelmed us, a torrent had gone over our soul; 4 the flood would have engulfed us, the torrent would have swept over us,
5 Then the proud waters had gone over our soul. 5 the raging waters would have swept us away.
6 Blessed be Jehovah, who gave us not up a prey to their teeth! 6 Praise be to the LORD, who has not let us be torn by their teeth.
7 Our soul is 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 Jehovah, the maker of heavens and earth. 8 Our help is in the name of the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.
