Good News Translation (GNT) New International Version (NIV)
1 What if the Lord had not been on our side? Answer, O Israel! 1 If the LORD had not been on our side-- let Israel say--
2 "If the Lord had not been on our side when our enemies attacked us, 2 if the LORD had not been on our side when men attacked us,
3 then they would have swallowed us alive in their furious anger against us; 3 when their anger flared against us, they would have swallowed us alive;
4 then the flood would have carried us away, the water would have covered us, 4 the flood would have engulfed us, the torrent would have swept over us,
5 the raging torrent would have drowned us." 5 the raging waters would have swept us away.
6 Let us thank the Lord, who has not let our enemies destroy us. 6 Praise be to the LORD, who has not let us be torn by their teeth.
7 We have escaped like a bird from a hunter's trap; the trap 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 comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth. 8 Our help is in the name of the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.
