Lexham English Bible (LEB) New International Version (NIV)
1 "If [it had] not [been] Yahweh who was on our side," do let Israel say, 1 If the LORD had not been on our side-- let Israel say--
2 "If [it had] not [been] Yahweh 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 they would have swallowed us 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 would have flooded over us, [the] torrent would have passed over our soul. 4 the flood would have engulfed us, the torrent would have swept over us,
5 Then over our soul would have passed the raging waters." 5 the raging waters would have swept us away.
6 Blessed [be] Yahweh, who has not made us prey for their teeth. 6 Praise be to the LORD, who has not let us be torn by their teeth.
7 Our soul has escaped like a bird from [the] snare of 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 Yahweh, maker of heaven and earth. 8 Our help is in the name of the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.
