New American Standard (NAS) New International Version (NIV)
1 "Had it not been the LORD who was on our side," Let Israel now say, 1 If the LORD had not been on our side-- let Israel say--
2 "Had it 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 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 engulfed us, The stream would have swept over our soul; 4 the flood would have engulfed us, the torrent would have swept over us,
5 Then the raging waters would have swept over our soul." 5 the raging waters would have swept us away.
6 Blessed be the LORD, Who has not given us to be torn by 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 trapper; 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.
