New Century Version (NCV) New International Version (NIV)
1 What if the Lord had not been on our side? (Let Israel repeat this.) 1 If the LORD had not been on our side-- let Israel say--
2 What if the Lord had not been on our side when we were attacked? 2 if the LORD had not been on our side when men attacked us,
3 When they were angry with us, they would have swallowed us alive. 3 when their anger flared against us, they would have swallowed us alive;
4 They would have been like a flood drowning us; they would have poured over us like a river. 4 the flood would have engulfed us, the torrent would have swept over us,
5 They would have swept us away like a mighty stream. 5 the raging waters would have swept us away.
6 Praise the Lord, who did not let them chew us up. 6 Praise be to the LORD, who has not let us be torn by their teeth.
7 We escaped like a bird from the hunter's trap. The trap broke, and we 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 comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth. A song for going up to worship. 8 Our help is in the name of the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.
