Wycliffe (WYC) New International Version (NIV)
1 The song of degrees of David. Israel say now, No but for the Lord was in us; (The song of degrees for David. Let Israel say now, If the Lord was not with us/If the Lord had not been for us,) 1 If the LORD had not been on our side-- let Israel say--
2 no but for the Lord was in us. When men rose up against us; (yea, if the Lord was not with us/if the Lord had not been for us; then when men rose up against us,) 2 if the LORD had not been on our side when men attacked us,
3 in hap they had swallowed us quick. When the strong vengeance of them was wroth against us; (they would have swallowed us up alive. Yea, when their fury raged against us;) 3 when their anger flared against us, they would have swallowed us alive;
4 in hap water had swallowed us up. Our soul passed through a strand; (the water would have swallowed us up. When the stream had gone up over our heads;) 4 the flood would have engulfed us, the torrent would have swept over us,
5 in hap our soul had passed through a water unsufferable. (when the insufferable waters had gone up over our heads.) 5 the raging waters would have swept us away.
6 Blessed be the Lord; that gave not us into taking, [(or) the catching,] of the teeth of them. (Blessed be the Lord; who did not allow us to be caught by their teeth.) 6 Praise be to the LORD, who has not let us be torn by their teeth.
7 Our soul, as a sparrow, is delivered; from the snare of hunters. The snare is all-broken; and we be delivered. (We have escaped, like a sparrow, from the hunter's snare. The snare is all-broken; and we be set 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 is in the name of the Lord; that made heaven and earth (who made heaven and earth). 8 Our help is in the name of the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.
