Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 A Song of the Ascents, by David. Save [for] Jehovah -- who hath been for us, (Pray, let Israel say), 1 If the LORD had not been on our side-- let Israel say--
2 Save [for] Jehovah -- who hath been for us, In the rising up of man against us, 2 if the LORD had not been on our side when men attacked us,
3 Then alive they had swallowed us up, In the burning of their anger against us, 3 when their anger flared against us, they would have swallowed us alive;
4 Then the waters had overflowed us, The stream passed over our soul, 4 the flood would have engulfed us, the torrent would have swept over us,
5 Then passed over our soul had the proud waters. 5 the raging waters would have swept us away.
6 Blessed [is] Jehovah who hath not given us, A prey to their teeth. 6 Praise be to the LORD, who has not let us be torn by their teeth.
7 Our soul as a bird hath escaped from a snare of fowlers, The snare was 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 Jehovah, Maker of the heavens and earth! 8 Our help is in the name of the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.
