Common English Bible (CEB) New International Version (NIV)
1 If the LORD hadn't been for us— let Israel now repeat!— 1 If the LORD had not been on our side-- let Israel say--
2 if the LORD hadn't been for us, when those people attacked us 2 if the LORD had not been on our side when men attacked us,
3 then they would have swallowed us up whole with their rage burning against us! 3 when their anger flared against us, they would have swallowed us alive;
4 Then the waters would have drowned us; the torrent would have come over our necks; 4 the flood would have engulfed us, the torrent would have swept over us,
5 then the raging waters would have come over our necks! 5 the raging waters would have swept us away.
6 Bless the LORD because he didn't hand us over like food for our enemies' teeth! 6 Praise be to the LORD, who has not let us be torn by their teeth.
7 We escaped like a bird from the hunters' trap; the trap was broken so 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 is in the name of the LORD, the maker of heaven and earth. 8 Our help is in the name of the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.
