BBE 1 <A Song of the going up.

NIV 5 the raging waters would have swept us away. BBE 6 Praise be to the Lord, who has not let us be wounded by their teeth. NIV 6 Praise be to the LORD, who has not let us be torn by their teeth. BBE 7 Our soul has gone free like a bird out of the net of those who would take her: the net is broken, and we are free. NIV 7 We have escaped like a bird out of the fowler's snare; the snare has been broken, and we have escaped. BBE 8 Our help is in the name of the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth. NIV 8 Our help is in the name of the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.
