Praise for Rescue from Enemies.

1 "1Had it not been the LORD who was on our side," 2Let Israel now say,
2 "Had it not been the LORD who was on our side When men rose up against us,
3 Then they would have 3swallowed us alive, When their 4anger was kindled against us;
4 Then the 5waters would have engulfed us, The stream would have swept over our soul;
5 Then the 6raging waters would have swept over our soul."
6 Blessed be the LORD, Who has not given us to be 7torn by their teeth.
7 Our soul has 8escaped 9as a bird out of the 10snare of the trapper; The snare is broken and we have escaped.
8 Our 11help is in the name of the LORD, Who 12made heaven and earth.
