Praise for Rescue from Enemies.
A Song of [a]Ascents. Of David.
1“If it had not been the Lord who was on our side,”
Let Israel now say,
“If it had not been the Lord who was on our side
When men rose up against us,
Then they would have [quickly] swallowed us alive,
When their wrath was kindled against us;
Then the waters would have engulfed us,
The torrent would have swept over our soul;
Then the [b]raging waters would have swept over our soul.”
Blessed be the Lord,
Who has not given us as prey to be torn by their teeth.
We have escaped like a bird from the snare of the fowlers;
The trap is broken and we have escaped.
Our help is in the name of the Lord,
Who made heaven and earth.
