Our Help Is in the Name of the Lord
A Song of aAscents. Of David.1 bIf it had not been the Lord who was on our side—
clet Israel now say—
2if it had not been the Lord who was on our side
when people rose up against us,
3then they would have dswallowed us up alive,
when their anger was kindled against us;
4then ethe flood would have fswept us away,
the torrent would have gone gover us;
5then over us would have gone
the raging waters.
6 Blessed be the Lord,
who has not given us
as prey to their teeth!
7We have escaped like a bird
from hthe snare of the fowlers;
the snare is broken,
and we have escaped!
8 iOur help is in the name of the Lord,
who made heaven and earth.
