A song of ascents. Of David.1 “Had it not been the Lord who was for us”
let Israel say
2 “Had it not been the Lord who was for us
when enemies rose against us,
3 then alive they’d have swallowed us up,
when their anger was kindled against us.
4 Then the waters would’ve swept us away,
and the torrent passed over us clean:
5 then most sure would’ve passed over us clean
the wild seething waters.”
6 Blest be the Lord who has given us not
to be torn by their teeth.
7 We are like a bird just escaped
from the snare of the fowler.
The snare is broken,
and we are escaped.
8 Our help is the name of the Lord,
the Creator of heaven and earth.
