International Standard Version
1If the LORD had not been on our side— let Israel now say—
2if the LORD had not been on our side, when men came against us,
3then they would have devoured us alive, when their anger burned against us.
4Then the flood waters would have overwhelmed us, the torrent would have flooded over us;
5the swollen waters would have swept us away.
6Blessed be the LORD, who did not give us as prey to their teeth.
7We have escaped like a bird from the hunter's trap. The trap has been broken, and we have escaped.
8Our help is in the name of the LORD, the maker of heaven and earth.
