JPS Tanakh 1917
1A Song of Ascents; of David.
‘If it had not been the LORD who was for us’,
Let Israel now say;
2‘If it had not been the LORD who was for us,
When men rose up against us,
3Then they had swallowed us up alive,
When their wrath was kindled against us;
4Then the waters had overwhelmed us,
The stream had gone over our soul;
5Then the proud waters
Had gone over our soul.’
6Blessed be the LORD,
Who hath not given us as a prey to their teeth.
7Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers;
The snare is broken, and we are escaped.
8Our help is in the name of the LORD,
Who made heaven and earth.
