The cords of death entangled me; the torrents of destruction overwhelmed me.
He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand.
Deep calls to deep in the roar of your waterfalls; all your waves and breakers have swept over me.
Rescue me from the mire, do not let me sink; deliver me from those who hate me, from the deep waters.
the flood would have engulfed us, the torrent would have swept over us,
