Our Help is in the Name of the Lord

NIVESVNASBKJVHCSB
1A song of ascents. Of David. If the LORD had not been on our side-- let Israel say--1If it had not been the LORD who was on our side— let Israel now say—1A Song of Ascents, of David. "Had it not been the LORD who was on our side," Let Israel now say,1A Song of degrees of David. If it had not been the LORD who was on our side, now may Israel say;1A Davidic song of ascents. If the LORD had not been on our side-- let Israel say--
2if the LORD had not been on our side when people attacked us,2if it had not been the LORD who was on our side when people rose up against us,2"Had it not been the LORD who was on our side When men rose up against us,2If it had not been the LORD who was on our side, when men rose up against us:2If the LORD had not been on our side when men attacked us,
3they would have swallowed us alive when their anger flared against us;3then they would have swallowed us up alive, when their anger was kindled against us;3Then they would have swallowed us alive, When their anger was kindled against us;3Then they had swallowed us up quick, when their wrath was kindled against us:3then they would have swallowed us alive in their burning anger against us.
4the flood would have engulfed us, the torrent would have swept over us,4then the flood would have swept us away, the torrent would have gone over us;4Then the waters would have engulfed us, The stream would have swept over our soul;4Then the waters had overwhelmed us, the stream had gone over our soul:4Then the waters would have engulfed us; the torrent would have swept over us;

5the raging waters would have swept us away.5then over us would have gone the raging waters.5Then the raging waters would have swept over our soul."5Then the proud waters had gone over our soul.5the raging waters would have swept over us.
6Praise be to the LORD, who has not let us be torn by their teeth.6Blessed be the LORD, who has not given us as prey to their teeth!6Blessed be the LORD, Who has not given us to be torn by their teeth.6Blessed be the LORD, who hath not given us as a prey to their teeth.6Praise the LORD, who has not let us be ripped apart by their teeth.
7We have escaped like a bird from the fowler's snare; the snare has been broken, and we have escaped.7We have escaped like a bird from the snare of the fowlers; the snare is broken, and we have escaped!7Our soul has escaped as a bird out of the snare of the trapper; The snare is broken and we have escaped.7Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers: the snare is broken, and we are escaped.7We have escaped like a bird from the hunter's net; the net is torn, and we have escaped.
8Our help is in the name of the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.8Our help is in the name of the LORD, who made heaven and earth.8Our help is in the name of the LORD, Who made heaven and earth.8Our help is in the name of the LORD, who made heaven and earth.8Our help is in the name of Yahweh, the Maker of heaven and earth.
