it had not been Jehovah who was on our side,
Let Israel say,
If it had not been Jehovah who was on our side
When men rose up against us;
Then they would have swallowed us up alive
When their anger burned against us;
Then the waters would have washed us away;
The stream would have passed over our soul;
Then the 1proud
Would have passed over our soul.
Blessed be Jehovah, who has not given us
As prey to their teeth.
Our soul has escaped like a bird,
Out of the snare of the fowlers;
The snare is broken,
And we have escaped.
is in the name of Jehovah,
Who made heaven and earth.
