English Revised Version
Our Help is in the Name of the Lord
1A Song of Ascents; of David. If it had not been the LORD who was on our side, let Israel now say;
2If it had not been the LORD who was on our side, 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.
