The Psalms

Praise for Deliverance from Enemies
A Song of degrees of David.

1  If it had not been the LORD who was on our side,
now may Israel say;
2  If it had not been the LORD who was on our side,
when men rose up against us:
3  then they had swallowed us up quick,
when their wrath was kindled against us:
4  then the waters had overwhelmed us,
the stream had gone over our soul:
5  then the proud waters had gone over our soul.
6  Blessed be the LORD,
who hath not given us as a prey to their teeth.
7  Our soul is escaped as a bird
out of the snare of the fowlers:
the snare is broken, and we are escaped.
8  Our help is in the name of the LORD,
who made heaven and earth.
