Our Help Is in the Name of the Lord
A Song of Ascents. Of David.
1If 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 people rose up against us,
3then they would have swallowed us up alive,
when their anger was kindled against us;
4then the flood would have swept us away,
the torrent would have gone over us;
5then over us would have gone
the raging waters.
6Blessed be the Lord,
who has not given us
as prey to their teeth!
7We have escaped like a bird
from the snare of the fowlers;
the snare is broken,
and we have escaped!
8Our help is in the name of the Lord,
who made heaven and earth.
