A song of ascents.
If it had not been that the Lord was with us, let now Israel say; if it had not been that the Lord was with us, when men rose up against us; then they had swallowed us up alive.
When their wrath was kindled against us, then the waters had overwhelmed us.
Our soul had passed through the torrent; then had our soul passed through the overwhelming water.
Blessed be the Lord, who hath not given us as a prey to their teeth.
Our soul is delivered, as a sparrow out of the snare of the hunters.
The snare is broken, and we are delivered.
Our help is in the name of the Lord, Who made heaven and earth.
