A Song of Ascents, of David.
1 “aHad it not been the Lord who was on our side,”
bLet Israel now say,
When men rose up against us,
3 Then they would have aswallowed us alive,
When their banger was kindled against us;
4 Then the awaters would have engulfed us,
The stream would have 1swept over our soul;
The snare is broken and we have escaped.
8 Our ahelp is in the name of the Lord,
Who bmade heaven and earth.
