Book V

Praise for Rescue from Enemies
 
 
A Song of Ascents; of David.
 
 
[1]  IF it had not been Jehovah who was on our side,
Let Israel now say,
[2]  If it had not been Jehovah who was on our side,
When men rose up against us;
[3]  Then they had swallowed us up alive,
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 Jehovah,
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 Jehovah,
Who made heaven and earth.
