Praise for Rescue from Enemies.
A Song of Ascents, of David.
1 Had it not been the LORD who was on our side, Let Israel now say,
2 Had it not been the LORD who was on our side When men rose up against us,
3 Then they would have swallowed us alive, When their anger was kindled against us;
4 Then the waters would have engulfed us, The stream would have swept over our soul;
5 Then the raging waters would have swept over our soul.
6 Blessed be the LORD, Who has not given us to be torn by their teeth.
7 Our soul has escaped as a bird out of the snare of the trapper; The snare is broken and we have escaped.
8 Our help is in the name of the LORD, Who made heaven and earth.
