A Song of Degrees. Of David
1 |But for Jehovah who was on our side| -- Say now may Israel:
2 |But for Jehovah who was on our side, |When men rose up against us;
3 |Then alive had they swallowed us up, |When kindled was their wrath against us;
4 |Then the waters had overwhelmed us, |The torrent had gone over our soul:
5 |Then had gone over our soul the proud waters.|
6 Blessed be Jehovah, Who gave us not for a prey to their teeth.
7 Our soul as a bird, hath been rescued from the snare of the fowlers; The snare hath been broken, and we have been delivered.
8 Our help is in the name of Jehovah, Who made heaven and earth.
