1 If it had not been, Yahweh, who was on our side, oh might Israel say:
2 If it had not been, Yahweh, who was on our side, when men rose up against us,
3 Then, alive, had they swallowed us up, in the glow of their anger against us;
4 Then, the waters, had whelmed us, the torrent, gone over our soul;
5 Then, had gone over our soul the waters so proud!
6 Blessed, be Yahweh, who gave us not as prey to their teeth.
7 Our soul, as a bird, hath escaped from the snare of the fowlers, The snare, is broken, and, we, are escaped:
8 Our help, is in the Name of Yahweh, who made heaven and earth.
