1 A Song of Ascents. By David. If it had not been Yahweh who was on our side, let Israel now say,
2 if it had not been Yahweh who was on our side, when men rose up against us;
3 then they would have swallowed us up alive, when their wrath was kindled against us;
4 then the waters would have overwhelmed us, the stream would have gone over our soul;
5 then the proud waters would have gone over our soul.
6 Blessed be Yahweh, who has not given us as a prey to their teeth.
7 Our soul has escaped like a bird out of the fowler’s snare. The snare is broken, and we have escaped.
8 Our help is in Yahweh’s name, who made heaven and earth.
Job Proverbs Ecclesiastes
