Webster Bible Translation
Our Help is in the Name of the Lord
1A Song of degrees of David. If it had not been the LORD who was on our side, now may Israel say;
2If it had not been the LORD who was on our side, when men rose up against us:
3Then they had swallowed us up quick, when their wrath was kindled against us:
4Then the waters had overwhelmed us, the stream had gone over our soul:
5Then the proud waters had gone over our soul.
6Blessed be the LORD, who hath not given us as a prey to their teeth.
7Our soul hath escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers: the snare is broken, and we have escaped.
8Our help is in the name of the LORD, who made heaven and earth.
