God, the Rescuer of the People

1A song of ascents. Of David.

I

Had not the LORD been with us, let Israel say, y Ps 129, 1 . 2Had not the LORD been with us, when people rose against us, 3They would have swallowed us alive, z Prv 1, 12 . for their fury blazed against us. 4The waters would have engulfed us, the torrent overwhelmed us; a Pss 18, 5; 69, 2 . 5seething waters would have drowned us.

II

6Blessed be the LORD, who did not leave us to be torn by their fangs. 7We escaped with our lives like a bird from the fowler's snare; the snare was broken and we escaped. 8Our help is the name* of the LORD, the maker of heaven and earth. b Pss 121, 2; 146, 6 .
