A Song of the Ascents, by David.
Save [for] Jehovah — who hath been for us, (Pray, let Israel say),
2
Save [for] Jehovah — who hath been for us, In the rising up of man against us,
3
Then alive they had swallowed us up, In the burning of their anger against us,
4
Then the waters had overflowed us, The stream passed over our soul,
5
Then passed over our soul had the proud waters.
6
Blessed [is] Jehovah who hath not given us, A prey to their teeth.
7
Our soul as a bird hath escaped from a snare of fowlers, The snare was broken, and we have escaped.
8
Our help [is] in the name of Jehovah, Maker of the heavens and earth!
