Tehillim 124
OJB
124
1If it had not been Hashem Who was lanu (for us, on our side), now may Yisroel say; 2If it had not been Hashem Who was lanu, when adam (man) rose up against us; 3Then they had swallowed us up chayyim (alive); when their wrath was kindled against us; 4Then the mayim would have overwhelmed us, the torrent would have swept over nafsheinu (our nefesh); 5Then the mayim hazedonim (treacherous waters) would have swept over nafsheinu (our nefesh). 6Baruch Hashem, Who hath not given us up as a prey to their shinayim (teeth). 7Nafsheinu (our nefesh) is escaped as a tzippor (bird) out of the pach (snare of the fowlers); the pach is broken, and we are escaped. 8Ezreinu (our help) B'Shem Hashem Oseh Shomayim vaAretz.
