1 The song of degrees of David. Israel say now, No but for the Lord was in us;
2no but for the Lord was in us. When men rose up against us;
3in hap they had swallowed us quick. When the strong vengeance of them was wroth against us;
4in hap water had swallowed us up. Our soul passed through a strand [or stream];
5in hap our soul had passed through a water unsufferable.
6Blessed be the Lord; that gave not us into taking [or catching] of the teeth of them.
7Our soul, as a sparrow, is delivered; from the snare of hunters. The snare is all-broken; and we be delivered.
8Our help is in the name of the Lord; that made heaven and earth.
