1: 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!
