(English translation got from website: https://www.chabad.org/library/bible_cdo )

  1. A song of ascents. Of David. Had it not been for the Lord Who was with us, let Israel declare now.
  2. Had it not been for the Lord Who was with us when men rose up against us,
  3. Then they would have swallowed us raw when their anger was kindled against us.
  4. Then the waters would have washed us away; illness would have passed over our soul.
  5. Then the wicked waters would have passed over our soul.
  6. Blessed is the Lord, Who did not give us as prey for their teeth.
  7. Our soul escaped like a bird from the hunters’ snare; the snare broke, and we escaped.
  8. Our help is in the name of the Lord, Who made heaven and earth.
