English translation got from website: https://www.chabad.org/library/bible_cdo
- A song of ascents. Of David. Had it not been for the Lord Who was with us, let Israel declare now.
- Had it not been for the Lord Who was with us when men rose up against us,
- Then they would have swallowed us raw when their anger was kindled against us.
- Then the waters would have washed us away; illness would have passed over our soul.
- Then the wicked waters would have passed over our soul.
- Blessed is the Lord, Who did not give us as prey for their teeth.
- Our soul escaped like a bird from the hunters’ snare; the snare broke, and we escaped.
- Our help is in the name of the Lord, Who made heaven and earth.
