"If is had not been the LORD who was on our side,
let Israel now say,
If it had not been the LORD who was on our side
when people rose up against us,
then they would have swept us away,
the torrent would have gone over us;
then over us would have gone the raging waters.
Blessed be the LORD,
who has not given us as prey to their teeth!
We have escaped like a bird
from the snare of fowlers;
the snare is broken and we have escaped!
Our help is in the name of the LORD,
who made heaven and earth"
If it were not for the grace of God, we would be goners.
