'If it had not been YHWH who was on our side,' Let Yisra'el now say;
'If it had not been YHWH who was on our side, When men rose up against us,
'Then they would have swallowed us alive, In their burning rage against us;
'Then the waters would have overwhelmed us, The stream would have gone over our being;
'Then the proud waters Would have gone over our being.'
Blessed be YHWH, Who did not give us as prey to their teeth.
Our being has escaped like a bird From the snare of the trappers; The snare was broken, and we have escaped.
Our help is in the Name of YHWH, Maker of the heavens and earth.
