1 If the Eternal had not been with us— sing, Israel, sing— 2 If He had not been with us when the villains came for us, 3 When their anger flamed around us, they would have swallowed us up alive! 4 Their hatred was like a flood: the waters were rising and would have engulfed us; the streams were rushing past and would have overcome us. 5 The furious waters would have broken over us. Battered and overwhelmed, we surely would have drowned!

8 Our help has come in the name of the Eternal, the Maker of heaven and earth!
