Blessing for miraculous deliverance
||If it had not been the Lord who was on our side, now may Israel say;
||If it had not been the Lord who was on our side, when men rose up against us:
||Then they had swallowed us up quick, when their wrath was kindled against us:
||Then the waters had overwhelmed us, the stream had gone over our soul:
||Then the proud waters had gone over our soul.
||Blessed be the Lord, who hath not given us as a prey to their teeth.
||Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers: the snare is broken, and we are escaped.
||Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth.
