Psalm 54

Thanksgiving for Deliverance

 

1 If it had not been the Lord who was on our side,

   let Israel now say—

2 if it had not been the Lord who was on our side,

   when men rose up against us,

3 then they would have swallowed us up alive,

   when their anger was kindled against us;

4 then the flood would have swept us away,

   the torrent would have gone over us;

5 then over us would have gone

   the raging waters.

6 Blessed be the Lord,

   who has not given us

   as prey to their teeth!

Psalm 54 Thanksgiving for Deliverance

7 We have escaped as a bird

   from the snare of the fowlers;

the snare is broken,

   and we have escaped!

8 Our help is in the name of the Lord,

   who made heaven and earth.

– Psalm 54
