A song of ascents. Of David.
1If The Lord had not been on our side—
let Israel say—
2if The Lord had not been on our side
when people attacked us,
3they would have swallowed us alive
when their anger flared against us;
4the flood would have engulfed us,
the torrent would have swept over us,
5the raging waters
would have swept us away.
6Praise Be To The Lord,
Who Has Not Let us be torn by their teeth.
7We have escaped like a bird
from the fowler’s snare;
the snare has been broken,
and we have escaped.
8Our help Is In The Name of The Lord,
The Maker of heaven and earth.
GOD Allows sometimes the enemies of His people sometimes to prevail very far against them, that His Power May Be Seen the more in their deliverance. Blessed are the people whose GOD Is JEHOVAH, GOD of all-sufficiency. Besides applying this to any particular deliverance done in our days and the ancient times, we should have in our thoughts the Great Work of Redemption by JESUS CHRIST, by Whom believers were rescued from satan, our great enemy.
