1 If the Lord had not snatched me up — I do declare —
2 if the Lord had not snatched me up when I was lost in my selfishness,
3 then I would have hurt many more hearts when I gave in to my fleshly desires;
4 then I would have blinded myself to the goodness of God, I would have ignored His voice;
5 then I would have built myself a desolate kingdom.
6 Blessed be the Lord, who has not allowed me to remain self-conceited!
7 I have escaped from myself and all of my complications; I have surrendered, and I have escaped!
8 My sufficiency is found in the name of the Lord, who is my portion and my peace.
