Identify the verbal in this sentence as infinitive, gerund or participle.

They cried, but there was none to save them: even unto the LORD, but he answered them not. (Psalm 8:41)

I chose infinitive because "to save them" looks like an infinitive that functions as an adjective. I'm not sure if I'm right.
Thank you for your help in advance.

  1. You're right.

    These are verbs with subjects: cried, was, answered. The only other verb form in the sentence is to save which is clearly an infinitive.
