Psalm 129

“Many a time they have afflicted me from my youth,” Let Israel now say—
2 “Many a time they have afflicted me from my youth; yet they have not prevailed against me.
3 The ploughers ploughed on my back; they made their furrows long.”
4 The Lord is righteous; He has cut in pieces the cords of the wicked.
5 Let all those who hate Zion be put to shame and turned back.
6 Let them be as the grass on the housetops, which withers before it grows up,
7 With which the reaper does not fill his hand, nor he who binds sheaves, his arms.
8 Neither let those who pass by them say, “The blessing of the Lord be upon you;
We bless you in the name of the Lord!”
