Bible: Psalm 129

Psalm 129 1 

129:1 A song of ascents. 2 

“Since my youth they have often attacked me,”

let Israel say.

129:2Since my youth they have often attacked me,

but they have not defeated me.

129:3 The plowers plowed my back;

they made their furrows long.

129:4 The Lord is just;

he cut the ropes of the wicked.” 3 

129:5 May all who hate Zion

be humiliated and turned back!

129:6 May they be like the grass on the rooftops

which withers before one can even pull it up, 4 

129:7 which cannot fill the reaper’s hand,

or the lap of the one who gathers the grain!

129:8 Those who pass by will not say, 5 

“May you experience the Lord’s blessing!

We pronounce a blessing on you in the name of the Lord.”
