|Psalms 129 |
1 Many times have they afflicted me from my youth, may Israel now say.
2 Many time have they afflicted me from my youth; yet they have not prevailed against me.
3 The plowers plowed upon my back; they made long their furrows.
4 The LORD is righteous; he has cut asunder the cords of the wicked.
5 Let them all be confounded and turned back who hate Zion.
6 Let them be as the grass upon the housetops, which withers before it grows up;
7 With which the mower does not fill his hand; nor he who binds sheaves, fill his bosom.
8 Neither do those who go by say, "The blessing of the LORD be upon you; we bless you in the name of the LORD."
