Psalm 129
“Often have they afflicted me from my youth”— *
let Israel now say—
“Often have they afflicted me from my youth, *
yet they have not prevailed against me.
The plowers plowed upon my back; *
they made their furrows long.”
The LORD is righteous; *
he has cut in two the cords of the wicked.
Let all all who hate Zion *
be put to shame and turned backward!
Let them be like grass on the housetops, *
which withers before it can grow up,
With which the reaper does not fill his hand *
nor the binder of sheaves his arms.
Nor let those who pass by them say, *
“The blessing of the LORD be upon you!
We bless you in the name of the LORD!”
