PSALM 129

« Psalm 128 | Psalm 129 | Psalm 130 »

They Have Afflicted Me from My Youth
A Song of Ascents.
129:1
“Greatly have they afflicted me from my youth”—
let Israel now say—
2
“Greatly 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 the cords of the wicked.
5
May all who hate Zion
be put to shame and turned backward!
6
Let them be like the grass on the housetops,
which withers before it grows up,
7
with which the reaper does not fill his hand
nor the binder of sheaves his arms,
8
nor do those who pass by say,
“The blessing of the Lord be upon you!
We bless you in the name of the Lord!”
