Psalm 129

1“Often have they attacked me from my youth” —let Israel now say—

2“often have they attacked me from my youth, yet they have not prevailed against me.

3The plowers plowed on my back; they made their furrows long.”

4The Lord is righteous; he has cut the cords of the wicked.

5May all who hate Zion be put to shame and turned backward.

6Let them be like the grass on the housetops that withers before it grows up,

7with which reapers do not fill their hands or binders of sheaves their arms,

8while those who pass by do not say, “The blessing of the Lord be upon you! We bless you in the name of the Lord!”
