Psalms 129

1

  A Song of the Ascents. Often they distressed me from my youth, Pray, let Israel say:

2

  Often they distressed me from my youth, Yet they have not prevailed over me.

3

  Over my back have ploughers ploughed, They have made long their furrows.

4

  Jehovah [is] righteous, He hath cut asunder cords of the wicked.

5

  Confounded and turn backward do all hating Zion.

6

  They are as grass of the roofs, That before it was drawn out withereth,

7

  That hath not filled the hand of a reaper, And the bosom of a binder of sheaves.

8

  And the passers by have not said, `The blessing of Jehovah [is] on you, We blessed you in the Name of Jehovah!`
