Psalms



The fifth book of Psalms, song 129, New English Translation

Psalm 129


   A song of ascents.
   1 "Since my youth they have often attacked me," let Israel say.
   2 "Since my youth they have often attacked me, but they have not defeated me.
   3 The plowers plowed my back; they made their furrows long.
   4 The LORD is just; he cut the ropes of the wicked."
   5 May all who hate Zion be humiliated and turned back!
   6 May they be like the grass on the rooftops which withers before one can even pull it up,
   7 which cannot fill the reaper's hand, or the lap of the one who gathers the grain!
   8 Those who pass by will not say, "May you experience the LORD's blessing! We pronounce a blessing on you in the name of the LORD."
