The fifth book of Psalms, song 129, Vulgate and King James Version

Psalm 129


   1 Canticum ascensionum. Saepe expugnaverunt me a iuventute mea, dicat nunc Israel,
   2 saepe expugnaverunt me a iuventute mea, etenim non potuerunt adversum me.
   3 Supra dorsum meum araverunt aratores, prolongaverunt sulcos suos.
   4 Dominus autem iustus concidit cervices peccatorum.
   5 Confundantur et convertantur retrorsum omnes, qui oderunt Sion.
   6 Fiant sicut fenum tectorum, quod, priusquam evellatur, exaruit;
   7 de quo non implevit manum suam, qui metit, et sinum suum, qui manipulos colligit.
   8 Et non dixerunt, qui praeteribant: "Benedictio Domini super vos, benedicimus vobis in nomine Domini".

King James Version

   A Song of degrees.
   1 Many a time have they afflicted me from my youth, may Israel now say:
   2 Many a time 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 hath cut asunder the cords of the wicked.
   5 Let them all be confounded and turned back that hate Zion.
   6 Let them be as the grass upon the housetops, which withereth afore it groweth up:
   7 Wherewith the mower filleth not his hand; nor he that bindeth sheaves his bosom.
   8 Neither do they which go by say, The blessing of the LORD be upon you: we bless you in the name of the LORD.
