Psalm 129. Saepe expugnaverunt.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Traditional - Twenty-seventh Day - Evening Prayer.
  1. MANY a time have they fought against me from my youth up, *
    may Israel now say;
  2. Yea, many a time have they vexed me from my youth up; *
    but they have not prevailed against me.
  3. The plowers plowed upon my back, *
    and made long furrows.
  4. But the righteous Lord *
    hath hewn the snares of the ungodly in pieces.
  5. Let them be confounded and turned backward, *
    as many as have evil will at Sion.
  6. Let them be even as the grass upon the housetops, *
    which withereth afore it be grown up;
  7. Whereof the mower filleth not his hand, *
    neither he that bindeth up the sheaves his bosom.
  8. So that they who go by say not so much as, The Lord prosper you; *
    we wish you good luck in the Name of the Lord.
