Psalms 129:1-8

A Song of the Ascents. 129  “Long enough they have shown hostility to me from my youth,”+ Let Israel now say,+   “Long enough they have shown hostility to me from my youth;+ Yet they have not prevailed over me.+   Plowmen have plowed upon my very back;+ They have lengthened their furrows.”*   Jehovah is righteous.+ He has cut in pieces the ropes of the wicked ones.+   They will be ashamed and turn themselves back,+ All those hating Zion.+   They will become like green grass of the roofs,+ Which before it has been torn out has dried up,+   With which the reaper has not filled his own hand,+ Nor anyone gathering sheaves his own bosom.   Nor have those passing by said: “The blessing of Jehovah be upon YOU men.+ We have blessed YOU in the name of Jehovah.”+
