Psalm 129

129
They Have Afflicted Me from My Youth
A Song of #[See Ps. 120, title]Ascents.
1“Greatly#129:1 Or Often; also verse 2 have they #[Ex. 1:14; Judg. 3:8, 14; 4:3; 6:2; 10:8] afflicted me #Isa. 47:12; Jer. 2:2; 22:21; Hos. 2:15 from my youth”—
# Ps. 124:1 let Israel now say—
2“Greatly have they #[See ver. 1 above] afflicted me #[See ver. 1 above] from my youth,
# [2 Cor. 4:8-10] yet they have not prevailed against me.
3 # Mic. 3:12 The plowers plowed #[Isa. 50:6; 51:23]upon my back;
they made long their furrows.”
4The Lord is righteous;
he has cut #Ps. 2:3the cords of the wicked.
5May all who hate Zion
be #See Ps. 35:4put to shame and turned backward!
6Let them be like #2 Kgs. 19:26; Isa. 37:27 the grass on the housetops,
which #Ps. 37:2; Job 8:12withers before it grows up,
7with which the reaper does not fill his hand
nor the binder of sheaves his arms,
8nor do those who pass by say,
# Ruth 2:4 “The blessing of the Lord be upon you!
We #Ps. 118:26bless you in the name of the Lord!”
