Psalm 129
AMPC
129
A Song of Ascents.
1 MANY A time and much have they afflicted me from my youth up–let Israel now say–
2 Many a time and much have they afflicted me from my youth up, yet they have not prevailed against me.
3 The plowers plowed upon my back; they made long their furrows.
4 The Lord is [uncompromisingly] righteous; He has cut asunder the thick cords by which the wicked [enslaved us].
5 Let them all be put to shame and turned backward who hate Zion.
6 Let them be as the grass upon the housetops, which withers before it grows up,
7 With which the mower fills not his hand, nor the binder of sheaves his bosom–
8 While those who go by do not say, The blessing of the Lord be upon you! We bless you in the name of the Lord!
