Psalm 129

1  ‘Many a time have they fought against me from my youth,’ 
   may Israel now say;
2  ‘Many a time have they fought against me from my youth, 
   but they have not prevailed against me.’
3  The ploughers ploughed upon my back 
   and made their furrows long.
4  But the righteous Lord 
   has cut the cords of the wicked in pieces.
5  Let them be put to shame and turned backwards, 
   as many as are enemies of Zion.
6  Let them be like grass upon the housetops, 
   which withers before it can grow,
7  So that no reaper can fill his hand, 
   nor a binder of sheaves his bosom;
8  And none who go by may say,
      ‘The blessing of the Lord be upon you. 
   We bless you in the name of the Lord.’
