Psalm 129

Many a time from my youth upward
   have they fought against me :
 now may Israel say,
Many a time from my youth upward
   have they fought against me :
 but they have not prevailed.
They have scored my back as with a ploughshare :
 they have opened long furrows.
But the Lord is righteous :
 and he has cut me free from the thongs of the wicked.
They shall be confounded and turned backward :
 all those who hate Zion.
They shall be as the grass that grows upon the housetops :
 which withers before it comes to any good,
With which no reaper may fill his hand :
 nor the binder of sheaves his bosom.
And none who pass by shall say to them
   ‘The blessing of the Lord be upon you :
 we bless you in the name of the Lord.’
