Psalm 129
NASB 1995 Par ▾ 
Prayer for the Overthrow of Zion’s Enemies.

A Song of Ascents.

1“Many times they have persecuted me from my youth up,”
            Let Israel now say,

      2“Many times they have persecuted me from my youth up;
            Yet they have not prevailed against me.

      3“The plowers plowed upon my back;
            They lengthened their furrows.”

      4The LORD is righteous;
            He has cut in two the cords of the wicked.

      5May all who hate Zion
            Be put to shame and turned backward;

      6Let them be like grass upon the housetops,
            Which withers before it grows up;

      7With which the reaper does not fill his hand,
            Or the binder of sheaves his bosom;

      8Nor do those who pass by say,
            “The blessing of the LORD be upon you;
            We bless you in the name of the LORD.”
