Bible passage Psalm 129

Psalm 129

A song of ascents.
 1 They have greatly oppressed me from my youth—
       let Israel say-

 2 they have greatly oppressed me from my youth,
       but they have not gained the victory over me.

 3 Plowmen have plowed my back
       and made their furrows long.

 4 But the LORD is righteous;
       he has cut me free from the cords of the wicked.

 5 May all who hate Zion
       be turned back in shame.

 6 May they be like grass on the roof,
       which withers before it can grow;

 7 with it the reaper cannot fill his hands,
       nor the one who gathers fill his arms.

 8 May those who pass by not say,
       "The blessing of the LORD be upon you;
       we bless you in the name of the LORD."
