Psalms 129

A song for pilgrims ascending to Jerusalem.
 1  From my earliest youth my enemies have persecuted me.
  Let all Israel repeat this:
 2  From my earliest youth my enemies have persecuted me,
  but they have never defeated me.
 3  My back is covered with cuts,
  as if a farmer had plowed long furrows.
 4  But the LORD is good; he has cut me free from the ropes of the ungodly.  5  May all who hate Jerusalem [5] 
  be turned back in shameful defeat.
 6  May they be as useless as grass on a rooftop,
  turning yellow when only half grown,
 7  ignored by the harvester,
  despised by the binder.
 8  And may those who pass by
  refuse to give them this blessing:
"The LORD bless you;
  we bless you in the LORD's name."
<<  129:5 Hebrew Zion.
