Psalms - Chapter 129 | New King James Version

  • 1. A Song of Ascents. "Many a time they have afflicted me from my youth," Let Israel now say--
  • 2. "Many a time they have afflicted me from my youth; Yet they have not prevailed against me.
  • 3. The plowers plowed on my back; They made their furrows long."
  • 4. The Lord is righteous; He has cut in pieces the cords of the wicked.
  • 5. Let all those who hate Zion Be put to shame and turned back.
  • 6. Let them be as the grass on the housetops, Which withers before it grows up,
  • 7. With which the reaper does not fill his hand, Nor he who binds sheaves, his arms.
  • 8. Neither let those who pass by them say, "The blessing of the Lord be upon you; We bless you in the name of the Lord!"
