Psalms 129 (asv)
A Song of Ascents.
Let Israel now say,
Yet they have not prevailed against me.
129:3The plowers plowed upon my back;
They made long their furrows.
129:4Jehovah is righteous:
He hath cut asunder the cords of the wicked.
129:5Let them be put to shame and turned backward,
129:6Let them be as the grass upon the housetops,
Which withereth before it groweth up;
129:7Wherewith the reaper filleth not his hand,
Nor he that bindeth sheaves his bosom.
129:8Neither do they that go by say,
