Psalms 129 (asv)

Psalms 129 (asv)

A Song of Ascents.

129:1 Many a time have they afflicted me from my youth up,

Let Israel now say,

129:2Many a time have they afflicted me from my youth up:

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,

All they that hate Zion.

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,

The blessing of Jehovah be upon you;

We bless you in the name of Jehovah.
