Psalm 129 1A song of ascents. “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.
3Plowmen have plowed my back and made their furrows long.
4But the LORD is righteous; he has cut me free from the cords of the wicked.”
5May all who hate Zion be turned back in shame.
6May they be like grass on the roof, which withers before it can grow;
