Psalms 129 - NIV

A 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.

3 Plowmen have plowed my back
and made their furrows long.

4 But the Lord is righteous;
he has cut me free from the cords of the wicked.”


May all who hate Zion
be turned back in shame.

6 May they be like grass on the roof,
which withers before it can grow;

7 a reaper cannot fill his hands with it,
nor one who gathers fill his arms.

8 May those who pass by not say to them,
“The blessing of the Lord be on you;
we bless you in the name of the Lord.”
