Psalm 129

1: Many a time have they afflicted me from my youth, may Israel now say:

2: Many a time have they afflicted me from my youth: yet they have not prevailed against me.

3: The plowers plowed upon my back: they made long their furrows.

4: The LORD is righteous: he hath cut asunder the cords of the wicked.

5: Let them all be confounded and turned back that hate Zion.

6: Let them be as the grass upon the housetops, which withereth afore it groweth up:

7: Wherewith the mower filleth not his hand; nor he that bindeth sheaves his bosom.

8: Neither do they which go by say, The blessing of the LORD be upon you: we bless you in the name of the LORD.


saying "the LORD is righteous"

blessed: the blessing of the LORD is upon me
