 Psalms << Ps : 128 >>The Septuagint (Brenton)

1 Ὠιδὴ τῶν ἀναβαθμῶν.

Πλεονάκις ἐπολέμησάν με ἐκ νεότητός μου,
εἰπάτω δὴ Ισραηλ,

Prayer against Israel's Enemies. Psalm 129(v128)A Song of Degrees.
Many a time have they warred against me from my youth
let Israel now say:
2 πλεονάκις ἐπολέμησάν με ἐκ νεότητός μου,
καὶ γὰρ οὐκ ἠδυνήθησάν μοι.
 Many a time have they warred against me from my youth:
and yet they prevailed not against me.
3 ἐπὶ τοῦ νώτου μου ἐτέκταινον οἱ ἁμαρτωλοί,
ἐμάκρυναν τὴν ἀνομίαν αὐτῶν·
 The sinners wrought upon my back:
they prolonged their iniquity.
4 Κύριος δίκαιος συνέκοψεν αὐχένας ἁμαρτωλῶν.
 The righteous Lord has cut asunder the necks of sinners.
5 αἰσχυνθήτωσαν καὶ ἀποστραφήτωσαν εἰς τὰ ὀπίσω πάντες οἱ μισοῦντες Σιων.
 Let all that hate Sion be put to shame and turned back.
6 γενηθήτωσαν ὡς χόρτος δωμάτων,
ὃς πρὸ τοῦ ἐκσπασθῆναι ἐξηράνθη·
 Let them be as the grass of the house-tops,
which withers before it is plucked up.
7 οὗ οὐκ ἐπλήρωσεν τὴν χεῖρα αὐτοῦ ὁ θερίζων,
καὶ τὸν κόλπον αὐτοῦ ὁ τὰ δράγματα συλλέγων,
 Wherewith the reaper fills not his hand,
nor he that makes up the sheaves, his bosom.
8 καὶ οὐκ εἶπαν οἱ παράγοντες Εὐλογία Κυρίου ἐφ' ὑμᾶς,
εὐλογήκαμεν ὑμᾶς ἐν ὀνόματι κυρίου.
 Neither do they that go by say, The blessing of the Lord be upon you:
we have blessed you in the name of the Lord.
    << | Ps: 128 | >>
