|[A Song of Ascents.]|
|"Sorely have they afflicted me from my youth," |
let Israel now say -
|Trust in God. Psalm 129(v128)|
|"Sorely have they afflicted me from my youth, |
yet they have not prevailed against me.
|The plowers plowed upon my back; |
they made long their furrows."
|The LORD is righteous; |
he has cut the cords of the wicked.
|May all who hate Zion |
be put to shame and turned backward!
|Let them be like the grass on the housetops, |
which withers before it grows up,
|with which the reaper does not fill his hand |
or the binder of sheaves his bosom,
|while those who pass by do not say, |
"The blessing of the LORD be upon you!
We bless you in the name of the LORD!"
|<< | Psalms: 129 | >>|
