Psalms 129

 

 

 1 Often have they fought against me from my youth, let Israel now say.

2 Often have they fought against me from my youth: but they could not prevail over me.

3 The wicked have wrought upon my back: they have lengthened their iniquity.

4 The Lord who is just will cut the necks of sinners:

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

6 Let them be as grass on the tops of houses: which withered before it be plucked up:

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

8 And they that have passed by have not said: The blessing of the Lord be upon you: we have blessed you in the name of the Lord.
