New American Standard Version

Psalm 129

Prayer for the Overthrow of Zion's Enemies.

A Song of Ascents.

1 "Many [fn] times they have persecuted [fn] me from my youth up," Let Israel now say,
2 "Many [fn] times they have persecuted [fn] me from my youth up; Yet they have not prevailed against me.
3 "The plowers plowed upon my back; They lengthened their furrows."
4 The Lord is righteous; He has cut in two the cords of the wicked.

5 May all who hate Zion Be put to shame and turned backward;
6 Let them be like grass upon the housetops, Which withers before it grows [fn] up;
7 With which the reaper does not fill his hand [fn], Or the binder of sheaves his bosom;
8 Nor do those who pass by say, "The blessing of the Lord be upon you; We bless you in the name of the Lord."
