Psalm 129

1 “They have pressed me hard from my youth,”

 let Israel sing.

 2 “They have pressed me hard from my youth,

 but could never overcome me.

3 The plowmen plowed my back,

 drawing long furrows.

 4 Yet the LORD, who is just, has destroyed

 the yoke of the wicked.”

5 Let them be shamed and routed,

 all those who hate Sion!

 6 Let them be like grass on the roof,

 that withers before it flowers.

7 With that no reaper fills his hands,

 no binder of sheaves his arms.

 8 And those passing by will not say,

 “The blessing of the LORD be upon you!”

 We bless you in the name of the LORD!
