Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 129:1 - A song for pilgrims ascending to Jerusalem.

From my earliest youth my enemies have persecuted me.
Let all Israel repeat this:
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 129:2 - From my earliest youth my enemies have persecuted me,
but they have never defeated me.
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 129:3 - My back is covered with cuts,
as if a farmer had plowed long furrows.
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 129:4 - But the LORD is good;
he has cut me free from the ropes of the ungodly.
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 129:5 - May all who hate Jerusalem[fn]
be turned back in shameful defeat.
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 129:6 - May they be as useless as grass on a rooftop,
turning yellow when only half grown,
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 129:7 - ignored by the harvester,
despised by the binder.
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 129:8 - And may those who pass by
refuse to give them this blessing:
“The LORD bless you;
we bless you in the LORD’s name.”
