Psalm 129 New International Version

A Prayer for the Overthrow of Zion's Enemies

129 "They have greatly oppressed me from my youth," let Israel say; 2  "they have greatly oppressed me from my youth, but they have not gained the victory over me. 3  Plowmen have plowed my back and made their furrows long. 4  But the Lord is righteous; he has cut me free from the cords of the wicked."

5  May all who hate Zion be turned back in shame. 6  May they be like grass on the roof, which withers before it can grow; 7  a reaper cannot fill his hands with it, nor one who gathers fill his arms. 8  May those who pass by not say to them, "The blessing of the Lord be on you; we bless you in the name of the Lord."
