Psalm 129

A song for those journeying to worship.

This is not the first time my enemies assaulted me;
    they have often attacked me since I was young.”
So let Israel now proclaim,
This is not the first time my enemies assaulted me;
    they have attacked me since I was young,
    and yet they have not been able to overpower me.
The plowers plowed over me;
    they plowed their furrows deep and long down my back.”
The Eternal is just.
    He’s severed the bindings of the wicked so they can’t hurt me anymore.
May all who despise Zion
    hang their heads in shame.
    May all who despise Zion recoil and run away.
Let them grow like grass upon rooftops
    that withers and dies in the sun long before it has time to grow,
Unfit to be harvested by the worker,
    not worthy of the effort to carry off to the binder.
Unwanted, uncared for—no passersby to greet them, no one to say,
    “May the favor of the Eternal be upon you;
We bless you in His name.”
