129 (Shir HaMa’alot) Many a time have they afflicted me from my ne’ur, may Yisroel now say;

Many a time have they afflicted me from my ne’ur (youth); yet they have not prevailed against me.

The choreshim (plowers) plowed upon my back; they made long their furrows.

Hashem is tzaddik; He hath cut asunder the cords of the resha’im.

Let them all be confounded and turned back that hate Tziyon [i.e, all anti-Semites].

Let them be as the khatzir (grass) upon the housetops, which withereth before it groweth up;

With it the kotzer (reaper) filleth not his yad; nor he that gathereth sheaves, his bosom.

Neither do they which go by say, Birkat Hashem be upon you; we bless you b’Shem Hashem.
