Psalm 129

Prayer for the Downfall of Israel’s Enemies

A Song of Ascents.

1

“Often have they attacked me from my youth”

—let Israel now say—

2

“often have they attacked me from my youth,

yet they have not prevailed against me.

3

The plowers plowed on my back;

they made their furrows long.”

4

The Lord is righteous;

he has cut the cords of the wicked.

5

May all who hate Zion

be put to shame and turned backward.

6

Let them be like the grass on the housetops

that withers before it grows up,

7

with which reapers do not fill their hands

or binders of sheaves their arms,

8

while those who pass by do not say,

“The blessing of the Lord be upon you!

We bless you in the name of the Lord!”
