Chapter 129

Against Israel's Enemies

1A song of ascents.

I

Much have they oppressed me from my youth, now let Israel say. s Ps 124, 1 . 2Much have they oppressed me from my youth, t Ps 118, 13 . yet they have not prevailed. 3Upon my back the plowers plowed, as they traced their long furrows. u Is 51, 23 . 4But the just LORD cut me free from the ropes of the yoke of the wicked.*

II

5May they be scattered in disgrace, all who hate Zion. 6May they be like grass on the rooftops* withered in early growth, v Is 37, 27 . 7Never to fill the reaper's hands, nor the arms of the binders of sheaves, 8With none passing by to call out: “The blessing of the LORD be upon you!* We bless you in the name of the LORD!” w Ps 118, 26 .
