Chapter 129

1


 

  A Song of the going up.
Great have been my troubles from the time when I was young (let Israel now say);  

 

 


2


 

  Great have been my troubles from the time when I was young, but my troubles have not overcome me.  

 

 


3


 

  The ploughmen were ploughing on my back; long were the wounds they made.  

 

 


4


 

  The Lord is true: the cords of the evil-doers are broken in two.  

 

 


5


 

  Let all the haters of Zion be shamed and turned back.  

 

 


6


 

  Let them be like the grass on the house-tops, which is dry before it comes to full growth.  

 

 


7


 

  He who gets in the grain has no use for it; and they do not make bands of it for the grain-stems.  

 

 


8


 

  And those who go by do not say, The blessing of the Lord be on you; we give you blessing in the name of the Lord.
