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.
