Psalm 129 Jubilee Bible 2000 (JUB)

A Song of degrees.

129 ¶ Many a time have they afflicted me from my youth, may Israel now say:

Many a time have they afflicted me from my youth; yet they have not prevailed against me.

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

The LORD is righteous; he has cut asunder the cords of the wicked.

¶ All those that hate Zion shall all be confounded and turned back.

They shall be as the grass upon the housetops, which withers before it grows up,

with which the reaper does not fill his hand nor he that binds sheaves his bosom.

Neither did those who go by say, The blessing of the LORD be upon you; we bless you in the name of the LORD.

Psalm 129 New International Version (NIV)

Psalm 129

A song of ascents.

“They have greatly oppressed me from my youth,”
    let Israel say;
“they have greatly oppressed me from my youth,
    but they have not gained the victory over me.
Plowmen have plowed my back
    and made their furrows long.
But the Lord is righteous;
    he has cut me free from the cords of the wicked.”

May all who hate Zion
    be turned back in shame.
May they be like grass on the roof,
    which withers before it can grow;
a reaper cannot fill his hands with it,
    nor one who gathers fill his arms.
May those who pass by not say to them,
    “The blessing of the Lord be on you;
    we bless you in the name of the Lord.”
