129 “Since my youth they have often persecuted me,” let Israel repeat it, 2 “Since my youth they have often persecuted me, yet they haven’t defeated me. 3 Wicked people[a] plowed over my back, creating long-lasting wounds.”[b]
4 The Lord is righteous— he has cut me free from the cords of the wicked.
5 Let all who hate Zion be turned away and be ashamed. 6 May they become like a tuft of grass on a roof top, that withers before it takes root— 7 not enough to fill one’s hand or to bundle in one’s arms. 8 And may those who pass by never tell them, “May the Lord’s blessing be upon you. We bless you in the name of the Lord.”
