1 “This is not the first time my enemies assaulted me; they have often attacked me since I was young.” So let Israel now proclaim, 2 “This is not the first time my enemies assaulted me; they have attacked me since I was young, and yet they have not been able to overpower me. 3 The plowers plowed over me; they plowed their furrows deep and long down my back.” 4 The Eternal is just. He’s severed the bindings of the wicked so they can’t hurt me anymore. 5 May all who despise Zion hang their heads in shame. May all who despise Zion recoil and run away. 6 Let them grow like grass upon rooftops that withers and dies in the sun long before it has time to grow, 7 Unfit to be harvested by the worker, not worthy of the effort to carry off to the binder. 8 Unwanted, uncared for—no passersby to greet them, no one to say, “May the favor of the Eternal be upon you; We bless you in His name.”
