The Psalms

A Prayer for the Overthrow of Zion's Enemies
A Song of degrees.

1  Many a time have they afflicted me from my youth,
may Israel now say:
2  Many a time have they afflicted me from my youth:
yet they have not prevailed against me.
3  The plowers plowed upon my back:
they made long their furrows.
4  The LORD is righteous:
he hath cut asunder the cords of the wicked.
5  Let them all be confounded and turned back that hate Zion.
6  Let them be as the grass upon the housetops,
which withereth afore it groweth up:
7  wherewith the mower filleth not his hand;
nor he that bindeth sheaves his bosom.
8  Neither do they which go by say,
The blessing of the LORD be upon you:
we bless you in the name of the LORD.
