The One Hundred Twenty Ninth Psalm

Saepe expugnaverunt.


MANY a time have they fought against me from my youth up, * may Israel now say;
 
Yea, many a time have they vexed me from my youth up; * but they have not prevailed against me.
 
The plowers plowed upon my back, * and made long furrows.
 
But the righteous LORD * hath hewn the snares of the ungodly in pieces.
 
Let them be confounded and turned backward, * as many as have evil will at Sion.
 
Let them be even as the grass upon the housetops, * which withereth afore it be grown up;
 
Whereof the mower filleth not his hand, * neither he that bindeth up the sheaves his bosom.
 
So that they who go by say not so much as, The LORD prosper you; * we wish you good luck in the Name of the LORD.
