Psalm 129

Prayer for the Overthrow of Zion’s Enemies.

A Song of Ascents.

1[a]Many times they have [b]persecuted me from my youth up,”
Let Israel now say,
[c]Many times they have [d]persecuted me from my youth up;
Yet they have not prevailed against me.
“The plowers plowed upon my back;
They lengthened their furrows.”
The Lord is righteous;
He has cut in two the cords of the wicked.

May all who hate Zion
Be put to shame and turned backward;
Let them be like grass upon the housetops,
Which withers before it [e]grows up;
With which the reaper does not fill his [f]hand,
Or the binder of sheaves his bosom;
Nor do those who pass by say,
“The blessing of the Lord be upon you;
We bless you in the name of the Lord.”

诗篇 129

求上帝击退仇敌

上圣殿朝圣之诗。

1以色列要说:
我从小就深受仇敌的迫害,
我从小就深受仇敌的迫害,
但他们没能胜过我。
他们鞭打我的背,
伤痕如同农夫耕出的长长犁沟。
耶和华是公义的,
祂砍断了恶人捆绑我的绳索。
愿所有憎恶锡安的人狼狈而逃。
愿他们像房顶的草,
没长起来就已枯萎,
割下来不满一把,
扎起来不足一捆。
没有一个路过的人说:
“愿耶和华赐福给你们!
我们奉耶和华的名祝福你们。”
