New American Standard Bible

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.”

Mpae a wɔbɔ tia Israel atamfo

1Israel, ka efi wo mmofraase, taa a w’atamfo ataa wo, nanso wɔantumi anni wo so kyerɛ yɛn. “Efi me mmofraase, m’atamfo ataa me atirimɔden so, nanso wɔantumi anni me so.

“Wotwaa kam kɛse te sɛ asase a wɔafuntum wɔ m’akyi. Nanso Awurade, ɔtreneeni no, agye me afi nkoasom mu.”

Obiara a ɔtan Sion no, wobedi ne so na wɔapam no asan n’akyi. Ma wɔn nyinaa nyɛ sɛ sare a enyin wɔ adan atifi ma ewu no; Obiara mmoaboa ano, na obiara nsoa no afiafi nkɔ. Obiara a obetwam wɔ hɔ no renka se, “Awurade nhyira mo! Yehyira mo wɔ Awurade din mu.”
