1 "Many a time have they fought against me from my youth on," *
may Israel now say;
2 "Indeed, many a time have they afflicted me from my youth on, *
but they have not prevailed against me.
3 The plowers plowed upon my back,*
and made long furrows.
4 But the righteous Lord*
has hewn the snares of the ungodly in pieces."
5 Let them be ashamed and turned backward,*
as many as hate Zion.
6 Let them be as the grass growing upon the housetops,*
which withers before it grows up,
7 Which does not fill the hand of the reaper,*
neither the bosom of him who binds up the sheaves,
8 So that those who go by say not so much as, "The Lord prosper you.*
We bless you in the Name of the Lord."
