Week 24

Psalm 129
21st Century King James Version (KJ21)

“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 before it groweth up,
7) wherewith the mower filleth not his hand, nor he that bindeth sheaves, his bosom.
8) Neither do those who go by say, “The blessing of the Lord be upon you; we bless you in the name of the Lord.”
