|Prayer for the Overthrow of Zions Enemies|
|A Song of Ascents.|
| ||MANY 1 a time have they afflicted me from my youth up,|
Let Israel now say,
| ||Many 2 a time have they afflicted me from my youth up:|
Yet they have not prevailed against me.
| ||The plowers plowed upon my back;|
They made long their furrows.
| ||Jehovah is righteous:|
He hath cut asunder the cords of the wicked.
| ||Let them be put to shame and turned backward,|
All they that hate Zion.
| ||Let them be as the grass upon the housetops,|
Which withereth before it groweth 3 up;
| ||Wherewith the reaper filleth not his hand,|
Nor he that bindeth sheaves, his bosom:
| ||Neither do they that go by say,|
The blessing of Jehovah be upon you;
We bless you in the name of Jehovah.
