Psalms 129-131

Chapter 129

Psalm 129

A song of ascents.

1 "They have greatly oppressed(a) me from my youth,"(b)
     let Israel say;(c)
2 "they have greatly oppressed me from my youth,
     but they have not gained the victory(d) over me.
3 Plowmen have plowed my back
     and made their furrows long.
4 But the Lord is righteous;(e)
     he has cut me free(f) from the cords of the wicked."(g)

5 May all who hate Zion(h)
     be turned back in shame.(i)
6 May they be like grass on the roof,(j)
     which withers(k) before it can grow;
7 a reaper cannot fill his hands with it,(l)
     nor one who gathers fill his arms.
8 May those who pass by not say to them,
     "The blessing of the Lord be on you;
     we bless you(m) in the name of the Lord ."

Chapter 130

Psalm 130

A song of ascents.

1 Out of the depths(a) I cry to you,(b) Lord ;
2       Lord, hear my voice.(c)
Let your ears be attentive(d)
     to my cry for mercy.(e)

3 If you, Lord , kept a record of sins,
     Lord, who could stand?(f)
4 But with you there is forgiveness,(g)
     so that we can, with reverence, serve you.(h)

5 I wait for the Lord ,(i) my whole being waits,(j)
     and in his word(k) I put my hope.
6 I wait for the Lord
     more than watchmen(l) wait for the morning,
     more than watchmen wait for the morning.(m)

7 Israel, put your hope(n) in the Lord ,
     for with the Lord is unfailing love(o)
     and with him is full redemption.(p)
8 He himself will redeem(q) Israel
     from all their sins.(r)

Chapter 131

Psalm 131

A song of ascents. Of David.

1 My heart is not proud,(a) Lord ,
     my eyes are not haughty;(b)
I do not concern myself with great matters(c)
     or things too wonderful for me.(d)
2 But I have calmed and quieted myself,(e)
     I am like a weaned child with its mother;
     like a weaned child I am content.(f)

3 Israel, put your hope(g) in the Lord
     both now and forevermore.(h)
