Many a time have they afflicted me from my youth, may Israel now say :
Many a time have they afflicted me from my youth: yet they have not prevailed against me.
The plowersplowed upon my back: they made long their furrows .
The LORD is righteous: he hath cut asunder the cords of the wicked.5
Let them all be confounded and turnedback that hateZion.6
Let them be as the grass upon the housetops, which witherethafore it groweth up :
Wherewith the mowerfilleth not his hand; nor he that bindeth sheaves his bosom.
