Psalm 129 NLT

1 A song for the ascent to Jerusalem. From my earliest youth my enemies have persecuted me -- let Israel now say --
2 from my earliest youth my enemies have persecuted me, but they have never been able to finish me off.
3 My back is covered with cuts, as if a farmer had plowed long furrows.
4 But the LORD is good; he has cut the cords used by the ungodly to bind me.
5 May all who hate Jerusalem a be turned back in shameful defeat.
