CEB 1 From youth, people have constantly attacked me— let Israel now repeat!— NIV 1 They have greatly oppressed me from my youth-- let Israel say-- CEB 2 from youth people have constantly attacked me— but they haven't beaten me! NIV 2 they have greatly oppressed me from my youth, but they have not gained the victory over me. CEB 3 They plowed my back like farmers; they made their furrows deep. NIV 3 Plowmen have plowed my back and made their furrows long. CEB 4 But the LORD is righteous— God cut me free from the ropes of the wicked! NIV 4 But the LORD is righteous; he has cut me free from the cords of the wicked. CEB 5 Let everyone who hates Zion be ashamed, thoroughly frustrated. NIV 5 May all who hate Zion be turned back in shame. CEB 6 Let them be like grass on a roof that dies before it can be pulled up, NIV 6 May they be like grass on the roof, which withers before it can grow; CEB 7 which won't fill the reaper's hand or fill the harvester's arms. NIV 7 with it the reaper cannot fill his hands, nor the one who gathers fill his arms. CEB 8 Let no one who passes by say to them: "May the LORD's blessing be on you! We bless you in the LORD's name!" NIV 8 May those who pass by not say, "The blessing of the LORD be upon you; we bless you in the name of the LORD."
