Lit Much
Many times they have

Lit Much
Many times they have
Lit showed hostility toward
persecuted me from my youth up;
Yet they have h  not prevailed against me.
3The plowers plowed upon my back;
They lengthened their furrows.”
4The  Lord i  is righteous;
He has cut in two the j  cords of the wicked.

5May all who k  hate Zion
Be l  put to shame and turned backward;
6Let them be like m  grass upon the housetops,
Which withers before it
Lit draws out
grows up;
7With which the reaper does not fill his
Lit palm
hand,
Or the binder of sheaves his p  bosom;
8Nor do those who pass by say,
“The q  blessing of the  Lord be upon you;
We bless you in the name of the  Lord.”
