"Many times they have apersecuted me from my byouth up," cLet Israel now say,
"Many times they have persecuted me from my youth up; Yet they have anot prevailed against me.
"The plowers plowed upon my back; They lengthened their furrows."
The Lord ais righteous; He has cut in two the bcords of the wicked.
May all who ahate Zion Be bput to shame and turned backward;
Let them be like agrass upon the housetops, Which withers before it grows up;
With which the reaper does not fill his hand, Or the binder of sheaves his abosom;
Nor do those who pass by say, "The ablessing of the Lord be upon you; We bless you in the name of the Lord."
