اَلْمَزَامِيرُ 129

تَرْنِيمَةُ ٱلْمَصَاعِدِ «كَثِيرًا مَا ضَايَقُونِي مُنْذُ شَبَابِي». لِيَقُلْ إِسْرَائِيلُ: ١ 1
A song of ascents. “Often since my youth they have attacked me,” let Israel say.
«كَثِيرًا مَا ضَايَقُونِي مُنْذُ شَبَابِي، لَكِنْ لَمْ يَقْدِرُوا عَلَيَّ. ٢ 2
“Often since my youth they have attacked me, yet they have not defeated me.
عَلَى ظَهْرِي حَرَثَ ٱلْحُرَّاثُ. طَوَّلُوا أَتْلَامَهُمْ». ٣ 3
The plowers plowed on my back; they made their furrows long.
ٱلرَّبُّ صِدِّيقٌ. قَطَعَ رُبُطَ ٱلْأَشْرَارِ. ٤ 4
Yahweh is righteous; he has cut the ropes of the wicked.”
فَلْيَخْزَ وَلْيَرْتَدَّ إِلَى ٱلْوَرَاءِ كُلُّ مُبْغِضِي صِهْيَوْنَ. ٥ 5
May they all be put to shame and turned back, those who hate Zion.
لِيَكُونُوا كَعُشْبِ ٱلسُّطُوحِ ٱلَّذِي يَيْبَسُ قَبْلَ أَنْ يُقْلَعَ، ٦ 6
May they be like the grass on the housetops that withers before it grows up,
ٱلَّذِي لَا يَمْلَأُ ٱلْحَاصِدُ كَفَّهُ مِنْهُ وَلَا ٱلْمُحَزِّمُ حِضْنَهُ. ٧ 7
that cannot fill the reaper's hand or the chest of the one who binds bundles of grain together.
وَلَا يَقُولُ ٱلْعَابِرُونَ: «بَرَكَةُ ٱلرَّبِّ عَلَيْكُمْ. بَارَكْنَاكُمْ بِٱسْمِ ٱلرَّبِّ». ٨ 8
May those who pass by not say, “May the blessing of Yahweh be on you; we bless you in the name of Yahweh.”
