(English translation got from website: https://www.chabad.org/library/bible_cdo )

  1. A song of ascents. Much have they distressed me from my youth, Israel will say now.
  2. Much have they distressed me from my youth, but also they have not prevailed against me.
  3. On my back, the plowmen plowed; they lengthened their furrow.
  4. The Lord is righteous; He will cut the ropes of the wicked.
  5. May all those who hate Zion be ashamed and retreat.
  6. May they be like the grass of the roofs, which, before it is plucked, withers.
  7. Of which the reaper did not fill his hand, nor the gatherer his arm.
  8. And the passers-by did not say, « May the blessing of the Lord be to you; we have blessed you in the name of the Lord. »
