Sæpe expugnaverunt me

Sæpe expugnaverunt me a juventute mea, dicat nunc Israël; sæpe expugnaverunt me a juventute mea: etenim non potuerunt mihi. Supra dorsum meum fabricaverunt 
peccatores; prolongaverunt iniquitatem suam. Dominus justus concidit cervices peccatorum.

Often have they fought against me from my youth. Let Israel now say: Often have the fought against me from my youth. Yet they have not prevailed against me. They have long oppressed me with their iniquities. But the Lord of justice will break the neck of sinners. (Psalm 129:1-4)
