Psalm 129

Questions:

1. What chore would you prefer: mowing the lawn, putting on a new roof or cleaning house?

2. Why has Israel been oppressed and hated throughout history (verses 1 – 3)? How have the Jews managed to outlive every oppressor (verse 4)?

3. What does the psalmist wish for the “haters of Zion” (verses 5 – 8)? Do you like this attitude?

4. What is freedom? Does it lie in political sovereignty? What internal menace always plagued Israel?

5. Have you ever suffered harsh treatment? Are you emotionally tied up? How? Has God cut the cords for you before?
