The plough of persecution…

The plowers plowed on my back; They made their furrows long.
Psalm 129:3

The Lord usually suffers his enemies to break up the fallow ground
of his people’s proud and stiff hearts with the plough of persecution,
and to draw deep and long furrows on them.

David Dickson, A Commentary on the Psalms, 433
