The plowers have plowed upon my back;
they lengthened their furrows. Bible

‘The plowers have plowed upon my back.” Psalm 129:3 has long been considered by spiritual people to refer to the suffering of Christ and the whippings he endured at the hands of the Romans, and that is no doubt the case. Although the Psalmist himself may have been whipped, and many others certainly have been, the great subject of the Word of God is Jesus Christ, and this verse and others like it must have helped prepare him for the things he had to go through to purchase our salvation. Thankfully, after the suffering comes the glory, and in the case of Jesus, the cords that bound him were eventually cut by God and he was delivered and glorified (Ps. 129:4).
