Psalms 129:5

King James Version (KJV)
Albert Barnes
Notes on the Whole Bible

Let them all be confounded and turned back … - This might be rendered in the indicative, “they are ashamed,” but the connection seems to require the rendering in our version. It is a prayer that God would now interpose as he had done in former times, and that he would cause all the haters of Zion to be put to shame as formerly.
