The Psalms

Psalm 128

The various blessings which follow those who fear God, 1-6.

1 [A Song of Degrees.] Blessed is everyone who fears the LORD, who walks in his ways.

2 For you shall eat the labor of your hands. You shall be happy, and it shall be well with you.

3 Your wife shall be as a fruitful vine by the sides of your house, your children like olive plants around your table.

4 Behold, thus the man who fears the LORD shall be blessed.

5 The LORD shall bless you out of Zion, and you shall see the good of Jerusalem all the days of your life.

6 Indeed, you shall see your children's children and peace upon Israel.
