Psalm 128
Contemporary English Version

(A song for worship.)

The Lord Rewards His Faithful People

1The Lord will bless you

if you respect him

and obey his laws.

2Your fields will produce,

and you will be happy—

all will go well.

3Your wife will be as fruitful

as a grapevine,

and just as an olive tree

is rich with olives,

your home will be rich

with healthy children.

4This is how the Lord will bless

everyone who respects him.

5I pray that the Lord

will bless you from Zion

and let Jerusalem prosper

as long as you live.

6May you live long enough

to see your grandchildren.

Let's pray for peace in Israel!
