Psalm 128
NET BibleEnglish Standard Version
1A song of ascents. How blessed is every one of the LORD's loyal followers, each one who keeps his commands! 1Blessed is everyone who fears the LORD, who walks in his ways!
2You will eat what you worked so hard to grow. You will be blessed and secure. 2You shall eat the fruit of the labor of your hands; you shall be blessed, and it shall be well with you.
3Your wife will be like a fruitful vine in the inner rooms of your house; your children will be like olive branches, as they sit all around your table. 3Your wife will be like a fruitful vine within your house; your children will be like olive shoots around your table.
4Yes indeed, the man who fears the LORD will be blessed in this way. 4Behold, thus shall the man be blessed who fears the LORD.
5May the LORD bless you from Zion, that you might see Jerusalem prosper all the days of your life, 5The LORD bless you from Zion! May you see the prosperity of Jerusalem all the days of your life!
6and that you might see your grandchildren. May Israel experience peace! 6May you see your children’s children! Peace be upon Israel!
