|Ps 128:1 Blessed [happy and sheltered by God's favor] is everyone who fears the LORD [and worships Him with obedience],
Who walks in His ways and lives according to His commandments. [Ps 1:1, 2]
|Ps 128:2 For you shall eat the fruit of [the labor of] your hands,
You will be happy and blessed and it will be well with you.
|Ps 128:3 Your wife shall be like a fruitful vine
Within the innermost part of your house;
Your children will be like olive plants
Around your table.
|Ps 128:4 Behold, for so shall the man be blessed and divinely favored
Who fears the LORD [and worships Him with obedience].
|Ps 128:5 ¶ May the LORD bless you from Zion [His holy mountain],
And may you see the prosperity of Jerusalem all the days of your life;
|Ps 128:6 Indeed, may you see your [family perpetuated in your] children's children.
Peace be upon Israel!
