Chapter 128

Sundry blessings which follow them that fear God. (A Song of degrees.)

1)Blessed is everyone that feareth the Lord; that walketh in his ways.

2)For thou shalt eat the labor of thine hands; happy shalt thou be, and it shall be well with thee.

3)Thy wife shall be as a fruitful vine by the sides of thine house; thy children like olive plants round about thy table.

4)Behold, that thus shall the man be blessed that feareth the Lord.

5)The Lord shall bless thee out of Zion; and thou shalt see the good of Jerusalem all the days of thy life.

6)Yea, thou shalt see thy children's children, and peace upon Israel.
