Blessedness of the Fear of the Lord.

A Song of Ascents.

128 (A)How blessed is everyone who fears the Lord,
Who (B)walks in His ways.
When you shall (C)eat of the [a](D)fruit of your hands,
You will be happy and (E)it will be well with you.
Your wife shall be like a (F)fruitful vine
[b]Within your house,
Your children like (G)olive plants
Around your table.
Behold, for thus shall the man be blessed
Who fears the Lord.

(H)The Lord bless you (I)from Zion,
And may you see the prosperity of Jerusalem all the days of your life.
Indeed, may you see your (J)children’s children.
(K)Peace be upon Israel!
