1 Blessed are all those who fear the Lord, ♦
and walk in his ways.
2 You shall eat the fruit of the toil of your hands; ♦
it shall go well with you, and happy shall you be.
3 Your wife within your house
shall be like a fruitful vine; ♦
your children round your table,
like fresh olive branches.
4 Thus shall the one be blest ♦
who fears the Lord.
5 The Lord from out of Zion bless you, ♦
that you may see Jerusalem in prosperity
all the days of your life.
6 May you see your children’s children, ♦
and may there be peace upon Israel.
