Psalm 128

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.

   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.
