Blessed are all those who have respect for the Lord. They live as he wants them to live.
Your work will give you what you need. Blessings and good things will come to you.
As a vine bears a lot of fruit, so your wife will have many children by you. They will sit around your table like young olive trees.
Only a man who has respect for the Lord will be blessed like that.
May the Lord bless you from Zion. May you enjoy the good things that come to Jerusalem all the days of your life.
May you live to see your grandchildren. May Israel enjoy peace.
