Psalm 128

English Standard Version

1 A Song of Ascents. Blessed is everyone who fears the Lord, who walks in his ways! (Ps 112:1; Ps 119:1; Ps 120:1; Pr 8:32)2 You shall eat the fruit of the labor of your hands; you shall be blessed, and it shall be well with you. (Ps 109:11; Isa 3:10)3 Your wife will be like a fruitful vine within your house; your children will be like olive shoots around your table. (Ge 49:22; Ps 52:8; Eze 19:10)4 Behold, thus shall the man be blessed who fears the Lord.5 The Lord bless you from Zion! May you see the prosperity of Jerusalem all the days of your life! (Ps 20:2; Ps 122:9; Ps 134:3; Ps 135:21)6 May you see your children’s children! Peace be upon Israel! (Job 42:16; Ps 125:5; Pr 17:6)
