Psalms 128

Blessed Is Everyone Who Fears Yahweh
A song of ascents.#The Hebrew Bible counts the superscription as the first verse of the psalm
1Blessed is everyone who fears Yahweh,
who walks in his ways.
2You will indeed eat of the labor of your hands;
you will be happy and it will be well with you.
3Your wife will be like a fruitful vine
within#Literally “in the recesses of” your house.
Your children#Hebrew “sons” will be like olive shoots
about your table.
4Look, for thus shall a man be blessed
who fears Yahweh.#Literally “a fearer of Yahweh”
5May Yahweh bless you from Zion,
that you may see the good of Jerusalem
all the days of your life,
6and that you may see your children’s children.
May peace be upon Israel.
