128:1 A Song of Ascents. Happy is every one that feareth the Lord, that walketh in His ways.

128:2 When thou eatest the labour of thy hands, happy shalt thou be, and it shall be well with thee.

128:3 Thy wife shall be as a fruitful vine, in the innermost parts of thy house; thy children like olive plants, round about thy table.

128:4 Behold, surely thus shall the man be blessed that feareth the Lord.

128:5 the Lord bless thee out of Zion; and see thou the good of Jerusalem all the days of thy life;

128:6 And see thy children's children. Peace be upon Israel!
