Amplified Bible

Psalm 128

Blessedness of the Fear of the Lord.

A Song of [a]Ascents.

1Blessed [happy and sheltered by God’s favor] is everyone who fears the Lord [and worships Him with obedience],
Who walks in His ways and lives according to His commandments.

For you shall eat the fruit of [the labor of] your hands,
You will be happy and blessed and it will be well with you.

Your wife shall be like a fruitful vine
Within the innermost part of your house;
Your children will be like olive plants
Around your table.

Behold, for so shall the man be blessed and divinely favored
Who fears the Lord [and worships Him with obedience].


May the Lord bless you from Zion [His holy mountain],
And may you see the prosperity of Jerusalem all the days of your life;

Indeed, may you see your [family perpetuated in your] children’s children.
Peace be upon Israel!

Salme 128

Velsignelsen ved at adlyde Herren

1En valfartssang.

Du bliver velsignet, når du adlyder Herren,
    når du omhyggeligt handler på hans ord.
Du får lov at nyde resultatet af dit arbejde,
    du bliver lykkelig og får et godt liv.
Din hustru trives hos dig,
    hun er frugtbar som en vinranke.
Dine børn sidder omkring bordet,
    sunde og raske som unge oliventræer.
Se, det er Herrens velsignelse,
    sådan lønner han enhver, der adlyder ham.
Må Herren velsigne dig rigt fra Zion,
    må du se Jerusalem blomstre op.
Må du leve længe og se dine børnebørn.

Fred være med Israel!
