New International Reader's Version

Psalm 128

Psalm 128

A song for those who go up to Jerusalem to worship the Lord.

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 may your wife have many children by you.
May they 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.

New American Standard Bible

Psalm 128

Blessedness of the Fear of the Lord.

A Song of Ascents.

1How blessed is everyone who fears the Lord,
Who walks in His ways.
When you shall eat of the [a]fruit of your hands,
You will be happy and it will be well with you.
Your wife shall be like a fruitful vine
[b]Within your house,
Your children like olive plants
Around your table.
Behold, for thus shall the man be blessed
Who fears the Lord.

The Lord bless you from Zion,
And may you see the prosperity of Jerusalem all the days of your life.
Indeed, may you see your children’s children.
Peace be upon Israel!
