A song for the ascent to Jerusalem. How happy are those who fear the LORD -- all who follow his ways!
You will enjoy the fruit of your labor. How happy you will be! How rich your life!
Your wife will be like a fruitful vine, flourishing within your home. And look at all those children! There they sit around your table as vigorous and healthy as young olive trees.
That is the LORD's reward for those who fear him.
May the LORD continually bless you from Zion. May you see Jerusalem prosper as long as you live.
May you live to enjoy your grandchildren. And may Israel have quietness and peace.
