The Message (MSG) New International Version (NIV)
1 All you who fear God, how blessed you are! how happily you walk on his smooth straight road! 1 Blessed are all who fear the LORD, who walk in his ways.
2 You worked hard and deserve all you've got coming. Enjoy the blessing! Revel in the goodness! 2 You will eat the fruit of your labor; blessings and prosperity will be yours.
3 Your wife will bear children as a vine bears grapes, your household lush as a vineyard, The children around your table as fresh and promising as young olive shoots. 3 Your wife will be like a fruitful vine within your house; your sons will be like olive shoots around your table.
4 Stand in awe of God's Yes. Oh, how he blesses the one who fears God! 4 Thus is the man blessed who fears the LORD.
5 Enjoy the good life in Jerusalem every day of your life. 5 May the LORD bless you from Zion all the days of your life; may you see the prosperity of Jerusalem,
6 And enjoy your grandchildren. Peace to Israel! 6 and may you live to see your children's children. Peace be upon Israel.
