New International Reader's Version (NIRV) New International Version (NIV)
1 Blessed are all those who have respect for the Lord. They live as he wants them to live. 1 Blessed are all who fear the LORD, who walk in his ways.
2 Your work will give you what you need. Blessings and good things will come to you. 2 You will eat the fruit of your labor; blessings and prosperity will be yours.
3 As a vine bears a lot of fruit, so your wife will have many children by you. They will sit around your table like young olive trees. 3 Your wife will be like a fruitful vine within your house; your sons will be like olive shoots around your table.
4 Only a man who has respect for the LORD will be blessed like that. 4 Thus is the man blessed who fears the LORD.
5 May the LORD bless you from Zion. May you enjoy the good things that come to Jerusalem all the days 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 May you live to see your grandchildren. May Israel enjoy peace. 6 and may you live to see your children's children. Peace be upon Israel.
