1 A Song of Ascents. Blessed is every one who fears the Lord, Who walks in His ways. 1 Blessed are all who fear the LORD, who walk in his ways.
2 When you eat the labor of your hands, You shall be happy, and it shall be well with you. 2 You will eat the fruit of your labor; blessings and prosperity will be yours.
3 Your wife shall be like a fruitful vine In the very heart of your house, Your children like olive plants All around your table. 3 Your wife will be like a fruitful vine within your house; your sons will be like olive shoots around your table.
4 Behold, thus shall the man be blessed Who fears the Lord. 4 Thus is the man blessed who fears the LORD.
5 The Lord bless you out of Zion, And may you see the good of 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 Yes, may you see your children's children. Peace be upon Israel! 6 and may you live to see your children's children. Peace be upon Israel.
