New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 A song for the ascent to Jerusalem. How happy are those who fear the LORD -- all who follow his ways! 1 Blessed are all who fear the LORD, who walk in his ways.
2 You will enjoy the fruit of your labor. How happy you will be! How rich your life! 2 You will eat the fruit of your labor; blessings and prosperity will be yours.
3 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. 3 Your wife will be like a fruitful vine within your house; your sons will be like olive shoots around your table.
4 That is the LORD's reward for those who fear him. 4 Thus is the man blessed who fears the LORD.
5 May the LORD continually bless you from Zion. May you see Jerusalem prosper as long as you live. 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 enjoy your grandchildren. And may Israel have quietness and peace. 6 and may you live to see your children's children. Peace be upon Israel.
