New Century Version (NCV) New International Version (NIV)
1 Happy are those who respect the Lord and obey him. 1 Blessed are all who fear the LORD, who walk in his ways.
2 You will enjoy what you work for, and you will be blessed with good things. 2 You will eat the fruit of your labor; blessings and prosperity will be yours.
3 Your wife will give you many children, like a vine that produces much fruit. Your children will bring you much good, like olive branches that produce many olives. 3 Your wife will be like a fruitful vine within your house; your sons will be like olive shoots around your table.
4 This is how the man who respects the Lord will be blessed. 4 Thus is the man blessed who fears the LORD.
5 May the Lord bless you from Mount Zion; may you enjoy the good things of Jerusalem all 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 see your grandchildren. Let there be peace in Israel. A song for going up to worship. 6 and may you live to see your children's children. Peace be upon Israel.
