You who fear him,1 trust in the LORD-- he is their help and shield.
The LORD remembers2 us and will bless us:3 He will bless the house of Israel, he will bless the house of Aaron,
he will bless those who fear4 the LORD-- small and great alike.
May the LORD make you increase,5 both you and your children.
May you be blessed by the LORD, the Maker of heaven6 and earth.
The highest heavens belong to the LORD,7 but the earth he has given8 to man.
It is not the dead9 who praise the LORD, those who go down to silence;
it is we who extol the LORD,10 both now and forevermore.11 Praise the LORD.a12
