Psalms 128
(A song for worship.)
The Lord Rewards His Faithful People
1The Lord will bless you
if you respect him
and obey his laws.
2Your fields will produce,
and you will be happy—
all will go well.
3Your wife will be as fruitful
as a grapevine,
and just as an olive tree
is rich with olives,
your home will be rich
with healthy children.
4This is how the Lord will bless
everyone who respects him.
5I pray that the Lord
will bless you from Zion
and let Jerusalem prosper
as long as you live.
6May you live long enough
to see your grandchildren.
Let's pray for peace in Israel!
