The Blessedness of Him Who Fears the Lord
A Song of degrees.
1Blessed is every one that feareth the Lord;
that walketh in his ways.
2For thou shalt eat the labor of thine hands:
happy shalt thou be,
and it shall be well with thee.
3Thy wife shall be as a fruitful vine
by the sides of thine house:
thy children like olive plants
round about thy table.
4Behold, that thus shall the man be blessed that feareth the Lord.
5The Lord shall bless thee out of Zion:
and thou shalt see the good of Jerusalem
all the days of thy life.
6Yea, thou shalt see thy children's children,
and peace upon Israel.
