A song for those who go up to Jerusalem to worship the Lord.
1Blessed are all those who have respect for the Lord.
They live as he wants them to live.
2Your work will give you what you need.
Blessings and good things will come to you.
3As a vine bears a lot of fruit,
so your wife will have many children by you.
They will sit around your table
like young olive trees.
4Only a man who has respect for the Lord
will be blessed like that.
5May the Lord bless you from Zion.
May you enjoy the good things that come to Jerusalem
all the days of your life.
6May you live to see your grandchildren. May Israel enjoy peace.
