Psalm 128 – New International Version (NIV)

A song of ascents.

  1. Blessed are all who fear the Lord, who walk in obedience to him.
  2. You will eat the fruit of your labor; blessings and prosperity will be yours.
  3. Your wife will be like a fruitful vine within your house; your children will be like olive shoots around your table.
  4. Yes, this will be the blessing for the man who fears the Lord.
  5. May the Lord bless you from Zion; may you see the prosperity of Jerusalem all the days of your life.
  6. May you live to see your children’s children— peace be on Israel.
