A Song of ascents.
1Blessed is every one who fears the LORD,
who walks in his ways!
2You shall eat the fruit of the labour of your hands;
you shall be happy, and it shall be well with you.
3Your wife will be like a fruitful vine within your house;
your children will be like olive shoots
around your table.
4Lo, thus shall the man be blessed who fears the LORD.
5The LORD bless you from Zion!
May you see the prosperity of Jerusalem
all the days of your life!
6May you see your children's children!
Peace be upon Israel!
