|793||HAPPY ARE ALL WHO FEAR THE LORD||Psalm 128, NEB|
Happy are all who fear the Lord,|
who live according to his will.
You shall eat the fruit of your own labours,
you shall be happy and you shall prosper.
Your wife shall be like a fruitful vine
in the heart of your house;
your sons* shall be like olive-shoots
round about your table.
This is the blessing in store for the
man who fears the Lord.
May the Lord bless you from Zion;
may you share the prosperity of Jerusalem
all the days of your life,
and live to see your children's children!
Peace be upon Israel!
