A song of ascents.
How blessed is every one of the Lord’s loyal followers,
each one who keeps his commands!
You will eat what you worked so hard to grow.
You will be blessed and secure.
Your wife will be like a fruitful vine
in the inner rooms of your house;
your children will be like olive branches,
as they sit all around your table.
Yes indeed, the man who fears the Lord
will be blessed in this way.
May the Lord bless you from Zion,
that you might see Jerusalem prosper
all the days of your life,
and that you might see your grandchildren.
May Israel experience peace!
