Psalm 128

Blessings of Those Who Fear the Lord

A Song of Ascents.

1 Blessed ais every one who fears the Lord,

Who walks in His ways.

2 bWhen you eat the 1labor of your hands,

You shall be happy, and it shall be cwell with you.

3 Your wife shall be dlike a fruitful vine

In the very heart of your house,

Your echildren flike olive plants

All around your table.

4 Behold, thus shall the man be blessed

Who fears the Lord.

5 gThe Lord bless you out of Zion,

And may you see the good of Jerusalem

All the days of your life.

6 Yes, may you hsee your children’s children.

iPeace be upon Israel!


About The New King James Version

The New King James Version is a total update of the 1611 King James Version, also known as the "Authorized Version." Every attempt has been made to maintain the beauty of the original version while updating the English grammar to contemporary style and usage. The result is much better "readability." It is noteworthy that the NKJV is one of the few modern translations still based on the "Western" or "Byzantine" manuscript tradition. This makes the New King James Version an invaluable aid to comparative English Bible study.
