Psalm 128

Blessings for fearing the Lord
Do families of those who fear the Lord always turn out as described in this psalm? No, but parents have a far greater responsibility and influence than they think.
 1 ¶ <<A Song of degrees.>> Blessed is every one that feareth the LORD; that walketh in his ways.
 2  For thou shalt eat the labour of thine hands: happy shalt thou be, and it shall be well with thee.
 3  Thy wife shall be as a fruitful vine by the sides of thine house: thy children like olive plants round about thy table.
 4  Behold, that thus shall the man be blessed that feareth the LORD.
 5  The LORD shall bless thee out of Zion: and thou shalt see the good of Jerusalem all the days of thy life.
 6  Yea, thou shalt see thy children's children, and peace upon Israel.
  2 - Eat the labour Some feel that physical work is undignified. This is unfortunate ge0215.
  3 - Children See also the previous psalm.
  4 - Fear This is a joy.
