Fear of the Lord - Psalm 127 (128)

PSALM 127 (128)
A song of ascents.

         Blessed are all they that fear the Lord,
that walk in His ways.
         Thou shalt eat the fruit of thy labours;
blessed art thou, and it shall be well with thee.
         Thy wife shall be as a fruitful vine by the sides of thy house:
thy children like olive plants round about thy table.
         Behold, thus shall the man be blessed that feareth the Lord.
         The Lord bless thee out of Sion,
and mayest thou see the good of Jerusalem all the days of thy life.
         And mayest thou see thy children's children.
Peace be upon Israel.

The Psalmist is so happy with the blessing of his family, that one day is not enough to sing the praises of the Lord over them.

Look and see that this will be
The way of the man that fears the Lord
Happily with his family
Walking in the fear of the Lord

You will work in peace and be well rewarded
For God works for the good of his own
You'll have a faithful wife and all your children
Will grow up in your happy home

Blessing will come to you out of Zion
From Jerusalem will come all its good
May you live long enough to see your grandchildren
Pray for peace, and fear the Lord
