128 Blessed [happy and sheltered by God’s favor] is everyone who fears the Lord [and worships Him with obedience], Who walks in His ways and lives according to His commandments. 2 For you shall eat the fruit of [the labor of] your hands, You will be happy and blessed and it will be well with you. 3 Your wife shall be like a fruitful vine Within the innermost part of your house; Your children will be like olive plants Around your table. 4 Behold, for so shall the man be blessed and divinely favored Who fears the Lord [and worships Him with obedience].
5 May the Lord bless you from Zion [His holy mountain], And may you see the prosperity of Jerusalem all the days of your life; 6 Indeed, may you see your [family perpetuated in your] children’s children. Peace be upon Israel!
129 “Many times they have persecuted me (Israel) from my youth,” Let Israel now say, 2 “Many times they have persecuted me from my youth, Yet they have not prevailed against me. 3 “The [enemies, like] plowers plowed on my back; They made their furrows [of suffering] long [in Israel].” 4 The Lord is righteous; He has cut in two the [thick] cords of the wicked [which enslaved the people of Israel].
5 May all who hate Zion Be put to shame and turned backward [in defeat]. 6 Let them be like the grass on the housetops, Which withers before it grows up, 7 With which the reaper does not fill his hand, Nor the binder of sheaves his arms, 8 Nor do those who pass by say, “The blessing of the Lord be upon you; We bless you in the name of the Lord.”
