Psalm 128

Blessings for Those Who Fear God

A song of ascents.

How happy is everyone who fears the Lord,
who walks in his ways!(A)
You will surely eat
what your hands have worked for.(B)
You will be happy,
and it will go well for you.(C)
Your wife will be like a fruitful vine
within your house,
your children, like young olive trees
around your table.(D)
In this very way
the man who fears the Lord
will be blessed.(E)

May the Lord bless you from Zion,
so that you will see the prosperity of Jerusalem
all the days of your life(F)
and will see your children’s children!
Peace be with Israel.(G)

Psalm 129

Protection of the Oppressed

A song of ascents.

Since my youth they have often attacked me—
let Israel say—
since my youth they have often attacked me,
but they have not prevailed against me.(H)
Plowmen plowed over my back;
they made their furrows long.(I)
The Lord is righteous;
he has cut the ropes of the wicked.(J)

Let all who hate Zion
be driven back in disgrace.(K)
Let them be like grass on the rooftops,
which withers before it grows up[a](L)
and can’t even fill the hands of the reaper
or the arms of the one who binds sheaves.(M)
Then none who pass by will say,
“May the Lord’s blessing be on you.
We bless you in the name of the Lord.”(N)

Psalm 130

Awaiting Redemption

A song of ascents.

Out of the depths I call to you, Lord!(O)
Lord, listen to my voice;
let your ears be attentive
to my cry for help.(P)

Lord, if you kept an account of iniquities,
Lord, who could stand?(Q)
But with you there is forgiveness,
so that you may be revered.(R)

I wait for the Lord; I wait
and put my hope in his word.(S)
I wait for the Lord
more than watchmen for the morning—
more than watchmen for the morning.(T)

Israel, put your hope in the Lord.(U)
For there is faithful love with the Lord,
and with him is redemption in abundance.(V)
And he will redeem Israel
from all its iniquities.(W)
