Psalm 128-130 American Standard Version

<< Psalm 127 | Psalm 128-130 | Psalm 131 >>

The Blessedness of Him Who Fears the LORD

128 1  Blessed is every one that feareth Jehovah, That walketh in his ways. 2  For thou shalt eat the labor of thy hands: Happy shalt thou be, and it shall be well with thee. 3  Thy wife shall be as a fruitful vine, In the innermost parts of thy house; Thy children like olive plants, Round about thy table. 4  Behold, thus shall the man be blessed That feareth Jehovah. 5  Jehovah bless thee out of Zion: And see thou the good of Jerusalem all the days of thy life. 6  Yea, see thou thy children's children. Peace be upon Israel.

A Prayer for the Overthrow of Zion's Enemies

129 1  Many a time have they afflicted me from my youth up, Let Israel now say, 2  Many a time have they afflicted me from my youth up: Yet they have not prevailed against me. 3  The plowers plowed upon my back; They made long their furrows. 4  Jehovah is righteous: He hath cut asunder the cords of the wicked.

5  Let them be put to shame and turned backward, All they that hate Zion. 6  Let them be as the grass upon the housetops, Which withereth before it groweth up; 7  Wherewith the reaper filleth not his hand, Nor he that bindeth sheaves his bosom. 8  Neither do they that go by say, The blessing of Jehovah be upon you; We bless you in the name of Jehovah.

Hope in the LORD's Redemption

130 1  Out of the depths have I cried unto thee, O Jehovah. 2  Lord, hear my voice: Let thine ears be attentive To the voice of my supplications. 3  If thou, Jehovah, shouldest mark iniquities, O Lord, who could stand? 4  But there is forgiveness with thee, That thou mayest be feared.

5  I wait for Jehovah, my soul doth wait, And in his word do I hope. 6  My soul [waiteth] for the Lord More than watchmen [wait] for the morning; [Yea, more than] watchmen for the morning. 7  O Israel, hope in Jehovah; For with Jehovah there is lovingkindness, And with him is plenteous redemption. 8  And he will redeem Israel From all his iniquities.
