Psalm 128-130 Darby’s Translation

<< 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 labour 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 inner part 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 will bless thee out of Zion; and mayest thou see the good of Jerusalem all the days of thy life, 6  And see 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—oh let Israel say— 2  Many a time have they afflicted me from my youth; yet they have not prevailed against me. 3  The ploughers ploughed 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 ashamed and turned backward, all that hate Zion; 6  Let them be as the grass upon the house-tops, which withereth before it is plucked up, 7  Wherewith the mower filleth not his hand, nor he that bindeth sheaves his bosom; 8  Neither do the passers-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 do I call upon thee, Jehovah. 2  Lord, hear my voice; let thine ears be attentive to the voice of my supplication. 3  If thou, Jah, shouldest mark iniquities, Lord, who shall 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 the watchers [wait] for the morning, [more than] the watchers for the morning. 7  Let Israel hope in Jehovah, because with Jehovah there is loving-kindness, and with him is plenteous redemption; 8  And he will redeem Israel from all his iniquities.
