Psalm 128-130 King James Version

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

The Blessedness of Him Who Fears the LORD

128 Blessed is every one that feareth the Lord; that walketh in his ways. 2  For thou shalt eat the labour of thine hands: happy shalt thou be, and it shall be well with thee. 3  Thy wife shall be as a fruitful vine by the sides of thine house: thy children like olive plants round about thy table. 4  Behold, that thus shall the man be blessed that feareth the Lord. 5  The Lord shall bless thee out of Zion: and thou shalt see the good of Jerusalem all the days of thy life. 6  Yea, thou shalt see thy children's children, and peace upon Israel.

A Prayer for the Overthrow of Zion's Enemies

129 Many a time have they afflicted me from my youth, may Israel now say: 2  Many a time have they afflicted me from my youth: yet they have not prevailed against me. 3  The plowers plowed upon my back: they made long their furrows. 4  The Lord is righteous: he hath cut asunder the cords of the wicked.

5  Let them all be confounded and turned back that hate Zion. 6  Let them be as the grass upon the housetops, which withereth afore it groweth up: 7  Wherewith the mower filleth not his hand; nor he that bindeth sheaves his bosom. 8  Neither do they which go by say, The blessing of the Lord be upon you: we bless you in the name of the Lord.

Hope in the LORD's Redemption

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

5  I wait for the Lord, my soul doth wait, and in his word do I hope. 6  My soul waiteth for the Lord more than they that watch for the morning: I say, more than they that watch [1] for the morning. 7  Let Israel hope in the Lord: for with the Lord there is mercy, and with him is plenteous redemption. 8  And he shall redeem Israel from all his iniquities.
