Psalm 128-130 World English Bible

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

The Blessedness of Him Who Fears the LORD

128 1  Blessed is everyone who fears Yahweh,
who walks in his ways. 2  For you will eat the labor of your hands.
You will be happy, and it will be well with you. 3  Your wife will be as a fruitful vine,
in the innermost parts of your house;
your children like olive plants,
around your table. 4  Behold, thus is the man blessed who fears Yahweh. 5  May Yahweh bless you out of Zion,
and may you see the good of Jerusalem all the days of your life. 6  Yes, may you see your children’s children.
Peace be upon Israel.

A Prayer for the Overthrow of Zion's Enemies

129 1  Many times they have afflicted me from my youth up.
Let Israel now say, 2  many times they have afflicted me from my youth up,
yet they have not prevailed against me. 3  The plowers plowed on my back.
They made their furrows long. 4  Yahweh is righteous.
He has cut apart the cords of the wicked.

5  Let them be disappointed and turned backward,
all those who hate Zion. 6  Let them be as the grass on the housetops,
which withers before it grows up; 7  with which the reaper doesn’t fill his hand,
nor he who binds sheaves, his bosom. 8  Neither do those who go by say,
“The blessing of Yahweh be on you.
We bless you in the name of Yahweh.”

Hope in the LORD's Redemption

130 1  Out of the depths I have cried to you, Yahweh. 2  Lord, hear my voice.
Let your ears be attentive to the voice of my petitions. 3  If you, Yah, kept a record of sins,
Lord, who could stand? 4  But there is forgiveness with you,
therefore you are feared.

5  I wait for Yahweh.
My soul waits.
I hope in his word. 6  My soul longs for the Lord more than watchmen long for the morning;
more than watchmen for the morning. 7  Israel, hope in Yahweh,
for with Yahweh there is loving kindness.
With him is abundant redemption. 8  He will redeem Israel from all their sins.
