Psalms - Chapter 128

The King James Version Basic English Version (BBE)

1 Blessed is every one that feareth the LORD; that walketh in his ways.

1 <A Song of the going up.> Happy is the worshipper of the Lord, who is walking in his ways.

2 For thou shalt eat the labour of thine hands: happy shalt thou be, and it shall be well with thee.

2 You will have the fruit of the work of your hands: happy will you be, and all will be well for you.

3 Thy wife shall be as a fruitful vine by the sides of thine house: thy children like olive plants round about thy table.

3 Your wife will be like a fertile vine in the inmost parts of your house: your children will be like olive plants round your table.

4 Behold, that thus shall the man be blessed that feareth the LORD.

4 See! this is the blessing of the worshipper of 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.

5 May the Lord send you blessing out of Zion: may you see the good of Jerusalem all the days of your life.

6 Yea, thou shalt see thy children's children, and peace upon Israel.

6 May you see your children's children. Peace be on Israel.
