Psalm 128

1  Blessed are all those who fear the Lord, 
   and walk in his ways.
2  You shall eat the fruit of the toil of your hands; 
   it shall go well with you, and happy shall you be.
3  Your wife within your house
      shall be like a fruitful vine; 
   your children round your table,
      like fresh olive branches.
4  Thus shall the one be blest 
   who fears the Lord.
5  The Lord from out of Zion bless you, 
   that you may see Jerusalem in prosperity
      all the days of your life.
6  May you see your children’s children, 
   and may there be peace upon Israel.

Psalm 129

1  ‘Many a time have they fought against me from my youth,’ 
   may Israel now say;
2  ‘Many a time have they fought against me from my youth, 
   but they have not prevailed against me.’
3  The ploughers ploughed upon my back 
   and made their furrows long.
4  But the righteous Lord 
   has cut the cords of the wicked in pieces.
5  Let them be put to shame and turned backwards, 
   as many as are enemies of Zion.
6  Let them be like grass upon the housetops, 
   which withers before it can grow,
7  So that no reaper can fill his hand, 
   nor a binder of sheaves his bosom;
8  And none who go by may say,
      ‘The blessing of the Lord be upon you. 
   We bless you in the name of the Lord.’
