1 That man is blest who fears the Lord, And walketh in his ways; For of thy labor thou shalt eat, And prosper all thy days.
2 Thy wife shall as a fruitful vine By thy house sides be found: Thy children like to olive-plants Thy table shall surround.
3 Behold, the man that fears the Lord, Thus blessed shall he be. The Lord shall out of Zion give His blessing unto thee.
4 Thou shalt Jerus'lem's good behold, Whilst thou on earth dost dwell. Thou shalt thy children's children see, And peace on Israel.
1 Blest the man who fears Jehovah,' Walking ever in his ways; Thou shalt eat of thy hands' labor, And be happy all thy days.
2 Like a vine in fruit abounding, In thy house thy wife is found; And like olive-plants, thy children, Compassing thy table round.
3 Lo, on him that fears Jehovah, Shall this blessedness attend; Thus Jehovah out of Zion Shall to thee his blessings send.
