A Song of degrees.
^1Bless'd is each one that fears the Lord,
and walketh in his ways;
^2For of thy labour thou shalt eat,
and happy be always.
^3Thy wife shall as a fruitful vine
by thy house' sides be found:
Thy children like to olive-plants
about thy table round.
^4Behold, the man that fears the Lord,
thus blessed shall he be.
^5The Lord shall out of Sion give
his blessing unto thee:
Thou shalt Jerus'lem's good behold
whilst thou on earth dost dwell.
^6Thou shalt thy children's children see,
and peace on Israel.
