  Psalms 128 [Commentary] [Map] Biblical Art and Illustrations
1 A Song of Ascents. How blessed is everyone who fears the LORD,
Who walks in His ways.
2 When you shall eat of the fruit of your hands,
You will be happy and it will be well with you.
3 Your wife shall be like a fruitful vine
Within your house,
Your children like olive plants
Around your table.
4 Behold, for thus shall the man be blessed
Who fears the LORD.
5 The LORD bless you from Zion,
And may you see the prosperity of Jerusalem all the days of your life.
6 Indeed, may you see your children's children.
Peace be upon Israel!
  Psalms 129 [Commentary] [Map] Biblical Art and Illustrations
1 A Song of Ascents. "Many times they have persecuted me from my youth up,"
Let Israel now say,
2 "Many times they have persecuted me from my youth up;
Yet they have not prevailed against me.
3 "The plowers plowed upon my back;
They lengthened their furrows."
4 The LORD is righteous;
He has cut in two the cords of the wicked.
5 May all who hate Zion
Be put to shame and turned backward;
6 Let them be like grass upon the housetops,
Which withers before it grows up;
7 With which the reaper does not fill his hand,
Or the binder of sheaves his bosom;
8 Nor do those who pass by say,
"The blessing of the LORD be upon you;
We bless you in the name of the LORD."
  Psalms 130 [Commentary] Biblical Art and Illustrations
1 A Song of Ascents. Out of the depths I have cried to You, O LORD.
2 Lord, hear my voice!
Let Your ears be attentive
To the voice of my supplications.
3 If You, LORD, should mark iniquities,
O Lord, who could stand?
4 But there is forgiveness with You,
That You may be feared.
5 I wait for the LORD, my soul does wait,
And in His word do I hope.
6 My soul waits for the Lord
More than the watchmen for the morning;
Indeed, more than the watchmen for the morning.
7 O Israel, hope in the LORD;
For with the LORD there is lovingkindness,
And with Him is abundant redemption.
8 And He will redeem Israel
From all his iniquities.
