A Song of Degrees.
Blessed are all they that fear the Lord; who walk in his ways. Thou shalt eat the * Alex. fruits of thy labours.labours of thy hands: blessed art thou, and it shall be well with thee. Thy wife shall be as a fruitful vine on the sides of thy house: thy children as young olive-plants round about thy table.
Behold, thus shall the man be blessed that fears the Lord. May the Lord bless thee out of Sion; and mayest thou see the prosperity of Jerusalem all the days of thy life. And mayest thou see thy children's children. Peace be upon Israel.

*127:2 Alex. fruits of thy labours.
