Psalm 128

1Happy is everyone who fears the Lord, who walks in his ways.

2You shall eat the fruit of the labor of your hands; you shall be happy, and it shall go well with you.

3Your wife will be like a fruitful vine within your house; your children will be like olive shoots around your table.

4Thus shall the man be blessed who fears the Lord.

5The Lord bless you from Zion. May you see the prosperity of Jerusalem all the days of your life.

6May you see your children’s children. Peace be upon Israel!

Psalm 129

1“Often have they attacked me from my youth” —let Israel now say—

2“often have they attacked me from my youth, yet they have not prevailed against me.

3The plowers plowed on my back; they made their furrows long.”

4The Lord is righteous; he has cut the cords of the wicked.

5May all who hate Zion be put to shame and turned backward.

6Let them be like the grass on the housetops that withers before it grows up,

7with which reapers do not fill their hands or binders of sheaves their arms,

8while those who pass by do not say, “The blessing of the Lord be upon you! We bless you in the name of the Lord!”

Psalm 130

1Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord.

2Lord, hear my voice! Let your ears be attentive to the voice of my supplications!

3If you, O Lord, should mark iniquities, Lord, who could stand?

4But there is forgiveness with you, so that you may be revered.

5I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in his word I hope;

6my soul waits for the Lord more than those who watch for the morning, more than those who watch for the morning.

7O Israel, hope in the Lord! For with the Lord there is steadfast love, and with him is great power to redeem.

8It is he who will redeem Israel from all its iniquities.
