A. 1 Blessed (eser) is every one that feareth the LORD;
that walketh in his ways.
B. 2 For thou shalt eat the labour of thine hands:
happy (eser) shalt thou be, and it shall be well (tob) with thee.
C.3 Thy wife shall be as a fruitful vine by the sides of thine house:
thy children like olive plants round about thy table.
A’. 4 Behold, that thus shall the man be blessed (barak) that feareth the LORD.
B’. 5 The LORD shall bless (barak) thee out of Zion:
and thou shalt see the good (tub) of Jerusalem all the days of thy life.
C’. 6 Yea, thou shalt see thy children’s children,
and peace upon Israel.
