The Measure of a Blessed Father

Psalm 128 New King James Version (NKJV)

1 Blessed is every one who fears the Lord,
Who walks in His ways.

2 When you eat the [a]labor of your hands,
You shall be happy, and it shall be well with you.

3 Your wife shall be like a fruitful vine
In the very heart of your house,
Your children like olive plants
All around your table.

4 Behold, thus shall the man be blessed
Who fears the Lord.

5 The Lord bless you out of Zion,
And may you see the good of Jerusalem
All the days of your life.

6 Yes, may you see your children’s children.

Peace be upon Israel!
