The Reward of Obedience to the Lord

128 Happy are those who obey the Lord,
    who live by his commands.

Your work will provide for your needs;
    you will be happy and prosperous.
Your wife will be like a fruitful vine in your home,
    and your children will be like young olive trees around your table.
A man who obeys the Lord
    will surely be blessed like this.

May the Lord bless you from Zion!
    May you see Jerusalem prosper
    all the days of your life!
May you live to see your grandchildren!

Peace be with Israel!
