Psalms 128:3-4

Context

128:3 Your wife will be like a fruitful vine 1 

in the inner rooms of your house;

your children 2  will be like olive branches,

as they sit all around your table.

128:4 Yes indeed, the man who fears the Lord

will be blessed in this way. 3 

1 sn The metaphor of the fruitful vine pictures the wife as fertile; she will give her husband numerous children (see the next line).

2 tn One could translate “sons” (see Ps 127:3 and the note on the word “sons” there), but here the term seems to refer more generally to children of both genders.

3 tn Heb “look, indeed thus will the man, the fearer of the Lord, be blessed.”
