Psalms 128:5

Context

128:5 May the Lord bless you 1  from Zion,

that you might see 2  Jerusalem 3  prosper

all the days of your life,

1 tn The prefixed verbal form is understood as a jussive of prayer (note the imperatives that are subordinated to this clause in vv. 5b-6a). Having described the blessings that typically come to the godly, the psalmist concludes by praying that this ideal may become reality for the representative godly man being addressed.

2 tn The imperative with prefixed vav (ו) conjunctive indicates purpose/result after the preceding jussive.
