Psalms 128:4

Context

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

will be blessed in this way. 5 

1 sn Psalm 128. The psalmist observes that the godly individual has genuine happiness because the Lord rewards such a person with prosperity and numerous children.

2 sn The precise significance of this title, which appears in Pss 120-134, is unclear. Perhaps worshipers recited these psalms when they ascended the road to Jerusalem to celebrate annual religious festivals. For a discussion of their background see L. C. Allen, Psalms 101-150 (WBC), 219-21.

3 tn Heb “every fearer of the Lord.”

4 tn Heb “the one who walks in his ways.”

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