Project 119: Psalm 128 & Psalm 129

 |  Project 119

Morning: Psalm 128 (ESV):

Blessed Is Everyone Who Fears the LORD

A Song of Ascents.

1 Blessed is everyone who fears the LORD,

who walks in his ways!

2 You shall eat the fruit of the labor of your hands;

you shall be blessed, and it shall be well with you.


3 Your wife will be like a fruitful vine

within your house;

your children will be like olive shoots

around your table.

4 Behold, thus shall the man be blessed

who fears the LORD.


5 The LORD bless you from Zion!

May you see the prosperity of Jerusalem

all the days of your life!

6 May you see your children’s children!

Peace be upon Israel!

Evening: Psalm 129 (ESV):

They Have Afflicted Me from My Youth

A Song of Ascents.

1 “Greatly have they afflicted me from my youth”—

let Israel now say—

2 “Greatly have they afflicted me from my youth,

yet they have not prevailed against me.

3 The plowers plowed upon my back;

they made long their furrows.”

4 The LORD is righteous;

he has cut the cords of the wicked.

5 May all who hate Zion

be put to shame and turned backward!

6 Let them be like the grass on the housetops,

which withers before it grows up,

7 with which the reaper does not fill his hand

nor the binder of sheaves his arms,

8 nor do those who pass by say,

“The blessing of the LORD be upon you!

We bless you in the name of the LORD!”
