God's blessing on family life: Psalm 128:1 - 6 pt 1

1 Blessed are all who fear the LORD, who walk in his ways.
2 You will eat the fruit of your labor; blessings and prosperity will be yours.
3 Your wife will be like a fruitful vine within your house;
your sons will be like olive shoots around your table.
4 Thus is the man blessed who fears the LORD.
5 May the LORD bless you from Zion all the days of your life;
may you see the prosperity of Jerusalem,
6 and may you live to see your children’s children. Peace be upon Israel.

Psalm 128 is called the marriage psalm because it was often sung at weddings. God’s blessing to all who reverence Him and who honour Him in their everyday lives (vs 1 & 4) is seen working out in family life.
