Good News Translation
The Reward of Obedience to the Lord
1Happy are those who obey the Lord,
who live by his commands.
2Your work will provide for your needs;
you will be happy and prosperous.
3Your wife will be like a fruitful vine in your home,
and your children will be like young olive trees around your table.
4A man who obeys the Lord
will surely be blessed like this.
5May the Lord bless you from Zion!
May you see Jerusalem prosper
all the days of your life!
6May you live to see your grandchildren!
Peace be with Israel!
