Commentary
Barnes' Notes on the Bible

Yea, thou shalt see thy children's children - This is a continuation of the idea of blessedness as connected with a numerous posterity - an object of so much interest to the Hebrews (see the notes at Psalm 128:3), and having its foundation in our nature.

Man is truly and completely blessed only in religion.

It is the speech of the soul face to face with God. Its words are as simple and unaffected as human words can be, for it is the genius
