World English Bible
Your wife will be as a fruitful vine, in the innermost parts of your house; your children like olive plants, around your table.
Young's Literal Translation
Thy wife is as a fruitful vine in the sides of thy house, Thy sons as olive plants around thy table.
Psalm 128:3 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Thy wife shall be as a fruitful vine - Thy children, in every corner and apartment of thy house, shall be the evidences of the fruitfulness of thy wife, as bunches of grapes on every bough of the vine are the proofs of its being in a healthy thriving state. Being about the house sides, or apartments, is spoken of the wife, not the vine; being around the table is spoken of the children, not of the olive-plants. It does not appear that there were any vines planted against the walls of the houses in Jerusalem, nor any olive-trees in pots or tubs in the inside of their houses; as may be found in different parts of Europe.
