Devotional Readings, Reflections on Israel

Psalm 128 – One of our devotional readings

So I am finding all too many connections in the context of daily reading. It’s not likely I can comment on each, but this Psalm was one of our daily readings on the bus.

I particularly find it useful to read the text in the Old KJV.
I avoided that for the first 63 years of my life, until some one encouraged me to pick it up just over 3 years ago. This is part of my own journey, which I have not regretted….and continue with still today.
Jer 6:16  Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein.

Here is the text of Psalm 128 and the audio, which you might listen to more than once.
We all pray for peace upon Israel.

Psa 128:1  A Song of degrees. Blessed is every one that feareth the LORD; that walketh in his ways.

Psa 128:2  For thou shalt eat the labour of thine hands: happy shalt thou be, and it shall be well with thee.

Psa 128:3  Thy wife shall be as a fruitful vine by the sides of thine house: thy children like olive plants round about thy table.

Psa 128:4  Behold, that thus shall the man be blessed that feareth the LORD.

Psa 128:5  The LORD shall bless thee out of Zion: and thou shalt see the good of Jerusalem all the days of thy life.

Psa 128:6  Yea, thou shalt see thy children’s children, and peace upon Israel.
