Blessed is everyone who fears the Lord! To be blessed means to go through life with a settled happiness that comes from a relationship with Christ. To live our human lives in a way that they were supposed to be lived.
To fear the Lord means we live life as if we actually understand God exists and that we must be obedient to him and remember his great sacrifice for us. This blessing is available to all who are willing to humble themselves and fear the Lord.
Blessed Is Everyone Who Fears the Lord
A Song of Ascents.
1 Blessed is everyone who fears the Lord, who walks in his ways! 2 You shall eat the fruit of the labor of your hands; you shall be blessed, and it shall be well with you.
3 Your wife will be like a fruitful vine within your house; your children will be like olive shoots around your table. 4 Behold, thus shall the man be blessed who fears the Lord.
5 The Lord bless you from Zion! May you see the prosperity of Jerusalem all the days of your life! 6 May you see your children's children! Peace be upon Israel!
