Yahweh gives prosperity (Ps 128:5-128:6)

“Yahweh blesses you from Zion!

May you see the prosperity of Jerusalem

All the days of your life!

May you see your children’s children!

Peace be upon Israel!”

Prosperity comes in two ways, one is in the city of Jerusalem and the other is your family. Yahweh will bless you from Mount Zion. You will see the prosperity of Jerusalem all the days of your life. Of course, we have the famous phrase, may you see your children’s children, and have grandchildren. This short psalm ends with the Shalom peace to all Israel. So we have Yahweh’s prosperity, peace in Israel, prosperity in Jerusalem, and a long life to see your grandchildren live.
