The curse of the LORD is on the house of the wicked,
But He blesses the home of the just.
The wicked are overthrown and are no more,
But the house of the righteous will stand.
Observe and obey all these words which I command you, that it may go well with you and your children after you forever, when you do what is good and right in the sight of the LORD your God.
All your children shall be taught by the LORD,
And great shall be the peace of your children.
Praise the LORD!
Blessed is the man who fears the LORD,
Who delights greatly in His commandments.
His descendants will be mighty on earth;
The generation of the upright will be blessed.
Wealth and riches will be in his house,
And his righteousness endures forever.
Train up a child in the way he should go,
And when he is old he will not depart from it.
Blessed is every one who fears the LORD,
Who walks in His ways.
When you eat the labour of your hands,
You shall be happy, and it shall be well with you.
Your wife shall be like a fruitful vine
In the very heart of your house,
Your children like olive plants
All around your table.
You shall therefore keep His statutes and His commandments which I command you today, that it may go well with you and with your children after you, and that you may prolong your days in the land which the LORD your God is giving you for all time.”
“Honour your father and mother,” which is the first commandment with promise: “that it may be well with you and you may live long on the earth.”
