Beáti ómnes qui tíment Dóminum,
Qui ámbulant in víis éjjus.
Labóres mánuum tuárum
quía manducábis,
Beátus es,
et béne tíbi érit.
Uxor túa sícut vítis abúndans,
In latéribus dómus túae.

Fílii túi, sícut novéllae olivárum,
In circúitu ménsae túae.
Ecce sic benedicétur hómo
Qui tímet Dóminum.
Benedícat tíbi Dóminus ex Síon,
Et vídeas bóna Jerúsalem
ómnibus diébus vítae túae;
Et vídeas fílios filiórum tuórum,
Pácem super Israel.

English.png English translation

Blessed are all who fear the Lord,
Who walk in his ways.
The labors of your hands
mean you will eat;
You are blessed,
and it will be well with you.
Your wife fruitful like a vine,
within the bricks of your house.

Your children, like olive shoots,
Around your table.
Behold, thus will one be blessed
Who fears the Lord.
May the Lord bless you from Zion,
and may you see the goods of Jerusalem
all the days of your life;
And may you see your children's children,
Peace be upon Israel.
