  1. Blessed are all who fear the LORD, who walk in his ways..
    You will eat the fruit of your labor ; blessings and prosperity will be yours..
    Your wife will be like a fruitful vine within your house ; your sons will be like olive shoots around your table..
    Thus is the man blessed who fears the LORD..
    Go,eat your food with gladness,and drink your wine with a joyful heart, for it is now that God favors what you do..
    Always be clothed in white,and anoint your head with oil..
    Enjoy life with your (wife),whom you love at your youth,all the days of this meaningless life that God has given you under the sun_ all your meaningless days..
    For this is your lot in life and in your toilsome labour under the d’un..
