This is a minor adaptation of the WEB
to include nuanced meanings of particular ancient words for placenames,
God and others of special interest. In general square brackets: are
used to indicated words not found in the original text. It also indicates
the 5 books of the Psalms; and a few passages considered by some to be
of questionable authenticity.
A Song of Ascents. 1Blessed is everyone who fears TheIAM, who walks in his ways. 2For you will eat the labor of your hands. You will be happy, and it will be well with you. 3Your wife will be as a fruitful vine, in the innermost parts of your house; your children like olive plants, around your table. 4Behold, thus is the man blessed who fears TheIAM. 5May TheIAM bless you out of Zion, and may you see the good of Jerusalem all the days of your life. 6Yes, may you see your children's children. Peace be upon Israel.
