Fear of the Lord

Play
For 26 August 2020, Wednesday of week 21 in Ordinary Time, based on Psalm 128:1-2,4-5

Happy is everyone who fears the Lord,
who walks in his ways.
You shall eat the fruit of the labour of your hands;
you shall be happy, and it shall go well with you.

Thus shall the man be blessed
who fears the Lord.

The Lord bless you from Zion.
May you see the prosperity of Jerusalem
all the days of your life.
