Psalm 128 begins, “Blessed is everyone who fears the Lord, who walks in his ways!” “Blessed” means happy. Reverence was to lead the Psalmist to rejoicing. And not just a moment of rejoicing but a “walk.” Fear of God is more than what you do in a Sunday service; it is a continual walking in obedience to God. And we see in Psalm 128, the fear of God is connected with blessedness. It is clear that the author of this Psalm was familiar with the blessings for obedience in Deuteronomy 28. The people were promised blessing for obedience and curses for disobedience. Notice verse 2 which carries this thought along, “You shall eat the fruit of the labor of your hands; you shall be blessed, and it shall be well with you.” The blessing of God brought him provision. Notice both what the Psalmist does say, and what he does not say.
