    Definitions for Psalms 128:6

    Yea - Yes; certainly.

    Clarke's Commentary on Psalms 128:6

    Yea, thou shalt see thy children's children - Thou shall not die till thou have seen thy family all settled in the world, and those of them who may be married blessed with children.

    And peace upon Israel - This is the same conclusion as in Psalm 125:1-5; and should be translated, Peace be upon Israel! May God favor his own cause, and bless all his people!

    Barnes' Notes on Psalms 128:6

    Yea, thou shalt see thy children's children - This is a continuation of the idea of blessedness as connected with a numerous posterity - an object of so much interest to the Hebrews (see the notes at Psalm 128:3), and having its foundation in our nature.

    And peace upon Israel - See Psalm 125:5. As the crowning blessing; a blessing above that of success in worldly affairs; above that of seeing a numerous and happy posterity. The love of God is the supreme affection in the mind of a pious man; the desire that his cause may prosper and triumph is to him a supreme desire. Man is truly and completely blessed only in religion.
