Geneva Bible Notes (1560): Psalm 128

1 a God approueth not our life, except it be reformed, according to his worde.

2 b The worlde estemeth them happie, which liue in welth and ydlenes: but the holie Gost approueth them best, that liue of the meane profit of their labours.

2 ! He sheweth that blessednes apperteineth not to all vniuersally, but to them onely that feare the Lord and walke in his wayes.

3 c Because Gods fauour appeareth in none outward thing more then in increase of children, he promiseth to enriche the faithful with this gift.

5 e For except God blessed his Church publikely, this priuate blessing were nothing.
