Final Thoughts on Psalm 128:2
When you eat the labor of your hands, You shall be happy, and it shall be well with you. NKJV
The promise in this verse is that a man’s work will be fruitful and that the man who performs it will enjoy the recompense of his work. It is a grievous evil for a man to slave his life away in work and not enjoy the fruit of his labor (Ecclesiastes 5:18-19).
Sadly, some men never enjoy their work, for they give themselves no time to rest. Their eagerness to get robs them of their ability to enjoy what they get.
Nothing is better for a man than that he should eat and drink and that his soul should enjoy good in his labor. This also, I saw, was from the hand of God. Ecclesiastes 2:24 NKJV
