Let your fountain be continually blessed,
and rejoice because of the wife of your youth. Bible

“be continually blessed.” The Hebrew verb, “blessed” is in the participle form, thus occurring over a period of time, hence the translation, “be continually blessed.”

“wife of your youth.” The genitive is almost certainly temporal, and means the wife you married when you were young, rather than meaning the wife you have now while you are young. Stable marriages are an important part of a godly society.
