|Psalms 127 |
1 Unless the LORD builds the house, those who build it labor in vain; unless the LORD guards the city, the watchman wakes only in vain.
2 It is vain for you to rise up early, to stay late, to eat the bread of sorrows; for he gives his beloved sleep.
3 Lo, children are a heritage of the LORD, and the fruit of the womb is his reward.
4 As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man, so are children of one's youth.
5 Happy is the man who has his quiver full of them. They will not be ashamed, when they shall speak with their enemies at the gate.
