Psalm 127

A Song of Ascents; of Solomon.

127 1Except Jehovah build the house,

They labor in vain that build it:

Except Jehovah keep the city,

The watchman waketh but in vain.

2It is vain for you to rise up early,

To take rest late,

To eat the bread of toil;

For so he giveth unto his beloved asleep.

3Lo, children are a heritage of Jehovah;

And the fruit of the womb is his reward.

4As arrows in the hand of a mighty man,

So are the children of youth.

5Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them:

They shall not be put to shame,

When they speak with their enemies in the gate.
