Psalms 127

Psalms 127

Laboring and Prospering with the Lord
A Song of Ascents. Of Solomon.
1Unless the Lord builds the house,
They labor in vain who build it;
Unless #Is. 61:3the Lord guards the city,
The watchman stays awake in vain.
2It is vain for you to rise up early,
To sit up late,
To #(Ps. 121:3–5)eat the bread of sorrows;
For so He gives His beloved sleep.
3Behold, #(Gen. 3:17, 19)children are a heritage from the Lord,
#(Gen. 33:5; Josh. 24:3, 4; Ps. 113:9)The fruit of the womb is a #Deut. 7:13; 28:4; Is. 13:18reward.
4Like arrows in the hand of a warrior,
So are the children of one’s youth.
5#(Ps. 113:9)Happy is the man who has his quiver full of them;
#Ps. 128:2, 3They shall not be ashamed,
But shall speak with their enemies in the gate.
