Psalms 127

1

  A Song of the Ascents, by Solomon. If Jehovah doth not build the house, In vain have its builders laboured at it, If Jehovah doth not watch a city, In vain hath a watchman waked.

2

  Vain for you who are rising early, Who delay sitting, eating the bread of griefs, So He giveth to His beloved one sleep.

3

  Lo, an inheritance of Jehovah [are] sons, A reward [is] the fruit of the womb.

4

  As arrows in the hand of a mighty one, So [are] the sons of the young men.

5

  O the happiness of the man Who hath filled his quiver with them, They are not ashamed, For they speak with enemies in the gate!
