The LORD Guards
An ode of the steps.1 Unless the lord built the house, [4in 5vain 3tired 1the 2builders]. Unless the lord guarded the city, [4in 5vain 3stayed awake 1the 2one guarding]. 2 For [2vain 3for you 1it is] to rise up early; you arise after sitting down, O ones eating the bread of grief, whenever he should give [2to 3his beloved ones 1sleep]. 3 Behold, the inheritance of the lord, O sons, the wage of the fruit of the womb. 4 As arrows in the hand of the mighty, so are the sons of the ones being shaken off. 5 Blessed is the one who shall fill his desire with them; they shall not be disgraced whenever they should speak to his enemies at the gates.
