Psalms 1271Unless Jehovah builds the house, they labor in vain who build it. Unless Jehovah guards the city, the watchman wake 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 gives sleep to his beloved. 3Lo, sons are a heritage of Jehovah, and the fruit of the womb is a reward. 4As arrows in the hand of a mighty man, so are the sons of youth. 5Happy is the man who has his quiver full of them. They shall not be put to shame when they speak with their enemies in the gate.
