Children are a Heritage from the LORD1 A Song of Ascents. Of Solomon. Unless the LORD builds the house, its builders labor in vain; unless the LORD protects the city, its watchmen stand guard in vain. 2 In vain you rise early and stay up late, toiling for bread to eat— for He gives sleep to His beloved. 3 Children are indeed a heritage from the LORD, [and] the fruit of the womb [is His] reward. 4 Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, so [are] children [born in] one’s youth. 5 Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. He will not be put to shame when he confronts the enemies at the gate.
