Prosperity Comes from the Lord.
A Song of Ascents, of Solomon.1 Unless the Lord a builds the house,
They labor in vain who build it;
Unless the Lord b guards the city,
The watchman keeps awake in vain.
2 It is vain for you to rise up early,
▼ Lit delay sittingretire late,
To d eat the bread of ▼
▼ Lit toilspainful labors;
For He gives to His f beloved g even in his sleep.
3 Behold h children are a ▼
▼ Or heritagegift of the Lord,
The j fruit of the womb is a reward.
4 Like arrows in the hand of a k warrior,
So are the children of one’s youth.
5 How l blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them;
m They will not be ashamed
When they n speak with their enemies o in the gate.
