Psalms 127

A Song of degrees for Solomon.


Except the LORD shall build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD shall keep the city, the watchman waketh in vain.
for...: or, of Solomon
that...: Heb. that are builders of it in it
2It is vain for you to rise early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows: for so he giveth his beloved sleep. 3Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. 4As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth. 5Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.
his...: Heb. filled his quiver with them
speak...: or, subdue, or, destroy
