Psalms Chapter 127 – Virtue of God’s blessing. (A Song of degrees for Solomon.)

1 Except the Lord build the house, they labor in vain that build it; except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.


2 It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows; for so he giveth his beloved sleep.


3 Lo, children are a heritage of the Lord; and the fruit of the womb is his reward.


4 As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth.


5 Happy 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.
