Psalm 127
Douay-Rheims Bible

Unless the Lord Builds

1{126:1}A gradual canticle of Solomon. Unless the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it. Unless the Lord keep the city, he watcheth in vain that keepeth it.

2{126:2}It is vain for you to rise before light, rise ye after you have sitten, you that eat the bread of sorrow. When he shall give sleep to his beloved,

3{126:3}Behold the inheritance of the Lord are children: the reward, the fruit of the womb.

4{126:4}As arrows in the hand of the mighty, so the children of them that have been shaken.

5{126:5}Blessed is the man that hath filled the desire with them; he shall not be confounded when he shall speak to his enemies in the gate.
