Psalm 127
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1A SONG OF THE ASCENTS. BY SOLOMON. If YHWH does not build the house, "" Its builders have labored at it in vain, "" If YHWH does not watch a city, "" A watchman has awoken in vain.

2Vain for you who are rising early, "" Who delay sitting, eating the bread of griefs, "" So He gives sleep to His beloved one.

3Behold, sons [are] an inheritance of YHWH, "" The fruit of the womb [is] a reward.

4As arrows in the hand of a mighty one, "" So [are] the sons of the young men.

5O the blessedness of the man "" Who has filled his quiver with them, "" They are not ashamed, "" For they speak with enemies in the gate!
