Tehillim - Psalms 127

1A Song of Ascents; of Solomon.

Except the Lord build the house,They labour in vain that build it;Except the Lord keep the city,The watchman waketh but in vain.

2It is vain for you that ye rise early, and sit up late,Ye that eat the bread of toil;So He giveth unto His beloved in sleep.
3Lo, children are a heritage of the Lord;The fruit of the womb is a reward.
4As arrows in the hand of a mighty man,So are the children of one’s youth.
5Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them;They shall not be put to shame,When they speak with their enemies in the gate.
