From the Blue Letter Bible
New King James Version
|Psa 127:1||A Song of Ascents. Of Solomon. Unless the LORD builds the house, They labor in vain who build it; Unless the LORD guards the city, The watchman stays awake in vain.|
|Psa 127:2||It is vain for you to rise up early, To sit up late, To eat the bread of sorrows; For so He gives His beloved sleep.|
|Psa 127:3||Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, The fruit of the womb is a reward.|
|Psa 127:4||Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, So are the children of one's youth.|
|Psa 127:5||Happy is the man who has his quiver full of them; They shall not be ashamed, But shall speak with their enemies in the gate.|
