The Blessing of the LORD

A song of ascents. Of Solomon.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 127:1 -

Unless the LORD builds a house,

its builders labor over it in vain;

unless the LORD watches over a city,

the watchman stays alert in vain.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 127:2 -

In vain you get up early and stay up late,

working hard to have enough food ​— ​

yes, he gives sleep to the one he loves.[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 127:3 -

Sons are indeed a heritage from the LORD,

offspring, a reward.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 127:4 -

Like arrows in the hand of a warrior

are the sons born in one’s youth.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 127:5 -

Happy is the man who has filled his quiver with them.

They will never be put to shame

when they speak with their enemies at the city gate.
