Psalm 127

*A Song of degrees ||for Solomon.

Except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it:

Except athe Lord keep the city, the watchman bwaketh but in vain.

It is vain for you cto drise up early, to dsit up celate,

To feat the bread of gsorrows:

For hso he giveth his ibeloved sleep.

Lo, kchildren are an heritage of the Lord:

And lthe fruit of the womb is his reward.

As arrows are in the hand of a mmighty man;

So are nchildren of the youth.

Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them:

oThey shall not be ashamed,

But they ||shall pspeak with the enemies in qthe gate.
