Psalm 127:1-5

(Song of the goings up; of Solomon’s.) 127  If Jehovah is not building a houseits builders have taken useless trouble on it;If Jehovah is not guarding a citya guardsman has been uselessly vigilant. 2  It is useless for you when you get up early,do not sit down till late,Keep busy while you eat;he gives his loved ones the same in sleep. 3  Sons, now, are Jehovah’s allotting;the fruit of a wife’s body is a reward. 4  Like arrows in a champion’s hand,such are the sons of youthful years; 5  Happy the man who has filled his quiver with them.They will not come to grief when they speak with enemies in the gate.
