1A song of ascents. Of Solomon. Unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain. Unless the LORD watches over the city, the guards stand watch in vain.
2In vain you rise early and stay up late, toiling for food to eat— for he grants sleep to Or eat— / for while they sleep he provides for those he loves.
