Psalms 127 - NIV

A 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.

2 In vain you rise early
and stay up late,
toiling for food to eat—
for he grants sleep to[a] those he loves.


Children are a heritage from the Lord,
offspring a reward from him.

4 Like arrows in the hands of a warrior
are children born in one’s youth.

5 Blessed is the man
whose quiver is full of them.
They will not be put to shame
when they contend with their opponents in court.


a. Psalms 127:2 Or eat—for while they sleep he provides for
