Unless the Lord Builds the House

A Song of Ascents. Of Solomon.

1 Unless the LORD builds the house, those who build it labor in vain. Unless the LORD 1watches over the city, the watchman stays awake in vain. 2 It is in vain that you rise up early and go late to rest, eating the bread of anxious 2toil; for he gives to his 3beloved 4sleep. 3 Behold, 5children are a heritage from the LORD, 6the fruit of the womb a reward. 4 Like arrows in the hand of 7a warrior are the childrena of one's youth. 5 Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies 8in the gate.b
