Psalm 127 (New International Reader's Version)

View In My Bible

A song for those who go up to Jerusalem to worship the Lord.= A psalm of Solomon.

1 If the LORD doesn't build a house, the work of its builders is useless. If the LORD doesn't watch over a city, it's useless for those on guard duty to stand watch over it. 2 It's useless for you to work from early morning until late at night just to get food to eat. God provides for those he loves even while they sleep. 3 Children are a gift from the Lord. They are a reward from him. 4 Children who are born to people when they are young are like arrows in the hands of a soldier. 5 Blessed are those who have many children. They won't be put to shame when they go up against their enemies in court.
