New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
3 Children are a gift from the LORD; they are a reward from him. 3 Sons are a heritage from the LORD, children a reward from him.
4 Children born to a young man are like sharp arrows in a warrior's hands. 4 Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are sons born in one's youth.
5 How happy is the man whose quiver is full of them! He will not be put to shame when he confronts his accusers at the city gates. 5 Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they contend with their enemies in the gate.
