Psalm 127

NIRV 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. NIV 1 Unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain. Unless the LORD watches over the city, the guards stand watch in vain. NIRV 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. NIV 2 In vain you rise early and stay up late, toiling for food to eat— for he grants sleep to those he loves. NIRV 3 Children are a gift from the Lord. They are a reward from him. NIV 3 Children are a heritage from the LORD, offspring a reward from him. NIRV 4 Children who are born to people when they are young are like arrows in the hands of a soldier. NIV 4 Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are children born in one’s youth. NIRV 5 Blessed are those who have many children. They won't be put to shame when they go up against their enemies in court. NIV 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.
