12 Then our sons in their youth will be like well-nurtured plants, and our daughters will be like pillars carved to adorn a palace.

Read Psalm 144:12 Using Other Translations

That our sons may be as plants grown up in their youth; that our daughters may be as corner stones, polished after the similitude of a palace:
May our sons in their youth be like plants full grown, our daughters like corner pillars cut for the structure of a palace;
May our sons flourish in their youth like well-nurtured plants. May our daughters be like graceful pillars, carved to beautify a palace.
