[ Read Chapter | Discuss these Verses ]
- 1 Unless the LORD builds R4139 the house, They labor in vain who build it; Unless the LORD guards R4140 the city, The watchman keeps awake in vain. 2 It is vain for you to rise up early, To retire F1406 late, To eat R4141 the bread of painful F1407 labors; For He gives to His beloved R4142 even R4143 in his sleep. 3 Behold, children R4144 are a gift F1408 of the LORD, The fruit R4145 of the womb is a reward. 4 Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, R4146 So are the children of one's youth. 5 How blessed R4147 is the man whose quiver is full of them; They R4148 will not be ashamed When they speak R4149 with their enemies in R4150 the gate.
