They labor in vain that build it:
The watchman waketh but in vain.
127:2It is vain for you to rise up early,
To take rest late,
For so he giveth unto his beloved sleep.
127:3Lo, children are a heritage of Jehovah;
And the fruit of the womb is his reward.
So are the children of youth.
127:5Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them:
They shall not be put to shame,
When they speak with their enemies in the gate.
