|<< Psalm 127 >>|
Aramaic Bible in Plain English
If Lord Jehovah does not build the house, its builders labor uselessly, and if Lord Jehovah does not keep the city, its keepers wake up uselessly.
2Those who will rise early and are late to sit down eating bread, in sorrows, are worthless, so he will give his beloved ones sleep.
3For the inheritance of Lord Jehovah is children, the reward of the fruit of the womb.
4Like an arrow in the hand of a warrior, so are the children of the youth.
5Blessed is the man who will fill his quiver with them, and they will not be ashamed when speaking with the enemy in the gate.
