1A Song of Ascents. Of Solomon. Unless the LORD builds the house, its builders labor in vain; unless the LORD protects the city, its watchmen stand guard in vain. 1שִׁ֥יר הַֽמַּֽעֲל֗וֹת לִשְׁלֹ֫מֹ֥ה אִם־ יְהוָ֤ה ׀ לֹא־ יִבְנֶ֬ה בַ֗יִת שָׁ֤וְא ׀ עָמְל֣וּ בוֹנָ֣יו בּ֑וֹ אִם־ יְהוָ֥ה לֹֽא־ יִשְׁמָר־ עִ֝֗יר שָׁ֤וְא ׀ שָׁקַ֬ד שׁוֹמֵֽר׃
2In vain you rise early and stay up late, toiling for bread to eat— for He gives sleep to His beloved. 2שָׁ֤וְא לָכֶ֨ם ׀ מַשְׁכִּ֪ימֵי ק֡וּם מְאַֽחֲרֵי־ שֶׁ֗בֶת אֹ֭כְלֵי לֶ֣חֶם הָעֲצָבִ֑ים כֵּ֤ן יִתֵּ֖ן לִֽידִיד֣וֹ שֵׁנָֽא׃
3Children are indeed a heritage from the LORD, [and] the fruit of the womb [is His] reward. 3הִנֵּ֤ה נַחֲלַ֣ת יְהוָ֣ה בָּנִ֑ים שָׂ֝כָ֗ר פְּרִ֣י הַבָּֽטֶן׃
4Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, so [are] children [born in] one’s youth. 4כְּחִצִּ֥ים בְּיַד־ גִּבּ֑וֹר כֵּ֝֗ן בְּנֵ֣י הַנְּעוּרִֽים׃
5Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. He will not be put to shame when he confronts the enemies at the gate. 5אַשְׁרֵ֤י הַגֶּ֗בֶר אֲשֶׁ֤ר מִלֵּ֥א אֶת־ אַשְׁפָּת֗וֹ מֵ֫הֶ֥ם לֹֽא־ יֵבֹ֑שׁוּ כִּֽי־ יְדַבְּר֖וּ אֶת־ אוֹיְבִ֣ים בַּשָּֽׁעַר׃
