A Song of degrees for Solomon.

¶ Unless the LORD builds the house, they labour in vain that build it; unless the LORD keeps the city, the watchmen watch in vain.

It is vain for you to rise up early, to come home late, to eat the bread of sorrows, because he shall give his beloved sleep.

Behold, sons are a heritage of the LORD, and the fruit of the womb is to be desired.

As arrows in the hand of a mighty man, so are the young men.

Happy is the man that has filled his quiver with them: he shall not be ashamed when he speaks with the enemies in the gate.
