Behold, (A)children are a heritage from the Lord,
    (B)the fruit of the womb a reward.
Like arrows in the hand of (C)a warrior
    are the children[a] of one's youth.
Blessed is the man
    who fills his quiver with them!
He shall not be put to shame
    when he speaks with his enemies (D)in the gate.[b]
