The Need of God's Blessing

1A song of ascents. Of Solomon.

I

Unless the LORD build the house, they labor in vain who build. Unless the LORD guard the city, in vain does the guard keep watch. 2It is vain for you to rise early and put off your rest at night, To eat bread earned by hard toil— all this God gives to his beloved in sleep. k Eccl 2, 24 .

II

3Children too are a gift from the LORD, the fruit of the womb, a reward. l Pss 115, 14; 128, 3; Dt 28, 11; Prv 17, 6 . 4Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children born in one's youth. 5Blessed are they whose quivers are full. They will never be shamed contending with foes at the gate.*

Notes:

k: Eccl 2, 24 .

l: Pss 115, 14; 128, 3; Dt 28, 11; Prv 17, 6 .
