Psalm 127 *Except Jehovah Build the House They Labour in Vain*

Chapter 127 *Except Jehovah Build the House They Labour in Vain*

א שִׁיר הַמַּעֲלוֹת, לִשְׁלֹמֹה:

אִם-יְהוָה, לֹא-יִבְנֶה בַיִת– שָׁוְא עָמְלוּ בוֹנָיו בּוֹ;

אִם-יְהוָה לֹא-יִשְׁמָר-עִיר, שָׁוְא שָׁקַד שׁוֹמֵר. 1

A Song of Ascents; of Solomon. {N}

Except jehovah build the house, they labour in vain that build it; {N}

except jehovah keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.

*Except Jehovah Build the House They Labour in Vain*

ב שָׁוְא לָכֶם מַשְׁכִּימֵי קוּם, מְאַחֲרֵי-שֶׁבֶת–

אֹכְלֵי, לֶחֶם הָעֲצָבִים;

כֵּן יִתֵּן לִידִידוֹ שֵׁנָא. 2

It is vain for you that ye rise early, and sit up late, {N}

ye that eat the bread of toil; {N}

so He giveth unto His beloved in sleep.

*Except Jehovah Build the House They Labour in Vain*

ג הִנֵּה נַחֲלַת יְהוָה בָּנִים: שָׂכָר, פְּרִי הַבָּטֶן. 3

Lo, children are a heritage of jehovah; the fruit of the womb is a reward.

*Except Jehovah Build the House They Labour in Vain*

ד כְּחִצִּים בְּיַד-גִּבּוֹר– כֵּן, בְּנֵי הַנְּעוּרִים. 4

As arrows in the hand of a mighty man, so are the children of one’s youth.

*Except Jehovah Build the House They Labour in Vain*

ה אַשְׁרֵי הַגֶּבֶר– אֲשֶׁר מִלֵּא אֶת-אַשְׁפָּתוֹ, מֵהֶם:

לֹא-יֵבֹשׁוּ– כִּי-יְדַבְּרוּ אֶת-אוֹיְבִים בַּשָּׁעַר. 5

Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them; {N}

they shall not be put to shame, when they speak with their enemies in the gate. {P}

*Except Jehovah Build the House They Labour in Vain*
