The Psalms

Prosperity Comes from the LORD
A Song of degrees for Solomon.

1  Except the LORD build the house,
they labor in vain that build it:
except the LORD keep the city,
the watchman waketh but in vain.
2  It is vain for you to rise up early,
to sit up late,
to eat the bread of sorrows:
for so he giveth his beloved sleep.
3  Lo, children are a heritage of the LORD:
and the fruit of the womb is his reward.
4  As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man;
so are children of the youth.
5  Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them:
they shall not be ashamed,
but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.
