Amplified Bible

Psalm 127

Prosperity Comes from the Lord.

A Song of [a]Ascents. Of Solomon.

1Unless the Lord builds the house,
They labor in vain who build it;
Unless the Lord guards the city,
The watchman keeps awake in vain.

It is vain for you to rise early,
To retire late,
To eat the bread of anxious labors—
For He gives [blessings] to His beloved even in his sleep.


Behold, children are a heritage and gift from the Lord,
The fruit of the womb a reward.

Like arrows in the hand of a warrior,
So are the children of one’s youth.

How blessed [happy and fortunate] is the man whose quiver is filled with them;
They will not be ashamed
When they speak with their enemies [in gatherings] at the [city] gate.

Salme 127

Herrens velsignelse over arbejde og hjem

1En valfartssang af Salomon.

Hvis ikke Herren bygger huset,
    er håndværkernes arbejde forgæves.
Hvis ikke Herren vogter byen,
    våger vagterne forgæves.
Det er til ingen nytte at slide og slæbe
    fra tidlig morgen til sen aften,
for Herren sørger for sine, mens de sover,
    han giver dem alt, hvad de har brug for.

Børn er en gave fra Herren,
    efterkommere er en velsignelse.
De børn, man får i sin ungdom,
    vil være til hjælp, når man bliver gammel.
Du er velsignet, hvis du har en stor familie,
    for de kan hjælpe dig, når du kommer under angreb.
