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.

Mawu a Mulungu mu Chichewa Chalero

Masalimo 127

Nyimbo yoyimba pokwera ku Yerusalemu. Salimo la Solomoni.

1Yehova akapanda kumanga nyumba,
    omanga nyumbayo agwira ntchito pachabe.
Yehova akapanda kulondera mzinda,
    mlonda akanangolondera pachabe.
Mumangodzivuta nʼkulawirira mmamawa
    ndi kusagona msanga madzulo,
kuvutikira chakudya choti mudye,
    pakuti Iye amapereka tulo kwa amene amawakonda.

Ana ndiye cholowa chochokera kwa Yehova,
    ana ndi mphotho yochokera kwa Iye.
Ana a pa unyamata ali ngati mivi mʼmanja
    mwa munthu wankhondo.
Wodala munthu
    amene motengera mivi mwake mwadzaza.
Iwo sadzachititsidwa manyazi
    pamene alimbana ndi adani awo pa zipata.
