诗篇 127

颂赞上帝的美善

所罗门上圣殿朝圣之诗。

1若不是耶和华建造房屋,
建造者的工作都是徒劳。
若不是耶和华保护城池,
守城者保持警觉也是徒然。
你早起晚睡,
为生活操劳也是徒然,
唯有耶和华所爱的人才能安眠。
儿女是耶和华所赐的礼物,
孩子是祂所给的赏赐。
人年轻时生的儿女犹如战士手中的箭。
袋中装满了箭的人有福了!
他们在城门与仇敌争论时,
必不致蒙羞。

New American Standard Bible

Psalm 127

Prosperity Comes from the Lord.

A Song of 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 up early,
To [a]retire late,
To eat the bread of [b]painful labors;
For He gives to His beloved even in his sleep.

Behold, children are a [c]gift of the Lord,
The fruit of the womb is a reward.
Like arrows in the hand of a warrior,
So are the children of one’s youth.
How blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them;
They will not be ashamed
When they speak with their enemies in the gate.
