Chinese Contemporary Bible (Simplified)

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 Living Translation

Psalm 127

Psalm 127

A song for pilgrims ascending to Jerusalem. A psalm of Solomon.

Unless the Lord builds a house,
    the work of the builders is wasted.
Unless the Lord protects a city,
    guarding it with sentries will do no good.
It is useless for you to work so hard
    from early morning until late at night,
anxiously working for food to eat;
    for God gives rest to his loved ones.

Children are a gift from the Lord;
    they are a reward from him.
Children born to a young man
    are like arrows in a warrior’s hands.
How joyful is the man whose quiver is full of them!
    He will not be put to shame when he confronts his accusers at the city gates.
