Chinese Contemporary Bible (Traditional)

詩篇 127

頌讚上帝的美善

所羅門上聖殿朝聖之詩。

1若不是耶和華建造房屋,
建造者的工作都是徒勞。
若不是耶和華保護城池,
守城者保持警覺也是徒然。
你早起晚睡,
為生活操勞也是徒然,
唯有耶和華所愛的人才能安眠。
兒女是耶和華所賜的禮物,
孩子是祂所給的賞賜。
人年輕時生的兒女猶如戰士手中的箭。
袋中裝滿了箭的人有福了!
他們在城門與仇敵爭論時,
必不致蒙羞。

King James Version

Psalm 127

1Except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.

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.

Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.

As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth.

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.
