Psalm 127

Unless the Lord builds the house :
 their labour is but lost that build it.
Unless the Lord keeps the city :
 the watchmen watch in vain.
It is in vain that you rise up early
   and go so late to rest, eating the bread of toil :
 for the Lord bestows honour and on those whom he loves.
Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord :
 and the fruit of the womb is his gift.
Like arrows in the hand of a warrior :
 are the sons of a man’s youth.
Happy the man who has his quiver full of them :
 he will not be put to shame
   when he confronts his enemies at the gate.

Psalm 128

Blessed is everyone who fears the Lord :
 and walks in the confine of his ways.
You will eat the fruit of your labours :
 happy shall you be, and all shall go well with you.
Your wife within your house :
 shall be as a fruitful vine;
Your children around your table :
 like the fresh shoots of the olive.
Behold, thus shall the man be blessed :
 who lives in the fear of the Lord.
May the Lord so bless you from Zion :
 that you see Jerusalem in prosperity all the days of your life.
May you see your children’s children :
 and in Israel let there be peace.

Psalm 129

Many a time from my youth upward
   have they fought against me :
 now may Israel say,
Many a time from my youth upward
   have they fought against me :
 but they have not prevailed.
They have scored my back as with a ploughshare :
 they have opened long furrows.
But the Lord is righteous :
 and he has cut me free from the thongs of the wicked.
They shall be confounded and turned backward :
 all those who hate Zion.
They shall be as the grass that grows upon the housetops :
 which withers before it comes to any good,
With which no reaper may fill his hand :
 nor the binder of sheaves his bosom.
And none who pass by shall say to them
   ‘The blessing of the Lord be upon you :
 we bless you in the name of the Lord.’
