Psalm 126

1  When the Lord restored the fortunes of Zion, 
   then were we like those who dream.
2  Then was our mouth filled with laughter 
   and our tongue with songs of joy.
3  Then said they among the nations, 
   ‘The Lord has done great things for them.’
4  The Lord has indeed done great things for us, 
   and therefore we rejoiced.
5  Restore again our fortunes, O Lord, 
   as the river beds of the desert.
6  Those who sow in tears 
   shall reap with songs of joy.
7  Those who go out weeping, bearing the seed, 
   will come back with shouts of joy,
      bearing their sheaves with them.

Psalm 127

1  Unless the Lord builds the house, 
   those who build it labour in vain.
2  Unless the Lord keeps the city, 
   the guard keeps watch in vain.
3  It is in vain that you hasten to rise up early
      and go so late to rest, eating the bread of toil, 
   for he gives his beloved sleep.
4  Children are a heritage from the Lord 
   and the fruit of the womb is his gift.
5  Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, 
   so are the children of one’s youth.
6  Happy are those who have their quiver full of them: 
   they shall not be put to shame
      when they dispute with their enemies in the gate.

Psalm 128

1  Blessed are all those who fear the Lord, 
   and walk in his ways.
2  You shall eat the fruit of the toil of your hands; 
   it shall go well with you, and happy shall you be.
3  Your wife within your house
      shall be like a fruitful vine; 
   your children round your table,
      like fresh olive branches.
4  Thus shall the one be blest 
   who fears the Lord.
5  The Lord from out of Zion bless you, 
   that you may see Jerusalem in prosperity
      all the days of your life.
6  May you see your children’s children, 
   and may there be peace upon Israel.
