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 146

Praise for God’s Help


1 Praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord, O my soul!
2 I will praise the Lord as long as I live;
   I will sing praises to my God all my life long.


3 Do not put your trust in princes,
   in mortals, in whom there is no help.
4 When their breath departs, they return to the earth;
   on that very day their plans perish.


5 Happy are those whose help is the God of Jacob,
   whose hope is in the Lord their God,
6 who made heaven and earth,
   the sea, and all that is in them;
who keeps faith for ever;
7   who executes justice for the oppressed;
   who gives food to the hungry.


The Lord sets the prisoners free;
8   the Lord opens the eyes of the blind.
The Lord lifts up those who are bowed down;
   the Lord loves the righteous.
9 The Lord watches over the strangers;
   he upholds the orphan and the widow,
   but the way of the wicked he brings to ruin.


10 The Lord will reign for ever,
   your God, O Zion, for all generations.
Praise the Lord!
