Psalm 127 Wednesday Evening 3
If Yahweh does not build the palace, * in vain do its builders work on it.
If Yahweh does not guard the city, * in vain does the guard keep vigil.
Failure to you who rise early, * who put off going to bed,
who eat the bread of idols. * But the Reliable gives prosperity to his beloved.
Yes, sons are a boon from Yahweh, * fruit of the womb his reward.
Like the arrows in a warrior's hand * are the sons of one's youth.
Happy the man who has filled * his quiver with them!
He will not be shamed but will repel * his enemies from the gate.
