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.
