Psalm 127 (WEBP)

[1] Unless Yahweh builds the house, they who build it labor in vain. Unless Yahweh watches over the city, the watchman guards it in vain.
[2] It is vain for you to rise up early, to stay up late, eating the bread of toil, for he gives sleep to his loved ones.
[3] Behold, children are a heritage of Yahweh. The fruit of the womb is his reward.
[4] As arrows in the hand of a mighty man, so are the children of youth.
[5] Happy is the man who has his quiver full of them. They won’t be disappointed when they speak with their enemies in the gate.

Psalm 127 (KJVS)

[1] «A Song H7892 of degrees H4609 for Solomon H8010.» Except the LORD H3068 build H1129 (8799) the house H1004, they labour H5998 (8804) in vain H7723 that build H1129 (8802) it: except the LORD H3068 keep H8104 (8799) the city H5892, the watchman H8104 (8802) waketh H8245 (8804) [but] in vain H7723.
[2] [It is] vain H7723 for you to rise up H6965 (8800) early H7925 (8688), to sit up H3427 (8800) late H309 (8764), to eat H398 (8802) the bread H3899 of sorrows H6089: [for] so he giveth H5414 (8799) his beloved H3039 sleep H8142.
[3] Lo, children H1121 [are] an heritage H5159 of the LORD H3068: [and] the fruit H6529 of the womb H990 [is his] reward H7939.
[4] As arrows H2671 [are] in the hand H3027 of a mighty man H1368; so [are] children H1121 of the youth H5271.
[5] Happy H835 [is] the man H1397 that hath his quiver H827 full H4390 (8765) of them: they shall not be ashamed H954 (8799), but they shall speak H1696 (8762) with the enemies H341 (8802) in the gate H8179.

Young’s Literal Translation

Psalm 127 (YLT)

[1] If Jehovah doth not build the house, In vain have its builders laboured at it, If Jehovah doth not watch a city, In vain hath a watchman waked.
[2] Vain for you who are rising early, Who delay sitting, eating the bread of griefs, So He giveth to His beloved one sleep.
[3] Lo, an inheritance of Jehovah are sons, A reward is the fruit of the womb.
[4] As arrows in the hand of a mighty one, So are the sons of the young men.
[5] O the happiness of the man Who hath filled his quiver with them, They are not ashamed, For they speak with enemies in the gate!
