Psalm 127 New Living Translation

Prosperity Comes from the LORD

127 1  Unless the Lord builds a house, the work of the builders is wasted. Unless the Lord protects a city, guarding it with sentries will do no good. 2  It is useless for you to work so hard from early morning until late at night, anxiously working for food to eat; for God gives rest to his loved ones. 3  Children are a gift from the Lord ; they are a reward from him. 4  Children born to a young man are like arrows in a warrior's hands. 5  How joyful is the man whose quiver is full of them! He will not be put to shame when he confronts his accusers at the city gates.
