Psalm 127 The Message Bible

Prosperity Comes from the LORD

127 1  If God doesn't build the house, the builders only build shacks. If God doesn't guard the city, the night watchman might as well nap. 2  It's useless to rise early and go to bed late, and work your worried fingers to the bone. Don't you know he enjoys giving rest to those he loves? 3  Don't you see that children are God's best gift? the fruit of the womb his generous legacy? 4  Like a warrior's fistful of arrows are the children of a vigorous youth. 5  Oh, how blessed are you parents, with your quivers full of children! Your enemies don't stand a chance against you; you'll sweep them right off your doorstep.
