A Song of degrees for Solomon.

1 Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.

3 Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.

his reward
4 As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth.
