Tehillim (Book of Psalms), Chapter 127

'"`UNIQ--named-00000000-QINU`"'1 A Song of Ascents; of Solomon. Except HaShem build the house, they labour in vain that build it; except HaShem keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000001-QINU`"'2 It is vain for you that ye rise early, and sit up late, ye that eat the bread of toil; so He giveth unto His beloved in sleep.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000002-QINU`"'3 Lo, children are a heritage of HaShem; the fruit of the womb is a reward.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000003-QINU`"'4 As arrows in the hand of a mighty man, so are the children of one's youth.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000004-QINU`"'5 Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them; they shall not be put to shame, when they speak with their enemies in the gate.
