The Book of Psalms

Psalm 126

Nisi Dominus.

Nothing can be done without God's grace and blessing.


1
A gradual canticle of Solomon. Unless the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it. Unless the Lord keep the city, he watcheth in vain that keepeth it.

2
It is vain for you to rise before light, rise ye after you have sitten, you that eat the bread of sorrow. When he shall give sleep to his beloved,

3
Behold the inheritance of the Lord are children: the reward, the fruit of the womb.

4
As arrows in the hand of the mighty, so the children of them that have been shaken.

5
Blessed is the man that hath filled the desire with them; he shall not be confounded when he shall speak to his enemies in the gate.
