Psalm 127

Religious wedding reading


1 Unless the Lord builds the house, 
those who build it labour in vain.

2 Unless the Lord keeps the city, 
the guard keeps watch in vain.

3 It is in vain that you hasten to rise up early
and go so late to rest, eating the bread of toil, 
for he gives his beloved sleep.

4 Children are a heritage from the Lord 
and the fruit of the womb is his gift.

5 Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, 
so are the children of one’s youth.

6 Happy are those who have their quiver full of them: 
they shall not be put to shame
when they dispute with their enemies in the gate.
