Context
Unless the Lord Builds

1Except the LORD build the house, they labor in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman wakes but in vain. 2It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows: for so he gives his beloved sleep. 3See, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. 4As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth. 5Happy is the man that has his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.
