View Psalms 127 in the note window.
We must trust in God for success in all enterprizes, ver. 1, 2.
And for children, ver. 3 - 5.
A song of degrees of Solomon.
1: Build - Assist and bless those that build it.
2: You - Builders, or watchmen. To sit - To use constant and
unwearied diligence. So - By his blessing. Giveth - Freely, without
that immoderate toiling, wherewith others pursue it.
3: Children - The chief of these blessings. Heritage - Only from
God's blessing, even as an inheritance is not the fruit of a man's own
labour, but the gift of God.
4: Youth - These he prefers before other children, because they live
longest with their parents, and to their comfort and support, whereas
children born in old age seldom come to maturity before their parents death.
5: Full - Who hath a numerous issue. Shall speak - They shall
courageously plead their cause in courts of judicature, not fearing
to be crushed by the might of their adversaries.
