127:3 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.

    This chapter clearly expresses how to praise God as the last chapter set it up and then 150 sums it up God referenced music to be used to praise him and dance using certain instruments as well I don't think we ever have to question how he wants us to praise him he talks about loud too he says,also in the congregations
    A lot of churches don't emphasize this certain and important way God wants prayer
