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.

    May ur name be exolted forever in our life. in jesus name i pray.. Amen, like what my brethren says only God knows our thought..

    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

    I am encouraged, to be reaffirmed in the BIBLE, that GOD will never ever leave or forsake me, my mother died and left me, father also, but HE will Always be there for me, good, bad, or indifferent, HE'S here, Praise HIM for HIS faithfulness even when I'm not!!! I am thoroughly encouraged by this.daily!!!!!🙏❤️😍😘😊👍
