1 (A Song of degrees for Solomon.) Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.

2 It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows: for so he giveth his beloved sleep.

3 Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.

4 As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth.

5 Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.

Matthew Henry's Psalms Chapter 127 Bible commentary...



The value of the Divine blessing.

- Let us always look to God's providence. In all the affairs and business of a family we must depend upon his blessing. 1. For raising a family. If God be not acknowledged, we have no reason to expect his blessing; and the best-laid plans fail, unless he crowns them with success. 2. For the safety of a family or a city. Except the Lord keep the city, the watchmen, though they neither slumber nor sleep, wake but in vain; mischief may break out, which even early discoveries may not be able to prevent. 3. For enriching a family. Some are so eager upon the world, that they are continually full of care, which makes their comforts bitter, and their lives a burden. All this is to get money; but all in vain, except God prosper them: while those who love the Lord, using due diligence in their lawful callings, and casting all their care upon him, have needful success, without uneasiness or vexation. Our care must be to keep ourselves in the love of God; then we may be easy, whether we have little or much of this world. But we must use the proper means very diligently. Children are God's gifts, a heritage, and a reward; and are to be accounted blessings, and not burdens: he who sends mouths, will send meat, if we trust in him. They are a great support and defence to a family. Children who are young, may be directed aright to the mark, God's glory, and the service of their generation; but when they are gone into the world, they are arrows out of the hand, it is too late to direct them then. But these arrows in the hand too often prove arrows in the heart, a grief to godly parents. Yet, if trained according to God's word, they generally prove the best defence in declining years, remembering their obligations to their parents, and taking care of them in old age. All earthly comforts are uncertain, but the Lord will assuredly comfort and bless those who serve him; and those who seek the conversion of sinners, will find that their spiritual children are their joy and crown in the day of Jesus Christ.

Rev stanley's Psalms Chapter 127 comment about verse 5 on 10/22/2014, 4:15am...

David was inlove with God who wanted allthe the time to be in touch with God. Many times he cold speak to his soul to atouch with God. Read psm 103. Soul can be wounded by many things and can draw itself away from God.3most things that can draw your soul frm God.1commiting sin can wound ur soul 2 ommiting to do the will of God,mans soul feal guilty. 3 Tough or bad things that ones passes thro.coz Devil uses the situation to discourage ur soul and think may be God is not with u. So David had known that the best thing is to praise God dispise the situation.

I WILL JUST LIKE TO SAY IT IS A BLESSING TO BE BLESSED BY GOD TO EVEN HAVE CHILDREN, I HAVE JUST WENT THROUGH A IVF PROCEDURE IN AUGUST AND I HAD 15 EGGS THAT FERTILIZED THAT IS A TRUE BLESSING FROM GOD. I WENT FROM NEVER FERTILIZING NONE TO 15. THAT 'S A BIG DIFFERENCE. I HAD ONE OF MY EMBRYO 'S TRANSFERED IN MY WOMB ON 10 09 14. AND FROM THAT DAY I CLAIMED MY VICTORY AND MADE MY DECLARATION THAT MY FRUIT SHALL REMAIN IN JESUS NAME. I DO BELIEVE IT IN MY HEART THAT IT WILL REMAIN. I TOOK MY PREGNANCY TEST THIS MORNING AND IN JESUS NAME IT WILL BE MY FIRST POSITIVE PREGNANCY TEST AFTER TRYING FOR 6 YEARS.. GLORY BE TO GOD. ONLY HE BLESSES THE FRUIT OF THE WOMB.

Paulette C.'s Psalms Chapter 127 comment on 10/19/2014, 11:41pm...

This reminds me what I was created to do. No matter what I am going through, the important thing is to put God first even in situation that we can 't understand. If we thank him, before he works it out then we are demonstrating our faith. Allthough things are not what I want is to be, It is not about me or what I want. It is clear of how many diifernt ways to Praise him.
