Wesley's Notes for Psalms 127:3


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.

    I have often wondered about this chapter of Psalms. It's like they couldn't sing unto the Lord in presence of the enemy.
  • Evelyn
    Such a Blessed Psalm,gives me great joy everytime I read it.It tells us according to God's word to rejoice at all times.To make a joyful noise ,whenever you read it or hear the word of God.To tell everyone of His everlasting Love for us,it's not only for now but forever more. Amen


    Thank you Jesus for dying on the cross for me.

    This verse shows to me that material things are nothing, unless you have Jehovah God's approval. For places of worship in particular, there is no sense in making grand and lavish churches/ temples. Build it modestly and humbly. The important thing is the quality of worship. Good quality worship = quality Christians = making God happy

    Then meaning of Psalms 146
  • Dilu Goma
    I have been praying for God to change my wife and children for the better so that I will be proud of them(instead of being sad and despairing for their lives), and also that my small businesses will be successful (in bringing in good income), and through this verse God is telling me that the way for these to happen is for me to fear God and obey Him. I really want to do this, please, O Lord.
