Trust in providence
Song of Ascents, Solomon.
If Yahweh does not build the house,
in vain the masons toil;
if Yahweh does not guard the city,
in vain the sentries watch.
In vain you get up earlier,
and put off going to bed,
sweating to make a living,
since He provides for His beloved as they sleep.
Sons are a bounty from Yahweh,
He rewards with descendants:
like the arrows in a hero's hand
are the sons you father when young.
Happy the man who has filled his quiver
with arrows of this sort;
in dispute with his enemies at the gate,
he will not be worsted.
