A Song of the Ascents. Of Solomon.
127 Unless Jehovah himself builds the house,+
It is to no avail that its builders have worked hard on it.+
Unless Jehovah himself guards the city,+
It is to no avail that the guard has kept awake.+
2 To no avail it is for YOU men that YOU are rising up early,+
That YOU are sitting down late,+
That YOU are eating food* with pains.+
