The Book of Psalms

  Psalm 126  

126:1 Unless the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it. Unless the Lord keep the city, he watcheth in vain that keepeth it.

126:1 Nisi Dominus aedificaverit domum in vanum laboraverunt qui aedificant eam nisi Dominus custodierit civitatem frustra vigilavit qui custodit

126:2 It is vain for you to rise before light, rise ye after you have sitten, you that eat the bread of sorrow. When he shall give sleep to his beloved,

126:2 Vanum est vobis ante lucem surgere surgere postquam sederitis qui manducatis panem doloris cum dederit dilectis suis somnum

126:3 behold the inheritance of the Lord are children: the reward, the fruit of the womb.

126:3 Ecce hereditas Domini filii mercis fructus ventris

126:4 As arrows in the hand of the mighty, so the children of them that have been shaken.

126:4 Sicut sagittae in manu potentis ita filii excussorum

126:5 Blessed is the man that hath filled the desire with them; he shall not be confounded when he shall speak to his enemies in the gate.

126:5 Beatus vir qui implebit desiderium suum ex ipsis non confundentur cum loquentur inimicis suis in porta
