New American Standard Bible
3 Behold, (A)children are a [a]gift of the Lord,
The (B)fruit of the womb is a reward.
4 Like arrows in the hand of a (C)warrior,
So are the children of one’s youth.
5 How (D)blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them;
(E)They will not be ashamed
When they (F)speak with their enemies (G)in the gate.
- Psalm 127:3 Or heritage
English Standard Version
3 Behold, (A)children are a heritage from the Lord,
(B)the fruit of the womb a reward.
4 Like arrows in the hand of (C)a warrior
are the children[a] of one's youth.
5 Blessed is the man
who fills his quiver with them!
He shall not be put to shame
when he speaks with his enemies (D)in the gate.[b]
King James Version
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.Read full chapter
