    the builders labor in vain.
Unless the Lord watches over the city,
    the guards stand watch in vain.

    offspring a reward from him.
4 Like arrows in the hands of a warrior
    are children born in one’s youth.
5 Blessed is the man
    whose quiver is full of them.
They will not be put to shame
    when they contend with their opponents in court.
