 Psalms << Ps : 126 >>The Septuagint (Brenton)

1 Ὠιδὴ τῶν ἀναβαθμῶν· τῷ Σαλωμων.

Ἑὰν μὴ κύριος οἰκοδομήσῃ οἶκον, εἰς μάτην ἐκοπίασαν οἱ οἰκοδομοῦντες αὐτόν·
ἐὰν μὴ κύριος φυλάξῃ πόλιν, εἰς μάτην ἠγρύπνησεν ὁ φυλάσσων.

In Praise of God's Goodness. Psalm 127(v126)A Song of Degrees.
Except the Lord build the house they that build labour in vain:
except the Lord keep the city the watchman watches in vain.
2 εἰς μάτην ὑμῖν ἐστιν τοῦ ὀρθρίζειν,
ἐγείρεσθαι μετὰ τὸ καθῆσθαι,
οἱ ἔσθοντες ἄρτον ὀδύνης,
ὅταν δῷ τοῖς ἀγαπητοῖς αὐτοῦ ὕπνον.
 It is vain for you to rise early:
ye rise up after resting,
ye that eat the bread of grief;
while he gives sleep to his beloved.
3 ἰδοὺ ἡ κληρονομία Κυρίου υἱοί,
ὁ μισθὸς τοῦ καρποῦ τῆς γαστρός.
 Behold, the inheritance of the Lord, children,
the reward of the fruit of the womb.
4 ὡσεὶ βέλη ἐν χειρὶ δυνατοῦ,
οὕτως οἱ υἱοὶ τῶν ἐκτετιναγμένων.
 As arrows in the hand of a mighty man;
so are the children of those who were outcasts.
5 μακάριος ἄνθρωπος, ὃς πληρώσει τὴν ἐπιθυμίαν αὐτοῦ ἐξ αὐτῶν·
οὐ καταισχυνθήσονται, ὅταν λαλῶσι τοῖς ἐχθροῖς αὐτῶν ἐν πύλῃ.
 Blessed is the man who shall satisfy his desire with them:
they shall not be ashamed when they shall speak to their enemies in the gates.
    << | Ps: 126 | >>
