SEV Biblia, Chapter 127:2 Por demás os es el madrugar a levantaros, el veniros tarde a reposar, el comer pan de dolores; pues que a su amado dará Dios el sueño.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Psalms 126:2 Verse 2. It is vain for you to rise up early ] There seems to be here an allusion to the daily and nightly watches which Nehemiah instituted. The people are worn out with constant labour and watching; he therefore divided them in such a manner, that they who had worked in the day should rest by night, and that they who worked by night should rest in the day; and thus his beloved, a title of the Jews, the beloved of God, got sleep, due refreshment, and rest. As for Nehemiah and his servants, they never put off their clothes day or night but for washing.
Matthew Henry Commentary The value of the Divine blessing.
--Let us always look to God's providence. In all the affairs an business of a family we must depend upon his blessing. 1. For raising family. If God be not acknowledged, we have no reason to expect his blessing; and the best-laid plans fail, unless he crowns them with success. 2. For the safety of a family or a city. Except the Lord kee the city, the watchmen, though they neither slumber nor sleep, wake but in vain; mischief may break out, which even early discoveries may no be able to prevent. 3. For enriching a family. Some are so eager upo the world, that they are continually full of care, which makes their comforts bitter, and their lives a burden. All this is to get money but all in vain, except God prosper them: while those who love the Lord, using due diligence in their lawful callings, and casting all their care upon him, have needful success, without uneasiness of vexation. Our care must be to keep ourselves in the love of God; the we may be easy, whether we have little or much of this world. But we must use the proper means very diligently. Children are God's gifts, heritage, and a reward; and are to be accounted blessings, and no burdens: he who sends mouths, will send meat, if we trust in him. The are a great support and defence to a family. Children who are young may be directed aright to the mark, God's glory, and the service of their generation; but when they are gone into the world, they ar arrows out of the hand, it is too late to direct them then. But thes arrows in the hand too often prove arrows in the heart, a grief to godly parents. Yet, if trained according to God's word, they generall prove the best defence in declining years, remembering their obligations to their parents, and taking care of them in old age. All earthly comforts are uncertain, but the Lord will assuredly comfort an bless those who serve him; and those who seek the conversion of sinners, will find that their spiritual children are their joy an crown in the day of Jesus Christ __________________________________________________________________
