A Journey Through the Psalms and Proverbs

Patty Snow

Patty Snow

Sassy from Homeward Bound, Darla from Little Rascals, and Baronin Maria VonTrapp—those are the three fictional characters my husband describes me as. My name is Patty, and I am a lover of all plants and flowers. I have read countless books on chickens, hoping that one day we have the guts to build our own coop. I also dream of opening my own coffee shop and living in the country. I can convince ANYONE to serve in women's ministry—I have the sweetest little old soul for a child and the sassiest one for a dog.

REST UP, MY BELOVED

Psalm 127

Unless the Lord Builds the House

A Song of Ascents. Of Solomon.

127:1 Unless the Lord builds the house,
those who build it labor in vain.
Unless the Lord watches over the city,
the watchman stays awake in vain.
It is in vain that you rise up early
and go late to rest,
eating the bread of anxious toil;
for he gives to his beloved sleep.

Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord,
the fruit of the womb a reward.
Like arrows in the hand of a warrior
are the children [1] of one's youth.
Blessed is the man
who fills his quiver with them!
He shall not be put to shame
when he speaks with his enemies in the gate. [2] (ESV)

Footnotes

[1] 127:4 Or sons
[2] 127:5 Or They shall not be put to shame when they speak with their enemies in the gate

MEMORY VERSES

Psalm 110:6

He will execute judgment among the nations,
filling them with corpses;
he will shatter chiefs
over the wide earth.
