Psalms 127:3-5

_ _ Posterity is often represented as a blessing from God (Genesis 30:2, Genesis 30:18; 1 Samuel 1:19, 1 Samuel 1:20). Children are represented as the defenders (arrows) of their parents in war, and in litigation.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Psalms 127:1-5.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Psalms 127:3

Children — The chief of these blessings. Heritage — Only from God's blessing, even as an inheritance is not the fruit of a man's own labour, but the gift of God.
