2 It is useless for you to work so hard from early morning until late at night,anxiously working for food to eat; for God gives rest to his loved ones.3 Children are a gift from the LORD; they are a reward from him.4 Children born to a young man are like arrows in a warrior's hands.5 How joyful is the man whose quiver is full of them! He will not be put to shame when he confronts his accusers at the city gates.
“For me, the greatest blessing of the NLT is how it opens up the meaning and impact of the Scriptures to people. I think it is a wonderful translation, and a gift to the Church.”
