If the Lord does not bless your life plans, all your planing is senseless.
If the Lord does not protect you, to protect yourself is senseless. It is senseless, to worry yourself from morning to night; for God gives everything to his friends in sleep.
Behold, children are a gift of the Lord. To have many children means to be strong. You are lucky, if you have many children, who stand by you! Then they will help you in your old age and you are not alone in the world.
