King Solomon's, the author of Psalm 127, used the bow and arrow symbolism in verses 3-5. There is much to meditate on in this passage from God's Word.

As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth.
Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate."
