NET © Notes

sn The metaphor of the fruitful vine pictures the wife as fertile; she will give her husband numerous children (see the next line).

tn One could translate “sons” (see Ps 127:3 and the note on the word “sons” there), but here the term seems to refer more generally to children of both genders.
