Context
NETBible

Your wife will be like a fruitful vine 1  in the inner rooms of your house; your children 2  will be like olive branches, as they sit all around your table.

XREF

Ge 49:22; Ps 52:8; Ps 127:5; Ps 144:12; Pr 5:15-18; Jer 11:16; Eze 19:10; Ho 14:6,7; Ro 11:24

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.
