Amplified Bible

Psalm 126

Thanksgiving for Return from Captivity.

A Song of [a]Ascents.

1When the Lord brought back the captives to Zion (Jerusalem),
We were like those who dream [it seemed so unreal].

Then our mouth was filled with laughter
And our tongue with joyful shouting;
Then they said among the nations,
“The Lord has done great things for them.”

The Lord has done great things for us;
We are glad!


Restore our [b]captivity, O Lord,
As the stream-beds in the South (the Negev) [are restored by torrents of rain].

They who sow in tears shall reap with joyful singing.

He who goes back and forth weeping, carrying his bag of seed [for planting],
Will indeed come again with a shout of joy, bringing his sheaves with him.

Salme 126

Guds hjemvendte folk

1En valfartssang.

Da Herren bragte os hjem til Zion,
    var det, som om vi drømte.
Vi lo og jublede, vi sang af glæde.
    Folkeslagene udbrød: „Herren har gjort et under for sit folk!”
Ja, Herren har gjort et under for os,
    vi jubler af glæde.
Herre, velsign os igen og giv os fremgang,
    som regnen fylder de udtørrede floder.
De, der såede med gråd,
    skal høste med glæde.
Grædende spredte de sæden ud,
    syngende bringer de høsten i hus.
