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.

Psalms 126

Psalm 126

Återställd lycka

1En vallfartssång.

När Herren förde tillbaka Sions fångar,

var det som om vi drömde.

2Vi skrattade högt och sjöng av glädje, vi jublade.

Bland folken sades det:

Herren har gjort stora ting för dem!”

3Ja, Herren har gjort stora ting med oss,

och vi är glada.

4Återställ vår lycka, Herre,

liksom bäckarna i Negev!

5De som sår med tårar

ska få skörda med glädje.

6Gråtande går de ut med säden de ska så,

men med jubel kommer de tillbaka och bär sina kärvar.
