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.

Psalm 126

Psalm 126

A song for those who go up to Jerusalem to worship the Lord.

Our enemies took us away from Zion.
    But when the Lord brought us home,
    it seemed like a dream to us.
Our mouths were filled with laughter.
    Our tongues sang with joy.
Then the people of other nations said,
    “The Lord has done great things for them.”
The Lord has done great things for us.
    And we are filled with joy.

Lord, bless us with great success again,
    as rain makes streams flow in the Negev Desert.
Those who cry as they plant their crops
    will sing with joy when they gather them in.
Those who go out weeping
    as they carry seeds to plant
will come back singing with joy.
    They will bring the new crop back with them.
