The Message

Psalm 126

A Pilgrim Song

11-3 It seemed like a dream, too good to be true,
    when God returned Zion’s exiles.
We laughed, we sang,
    we couldn’t believe our good fortune.
We were the talk of the nations—
    God was wonderful to them!”
God was wonderful to us;
    we are one happy people.

4-6 And now, God, do it again—
    bring rains to our drought-stricken lives
So those who planted their crops in despair
    will shout hurrahs at the harvest,
So those who went off with heavy hearts
    will come home laughing, with armloads of blessing.

诗篇 126

被掳者归回的喜乐

上圣殿朝圣之诗。

1耶和华带领被掳者归回耶路撒冷的时候,
我们犹如在梦中。
我们笑声不止,欢呼歌唱。
列邦都说:
“耶和华为他们成就了伟大的事。”
耶和华实在为我们成就了伟大的事,
我们充满了喜乐。
耶和华啊,
求你恢复我们的繁荣,
就像干旱的南地重现溪流。
含泪撒种的必欢呼着收割。
含泪出去撒种的必欢呼着带回禾捆。
